Yes, I believe I dazzled them on the interview. Arriving in the less than professional interview attire because this is not an office job, it’s a human service position for the creative minded individual who is confident and thinks out of the box. I surprised them initially sporting my personality and then pull them into a world of hope that has no barriers that only I can offer their clients. I ran the interview painting a world that’s engaging. The only thing standing in the way is money.
“It’s hard to get that kind of money in this field, but not impossible.” I was told.
“I have a lot to offer with my experience and education.” I assured them.
By the end of the interview, I had them agreeing I shouldn’t have to settle. This doesn’t mean they will be able to come back with an adequate offer but the tattooed woman, my would be boss was impressed by my confidence and vision. She wants what I have to offer.
They have two more days of interviewing. They cannot make an offer until after “Thursday”. They may have to settle for someone who sports a suit jacket instead of a vision. I’ll know Thursday.
