all dressed up in jeans
well, tomorrow i have my first professional interview since my return. i have sent off many cover letter/resume combos and yet this is my first call back for a position entitled community resource specialist. it is for a non-profit in gainesville so if i got an offer and accepted, there would be big changes soon. but i really want another position here in jax with the trust for public land. it is pretty much my dream job. i sent off the usual combo yesterday and thought i did a fantastic job but then i realized AFTER i had sent it that there was a typo (under instead of understand. gasp.). i have plotted how i could resubmit a revised cover letter but every ploy seems tacky so i just have to learn from my mistake and try not to beat myself up and lose sleep over it. please hope that they will overlook that little flaw and call me for an interview. and if the only job offer is from the one i am interviewing for tomorrow, could you also hope/pray/vibe that it pays 30k or more a year? something to make it worthwhile to relocate to? anyway, tomorrow i will go down there with the help of my mom and wear tights and earrings and other girly stuff and try to convince them that i am a capable adult. if nothing else, it is good practice and maybe we can take sebastian to the natural history museum. win-win. thanks and take care.
