I had a job interview today. It was with a law firm looking for someone to take over their marketing initiatives to grow their presence.
The woman interviewing me loved me. She was the Business Development Director and she was so, so, so communicative and down-to-earth. When she asked me why I applied for this job, I told her it was because I love the television show Suits and that I wanted to see what the legal world was like from the inside.
She laughed and was like ‘Oh, girl you’re hilarious’. (Not a bad job faking it from a girl who has been dealing with severe depression for eight months)
We chatted for forty minutes, at the end of which she asked if I could add a few extra lines to my resume and send it back to her before she presented it to the Senior Partners.
She said that I have such a light-hearted personality that I am just the kind of person they need around the office and she’s going to recommend the Partners interview with me. (Again, not a bad job faking it from a girl who has been dealing with severe depression for eight months. Pat myself on the back for being such a good faker)
After all the legal woes I’ve been dealing with for the past eight months, wouldn’t it be a weird coincidence if the Universe landed me in marketing for a top Canadian law firm? What I absolutely need right now is to make good friends with some legal geniuses.
I didn’t accept the job offer that I got (that I spoke of last week). I decided it wasn’t right for me at this stage of my life. This job, I won’t lie, I’m interested in it. It’s not in the right city, but if it’s a good fight, I might consider it.
If you feel up for it, send some positivity to the universe for me that I find my way to the right place.
