Are The Gods Smiling On Me Or Just F**ing With Me?
I got a call and an email yesterday.
A company found my resume on monster, they like what they see and without even speaking with me asked me to come in for a face to face interview.
For a Supplier Quality Engineer position.
OUT OF THE AUTO INDUSTRY.
I talk with the guy, he gives me directions on how to get to their website to read the job description and apply so they can make the interview request formal.
Go to the website, look up the job number he gave me ...
And the job description is nothing that I have ever done, hell it doesn't even resemble anything a Quality Engineer would do.
I was dejected ...
I emailed him back asking if I had the right job number ...
No I didn't, he gave me the wrong one, gave me the right one and I look and the job description is everything that I have done.
So I interviewing for this job next Friday.
This company gives, fully paid, all it's employees every other Friday off. And the Fridays that they do work, they shut the place down at 4pm.
This company is a defense contractor that works on land systems (think humvees, and the such). I would be working with the ARMY and MARINES!!!
I think I may have died and gone to heaven.
Working Quality with SOLIDERS AND MARINES ... AND they will be paying me to do that.
Could this be the job that I have gone through hell the past year for?
I hope so !!!!!!

I am crossing everything and will be sending prayers and good thoughts up for you.
It's kinda spooky when this happens, isn't it?!?
And it's about damned time I click over here and see good news.....
Just don't forget your blogmama. ;-)
Of course, when you get this job, it means you have to dress the babies in camo so they can help celebrate.
Crossing all the parts that will cross, I think I've died and gone to heaven too!
SO excited for you!!! Crossing fingers, toes and hair [well, it's a mess right now anyway]!!!
That is like the perfect job for you. Alright, this is what I'm going to do. I'm going to spend the weekend sacrificing my liver to the gods in hopes that you get the job.
Hey, at least I'm trying! Seriously, good luck. I'll be hoping the best for you.
I'll send up some prayers. I like to think my prayers are extra-effective because the cracking and popping of these old knees just HAS to get His attention.
Yipeeeeee!! Sending good thoughts and prayers.
Best of luck QW. And thanks for stopping by too.
See! It's because you brought those lovely soldiers to Tammi's Comment/House Party!
Best of luck! Crossing fingers, toes and all that good stuff and sending wonderful thoughts and wishes your way!
You know... I think I know who you are interviewing with! I was going to ask you once about them (if it is who I was thinking of) if you'd ever thought about them. Whoo hooo! I cannot wait to hear!
Good Luck qDub... oh, one more thing, nice dog collars at the top... I like the colors.
