Well friends, I just heard back and did not get the job and that's a great thing. I don't need any consoling - pinky swear. The first interview was AMAZING! The second interview...not so much. I learned more about the job and pieces surrounding it that no longer felt like a fit at all. That part was a bummer - a BIG bummer - but it is what it is and it was a magnificent ride up until that point.
I left there on Tuesday knowing this position was not for me despite previously thinking it was a perfect fit and I could sense that they felt the same. It just was no longer a match. I called Melanie and texted a few other beloveds right after the interview saying I really don't want this now and I hope I'm not put in a position to need to say no to them if it was offered to me, which is why I love how this worked out.
I'm grateful they got back to me so quickly and that I didn't need to choose, and I promise I am not disappointed. Had it still felt like the perfect fit in the second interview though, I definitely would have been sad to have not gotten the job. Thankfully, we were on the same page and now something else awaits. No idea what or when because I have zero ideas right now and my heart is focused solely on my little girl's upcoming departure, but once I'm back from Montreal a new chapter will begin.
The highlight for me was that I bonded quite well with one of the interviewers who was as smitten with me as I was with her. I made her laugh in both interviews, she loved my Too Good Triangles and she also loved me, and she REALLY loved my new dress. I felt like a million bucks in it that day! It was a genuine pleasure to speak to her on the phone tonight and she told me I offered the best interviews of them all. I believe her. There was no blow she needed to soften with artificial kindness and I really am freaking awesome in interviews when I'm dealing with awesome people.
No hard feelings. Just a great experience on the way to something better. And if I thought THAT was great, imagine what comes next!
Thanks for all the support along the way, sweet friends.
