My last real world interview!

Last Update: March 24, 2014

In 13 hours, I will be introducing myself to my last offline interviewers! I have prepared my last resume & portfolio!

This holds much signification for me, I am choosing a job that will allow me to have the time and head-space for my own projects.

Don't get me wrong, I'll do my job just fine, but no extra effort. No more overtime, no more above and beyond, simply punch in-punch out.

Doesn't sound too exciting, but I will actually be loving what I do! Simply, this time around, I am keeping all my extra energy and creativity for my businesses.

They are offering 4 days a week, I'm already planning a schedule for those 3 day weekends on WA and my websites!

Seems here like I already got the job, but I think I do, hihihi. My friend was employed there last week and she has put in a good word for me. + They are desperate to fill this position and I fit the bill perfectly! It should be a casual meeting, I have already met them briefly, their business is in the same building my last office was in.

Having been immersed in job/interview mode today, I was wondering what are your plans for offline jobs? Are you already working part-time? What are your goals when it comes to your working situation?

Wish me luck guys! :)


UPDATE: Thanks for all your wishes! The interview was great, the job even better and I did get the job! :) BUT my information about the work load/hours was totally off. Turns out they need 5-6 days a week, do it all, know it all, in charge of everything, right arm, etc...basically running the whole place! I can ''do'' the job, but I don't ''want'' to.

The question was simple: Am I going to regret not taking this job or am I going to regret not focusing and trying to create my own business. The latter won and I am very happy!

You kind of hit a sore point... I gotta think about next year, but don't really want to...

It's hard because I'm hoping that by August, I will have an income through my website, but it's kind of hard to rely on that... Ahhh... I'm thinking of looking to get a job a few days a week (kind of like you) and be super flexible otherwise.

I'm kind of a travel junkie and love heading out of town for the weekends and whatnot...

I think you can generate income by August, but to live on is a different story. It would be great for you to have a part time job! If you get a good hourly wage and tighten the budget for a while it's doable. + Worth it so you can squeeze in some online work and travelling! Good luck, keep me posted!

Thanks! I'll have better balance now between the 2, with obviously the goal to kick the offline one to the curb. ;)
