It's All in the Timing!

Well, the interview with the staffing agency went well. REALLY well. Holy Crap!!

I start TOMORROW at a Huge Financial Services Company which I have never heard of. The agent girls were practically cartwheeling through the halls. Apparently I walked in the door at precisely the moment they needed a Customer Relations Specialist. DAMN! Of course they are talking up the HFSC, making it sound like Utopia, but I shall jusge for myself. TOMORROW. As in TOMORROW. Wow!

I don't know exactly how much I'll be paid for this, but I know the minimum, and it's enough to live on. OH PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let them give me that extra bump!

Gets better: I don't hate Customer Relations. In fact, I really grooved on it. And after working closely with the World's Largest Retailer for four years, there's no customer I can't handle.

Uh, I mean, I feel well-prepared. (God - I may SO eat those words someday...)

Gets even better: I'm being brought in because somebody is resigning. This could - COULD - morph into like.. you know... a real, settled job.

So... congratulate me... then wish me luck all over again... I still have a ways to go!

For now: lunch.

btw - I read your comment and thus changed the advil box to animate when you hit "show words".

Darlin', that's amazing. I am probably *knocks wood FRANTICALLY* on the way out the door at Columbia, and I was going to ask if you were interested in giving it a go (since you applied for it, oh-so-long ago). Timing was never my strong suit.
