interview tonight


painting by Pim Sekeris


I have another job interview tonight at seven, this time for the upscale unisex store. I suppose it's very much like The Gap - I used to shop there when I'd go down to Calgary to see Bill because it was a sister store to the one I managed.

Anyway, because it's owned by the same company, it could go either way. I gave a scathing exit interview in 2006, but that was about a dispute I'd had with the district sales manager, who'd treated me unfairly. I'd also mailed a Thank You card to the Regional Vice President, saying I enjoyed working for the company and hoped to see him again one day, and this division used to be his baby.

I'm hoping for the best.

I was in my office yesterday, and met with an Advisor named Tim. Tim was the one I'd pass all my mutual fund people to, and he's been trying to think of a way for me to maintain my life licence while I give retail another shot. He might make me his Associate Advisor and pay me out of pocket for any sales I make. This would work great for me because his pay scale is three levels above mine. The clients would be his, but it would suit my purpose.

Anyway, I'm off to the office again today. Cross your fingers that I get an offer tonight!

  7. I'm shrouding you in white light and crossing my fingers and toes - even thinking about sacrificing the neighbour's cat on the altar of job-hunting - good luck!

  8. Late as ever reading your post - being on the other side of the earth has its downsides (haha downunder). Well how did it go? Any chance an offer might follow?
