I usually don't start threads like this, but tomorrow I have two job interviews. I need one of them to offer me a position. Both of them are in two different fields... and the second interview is a totally different field than my degree. Cross your fingers. :)

Hey Padunk, good luck! (I know - I feel silly about starting threads like this too, hehehe.) You can have almost all of my luck tomorrow - I still need some of it so that I don't walk into walls or bump into tables and such.

Good luck Padunk. *Fingers Crossed* Let us know. Out of curiosity, what are the jobs for? Either way, I hope you get one of them. I'm sure you'll do great. :D

Good Luck and fingers crossed :)

(To highjack just an incy bit I need some luck tomorrow too - I have an exam to sit in the afternoon which I really need to pass so that I can bid for a new company contract!!)

Relax, be yourself and remember that a good interview is a two way street - the position has to be right for you too :)

Thanks everyone. :)

One job is as a recruiter for a pretty good-sized company. The second is as a testing lab technician for a pretty big chemical company.

Both should pay pretty competitively (not sure what each salary is) but I'd be happy to land either one. I'm buying a house really soon, so I need to be making an adequate amount of money or I'll have to back out of the deal.

Wishing you good luck Rob, but please don't go in to the interview with that "I need this job" attitude -- usually that makes an interviewee too uptight and they don't come off naturally. Just relax; be yourself and do your best!! 8)

Good Luck!!!

I agree with Tim though - I get annoyed when I interview people that are too eager - it usually means they are hiding something... or too desperate for a job - which makes you wonder 'why aren't they staying at their current job, will they use me as a stepping stone etc'

Which job do you want more?
Not sure, it all depends on the salary, benefits package, and how advancement through the company works. All things being equal, I think I'd prefer working for the recruiter because at least it's stuff that I'm somewhat familiar with. I don't know a thing about adhesives, which is what I'll be working with if I get in with the chemical company. Both jobs sound like they'd be a nice fit, though.

Good luck for finding the perfect job!!!
My perfect job is to be a stay-at-home dad with no kids. :mrgreen:

I'd live to thank everyone again for the well wishing. I'll let you know how they went tomorrow.

That seems to be an oxymoron :lol:
Ok so what I really mean is that it'd be awesome for Jessica to make the big bucks while I go play golf everyday. :lol: That's the dreamjob. :wink:

Just an update for everyone: The first interview went great. I was immediately given a second interview right on the spot and they made it sound like they were going to contact me to bring me in for the final step of the hiring process. :)

I still have the next interview at 1pm... and I'm not going easy because the first one went so well.
