Thinking I should have sent Thank you Notes to the interviewers-
YES good reminder- just reviewed to see it is not too old school.
I used to ALWAYS do this.
But truth be told I also did not used to land many interviews. I got to the point in my career that getting interviews is easy but landing the role is harder as I am holding out for adequate compensation for my skill set, experience and truth be told NEEDS based on where I live. Living in one of the most expensive (wealthiest) counties undoubtedly informed what I ask for and look for as far as compensation.
So I got out of the habit of sending thank you notes; likely correlating with me not really caring if I land any particular job typically-
BUT this one opportunity feels so very different. I WANT This job. I think the company has integrity and is so smart and is truly motivated to change our world to help others AND is in that large corporate space to influence.
I mean it is exactly what I HOPED to find and thought was going to be hard to find so I keep looking. If I can break into this particular role I can thank my Verizon experience and all I learned there, as well as the subsequent work I have been fortunate to land. I really am thankful for all the spaces I have worked and been able to contribute to a mission that was valuable and does good work in the world.
So my laizze fair don't really give a fuck go with flow what is to be will be
And I also got to the point where I am like "fuck it" about worry about having to pull from the 401K. That shift hit me when I wanted to go get ice cream WITH MY TEEN NOW
*I think it is a lovely color AND it matches her comforter and would look fabulous personally. I had no involvement in picking that paint but like it! But the point is she makes the room her own so I am going to stay out of her decision!
I will put the primer down today however and encourage her to be decisive and follow through. I just wish this kid was awake now as would have been getting this done!! But she is not an early bird EVEN when went to bed early. ( Although I believe she was up late last night!)
So I enjoyed the TV time but truth be told it contributed to me falling asleep later. I watched a few episodes! (Not quite done with Season 1)
SLEEP works way better! I had napped in the afternoon as was exhausted but likely had gone to bed at 8 or 9 honestly could have just crashed then and there! I KNEW I was too tapped to be productive...
I am just kinda procrastinating as going into the retirement community where there is the vaccination clinic and want to time it right. Its like I can't be really productive QUICKLY this AM. My brain too tired for that. I have to write these than you notes...
I don't want to go too early as they are inoculating residents so like to head in a bit later when they do these clinics. Try to wait as they pace when folks come in. Too early it will be busy and I will have to wait ( or will help get residents in there!) Later better. I feel like residents and full time staff are priority and since I am every other weekend I SHOULD be last! (Honestly its the medical triage thinking... so I usually show up later! JUST IN case they are short in supplies sent. That does happen sometimes!)
DANG OK will be gentle with myself. I am still TIRED. Will write notes TODAY... or TOMORROW.
I was just tapped out last night and unfortunately STILL am this AM. already ate some oatmeal and walked the dog and STILL tired.
So after the appointments we will come back and THEN I can attack my to do of VEC and job hunting and thank you notes to get out.
* looks like I forgot to save! Already turned out to be a productive morning! I made it to the clinic and had a super short wait and got my shots. It was so much faster than previous times. Then I headed to a print shop to get a quote for notecards with my company logo. The local shop works quickly!
