I thought I would make this up as a reward – I just got my first interview scheduled! Woo! (It’d been about 2 weeks since I started applying, and I was starting to wonder if I wasn’t going to be shortlisted anywhere – maybe I had a typo or something? IDK. So, phew!) It’s a company that does 3D printing so I’m really excited about that, but when the recruiter asked me about my salary expectation I gave her a number that was too low.
I hate being on the spot like that.
So now, if the interview goes well, I’ll have to try and negotiate. (stupidstupidstupid)
At least I’ll know what value to give the next interviewer if this doesn’t work out?
Anyway… this tea is supposed to make me feel better and focus on the good parts! This might all work out! And I might just magically arrange daycare in time for me to start a job etc.
It’s not working. Time to go unpack more boxes and fidget anxiously.
And listen to NIGHT VALE. (best podcast ever you guys, why aren’t you listening to it? http://www.wired.com/underwire/2013/08/night-vale-podcast-itunes/)
