Tanked…

JEEZ!  Every went to an interview and just KNEW that you blew it??  I did that today…I applied for a Environmental Assistant job here on Post.  I am looking for something other than Secretary…I want the opportunity to move up and not stay stagnant in a position.  Trust me…it is not fun at all being stuck in Government Secretary Hell.  I must admit I am so stuck in this series right now…I think I will retire from the Government as a Secretary.  Anyway…I was pleasantly surprised that they called me in for an interview today.  He told me that my resume was among the top candidates…and that made me happy.  This job has clerical aspects to it and that is what I thought he would get into…NOPE!  He talked at great length about what everyone else does…except what the position I was interviewed for does.  So I am sitting there with this stupid smile on my face…nodding and smiling at the appropriate times.  Ask me what in the HELL he was talking about??  I couldn’t tell you…he could have been speaking Mandarin Chinese at me and I would be sitting there smiling and nodding.  Everything that the position involves I have done before…just when he started in on the OTHER systems…that was when I lost him.  The ending question…What can you do to improve our organization??  What in the Hell kind of question is that??  I had no idea what to say…so I smile and say “Right now I can’t say that I could IMPROVE the organization but with time and training I feel I will become a valuable asset.”  I was waiting for him to call Bullshit…because I didn’t answer the question at all.  Just sat there with the Dog-Looking-At-The-Answering-Machine Look on my face WONDERING how in the hell I ended up there.  Sigh…something good will come around and I know that it will be the job that I am looking for…
How much you wanna bet this guy calls me and offers me the position??  LOL…A job that I still have no clue what in the hell it requires.  I guess I will become one of the many out there that hold positions and still can’t tell you what they do.    It was nice to be considered for a job that isn’t a Secretary… hopefully I will get a call for something that I know I will rock at…
🙂 (At least I was finally able to wear this nice pink outfit that I bought in Germany…first time wearing it and I looked fabulous!)
Later!
