Amen and more power to you sister! I'd rather read 200 posts like yours with exciting about upcoming career potential and opportunity than another mopey poster claiming America is closed and there are no more jobs not fair etc.

Good luck on the rest of your interviews, I think everyone here is quite excited the first part went well.

Next up a phone interview with a company analyst, then another with the district manager, then lastly another interview with the direct manager going through a list of corporate interview questions that include behavioral type questions. So we'll see but I'm happy to have had an interview finally regardless of what happens.

As far as TV dude.... if I want to post my excitement here in a online forum.. it's my choice. And I cant say that it was that exuberant .. it's just that there's so many negative posts around here that anything with a positive note comes off as too much to you. You should concentrate your energy on your own job as having your scheduled adjusted for your tardiness is hardly a positive career move.

I used to do the same thing and just was saying save some of the excitement for when you get a job offer. I had to learn that myself. But like I said good luck

wtg jasmine - give 'em all you got

and for TVSG - aren't YOU the one that was whining a few threads ago about never seeing anything "upbeat" in these forums?
Honestly - get a grip dude, you waver from one side to the other like a drunken sailor.

I can understand the OP's joy. On the other hand it sometimes better not to "put it all out there".

JMO, but sometimes something good loses it's energy when tell too many people. Not everyone wishes us well.

Do a post AFTER you landed the job.

Funny as I posted here instead of telling my friends and family for that exact reason. And also like others have said.... there is SOOO much negativity here on these forums about jobs and employment that I figured some would really benefit from a positive post... if you don't ... its really easy to skip my thread. Plenty of negativity to keep you busy around here

I have to admit I rarely say if I have prospects these days, since a few months back where I had interviews pulled at the last minute for one reason or another.

Hey! Relax guys..Tvdude just shared a little bit of his lessons, I think he wasn't really mean when he said that jasmine? You must have misinterpreted his intention, maybe b'coz of the tone of his message. or well..Anyways, congrats jasmine..best of luck!

LMAO coming at you so wild? You sure misinterpret my posts , if you think that was coming at you wild.. you live a very sheltered life. LOL It would just be nice to see one thread in here that stays positive and doesnt have danny downer ( that's debby's twin) always have to bring it down. I'm totally realistic and was just happy to finally get out there and interview with someone ... after 6 months of applying . Do I think I"m a shoe in for the job .. hell no. But I am happy to do something besides submit more apps. Practicing my interview skills is certainly a good thing... sheesh let people have a little happiness. I'm not so frail that interviewing and not getting a job is going to send me on a spiral of depression or anything.. Sheesh it's still more than I've had for months regardless of what happens.
