(Update 11.17.2008: I’ve decided to split up this post into two parts in order to allow for parts of this previously PWP post to be finally visible.)

So today was the big day. The interview for that Out-of-State job I applied for. For the company that my former Director and now new VP of said company helped arrange for me. I must admit, I was perfectly calm heading into town, but the nerves got the best of me early this morning. I was freaking out, if I’m being completely honest.

But reading all your words, and knowing that you guys were rooting for me … and having Hubby there to help calm my nerves … well, I took comfort in that. So thank you all, from the bottom of my heart.

It turns out, I didn’t need to be so worried. Not saying that I nailed the interview … but let’s just say that things ended up going real well. I was initially set up to interview for an RN Case Manager position, but as I expressed interest in a Supervisor position and the Manager that was interviewing saw I had supervisory experience … well, she took it upon herself to interview me for both positions. and she set up another interview immediately afterwards with the Physician Medical Directors. Now … that part made me a little nervous, but I think I managed to win them over. And it certainly helped that my ex-Director picked that moment to take a break from his schedule of meetings to stop in and say hi to me. Kissmet, I tell you!

Anyway, I’ve been told that they want to set up one more interiew with me; with the Director of their department. Unfortunately, it will have to be at another date … and could possibly be set up as a phone interview … as she wasn’t available today.

So that’s the next step in the process. And I’m expecting to hear about setting that up within the next couple of weeks. Until then, I’m in a holding pattern. But at least I can exhale for the time being.
