I Was Hoping For An FO

I was hoping to report on a FO today, but I'm left sitting on pin and needles. FO meaning Found Out if I got the job.

There would be a picture of pins and needles but I can't locate the camera.  Instead, you get a picture of Dammit.

My friend took me to the interview this morning and I arrived 20 minutes early.  There were two people ahead of me.  What a great friend, she sat and waited in her car and drove me back home when I was finished.

The interview seemed to go well, however, I'm not a good judge on that.  I'm not really great at interviews.  The chef is from Buffalo, a neighbor to my home town of Rochester.  Hopefully, that's in my favor. His three biggest concerns were filling call-ins and vacation time, accuracy of trays, and avoiding conflict with cranky residents, nurses and co-workers.  I hope I answered all his questions correctly and stood out from the crowd.

I also hope my previous experience working as nurse in long-term care is a help.  He asked why I didn't just go for their care-giving staff.  I said it was a long and expensive process to transfer my licence and that I need a job now.  That if he didn't mind, I would like in the long-term future to transfer when I could and this would be a foot in the door to do so.  I'm hoping it's a help as I have a clear understanding of why it's very important that the trays are set up accurately.  Like no sugar on a diabetics tray, or no salt for a heart patient, allergies and such.

He said he hopes to make a decision today.  My friend said, it probably won't happen til Monday.  I didn't have his direct e-mail, so I sent one to the "contact us" on the website, directing it to the Head of Dietary, thanking him for his time and why I think I would be a good candidate for the job.  Hopefully, he gets it before he makes his decision.

So, in the meantime, my reader's, you are a powerful bunch on the mojo.  Many of you will remember back in February when the Dr. said there was little hope for Duane, we all put so much positive energy out that he turned the corner.  I really need this job, and I think I will like working there.  Please send lots of positive mojo that I'm the one he chooses.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great weekend.  I'll post just as soon as I know something.
