More interview goodness...

Sent out some resumes a few weeks ago and basically forgot about them. Got a phone call today (actually, somehow the guy said my # wasn't on my resume, so he tracked me through my mom's work fax, which is how I sent the resumes) and ended up having a half hour phone interview with a paper in Winterhaven Florida for a sports writer/copy editor position.

It would be great if this job worked out, but I'm most excited about even getting the phone call. Basically, it means that I'm actually a viable commodity on the journalism market.

I'm pretty sure I could categorically say that if I'm offered this job I'm off to it in an instant. This position is the absolute best I could hope for with my limited experience, especially since it's been at least a year off. It's a stellar opportunity.

The guy asked how quickly I could be down there, which was crazy to even think about. So I suppose technically in a month I could be relocated. But that's gettinw way ahead of the game.

And honestly, I'm really just buoyed by the interest. Maybe I'm not doomed to loser journalist hell forever.

I'm in a "newspaper family." Let me tell you, they typically don't give much time on the relocation. When we moved to Orlando, we had a month to get there. We have five weeks to get to Tuscaloosa. That's just the way they roll.

Oh yeah, I totally know that and I'm ok with it. When I moved home in May when my dad was sick I decided to leave and was home within a week, so I'm actually already familiar with the idea.

This sounds cool, good luck.

Yeah, I really really want this job, and now I've told like everyone about it, so of course I won't get it, which will not only be super disappointing, but then will also make me look like more of a jobless loser and so more embarassment will ensue. Next time, maybe I just won't tell anyone.
