I mean, uh, I'm graduating!

Smiley: yippee

At 2:30 PM today, I'll officially have this. (Oh hey, they've updated the website.) It's kind of a hybrid graduate MIS/MBA. Got ranked 14th in the country last year, to our surprise.

Two years, several thousand miles of commuting to the next big town over (ironic since the actual main campus is four miles away from here), and a $20,000 loan because even though tuition was fairly reasonable, it was still more than I had saved up.

Now, I do need to find a better (read: higher paying) job, and the issue I'm facing is that everything I'm qualified for and want to do is in ATL, meaning I'll have to move or commute. So I'm focusing on remote jobs and stuff within the university. Maybe I'll get lucky.

So is it sexist for you to have asked that, or to not know the answer is yes?

My focus was on the documentation and project management aspects of it, but I'm also quite happy with formal systems analysis.

If I'm lucky, I'll get the Windows System Principal job I applied for (since it's local.)

Good luck. You're employed now, I take it? That will make this process a **** of a lot less stressful than it would have been otherwise.

Also, GRATS!

I'm quitting my current job next week :P

Fortunately, the husband makes enough that I only really work because I want to.

Wait... want to work? I mean, I can understand wanting to keep yourself busy, and the extra income surely can't hurt, but to only work because you want to? Well, that must be a **** enjoyable job.

Well, I have a roof over my head, food to eat, and all my basic expenses met. Without a second income, we'll be fine, although our vacations won't be to crazy places like Tokyo or Amsterdam.

But my car is from 1997 and I like performance PCs. New cars and gaming systems don't get paid unless I'm the one that does it. And I like going on crazy vacations.

So, I work.

It's also wise to be out in the work-a-day world keeping your skills honed.

Very true. After my father passed away in 2002, for two years my mother was basically helpless. She didn't know how to run the house, pay the bills, or do anything, since my father had done all of that. We had the help of a very good compassionate banker that set up everything to be done automatically (before that was really the norm like it is today), and she set about hiring a handyman to take care of the rest of the house... We should have screened that more thoroughly since he's the one that went berserk and killed her two years later. Same tragic story you hear every week. Smiley: frown

Anyway, you're right, I need to keep my own work record good because while working is not a necessity for me today, that may not always be the case.

Yeah my family drama reads like a game of Clue. Smiley: frown He's in jail for 150 years now with no chance of probation - he narrowly escaped the death penalty due to a plea bargain.

On a happier note, I have a Serious Job Interview for the first time since graduation. It's over the phone since HR for the company is in Montana, but the actual job is in an office about four miles from my house.

I don't want to jinx it because this is pretty much my dream job, but wish me luck!

Ugh. I did a phone interview once. It sucked. You lack the visual clues to know when someone has started and/or stopped speaking. I talked over the interviewer once, but a couple times sorting out my answer to a question left an awkward silence. Be careful.

Good Luck!

I've done telemarketing so long now that I don't even think about being over the phone as a bad thing. I spoke with the HR person for a few minutes yesterday when we were scheduling this (she missed her appointment with me, so I showed some initiative and called her back - I think that scored some points) and I think we have good phone rapport already.

My concern is that I'm going to babble, or talk too quickly with my southern accent. I have no problem with Montana accents (considering my entire extended family lives there and my father came from there) but she may take some issue with my rapid-fire Atlanta speak.

You'll do fine. Just relax and breathe. You'll ace the interview and be gainfully employed in no time!
