But I have two job interviews and I am seriously on the cusp of throwing up, especially the one that is out of state and is a dream gig.

I need alot of prayers please!

Well that was a crapshoot, apparently I had to be at the location to do an interview but there's no way I can get the funds to fly out or take time off. Oh well, sucks because that would have been a great move for my "career".

Now I gotta try and ace the Friday interview. I'm kind of cocky about it because I think I can do really well.

Alright today is the day, 35 more minutes. I'm fairly confident, but I am trying so hard not to be cocky. I really need prayers for the latter right now.

Just got back. I kind of surprised them with knowing as much about the company as I do.

But looks like they did alot of interviews yesterday. I know I did better than a co-worker of mine who applied, because the interviewer told me.

I have good feeling, but I hate being this cocky. Like I act I got the job, it's terrible. My ego is way too big. I need to get humility, humility, humility.

Sent a thank you note as well.

Dear Achronos,

I hope you are offered the job.  Can work on humility if you do or if you don't.

Didn't get it. I was next on the list and if they have an opening 3-6 months from now I'll get a call with an offer and no interview.

I really needed this. Now I am sunken more into my depression.

Every negative thing that happened to me during my employment career, a job was "eliminated" in early 2004, at my favorite position I worked, I was politely ("You're a nice guy, but I have to open up some of these jobs for my people") dismissed in 2007 because I was affiliated with the wrong political party, these and other negative experiences resulted in me landing a low paying job which I only worked for 10 months because the employer unexpectedly offered a "but out" to employees in 2009 who had exactly the seniority in the retirement system that I had.  I consider it a an unsolicited gift from God.  My pension is based on the average of the three highest years of salary I earned, the favorite job I mentioned was where I made more than I ever made, and I worked in that job position for 3 years and 6 weeks.  You never know what seemingly negative experiences can end up being quite the opposite.

You know you need humility, I was quite humbled by the low paying, clerk's job I had to accept (there were no other options after a 6.5 month job search while I was unemployed) in 2008, and 10 months later, I hit the lottery so to speak.

I had a job interview last monday and still haven't heard from them despite the wonderful hopes up they gave me. I know exactly how you feel! I tell myself that maybe God didn't let it happen because there is something better out there  Grin Grin Grin. Try to stay positive and work towards your next step.

Lord have mercy! May He grant you the desires of your heart!
