Today I had two job interviews. The first one was in the morning and it was fairly close. I wasn't nervous at all because it was just an interview with an employment agency. Those are piece of cake interviews because they really want to find you a job so that they can make money off of you. I probably wouldn't even have set up an interview with them but they tricked me and acted like a real employer on the phone and then of course I got home and realized otherwise. Oh well. The good thing about this agency is that they start your benefits immediately when you get hired. I hate being without health insurance so this is a good thing.
My second job interview was pretty close to the Red Rock Casino. Again this is on the west side of town and thus pretty close to my house. Good! I like that. The position I applied for was a personal assistant to an attorney. He owns a very upscale law firm that specializes in estate management etc. He is also a national speaker and travels about once a month all over the country. I would have to prepare his presentations, travel with him and basically assist him with whatever he needs. Could be fun. First I talked to the Office Manager for a while and then he came in and we chatted for over an hour. I think that's a good sign. I don't think he would have wasted that much time with me if he wasn't interested.
I'll keep my fingers crossed.
Tomorrow is part two of my dentist appointment. I'm having the temporary crowns taken off and the permanent ones are going on. GOD I hope it's not as painful as the last appointment was.
In the afternoon tomorrow I have another interview. This one is an Office Manager position with an IT Firm. I like the office manager positions because usually you are given more responsibility, the pay is higher and sometimes you can challenge yourself. I don't like receptionist positions because the pay is low and you just answer the phone usually. BORING! I've been there done that.
Does anyone have any experience with the Wunderlic Test??? I found out that I have to take one of these tests on Friday for Cox Communications. I'm trying to get a job with them and they won't even interview you if you don't score well on the Wunderlic Test.
I did some searching on the web and found some practice tests. The actual test is 50 questions and they give you 12 minutes to take it. I did a practice one online last night and they gave me 10 questions to do in 2 minutes. I finished all 10 questions and I got 8 out of 10 correct. I was in the "above average intelligence" category. They actually have a "moron" category and I'm glad I didn't score in that range.
