I'm not 100% sure, but I am fairly certain that the job I just interviewed for will be offered to me.
But when you interview, shouldn't they be selling you on the job while you sell them on you in the job?
When he told me that I wouldn't be able to get it done in 40 hours a week and would be more like 60 and that "There is no such thing as a sick day" in this position, my knee jerk reaction was, "oh my, is that the time...gotta go..."
I didn't do that, of course, but really felt like it.
It brought me back to a show I auditioned for back in my first few days in Chicago. The director said,"If my production of Midsummer Night's Dream is not the most important thing in your life right now, there's the door."
I SOOO wanted to walk out then too. I mean, I love theatre. I love acting and I really want to succeed. But is it the MOST important thing in my life? Abso-freaking-lutely not. And I've met people for whom that IS true...and they are total whack jobs.
..and this job I just interviewed for? I am hearing the potential boss say similar things - and I DON'T have passion for that job. I'm not sure that this job is in the top 5 of my priorities.
Don't get me wrong. I'll work hard. I'll do a good job. But will I give up all my other interests and relationships to ensure the success of this program? No freakin' way.
And if that means the position passes me up? The position passes me up.
Could they just give me the money and I'll stay here?
