Wow. Time flies. It’s now April, and Jay and I are facing some big changes. Our son graduates from high school in just over two months, and we will be pulling up our remaining stakes in the town where he goes to school and making the city where L38 U is our full-time home. Jay hopes to find a job there, and, if he doesn’t, he will find a way that he can telework more and commute to his current job only one or two times per week.
Me, I’m continuing my job search. After things feel through with U48P, I dug in as hard as I could at my current job, but was quickly faced with the reality that it is just not a good fit for my career aspirations, and that I am a terrible fit for what L38 U needs (rather what they say they need, which is quite different).
So, I am on the shortlist for two jobs, both very similar to the position at U48P that I turned down. I have a Skype interview tomorrow for one, and was supposed to fly out for an in-person interview for the second on Tuesday. That won’t be possible, given that they invited me on Friday afternoon, and my schedule for this coming week is already quite full, but I am optimistic that they can find a time when I can visit.
Oh, and U48P did eventually fill their position. I am happy for them, and I really hope the president there learned something from my turning down his unimaginative and uninspired offer to come work with them.
