End of January Updates

by on Jan.27, 2007, under z-Old Posts

Well, unfortunately, there aren’t a lot of updates to make.  I had my interview with WestJet on January 10, which I thought went alright.  Nothing spectacular, but it was alright.  I really enjoyed meeting the people who interviewed me and I certainly would enjoy working for WestJet.  But I realized, as I flew three times within 24 hours, that the pressure of commuting by air might not be all it’s cracked up to be.

Three flights you ask?  Surely a trip from Winnipeg to Calgary can be done in two flights.  And yes that’s true.  However, I made a rather impromptu decision to fly home for a while.  So impromptu that after getting home from Calgary, I was only in Winnipeg for 10 hours before flighting off to Hamilton.

I had a great time at home, even got to enjoy a day or two of their very mild weather before the cold and snow I’d abandoned in Winnipeg followed me into Ontario.  Unfortunately, due to my quick decision to come home and the bad weather on the weekend I was there, I wasn’t able to contact my friends and family outside of the Niagara Region for a visit.  Sorry Stef and Jay!!  Next time!

Following my trip home, I had an interview with the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority.  That one was very strange, with questions that really threw me off balance and thus made for an interview that probably had a lot of room for improvement.  But given the vibes I got, I’m not so sure I would want to work there anyway.  They haven’t called yet – nor have WestJet, as I realized I neglected to mention above.

So here’s where I’m at.  I’ve had two job interviews, neither of which were anything spectacular, but the WestJet one certainly wasn’t bad either.  Without hearing from either employer, I started to get a little down again – until I got a surprise call yesterday morning from the University of Manitoba.

It was a position I applied for almost two months ago, one I thought I’d be very good at.  A few days after I applied, however, the job was reposted and I figured that meant they didn’t like the applicants they had received the first time, and decided to repost.  Well I guess I was wrong and now I have an interview on Tuesday morning.  I am VERY excited about this – it has all the criteria I was looking for in a job.  Web related, good reputable employer, and in Winnipeg.

So here’s hoping the third time’s a charm and this is the one that will work out.
