Unexpected phone call

by Janet

I received a suprise phone call this afternoon. I had sent my resume to a Chiropractor for a part time job that I found on craigslist as a receptionist, which is something that I have never done. I am an Accounts Payable and Records Management person but want to do something different, plus I do not want all the stress that goes with accounts payable. I was very honest in the e-mail that I sent and one of the things I said was "if you consider me for the job that is great and if you do not that is okay with me". I have an interview Wednesday at 12:45 PM. I was very honest with her when she called me this afternoon and told her that I was a widow and I was looking for a part time job to keep me busy. It turns out that she lost her father not to long ago so she kind of knows where I am coming from as her mom is going through this. I hope this is a good sign because I actually did not expect a reply back or a phone call. I have found that when I am searching for jobs that I am completely honest with them, more so than in the past.

I plan on booking my flight to Belize via Cancun, Mexico after I have the interview. I explained to her that I was planning on returning to Belize this summer for two weeks. She is leaving next week for Ambergrise Caye, Belize. She perfers the island and I perfer Northern Belize. More relaxing there. Have a ride from the border when I get there and a place to stay. Belizeans and expats are wonderful people and they take care of their own. I wish we had more of that here.

I am so looking forward to the interview and it is only about 6 miles from the house. I will not get my hopes up but it is nice to know that at the age of 64 people still want to interview you for a job. I felt like we had a good conversation and did not get any negative vibes. Hopefully things are looking up.
