The possible interview didn’t pan out. They filled the 5 interview slots before the representative could get them my information.
I called within just a few hours of hearing from the staffing agency. It sounds to me like this one was not meant to be.
It’s that time of year. Business have realized that they missed the mark on some of their goals for 2009. So, some of the postings out right now need someone, like, NOW. It’s funny, I’ve been part of three other searches—and eventually got the jobs—that were in this mode at this time of the year.
For someone willing to accept contract work, this is good news. The job may start in just a few days. For someone looking for a more permanent position, this may not be a good fit. The first few days of work will be during the hectic holiday season, making it hard to establish a good initial fit with the company.
The recruiting representative said I was a good fit for the Technical Writing position and that they are conducting interviews tomorrow. He just needed an updated copy of my resume to give to his boss and said they should be calling back for the interview for tomorrow.
The pay isn’t great, but the job is close-by, so that’s a lot less important. Interviews are tomorrow and the job starts on Monday (short week for New Year’s) and then runs through February. Now that I’m not longer caring for someone at home, this might be a good role to get me through the winter months when things naturally slow down.
