So I ended up not getting the job that I blogged about a few weeks ago. I think it's probably for the best, though, because when they got in touch to tell me that they were hiring someone else, I was hardly even disappointed. I can't remember ever feeling that way about losing out on a job before. Usually, even if I didn't really want the job, I'd be disappointed that they didn't want me. This means one of two things: either it wasn't the right fit, or I'm just not that interested in changing jobs right now. I guess the truth is somewhere in between.
Several months ago, I had started having some conversations with my boss about my work situation, and how it wasn't really right for me, and as a result of those conversations, I've just gotten a much better (for me) assignment. I won't have to be on the road as much, and I get to work in an office again, at least a few days a week. And remember how I was complaining about not going to enough meetings? I don't think that's going to be a problem any more.
So all in all, it's worked out for the best.
Here's wishing all my U.S. readers a happy Memorial Day weekend–hope the weather is beautiful where you are.
