Have An Interview This Friday

March 4th, 2021 at 02:20 am

Remember last summer when I interviewed for a position at the local water district, with the office right in my tiny town?  I'm not sure if I ever mentioned it, but they did eventually send me a letter just saying that someone else had been a better fit but that they encouraged me to apply again in the future.  Well, last week they had another opening and I did just that.  I have a Zoom interview this Friday.  So, we will see.   

Last time, I wasn't positive that I wanted it.  This time, I am sure.  I hope that will come across in the interview.  It would be a pay cut, but with my debt nearly gone, it's not so much of an issue.  I would continue to earn service credits towards my pension, I would have health insurance, and I would be a 10 minute drive from home.  That is sounding really good to me.  Wish me luck. Smile

    A few times I was in a position to interview job candidates, and the one thing that struck me is how few people really acted very interested in the job. My one piece of advice to you, something I've done myself in recent years which I think really helped, is that, toward the end of the interview when you sense it's wrapping up, to make a point of saying, in a positive way, how much and/or why you would enjoy the job and why you WANT it. I think people respond to enthusiasm, and your actively asking for the job and briefly summarizing why you think you'd be a great fit will help you stand out from the crowd. Most people just go in and passively answer questions.

    Good luck!

    Ask questions about what kinds of projects, etc. they have going on? Emphasize how you can contribute to that with your skills and experience.
