On the train back from Wellesley the other day, I met Santa, and I smiled when he asked me what I wanted for Christmas. I said (of course!) a job.
Today I got an email from the recruiter to set up a follow up interview for the post I interviewed for on Wednesday. She said:
The feedback was wonderful- they think you’re very well rounded “somewhat of a renaissance woman”. You will be meeting with two or three people. I’ll get you more detail when I get it!!
That made my day. But wait! It gets better.
The next email that came through was from my mentor and former boss. The email subject:
I just said very nice things about you!!
They're calling my references! So I called up one of my other references, my very first boss, the one who sent me to grad school, and he said he'd just gotten off the phone with the recruited and his impression was that they were "really thrilled with you."
I meet with the hiring manager and a few other people again on January 2nd. Cross your fingers for me!
