I’ve been trying to decide what to write on today. I could write about that idiot in Kentucky who is refusing to issue marriage licenses, even under a court order, but thinking of her stupidity isn’t worth my time. Plus, nobody seems to be worried about the dozen or so Alabama probate judges who aren’t issuing licenses. I could talk about some of the books I’ve read recently, but quite honestly, I’m not up to it.
Truthfully, there is only one thing on my mind, it’s the results of my job interview last Thursday. I know the interview went well, but did the other candidates do as well? Did they have qualifications that I didn’t? When will I know something? I honestly believe that I am a perfect fit for this job. I hope they do too. I should know something by the end of today. I’d been told they were interviewing two other candidates this week and would make a decision this week. They want to fly someone up next week for an on-site visit. They need someone soon, and from what I gathered, they are not expecting to hire locally. To get someone up next week, they will need to make the arrangements fairly soon, which in my thinking would be not later than today, but I may be wrong. I do not believe they will wait until Friday because they have a big event scheduled for that day. So it should be today or tomorrow.
I am so nervous. I have gotten so many rejection letters, and I really don’t want to hear from these people, “While we were very impressed with your qualifications, we were faced with a difficult decision, and I regret to inform you that we finally selected another candidate who we believe more closely matches what we are looking for in the position.” I am tired of hearing how impressed someone is with my credentials, but that I’m just not what they are looking for. I need, not just want, but need someone to say, “We want you!” One of the things that I enjoyed about my interview Thursday was that they seemed to be trying to convince me that I’d want to move up there and take the job just as much as I was trying to convey how much I thought I’d be the perfect fit.
I just need to be patient. Also, I will continue to pray about the situation.
