This and this? After a couple of weeks I thought I wasn't going to hear from them again, but today I got an e-mail, called back & have an interview next Wednesday. I thought they'd just be looking for help for Christmas, but apparently it'd be a full time position. And I can't imagine they expect me to start before Christmas, since they must be aware that once it's November I can't legally quit before the end of December anyway, so that'd solve that dilemma...

Completely panicky with What-Ifs the whole day, since I opened the e-mail just before I left to see my sister & niece, and only called back when I came home, because I needed time to think; a bit calmer now, although also melancholy, because after all this time I'd miss M. despite all her quirks, and of course this is completely stupid, because I haven't even passed the interview, much less got the job... Sometimes I hate my brain. ::sigh::

I understand about being nervous, but, from where I stand, this sounds like GOOD news. No matter if they finally want you or not, at least they are interested... Congratulations!

Thanks. :) I'm always panicky about change, at least at first, but, yes, I think this might be good news. Daumen halten bitte! *g*

I agonize over things like this, too. You might remember that I applied for a job in the special collections department here, which I didn't get. (Unfortunate, because it's a daytime job.) I believe they've hired the woman who has been working as the library director's "administrative assistant" (glorified secretary, really) for the job, instead.

One of the night supervisors here in the circulation department used to work as an administrative assistant, and I know she's interested in that position if, indeed, it does open. Which would probably leave me stuck with one of the night jobs, working from 4pm-2am. *headdesk* I really, really, don't want that job, but I wouldn't have much choice but to take it because I do need something full time. I've filled in for both of the night supervisors before for extended periods, and it makes you feel like a zombie all week. You never really do get used to it, because you work a couple of nights, then you're off for a day or two, then you work a daytime shift, then you're back to nights. Really, it's hell.

4pm-2am? Ouch. That does sound like hell. On the job I had before this one I was working late too, but I rarely left long after midnight, so that was still doable, and it wasn't full time, either... Best of luck.
