Job interview

I interviewed yesterday for a promotion. I would basically be the manager in charge of my current position in addition to about 4 others (and possibly more) with a nice pay raise.

It's a position I've been lobbying for (well, a modified version) for the past three-years.

My concern is that the modifications that were made to the position (heavy emphasis on Marketing, where I only have marginal experience).

But I think I did really well in the interview (uh oh... is that the kiss of death? :-) I know 4 out of the 5 people on the interview panel quite well.

Now it's wait and see. I'm in Tampa next week for a conference, but they said it will be a couple of weeks before the process is done.

Now, I wait.

The hiatus... over.

Been a hectic few weeks, with the start of school (work gets considerably busier), a trip to Newfoundland (which was awesome) and just general craziness that encompasses my life. I was going to post something more serious or deep, but let's reflect on my vacation instead. We went for 2 weeks. I could have stayed for many more.

IMHO, if you ever get the opportunity to go to St. John's, Newfoundland? Go.

An amazing city in an amazing place.

Here's a beautiful girl overlooking a beautiful harbour:
