Interview

I think it went really well! The owner lady was impressed with my calendar and she mentioned that she thinks experience doesn't necessarily need to be before motivation and learning quickly, that sort of thing. So I think I have a pretty good chance! She said she'd probably make a decision by Monday. It was a really informal, relaxed meeting, and she seemed to really like me.

If you ask me, I think you're going to get it! I was the first person of the day for an interview after a failed first group of interviewees. People at work told me that after my interview, which was with the former activities coordinator, my head supervisor, and a caseworker, they were saying, "Do we really have to interview anyone else? She's obvioiusly the one!" So it IS all about enthusiasm. They just knew I really wanted it and said I came across as very "sweet".

It sounds like it's going to be a challenge, though! I not only have to plan and implement the activities, I also have to handle petty cash, and collect and tally everybody's time sheets, and all sorts of stuff like that. But a challenge would be so much nicer than "is that for here or to go?" four hundred times a day.

It's not so bad. I have to keep track of new people that come in and volunteer hours and reporting for grant proposals and transportation and such.

Do you have to take a class that shows you how to get people's criminal histories? That sounds like it's going to be interesting.

I have to take all sorts of weird trainings. It's mostly stuff on case management (since it's a social services place) and transportation.

Do you have to take a class on how to drive your bus? :) I was glad I don't have to but I'm kind of nervous about taking it out for the first time. Maybe they'll let me do it with nobody inside first.

One of the more veteran drivers took me out for a spin in the bus just to orientate me to the vehicle. I have to take trainings through Ride Connection, which is the place that provides us with vehicles. I have one in a couple of weeks called "Mobility Awareness". Then there's another one I'll have to take called "Safe at Any Age". Heh. Let's see. In November I have something on working with Latino families, and next week I have some all day thing for working with adults with disabilities.
