The Working Hour

I don't know why I'm even telling you this - but yesterday I had some preliminary discussions with a group regarding a new job.

I normally don't blog about my job per se too much. Travel for my job, sure. My job itself? Not so much. And I don't think I'll start here.

Suffice to say, I'm not going into specifics here - at least yet. I can say that I didn't go looking - they found me. So I met with them for two hours yesterday. And yes, they would like me to come back for round #2.

No doubt I will comply, because I just don't know where I stand currently, and this is something that would be more for my career than a job. It curtails travel - which oddly enough I like a lot, but whatta gonna do?

The interviews were pretty laid back, but I think I interview fairly well. I'm not bragging, it is just that I have conducted so many, I think I know the pitfalls of being on the other side. That being said, I'm unflinchingly honest in these things. Not unlike here, I have little self-censor mode. It's a blessing and a curse. But usually all parties go in, eyes wide open.

The benefits are better. The pay is better. The commute is less. There is no travel, save some conferences and meetings.

I'll keep you updated, but it will be a slow process. It took 4.5 weeks to schedule this interview between all schedules. I don't know how long round #2 will take.
