New job new job yippee yay

So after sending out approximately 24 resumes, I have a new job!

On Wednesday (at some point, not sure when) I got a call asking me to come in for an interview on Thursday. Since I don't listen to my voicemails in a timely manner ever, I got the message around 1pm on Thursday. I spent an hour dilly-dallying and debating whether it was worthwhile to call so late - they'd been doing interviews all day, surely the Perfect Someone had already shown up - but if I didn't call, I'd always regret it so I forced myself to dial up.

I got an interview for 5:45 and it was one of the strangest I've ever had. The doctor (Resume 13: Acupuncture Office in Campbell) was seeing patients at the same time, so he kept going in and out. I filled out a three page application, and most of the interview was him reading the application and asking a confirming question from the page.

But hey, I got the job! Can't complain. It fits perfectly with school - 3 pm - 8 pm on M, W, F - so that I have a choice between morning daily classes or school just Tues & Thurs. For my trial period it's a tiny pay cut - $11 an hour - but I get a raise after 30 days so it should be fine.

Stupid me, I didn't think to ask about benefits. Oh well. Probably don't have any, so what difference does it make?

All I have to do is stay at this job and build up some office experience. Bust out of retail is all that I want!
