The First Day of the Rest of My Life

Thursday, January 06, 2005

So I had the big second interview happened today. I call back Friday to see about the decision.

To be specific, the job I'm going for is representative for a financial company. That's right, I'd be selling people on mutual funds and insurance. Thing is, I was kind of gung ho about it up until after I left the office building after the interview. The dollar signs they've dangled in front of me are mighty nice (including up to a 62.5% bonus on earnings), but I've since had doubts about whether I actually have what it takes to succeed in a sales position such as this. Add to those doubts a statement from my cousin's husband, who's in the business, that I might not make much money the first few weeks/months, and my feet are really starting to get cold. A follow-up pep talk from Suse also gave me some other stuff to think about as well. Let's just say these next 34 hours or so will be mighty interesting.

After the interview, I hung out with two women, the first being G. We went for lunch at the Cheesecake Factory. I had the Blackened Cajun Chicken, she had the Portobello Burger (which was surprisingly good, doubt it'll make me give up meat). We walked around for a little bit after that; all in all, a nice afternoon hanging out with a friend.

Later on, I hung out with Suzanne. What happened, I'll tell you later...
