The interview process is complete. Now 'I' just need to be analyzed and scrutinized to see if 'I' meet the needs of the group. Even though these people know me--have known me for years, it still felt as if I was trying to lift myself up to their expectations. But that's the thing: they know me and I can only be blatantly honest. I told my interviewer in conclusion that even if I wasn't hired for the position, I am happy where I am now. He told me that was the wrong thing to say, that I should say that I'll be po'd if I don't get the position. But I love my job and the people with whom I work. I just want the new position because it is all of my current job and more! So I will feel sad if I'm not chosen, not good enough for the position but I won't be devastated.
But it is over now and out of my hands. I hope that I am offered the job but if not, I will continue to work hard at what I do now.
