Interview #1

It's been a while since I declared I Quit!

After a lot of networking and searching job postings, I've landed an interview as a program manager responsible for more than 200 employees. It gets me one step closer to my goal:

To live, work and volunteer, all within one community.

I'm a little scared as it looks like it may be another lateral move financially, which was not part of the goal, and it's for a city facing financial challenges. But the more I think about it, the more I realize that the circumstances are not terribly different than my current situation as far as the organization. So . . . I need to examine the people side and make a decision.

Pardon me if I sound cocky. I know I haven't even interviewed and I'm acting like I have a job offer in hand. I feel confident I could do this job and I feel confident I will interview well.

Wish me luck!!!

Good luck! I know you will knock em dead. Just don't forget that you are interviewing them too. Look for the red flags about the work culture and environment. That could be a deal breaker. Trust your instincts and you will be better off for it... no matter how weird it looks on paper. :)
