Well, I haven’t heard from that company in Burlington that I applied for via the recruiting firm in Toronto as yet. I received a call from the recruiting firm on Monday, around 3pm I think it was. She indicated that they would be contacting me for an interview – nothing as yet. I really hate the waiting part, that’s gotta be the hardest. I sent a follow-up email to the recruiter that interviewed me, just to ensure that I didn’t misunderstand or something – I hope to get a reply email later today.
I am waiting for other follow-ups next week. I have had phone interviews with a number of companies. I am guessing that with some of them, they don’t do a follow-up if there isn’t a match after the phone interview, not sure if I agree with that. Even a simple email would be nice, at least then you know. I do realize that some HR departments are slow, so, I continue to wait.
I am hopeful for the position in BC – it sounds like it would be interesting and it would be a fresh start.
J&D returned from Cuba yesterday afternoon. They had a great time and renewed their vows. Their 25th anniversary is coming up, April 25. I was in the original wedding party so it’s too bad that I really couldn’t go to Cuba with them. Despite my not liking a) sand, b) hot sun and temps c) foreign countries, I would have gone had I been working. Not sure who I would have had look after my dogs. It is tough to find someone to look after two of them. I could try a kennel, I am sure Zeus wouldn’t like that, Blondie likely wouldn’t care – she’s young and goofy.
I saw today that my Dad’s house is for sale. They are asking $13k more than we did 6 years ago. They have done some work for it so I don’t think they are really far off. If there is an open house, I plan to go through – it would be nice to see the place that I used to live in (for 25 years) and see what’s become of it.
So, that is an update for today. As any readers of this blog can likely tell, I am looking forward to going back to work. Hopefully it will be soon. Until next time.
