Interview # 2 - Job Offer

Well, I received a call for a second interview. I interviewed yesterday with a Regional Vice President for the company, and it went really well. He told me that some of the answers I gave were the best that he had heard yet. He also mentioned that I had a really good personality, seemed fun, and would fit in really well. He told me that he would give me a "thumbs up" to the hiring manager. At the end of the interview he noted that they had done first interviews with 45 people already, and I was one of four people brought back for a second interview. Of the three other people, one of them was not hired.

Well, the good word was put in, and I was offered the job today. So, being in a group of three people chosen from 45 candidates is not bad at all. I will take it! The starting pay is decent, and the company seems really solid and employee / family-focused. I will start my new position (Sales Assistant for Great-West Life and Annuity, FASCore Division)on Monday, March 10th. I will be giving my two-weeks notice to the school on this coming Monday. I am allowing myself a two week break prior to starting back to work full-time. I deserve that, right?

Outside of that...not much to report. We are all doing well. Skiing has been ultra-fantastic. Dog is goofy. Husband is handsome and lovely-as-ever. Life is good!
