yesterday i had my on-campus interview with ohio state university library.
my uncle's advice was to "take no prisoners" i called him back this
afternoon and said "i killed 'em all!"
i was nervous but once i got in front of the first committee i met with
and started talking, i was fine. cool as the other side of the pillow.
i ended up having a great time! spent 5 hours there, meeting with a
couple different committees and several individuals, had lunch with a
group of folks at the faculty club, had a tour of the main library and
the library where i will be working most of the time (food, agriculture
and environmental sciences).
i looked damn good in the ralph lauren pantsuit, stuart weitzman pumps
and pearl earrings i wore (yup, i went "shopping" in momma's closet!).
i borrowed her full length llama fur coat too (it was sho' nuff cold
and windy today but this homegirl was waaarrrrrrmmmm. all i needed was
a matching llama fur hat to match haha). i looked good, felt good and
feel like i did very well.
i should tell y'all that out of the 42 people who applied, 9 (including
me, of course) had telephone interviews, and of those, 3 are having
on-campus interviews this week (that's only 7 percent of the applicant
pool!) . all that's left is for them to call -me- with an offer i
cannot refuse! i expect to hear from them by the end of next week.
thank you again for all your prayers and good thoughts! i felt them
fortifying me through a very busy day. i will definitely let you all
know what they tell me next week.
