One week ago today, I had my phone interview for an open departmental position, a promotion, a chance to learn more, do more, expand my horizons without leaving the safety net I’ve built around me. I had my doubts as to how that interview went. In fact, I had been psyching myself up for impending doom, gloom and rejection. Thinking that it wasn’t meant to be.
Looks like I was planning for the wrong outcome. Got the call about two hours ago. I got the job:). Looks like I’ve got a lot on my plate in the very near future. Definitely going to be a much busier venture than I’m used to, but that may be a blessing.
For now, I just want to reflect, absorb, and figure out who else I can say anything to before it’s officially announced tomorrow. I’ve never been perfect at keeping my mouth shut when I’m excited, but I know that I need to keep this under wraps at least as far as those who I work with, remotely. Knowing that I need to be very cautious as to how I put this sort of information out into the ether of bits and bytes.
I’m still so very very much in shock. I honestly thought I’d blown it. I suppose a little self doubt can be healthy.
