I’ve spent the past few days debating whether or not I wanted to write about this. I don’t want to jinx anything, and I don’t want to get too excited knowing that nothing is final at this point. But I’ve decided to go ahead and write. I’m really excited about it and so naturally, it’s something I want to share.
I had a job interview last Thursday. A really, really, really good job interview.
If I said I have never wanted a job this bad in my entire life, I wouldn’t be exaggerating at all. I think this job and I are a perfect fit.
I would be working for a private counseling firm that is contracted through the public schools. That means I would work in a school setting and provide counseling services to the students, but still receive weekly supervision at the private office.
My long term career plans are to work with children and their families in a private practice, so I think this would be a perfect “first job”. I would gain experience working with kids, but also be involved with their parents, peers, and teachers.
Also, the pay for this job is much higher than I expected, the benefits are good, and since it’s a school setting, I would work on school hours (meaning I’d be done by 4pm at the latest every day) and still get SUMMER VACATION!
The interview lasted an hour and I became more and more convinced that I wanted this job. I was even more excited when I left the building.
I should hear back by the middle of this week so they can start calling my references.
Any good thoughts or prayers would be HUGELY appreciated!
