Archive for December, 2007

I got my first interview! The lady emailed me on Tuesday saying that she had received my application and wanted to interview me. She would be out of the office Wednesday and wanted me to contact her Thursday. Well, she ended up calling me on Thursday at 7:30 in the morning because she wanted to make sure to catch me. She didn't have to worry as I get off at midnight. I had only been asleep for a few hours so I hope that I was coherent. The interview is January 9th. I'm the first interviewee. I don't know how many positions they are interviewing for, if there are multiple positions.

It would involve some local travel, which would be my only drawback. I'm already putting a lot of my miles on my new car to get to graduate school. Hopefully they provide a car. I also hope that they will be understanding og me attending graduate school. When I'm at work I'm totally there, but I need my off-time to be for school.

December is always a big month for me, but even more so this year. I turned 30 on the 5th of this month. I finished my first year of graduate school and for the first time in over 7 years I'm looking for a new job. I'm so excited about all the changes happening in my life right now.

I'm really concentrating on growing my income by working smart, rather than just hard. Which means I'm advancing my career rather than just working a lot of overtime. I think I'm on the right track.

Sallie Mae is a bad, bad girl

So my final payment to Sallie Mae was finally processed after 4 days. Unfortunately, they also processed my regular automatic payment. So I have a credit sitting in my account that they refuse to return to me until they finish "processing" my loan. In 30-45 days! Never again.

As well, they always credited my extra payments that I sent through the mail to interest as well as principal. Now I'll pay the principal online and save myself the postage. My graduate school loans aren't to be in repayment until six months after I graduate at the end of 2008.
