A Job Interview That I'm Truly Looking Forward To

I got a call from a woman back in December about a job I applied for that sounded like a perfect use of my skills. I don't want to go into too many details, but when it comes to dealing with death, empathy is the preferred course of action, not apathy. Seeing as how that was one of the reasons I left medical school, it sounded perfect.

But I didn't get the message. I have since vowed to check my messages as soon as I get them. I'm still working on that. I currently have 4 unheard voicemails... But anyway, when I finally called her back, I heard no response. I figured I had missed the boat and the job had gone to someone else. This frustrated me, but I kept it moving and continued applying for every job that sounded close to a good idea.

But I got an e-mail from the woman earlier today. She said they'd had a hiring freeze before and now were looking to fill that same position I had previously applied for. I was over the moon. She asked if she could set up a telephone interview and I let her know we should do it right then. We talked and she seemed to like me and think I was good enough to go to the next step of the interview process.

So now I have an in-person interview this Friday. I'm not saying more because I don't want to jinx it. But I'm so excited because this is the first opportunity I've really had at a job that strikes my fancy. I'd be doing work that uses some of the skills I learned while in medical school and college. And I'd be making a real difference in the world around me.

Can you tell I'm excited? Even if this doesn't pan out like I want it to, it's the fact that I finally got an interview that is for a job I'd really really want. Yay!
