While my hopes were up for two months I finally heard back yesterday and I did not get the job in Walnut Creek. Cest la vie. As much as I really wanted that job I’m not very upset at not getting it. Rather I’m freaking out because I will now be unemployed after tomorrow. However, I am still optimistic. I recieved a call today from an agency in San Francisco that saw my resume on Monster.com and wants me to come in for an interview on Monday. While they don’t have any design positions right now, they want to interview me for possible recommendation to their clients. I hope it goes well and doesn’t turn out to be like the gallery job, as they did say it was graphics and administrative. So we’ll see come Monday.
Additionally my rejection yesterday has reinvigorated my efforts to get my portfolio up and on the web. I spent a couple hours this morning working on it and as soon as I swap in my images for the gallery part it will be ready to be uploaded and enjoyed.
