I believe I have mentioned here several times that I am job hunting right now. Mrs. Geek and I want to relocate to a different area where housing is much more affordable. I am trying to find a job that will let us do this.
The big news around here right now is that I got an invite to come and interview from a software company in the area where we want to live. It's a big company, one that you most definitely have heard of. I would potentially be working in a division of the company that is a good match for my background and professional interests.
How do I feel about this? I am alternately euphoric about this level of interest in me, and feeling slightly ill with nerves. I feel optimistic about the possibilities, but then I look at the reading list attached to the interview offer (yes... there are a selection of classic and semi-classic computer science texts that they recommend cracking open before the visit) and wonder if can I really pull this off. The fact that this all possibly could actually happen also is starting to sink in... and that takes me outside my comfort zone, making me anxious.
I tossed and turned last night, fixated on dreams where a potential employer was asking me to show up either for the interview or the first day of work (I don't remember which) in a dress. An ugly, floral print summer dress with shoulder pads.
Oops... did I say that last part out loud? Oh well.
