It's just one of those days, you get two posts for the price of one! I have so much to say about life's happenings and yet, I don't seem to have time to sit down and write. One reader commented when I was in Spain asking how my interview went and where I was. Well, I was in Spain... living life to the fullest. As for the interview, it went well. I heard today that I am in a holding pattern. I suppose that is always better than the great reject. I interviewed well and my resume is with a couple of managers, so we are simply waiting for their verdict. I should know by next Friday, and trust me, I'm just as nervous as I was when I was waiting to hear from schools. That pattern never seems to die. (And perhaps just as excited about this prospect as I was about Darden...)
On another front, I landed two more interviews, which will be held at a conference in Atlanta this coming Friday. Both are great companies, so we will see how that goes. Crossing my fingers something works out though I don't think I've hit total breakdown yet. At the same time, I was contemplating the delayed timing of the process this year. We're still at approximately 50% offer rate. Typically I think we're more like 75% at this time of year. It isn't that I'm worried I won't find anything as I do know that I'm very capable. At this point, it's just a lot to juggle as I still have Q4 classes and in a "normal" year, I'd likely be done with the process. Of course, with the economy moving the way it is (yes, the Fed is actually going to buy US Treasuries!?!), I'm not sure normal will ever be as we remember it.
