    Job Interiew

    I was going to put this in the Off Topic Forum, but when you consider that my interview is at Ritz Camera, it is still an on-topic discussion.

    Anyway, yeah, I snagged an interview for a full time lab tech position at Ritz Camera. I am in real need of this job, so everybody send me the good vibes. I really think I would be a great fit for this job. I don't know anyone with more technical knowledge than I do, and, as I am told, I have a really good personal touch. The interview is for tomorrow at 12:30pm, so you guys be thinking about me then!

    I got my hair cut yesterday, so I wouldn't look like a bum...

    Thanks for all the posts guys!

    The interview went well, I feel. There was a really positive vibe throught out the whole time. They told me to expect a call back within a week if they want to see me about hiring and starting the job. So, everybody keep their fingers crossed and I will keep my chin up.

    I am currently in the "waiting for a call back" phase. I am feeling pretty good about it, but after so many let downs, I am not getting my hopes up too high.

    Dang, I forgot about this thread. I'm sorry. Yeah, I found out like two weeks ago that I was #2 on their list of three candidates for the job. Number one took the job when they offered it, and I got my application filed.

    So much for that.
