Every Bloody Time

Every Bloody Time



The interview is very soon. I have just been hit with the signs of migraine onset. Every bloody major interview in the last three years ...

update: Yay, meds! and no, I have absolutely no idea of how that went. It was either a complete wash or brilliant, but I don't know which. Didn't get any verbal or auditory cues. And don't know if they will think I'm a good fit for a school with a religious affiliation. I don't know that I would be at most schools, but this one I think would be a good fit. Their ideas of citizenship and participation in society are very much like my own, at least. I really liked the department chair. They did ask why they'd want to hire me -- I said that I was very good at what I do, and I was a good colleague. And that I tended to worry about being good enough to make sure I stayed that way.

Oh well -- we'll know by the end of the week if I got the brass ring of the campus interview or crashed and burned. I'm hoping for the brass ring. From what I could tell, I'd like a second date.

Thanks! We'll see. It's like blind dating, but worse.

There's not much more that I can add other than I wish you luck and it seems everyone's already done that. I will do anyway though.
