New Year, New Start, New Goals

January 20th, 2008 at 02:37 am

So how are you coming along on your new goals for 2008? I'm doing well so far. I updated my Roth contributions and the first increased contribution went out on the 15th. My 457 contributions have remained steady until I hopefully get a new job, and a raise. I opened a CD on the 5th as part of my emergency fund. I haven't received any tax forms yet. I'm waiting on receiving my tax refund to pay off my credit cards. So far, so good.

Interview pt. II

The interview went well. I was there about an hour and a half. It didn't feel like it. I answered some questions with a panel of 5 people that I would be working with. When I went to sign out of the builing I recognized the name of the other person that they were interviewing for the job. I've known her for several years and she was actually one of the people that trained me when I was in doing my clinical rotations. She has more experience and seniority than I do so I wasn't hopeful at that point. I even came home and started browsing more positions.

A few days later the lead interviewer called and left a message on my answering machine. When we finally got back together on the phone a few days later she had more follow-up questions for me. Rightly or wrongly, I was completely honest in answering her questions. I didn't want to waste her time or mine. Basically she wanted to know if I had other aspirations besides this position and I do, absolutely. So we'll see where that goes. Judging on the lack of communication, it's not going anywhere. That's fine. I'm not stopping on my quest for a new job.
