I've talked before about trying to find a job in this tough economy. It appears there may be a breakthrough! I got a call last Tuesday from a bank I had applied at a couple weeks ago. They set up a phone interview for Wednesday. During the interview I deviated from a couple of the questions a bit and felt like I was rambling but apparently I did okay because they set up a face to face interview for this morning.
It took me about 45 minutes to get there and when I showed up there were a few big buildings with multiple entrances. I finally found the right area to be, went in and told the guard who I was there to see and then proceeded to wait nervously in the lobby while appearing to be calm, cool and collected. : ) I interviewed with two guys and they did not ask the questions I thought they would. In fact, they asked one question that I've never been asked in an interview. The question was, "Have you ever gone out of your way to help a stranger?" I told them some things I did and then they asked why I did those things. I said that I did them because I would want someone to do that for me. Treat others as you want to be treated yourself. One interviewer looked at the other one and asked if he heard what I said. He said he did and that he was writing it down. Guess that was a good thing? At the end of the interview, I saw one of the guys write "Key" at the top of his note pages. I'm hoping that means that I'm a key contender? Now I'm playing the waiting game and hoping I hear something soon.
I've been meaning to call my grandparents on my dad's side for awhile now. I found out in February that they were getting divorced. They've been married for over 50 years! I knew that their divorce would be final by May 1st and I wanted to see the two of them together at their house before all of this was final. My Grandma called me Friday night from a new number and said that she had already moved out. She invited me over for Sunday dinner yesterday so I went. After we ate, she asked if I wanted to see Grandpa. I did, of course, so she told me to call him and ask him if it was okay that we came by. He didn't mind so her and I went over.
