Well…a few decisions to make now I guess. I just got a call from the owner of NorATek and he’s like, “I was wondering if it would be possible for you to come in tomorrow for a few follow-up questions.” To me, this means that he’s got a few questions, but mainly wants to offer me the job and go over the details. Now, I didn’t really say much about the interview I had at NorATek last Friday. Let me tell you, it was the longest interview I’ve ever been in. It was 3 hours long….I got there at 2pm and left at 5:05! How crazy is that. A friend of mine just had an interview to be a fireman and his interview only lasted an hour and 45 minutes. So, ya, the 3 hour interview was a marathon, but it wasn’t really that hard. I’m used to talking to computer geeks because I am one. Anyways, I’m going in tomorrow morning for a short meeting to discuss everything. I’m pretty sure he’s going to offer me about $15/hr which is a lot lower than I think I’m worth (after 6 years of university and a whole lot of experience). So there’s going to have to be some negotiating happening I think. The big decision I have to make is what are the terms and wages I am willing to accept and what are the terms and wages I will reject. I don’t want to settle for less right now when something better could come along. But, I guess that’s the trick hey? Try and figure out what’s going to be the best in the long run and notice a good opportunity when one comes along.
The job that I’ve applied for at the northern health authority is for a support person just like at NorATek and their starting wage is $23/hr. That’s quite the jump in wages.
Anyways, I’m off to get supper going and clean up a bit. I hope everyone is doing well stress-wise it being exam time and the Christmas season.
