i nearly ran out the door without my folder.
it’s the one i like to keep my resumes in.
i had to get to staples asap because i had no resumes printed either.
it was going to be a very busy morning,
but i was so excited for this interview today.
this is why i tell everyone don’t burn bridges…
so it’s week “14 to 25” and i needed to do something.
while pondering what road i should take last week,
even looking at retail which i dread,
i had the bright idea to contact one of my networks.
she is a vixen who happened to work with oprah.
if she had anything in her radar,
even if she knew something,
i was happy to try out for it.
i haven’t heard from her in a while.
we met at the old job while assisting my old boss.
she would always come see me at my desk when she came over there.
i told her my love for oprah and she would bring me “o” magazines.
she actually gave me a “o” magazine before it hit shelves.
two weeks before.
it was a special edition that i still have.
she hit me up immediately and said she had a position i’d be good for.
i would meet with hr for the interview.
the problem is,
it was for a position that i was under-qualified for.
this role would require a degree and experience.
instead of cancelling it,
i decided to book the interview and at least show up.
it was no harm in trying,
i took one of the foxholers advice in going to interviews to stay sharp.
i arrived on time.
interview was at 10am.
i was at staples by 9am.
i was met by a snow bunny in her mid 20s.
her spirit was warm.
during the interview,
she told me more about the position and what it entailed.
in my head,
i was like:
i was not that fox for this.
this is when you know your lane.
now as you know,
i want something lighter than my past jobs.
this was the last jobs plus more.
it was very attention to detail and a lot “yes sir! no sir!”.
i could sense my misery.
so i was honest with her.
“I don’t think this is the type of position I’m looking for at the moment.”
appreciated my honesty and wanted a clear idea of what i wanted.
so i told her and she welcomed it.
she said that particular position requires a lot and it can be very hard.
i am so good on that.
jamari fox has been driven to crazy for the last time.
she said she would email me with positions within the company.
ones she knows i will be good for.
i told her my job deadline and she wanted to help me as much as she can.
i shook her hand and she showed me out.
i felt good about it,
but the hunt still continues.
i sent her and my connect a “thank you” as soon as i got in.
my connect wants to meet so we can brain storm.
