Today the Finance dept. had their annual picnic. It was rather exciting, because I had the opportunity to be on the planning committee. A good networking opportunity. Plus, I managed to get to be the photographer. GG let me borrow his fancy camera, so I at least looked professional (even if I'm quite greatful for photoshop, when it comes to the pictures). It was fun going around getting to talk with people I might not normally. I even managed to snap a few shots of people who couldn't relax for even an afternoon and were on their blackberries.
Before the picnic, I had an inteview over in the Marketing dept. I am not quite sure what to think about it. Over a month ago, I put in an application for a position. About a week later it was taken off the website. I assumed they found someone more experienced to fill the job. Then last week I got an e-mail saying they wanted to meet with me. So I happily went to meet with them. I dressed professionally, smiled, asked questions, did all the good inteview stuff. They told me they had it narrowed down to 2 internal candidates and 2 external, but the way they said that, it sounded like I was not one of them. Still, they took the time to meet with me. My guess is perhaps there will be something in the future? I hope so.
