Day 65: Interviewing, and miscellaney

Today I had my second interview with a non-profit I'd very much like to work with. I think the biggest barrier to my receiving an offer is my over-qualification. The personnel committee asked at least twice questions that basically wondered why I'd take the position and stay.  I offered up what reassurance I could (I'm looking for a long term position where I can grow and do good for the company that employs me) but I recognize that their acceptance of such reassurances comes down to "is it believable?"  I hope that I was convincing.  The opportunity sounds mighty nice, and the reduced compensation is made up for in "good works" and great hours.  I know I'd feel like I was doing something positive, and returning something to my community, in this position. I think I haven't mentioned my impending root canal as yet.  That's next Wednesday at 11:30 am.  I'm told that I do not need to bring someone to drive me home (since I won't be getting gas 'cause that's just an extra expense we don't need on top of a $850 root canal followed by a $1000 cap) so I'll go on my own. Oh, and I'll know Friday (Monday at the latest) about the position with the non-profit.   So now I'm sweating that out. I'm a leg-jiggling, finger-tapping fool, full of energy and hope and worry.  Hah.
