Finally figuring it out

Ok so for a long time now people have been asking "What can I do to help with the wedding?" because:

  • It's a wedding and intended to be a huge event
  • My brother and wife threw their's together in four months
  • There is a lot to do

    For an equally long time I have been saying "Nothing everything is under control" because:

  • We have been arranging this for the better part of two years now
  • Mostly it is just contacting the responsible people and getting them to "make it happen"
  • Two years is a lot of time to get everything in motion for the most part
  • We are generally not that picky about the way things are done, if things are just off electric blue we won't panic
  • We have lots of friends actually taking care of various aspects of the wedding and we all casually talk about it

    So really for all those that think they should be doing "more". There is already enough more going around it is just so thin that no one really sees it. Ha. I guess that is the way it should be. However, for those who really want more wait until the last two days because then there will be enough more to go around.

    Oh in case it hasn't been mentioned yet for all you happy groomsmen out there. You are also bouncers/security enforcement for the wedding .... just in case :)

    Job interview

    As I'm sure may of you know I was in a job interview yesterday for the OSSA. They are a great company and their work is very impressive. The thing that I found most surprising is that they are only 80 people. Out of everything they do I would expect a larger company to be able to do so much.

    I thought the interview went great and everything went well. At the end of the interview I asked when everything would be settled for the job. To my surprise I found that they were going to be making a decision that night to who would move on to the next phase of the interview process. After leaving I was thinking how great it would be to hear Nicole call up and say "Great we would like to have you in next Monday for the technical review!". I was a little surprised when the call was "Thanks for coming and we think that you had some great skills but we don't think you would be a very good fit."

    Damn job hunting.

    The 100th post!

    Yea I have finally hit the 100 post mark!

    Now I didn't intend this to happen but here is a question. As you may know I'm on Facebook. Now it seems that my previous previous employer found me there. Now I wouldn't have a problem but it is the Director of IT that found me which I particularly don't like. Here is the question is it better to just leave the friend request hanging or should I reject it?

    Job hunting

    Funny thing job hunting. You can spend weeks trying to get a job, then when out of the blue something comes along that you are perfect for they say "I'm sorry you aren't senior enough." To say I'm a little miffed over this is being nice. So now comes the fun of trying to make myself senior enough.

    On the off note I was planning on getting a quick job at Staples, just to fill time, since it is close and the staff like me but, I was told that I would get a call last week and I never got one. Oh well that avenue is closed. I think the problem was that I had too much experience.

    Have I commented that I hate job hunting?
