Last week I saw and responded to an employment add on Craigslist for a marketing & office admin position. Today was the much anticipated interview.
I came home after the interview light as a feather & excited. My plan was to go out tonight to get a note card to let them know how much I appreciated the fabulous interview. Even if I didn't get the job, the interview had left me jazzed & confident. It has been a very long time since I felt the time slowing, crispness of being in the perfect moment. This interview had a very special feeling to it, an easiness, a flow.
The feeling eased me into a peaceful state that declares I am on the right path. That I am taking the right steps & risks (and getting back up after being knocked down). I can with great clarity envision working with these people and I see myself being very proud of this company. I really like being part of something. I like being able to feel that what I am doing each day is helping my team.
Of course I missed the phone call from them this afternoon.
I had to do a big ole exhale before calling them back. My mind was trying to figure out what had gone wrong. It was too soon for them to call. They still have interviews this afternoon and Thursday. Maybe, just maybe I was going to be asked to come back for a second interview. Instead, I was told that they wanted to offer me the job.
I had to sit down, and boy was I glad I had been hovering near my desk chair.
Then Maria, the Operations Manager told me such sweet things, that I was an excellent & perfect match, that she and the owner had felt an instant connection with me, that I interviewed so confident that I could do the job and that they felt certain that my enthusiasm would help me as I have no industry experience. Between watching Glee reruns of their production of West Side Story and my deep love for the Sound of Music, I have quite the love story for Maria happening in my head! Oh and they want me to start this week.
Starting Thursday, I will be working at a floral design event company here in the Springs who has a very impressive client list of the premier locations to host a wedding, corporate or social event! I am so excited to get to learn about & be part of a creative industry! I am excited to have found a great match for my personality and love of marketing & social media!
Plus, they said one of the perks of working for a florist is that I get to bring home some of the left over flowers after an event. I could get used to having fresh flowers in my house!
Sending a big ole' loud smacking thank you kiss out to the Universe and to each of you who lifted me up this past week!
