on all the days,
i had to schedule a big job interview during a muthafucka of a snow storm.
one to bring more inches than i like…
so remember i blogged i had a job interview via skype last year before i went to florida?
well it finally came though.
since the interview was at 9am and down in by riverfront,
i woke up at 5:45.
i know the mta and bad weather all to well.
i put out a grey blazer,
white dress shirt,
dark grey dress pants,
and my loafers.
…but with socks.
i also packed my boots in my bag because i heard “potential shit storm around 11am”.
i ate a jimmy dean breakfast sausage egg and cheese sandwich
(one of which i threw up due to nerves),
and dressed by 730.
when i walked outside,
it was brick as hell.
i mean like,
“wtf and why is this happening????????” type of cold.
when i got to my spot,
the snow was already starting to coming down hard.
i guess i was black while trying to hail a cab.
google maps took me in a complete circle,
but i made to the office at 8:58.
i checked in and waited.
the office was really spacious.
the aura was “calm” with all kinds of plants everywhere.
when the person i was meeting with came out,
i noticed his body language looked very agitated.
i tried to break the ice as i try to do and it was…
“so introduce yourself…” he said, looking at the wall.
i tried to answer all his questions the best i could,
but he was acting real… off.
at times when i finished,
i found myself having to fill in the awkward silences.
“do i really want this man as my boss?” i said to myself.
there was one point when i was talking,
he completely blanked out and started looking around the room.
like, random “i heard a voice to my left” type of crazy.
afterwards i shook his hand and thanked him for meeting with me.
i went to the bathroom,
changed into my boots,
transformed into “winter fox”,
and was back to the crib.
i did my best today.
he got someone who wanted the job.
anything else is on him.
hell i been to interviews where the person was excited and i didn’t get even a call.
the research i did on the company seems like it’s a great place to work.
i am thinking “paycheck” and not “happiness” tho.
i mean a job is a job,
don’t me wrong,
but these companies are starting to reaffirm what i want to do with my life.
i keep saying to myself that i want more every time i’m in the waiting area.
maybe i do need to look into making my blogging/writing a career?
i did document some stuff on my journey.
i came in the crib,
stripped down to my drawz,
and went to sleep.
before i turned my phone off,
i got an email from a vixen about a job at a huge entertainment company.
they were looking for an administrative assistant ASAP so she forwarded my resume.
“live, work, create” is from one of my favorite hipster-ish stores,
( x brooklyn industries ).
ironically i got my winter coat from them and it is one of the warmest coats i own.
