My interview went ok Friday but I won’t get the job. I do not have 3D drafting experience. The earliest I can take a class for this is August. I was afraid I was going to not feel well during the interview but I felt great, maybe adrenaline kicked in or something. Anyway after playing at church this morning I came home and hit the couch. After a 5 minute power nap I woke up and the crud hit me hard. I feel like %^&*#! Chased Advil with multiple Mtn Dews. Had to run to the funeral home for a church friend. Came home and plopped on the couch again, where I intend to stay. Now I am in need of iced tea. This was made. It is cold. Decaf is probably a good thing at this point. Hope tomorrow brings dry warmer weather and the end of crud.

Sorry you won’t get the job but at least you put yourself out there.

K S

It was pretty clear in their job description but I figured maybe I will be the best not qualified candidate they interview. :) Hey, can’t happen if you don’t try.

Nicole

Sorry to hear about the job. Hope you feel better quickly. Good luck in your continuing search. I didn’t know you were a drafter. What discipline? Civil, mechanical?

MegWesley

Well, the good thing was that you felt better during the interview. Hope you feel better soon. And you are right, nothing can happen if you don’t try.

K S

Nicole, 2D architectural sort of. I made drawings for a stone fabricator. I’ve worked on several buildings on Pennsylvania Ave in DC, and once on the Pentagon.

MegWesley, Exactly! One of the realities of life that escapes too many people.

Nicole

Ah, I started in civil and have ended up in structural. Bridges. Mostly in MO & KS but one in WY and the new mess in Arlington with all of their HOV lanes they have been putting in. :) Architectural drafting always appealed to me.

Rie

May tomorrow bring you better weather althroughout, K S! (^v^)/

CHAroma

Aww, shucks. I did the same thing when I was job hunting. If there’s even a small chance, I say go for it! Sometimes they’re willing to teach you on-the-job. Good luck on your future interviews! I hope you get a great job & feel better soon!
