I'm beginning to think I'm not only the "only person for this job" but that I may be the only applicant for this job and that they're trying to expedite things. The position has formally been open for only a few days, it hasn't been posted on our external site, it didn't appear in this morning's internal weekly job update, they scheduled all my inteviews immediately, and the two interviewers I've seen so far have said, (a) "I really just see this as an informational interview" and (b) "The decision process should be very quick" (early next week).

For HR reasons of course they have to open a position to applicants and hold an interview process, but I'm feeling hopeful. My first two interviews went really well. Next interview at 11:00.

Well, that would be very useful, if so.

I'll be thinking of you at 11:00. (:

They want you. Who can blame them.

You're awesome and I hope this all falls into place for you.

Woo hoo! I'll cross my fingers. And my toes, just to be on the safe side. So, if you get it, will there be extra moolah?

Good luck with the interview! I'm sure you'll do fabulous.

Best of luck - this does indeed have all the earmarks of an internal job, as in "we have the one we want inside already but we have to do the pretty dance for the big bosses". Which, *squee* for you!

This last guy I just interviewed with--the most senior manager on the hiring team--was, like, way too relaxed if he was supposed to be giving me the usual objective critical scrutiny. Like, legs practically on the table, boneless in his chair. Everybody so far seems like they're more or less just passing the time. *g*

Pleasepleasepleasepleasepleaseplease let me get this job. If they offered me what I want to make, but asked me to do a topless dance first, I'd probably do it. I really need to pay my bills.

I will pass along to you, free gratis, all the positive job-mojo from my own "This feels too easy OMG they don't really want ME, do they, wibble wibble wibble" experience last spring.

Casting the bones, I study them, and pronounce -- it sounds like they do truly want *you*, and it's a credit to their good sense. Because you are smart and capable as hell, and (behind the endearingly self-doubting facade) you are *formidable.* That's a concept to carry with you as you continue through the Interview Parade. *Formidable.* It's what you are.

(Of course, we would be delighted to audition the topless dance as well. If, y'know, you feel you must. *g*)

*cuddles you and whimpers* I hope so. Thank you, sweetie. See my latest post, if you will, though--I'm so angsty now. :>P Not to mention nauseous.
