Daily MelWear: Black and White and Purple All Over

Guess what?!

I had an interview yesterday! Those of you that follow me on Twitter know about this already but for those who don't, I'll fill you in.

The girl that I interact with most at this department was emailing me yesterday morning to let me know that the position should be posted online. I kept looking for it and so did she but it never went through for me to officially apply.  Regardless, the director emailed me to ask if I could interview with her in the afternoon.

My interview was at 1PM and went REALLY well.  She already knows me from the work that I'm currently doing (we need to submit our studies to this department for approval, as well as any changes, protocol deviations, monitor reports, etc.) so she's familiar with the work that I produce. What she decided to do instead of a formal interview was go over the job description with me.  Honestly, what I heard most was "newsletters in MS Publisher, prepare PowerPoint presentations, assist with conference arrangements" and some other things that I have experience with but haven't had an opportunity to use in my current job.

She's hoping to make a decision soon but she needs to find out from HR how many interviews she will have to perform before she can decide.  She also wants me to meet with another manager from a different department this morning; that is scheduled for 8:30AM. 

The BEST part is that this department is closed on Fridays, so I could maintain my current schedule and keep my Friday Mommy Days with my girl!

I don't want to get my hopes up...but I'm getting my hopes up.
