I told you I'd tell you once I knew something more about that job.
I finally sleuthed a bit and found direct email addresses for the three people who had interviewed me, and sent them an email last night. I was going to start making phone calls at 10 AM today. Fortunately, the person who I suspect I'd be reporting to sent an email today at about 9:35 AM.
The message was: we're interviewing a lot of different people. Sit tight, we'll have something in two weeks and will tell you then.
It's not a yes.
But it's not a no, either. And I am not abandoned and forgotten ("Alone and Forsaken" is the name of a song that Dave Matthews and Neil Young sang for the benefit for Haiti Earthquake relief. It's a beautiful, haunting song and I am very, very glad it did not become today's blog song).
This is, as we say in the parlance, an executive-level search. Yes. Lil ole me.
So these things take a while. I'm just being a tad impatient and nutty.
In the meantime, of course, I send out other applications, and either tomorrow or next week I will return to going to networking meetings and events. No sense in stopping the networking train.
And I will be insane again, by the 25th, 26th or so. But in the meantime, a huge relief.
Plus this song is kinda silly.
And we can all use a lot more silliness mixed in with our seriousness.
