PostSubject: Job Interview   Wed Oct 14, 2009 12:29 pm

I have a job interview next week for Head Start (a government funded preschool program for low-income families). I know it's just a job interview, but this is the one place I would really love to work at. It's a great program and encourages a lot of family involvement and support for the children and their families. I applied several weeks ago, and when I hadn't heard anything, I assumed the positions were filled. So, when I got a call to set up an interview today I was very excited. Anyway, just wanted to share my excitement!!

The interview went well yesterday. There are actually around 5 openings, so that makes me feel a little more hopeful. Now it's just wait-and-see.

I came home from that interview yesterday to a message on the answering machine about another interview this morning for a child care center close to home. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that something, one way or another, ends up turning into a job for me. I am more than ready!

Thanks. Yes, I'm hoping for the Head Start position partly because I think I will have a better chance to make more of a difference, and because it is a place I could grow and work my way up if I chose to do that.

Today's interview went really well too. I was definitely much less nervous because it was just myself and the director and a much more laid-back atmosphere. Yesterday I was before a panel of the director, a parent, and a human resources person and they all got to take turns asking questions and they all had to take notes. So they were both very different experiences.

The place I went to today is actually a very small center, which I really like. There are just three classrooms there and I would be with the 3 1/2 - 5 year olds. This is my favorite age to work with. It's just a few miles from home too.

Really, I would be happy either way. I've been done with school for several months now and I just want to put all of my experience to good use before I get all dried up and rusty!! Laughing
