User Topic: Lost job - have interviews...Mojo please!

Haven't been on in awhile. My position was eliminated on Oct. 22nd (11 years in healthcare...non-clinical...and they are eliminated positions right and left with more to come)

I was working toward my BA in Organizational Studies through a cohort between my company and a very prestigious college here but had to put it on hold because of the displacement.

However they did give me a pretty good deal if you have to be in this situation. 30 days pay and benefits, 10 weeks severence, all my ETO paid out, and free internal and external recruiters to help me find something else.

I have two interviews this week already within the same company. The one tomorrow is probably too far away and I don't have the pay grade scale but I don't think it it would pay me to drive that far. The interview I have Thurs is almost perfect for me. Very close to home, the job sounds interesting and it is the hospital where both my parents spent so much time when they were alive so I feel very comfortable there. However, the job pay scale on this one tops out at what I make now (but I'd save a ton on gas money and could look for something else later on down the road if I needed more)

So if you are of the praying persuasion, please say some for me. If not, please cross your fingers, do a voodoo dance or whatever it is you do to wish someone well for a job interview!

Well the interviews went well. The first interview for the job far away was great but the position was not challenging, $4/hr less than the other job and far away. They even said I'd be bored to death but that they sure wish they had something else and would keep their ears/eyes open for me.

The other interview, the one close to home at the hospital my parents spent so much of their last years - that interview went even better. I really have a good feeling about it.(and ironically, it was in the outpatient OR where I literally could take the interviewer on a tour instead of the other way around since I've spent so mucht time there). I have been invited back Tuesday for a peer interview with the supervisor, lead and one other person. I think this is a good sign.

If I get this position, I will have to stick at the same rate of pay I made at my displacement 2 weeks ago but I'd get a one time payout per year as a raise since I'd be at the top of the pay grade. But that is ok - it's like a $2 raise in how much gas money I'd save. Plus since both of these positions are with the company I currently work for, if they hire me before Nov. 22nd, my insurance stays intact with no interruption, I can resume college for my degree and it would be just considered a transfer. It would be a very challenging position and I'm sure could lead to better things once I finish with my degree.

I will let you all know how it goes Tuesday...keep the mojo flowing!

UPDATE!

I did not get any of those jobs. However, I ended up with two job offers within my company last Tuesday - the day before we left to visit our daughter and her husband for Thanksgiving. I chose the one I wanted most - an Admin Asst. in the Food & Nutrition dept. of one of the biggest and best hospitals in the US. AND...I am even making 50 cents more per hour than I was before. I will not lose my vacation accrual. I'll be able to go back to college (Going to try to test out of the one class I missed when I was displaced) and am hopefully returning to college in January. The only bad part - our family has no health insurance until January 1st. This scares the hell outta me but we cannot afford the COBRA and my husband's insurance at work is almost as bad as COBRA. So we are just praying for good health and safety for the next 28 days.

If it had not been the holiday, I probably would have received my offer on my last day of employment with the company and would have therefore been a transfer, but because people were out of the office, etc. I got the offers 2 days later. But oh well, at least I don't lose any seniority, vacation time, etc.
