Interview for promotion

Today, I had my first job interview since July. I applied for a promotion a few weeks ago and my interview was this morning. There was a panel of the human resources manager, assistant division director and a supervisor.

Unfortunately, near the end of the interview, I got the feeling that I will not be getting the job. The feeling came by the way the human resources manager was explaining the position further. After the interview, I had a test and then a computer test. I think I did pretty well on the paper test but the computer test was scored right after. I don’t think I did too well on that.

It sounds like the interview and the two tests will all be scored together for one final score. That will determine where I will place on the list if I am not hired this time around.

I am getting a bad feeling that I will not be hired this time around. I am not getting my hopes. I asked when I will be notified about the job and they will let us know in about a week. I am not holding my breath.

While my self esteem is a little down today, I am trying to be positive about what I currently have in my life. I have my health, my family and my current job. I am trying to be thankful for what I have now.

In the meantime, I am still looking for other job openings and applying for anything and everything I can. From what I understand, other people in my unit are also applying for jobs elsewhere. We are drained and we feel tied to the phones. I think we are all exhausted.

If I had it my way, I would go back to being a stay at home mom. I missing being a full time wife and mom.
