It happened really really quick. I went into Robert Half Technologies yesterday morning for some paperwork, a short interview and some tests on HTML/PHP/ASP. My scores were mostly above average (verses all the other people who have taken the same tests) Before I could even be walked to the elevator, someone came by and said they had just submitted me for a job! By the afternoon it had all been decided
Seems like I'll be starting a long term web contract job midweek!!!

I've never done pure consultant work, but it just may suit this time in my life.

They still have to check my references, but that should go fine. Then a couple days finishing up the clerical temp job, and woo!

woo!

I'm at a coffee shop I used to work above, oh, 5 years ago. Eating a tuna sandwich and carrot chipotle soup. I've decided I'm going to work more on my portfolio tonight. I plan on adding a version of my resume, and playing around with some ajax and perhaps flash + database stuff.

What exactly do I need to learn to be indispensable to people?

Art night this week was fantastic. We made it out to Pasqual's and enjoyed some pre-art margaritas. Then we had a fantastic time, arting, laughing, listening to music, watching Eli walk!! (his second day of walking!!) I love these fantastic people.

Well, I'm going to finish my sandwich now, eat my soup and drink my mocha, and see what unfolds tonight.

Be warm everyone!

Ok, my phone interview went so well on Friday that they wanted me to come in tomorrow! I have purchased my very first interviewing suit, and will look fantastic.

Okokokokok. Excited, and leetle bit nervous. However, I know I can do this job, and it sounds like they need me. This could be very cool.

/luck!

Wai!

Ok, I have a phone interview today at noon. It's for a position with a creative company, and I'd love for it to go well. May only be temp work, but in a field much closer to where I'd like to direct a career.

Wish me luck!

My halloween:
Dinner at the spooky decorated downtown Great Dane, where I had an awesome steak, a taste of pumpkin spice ale(eh), and rather nice dinner conversation with my hubby.

Then I headed out to Escape Java, where I got to see various members of the studio, and where I kicked a whole lot of php butt in a super focused mode brought on by a yummy mocha latte, and fabulous friendiness. Also of note, they were showing 'The Abyss' on the wall outside the store, cold night for it, but really cool.

Also learned that the job I want -Called my References!. So, a whole lot of crossed fingers, toes and other body parts(you think on that).

Ok, off to the temp job. I am currently excel monkey, yay for macros.

So... I'm temping, I'm doing receptionist work mon-wed, filing thursday and transcription friday. The work is pleasant enough, and keeps me busy. I am, really tired.

I am also quite down about not hearing back from several places I've submitted my resume to.

I'm set up for 1-2 weeks though, starting monday, at a place where a friend works, so... that's how things stand.

I need a personal cheerleader. Cheer has been low recently.

Carlo is cooking steak and rolls tonight, though, which is pleasant.

After my interview last week, I was spirited off to Ohio by my mom. It was a whirlwind of family, and back again. I saw almost all my cousins(and their kids!), and my mom got to go her class reunion. I drove part of the 8 hours back, and I must say... I have officially driven stick for too long. You know this when you try to clutch on an automatic vehicle your mom has just bought. eee! Almost had to tie my left leg to the seat, to keep from clutching the brake.

Monday, one cousin I didn't see in Ohio was actually in Madison, so we did dinner over at Mom's and then went out to The Great Dane, it was great to see her, even though I was still travel-tired from the long weekend.

Thursday!!! I had an interview for a job that really suits me. I feel I did the best I could, and really am crossing my fingers and holding my breath for it.

Thursday was also [livejournal.com profile] smuga's birthday, and there were margaritas, quesadilla's and chocolate torte truffel birthday cake to be had, and we snuck some Heroes fan moments in there too.

whew. things fly by so fast, I want to remember, so I jot them down.

ooh, it is winnnnndy out there, and cold! and there are icicles on some of the trees!!!

Had an interview with a different company today, for usability testing. Interviewer was really cool. Could be interesting work.

Have a neat interview next thursday.

I'm heading to Ohio for the weekend, my Mom is heading to her high school reunion, and I'm tagging along. Will see some family, and get to hang with mom, while hubby holds down the fort here.

eee, gotta finish packing! Have a great weekend, my friendies.
