Interviews

Today I did something I haven't done in over 11 years. I interviewed with a company that wasn't Bob's Hogs and Weiner Pigs.

It was simultaneously terrifying and rewarding at the same time.

I was scared to death the interviewer was going to stop dead in the middle of our conversation and scream, "Fraud! What the hell do you think you're doing interviewing for this job?! You aren't qualified for this!" But she never did. In fact, she invited me to tour their facility tomorrow and if all goes well I'll interview with the President of the company as one of the top three candidates for the position.

She said very nice things about my resume, which I had emailed to her at 2 AM last night and she called me about at 10 this morning. I took that as a good sign. The job would be similar to what I'm doing now; I would get to office from home, have a laptop, a cell phone (I wonder if I could wrangle a Blackberry out of them?), a company credit card, get paid mileage, etc. I would travel a bit for training to Phoenix and possibly Chicago, which would be fun. It potentially sounds like doing my job now, but without all the stress...

I also sent out my resume to two other places. One I see as a long-shot job with a big company doing some really exciting things. I happened to meet and connect with someone who knows a hiring manager there who has passed on my resume. The other is a job that I may or may not fit well with. It's geared heavily toward marketing and consists of some things I've never done before (photo shoots, etc.). We'll see what happens.

Now the question arises - what if I get one of these jobs and I want to see what comes of the other one or two? How do you balance this stuff?

I am no good at this.

Okay, you sent in your resume at 2AM, received a callback at 10AM, and interviewed at 1PM.

Yeah, I think they like you.

On the "do I hold out?" question ... there's no perfect answer. You have to go with your gut. If you do get an offer, ask how long you have to think it over -- especially as it's your first job jump in 11 years. Then call the other folks and see how far along they are, explain that you've had an offer and didn't want to jump too soon if they are near a decision ... etc. etc. etc.

Good luck.
