the interview was… doubleplusgood!

This afternoon at 3pm I had my interview for a project manager position with a company deeply involved in renewable energy products. As I’ve mentioned, I originally applied for a different position with them a couple of months back, but never got called for it. This time they e-mailed me asking whether I’d like an interview, and of course I said yes. As that was the full extent of the information I had about the position, I couldn’t really prepare for the interview in any meaningful way. Turns out that was OK… it went as well as I’d ever hoped an interview could go.

Be prepared to be underwhelmed, but I just had to put this dream down in writing so I wouldn’t forget about it.

a smattering of me

what’s this? local opportunities??

I’m getting settled at the new location at work. I’m all set up, I’m getting stuff done, but not having direct access to the network is still a ROYAL pain in the butt. And there’s no sign of my USB drive, nor any idea of where I’ll actually use it to access the network when I need to once a week. Argh.

The last half of this week has atoned for my lack of direct server access somewhat in the form of one phone call and one e-mail, both about local job opportunities! Although the thought of leaving this current position – especially as it might yet go permanent – scares the living heebie jeebies out of Jannette, I’m quite stoked. They are LOCAL, and both exciting in their own right.

there’s shortsighted, and then there’s friggin’ blind

So, with the two new managers starting next week, space had to be made to put them somewhere. Thus, a bunch of office shuffling has been happening this week. The biggest part of this shuffle has been my relocating to another building. This was absoultely fine by me – I’d be in a much quieter building with fewer people, and those few that are around are more pertinent to my new position.

Yesterday I moved my big furniture (table, fake plant, filing cabinet) and this morning I cleared out the rest. By mid-morning I was all set up.

By mid-afternoon there was a very good likelyhood that I will be moving BACK. I am NOT FUCKING IMPRESSED.
