I have a job interview tomorrow morning. This job would be a great opportunity for me with the potential for advancement to a top position in the company. It also will cut my commute by about 15 minutes initially and then when the new location opens up cut it down to about 10 minutes total.

I always feel funny asking but please say a prayer, wish me good thoughts and wish me luck. I know that SI mojo is the one of the most powerful forces in the universe. I'm really hoping for a home run here.

Thank you all so much!

I am fiercely independent and I won’t apologize for it. I'd rather be single than settled.

I'm sorry if you don't like my Honesty, but to be fair I don't like your lies.

Sometimes it's better to push someone away...not because you stopped loving them but because you can't take the pain anymore.

Sending positive thoughts your way! If you're any where near the metro area traffic is awful. Any time saved on the commute is priceless. Back in grad school, a typically 45 minute one-way commute (non-peak traffic) could easily turn into a two hour debacle on Fridays.

Good luck!!

Thank you everyone. I'm nervous. But I feel ready too. I'm ready for this.

You've GOT this - just remember all the people standing behind you. Kind of like the Verizon commercial only better! Good luck!

Sending mojo and why don't you take a handful of Christmas glitter with you too. It can't hurt unless you dump in all over yourself before hand.

Thank you everyone for the support and prayers.

Technically, professionally, knowledgewise, the interview went very well. I had some really good discussions with the key people and received positive feedback all day long. The morning went by really quick and we ended with lunch followed by a wrap up with HR. From that aspect I think I did really well and clearly am a fit for the job.

Here's the down side - This morning I got hit with a heavy allergy attack. I cannot seem to shake it. So I had to deal with congestion and a runny nose throughout the entire interview. This is a position that will meet with key customers worldwide. You only get one opportunity to blow a first impression and I am concerned that is what happened.

They are bringing other candidates in too and it won't be until the middle of January before we take the next step which would be a teleconference with some people in Germany. Hopefully I will find out some additional information from the recruiter later this week.

I wouldn't stress on this too much. They are human by the way.
