I heard back from the hiring manager on the job for which I interviewed recently. They decided to go with someone else.
I am not surprised. Disppointed, sure. Just not surprised. In fact, if they had offered me the job, I would have considered it a miracle. While I do believe that We are All Miracles, I do not count on miracles for daily living, which is what this career change is about.
As it was my first job interview in over 16 years, I went into it with no idea of what to expect. I should have done some of that research that I am always going on about in other settings — but I did not until it was over. Now that I have (done some research), I am beginning to understand how I could have done a better job at the interview, regardless of the outcome.
I do have a few books to consult on this mystery called interviewing and have found some websites that have given me much to ponder. If there are any sites or books that you have found particularly useful, please mention them in the comments.
So, my job search continues. I have been a bit busier with notary work lately, both general notary work directly with the public and notary signing agent work for clients and the consumers that are their customers. That and doing a lowkey launch of my first notary-related ebook (which has already netted some small amount of profit) has boosted my morale.
I know that finding the right job is a marathon, not a sprint. I am patient for the right opportunity. Meanwhile, I just need enough income to keep the wolf from the door.
If you are a notary who is curious about the notary signing agent business or a new NSA who wants to know how to proceed, I encourage you to buy my ebook. It is a lowcost and short collection of articles. I believe that it will give you much to think about and do if you are serious about the notary signing agent business.
