Need some good JuJu-vibes

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Without going into too much detail (as I believe I'll jinx my chances), I need some good juju sent my way... here's the 'fuzzy' details:

Ever since moving to Oregon nearly a year ago, I have been hunting for a good full time gig in the field I want to be in. It's a hard field to get into, especially in my particular county (some of you know what this work is). I got a PT job in this field in another county, a hefty drive three days a week. (I'm currently doing the retail job, with hours cut back, and this other job, in the field i want.) Soon after starting at my current job in this area, I applied for another one in the same county I currently work in. Didn't get it. C'est la Vie, right? Now, my resident county is like the :censor::censor::censor::censor::censor::censor::censor:' Fort Knox of jobs in this field. So, I've been checking at least once a week for a year... to no avail.

Until this last week.

I checked early in the week, nothing... okay, that's normal. So, on Friday morning, I check again, just for the heck of it... guess what? THERE'S POSTINGS!!!!! Holy Frijoles, WTHeck?!?!?! Not only one position available but three, plus some on-call options. One of the options is a full 40 hours a week. Starting at a decent pay range (i.e. more than i currently make). So, I apply. Got my email confirmation that they received the app.

Here's where it gets weird: Saturday morning, I check it to just look at the listing... it's not there. (cue: Twilight Zone theme). The only thing i can think of is that they got SOOOOO many applications in a matter of days that they pulled the listing when they felt they had enough.

Fate, I tell ya. I have to get an interview with my resident county. I really, really, REALLY want the 40 hour/week job. See, with what I currently make, I'm still not able to fully stand on my own two feet financially. I NEED this job to do just that.

So, I'm asking for major juju vibes... light some candles, pray to whomever you pray to, etc...

Thanks, everyone. I'm on edge right now because every time my phone rings, I pick it up... I just cancelled my newspaper subscription, because i have no time to read it... and they called again, to find out why... so I explained it again... so, maybe they'll stop calling... now I'm waiting for the county to call...

but of course, my mind goes into overdrive... what if i just get a rejection letter?? it's not like I'm not qualified... heck I'm currently working in this field, and worked for over a year in it before... and they only require 6 months of previous exp. doing this job... got that!!! so they'd be insane for not calling me in for an interview...

Have a cat on my lap... well, have Jack on my lap... and he's stretched his neck out over my wrist, so I can't move my right arm very well... better stop typing... he's such a weirdo... he opened my closet doors this morning, chirping all the while...

Gotta go get something accomplished before heading to work...
