I thought I would take a break from depressing law school related posts to pop in and discuss my job search.
Some of you might recall that shortly after I graduated I had a phone interview for a position I really liked with a company I thought was a really good fit for me. Sadly, they were looking for someone with experience I technically did not have. I thought I had some skills that would translate well, but they did not seem to want to take the leap. Which, I suppose, in an economic environment where the employer pretty much has the pick of the litter, is not irrational.
At the time, I decided not to burn the bridge. I really like this company and the people I spoke to, and I thought it would be a good fit. So I told them to keep me in mind for the future. Lo and behold, a new position has opened up and the woman I spoke with at the time called me today and asked if I wanted to come in to discuss this position. No guarantees, obviously, but I am cautiously optimistic that this might be something good. She has spoken with me before, so she pretty much knows what she is getting.
I will keep you all updated as I hear things, but keep your fingers crossed for me! I would say that this is the most promising lead yet! I still have another interview pending, but I think this is one has more promise.
