[Nervous] Interview Tomorrow
Posted by tim in It wouldn't fit in any other category... on November 21, 2004

10:00AM, EST.

I am interviewing for this job.

From what I was told, I was under the assumption that it would be mainly a secretarial position. Now that I have read that, it seems as though it may be something more along the lines of my normal work.

So yeah, wish me luck or something.

Ok, here's the deal...

The interview consisted mainly of the interviewer telling me about the job in detail. Among these details was a statement along the lines of, "If any jobs are cut from our department at any time, this position will be the first one to be cut."

That didn't really bother me, at first...

The interviewer took me to the building I would be working in, and showed me some of what I would be responsible for.

That didn't bother me at all...

Just before I left, as we were walking back to the other building, I was informed that the self-employment I do would have to stop if I were to be hired, due to a "conflict of interest". The self-employment that was being refered to would be the consulting, web development, and other general computer work.

Now, that last thing made the first thing seem about six hundred times worse. I would have no problem giving up the work if I were going into a business that actually did the same work, but since this isn't the case, it poses a great problem.

I value my current customers too much to just say, "Seeya later, I got a new job." Aside from that, there are many people that are potential customers that will most likely pull through and help me further my business. I can't just brush them off and move on to the "prestigious" employment.

It is a very tough call for me to make, but if they want me to come back for a second interview, I will have to tell them all of this, thank them for their time, and walk out.
