Send a message via Yahoo to -DEADLY SUSHI-
Mudbug goto their website and read up on the company. Never talk about past jobs negativly. Prepare yourself before the interview with a nice cup of tea or water. Remember not to slouch in your seat. When you sit upright your voice sounds more entergetic. Prepare before they call and...... GOD BLESS!!!! YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Never forget the value of a good hand shake. Firm. If your potential employer is German, once up, once down. As a woman working in a man's world (when I worked, haha), it is amazing how many times being able to shake hands got me respect. No limp fingers, no contest to see who is strongest. It sounds stupid and old-fashioned, but a good handshake at the beginning can't hurt and might help.

Well. One e-mailed, one-page resume, one phone interview, two on-site interviews, one online application, and the job is mine.

I'm getting the official offer letter via FedEx tomorrow. I start the day after Labor Day.

One of the nice parts is that I don't have to do any of the icky things I used to have to do at my similar old job, and all of the fun ones. I also found out recently that this company was mentioned a couple of years ago in Forbes as one of the best 100 companies to work for.

Thanks for everyone's moral support. I'm pumped.
