That was three weeks I went without a job. Very scary.

After about a week and a half I had 2 job interviews scheduled. The first was with Sirius who have been looking for a software developer. While that interview went well, I naturally got anxious after it was over. Even though it lasted a good 2 hrs I feared that I had not been as good as I could have been. I was asked a technical question about SQL which I answered wrong, then told them Google was my best friend when it came down to solving problems like that. They seemed ok about it, but I felt it was a dent in my case.

The next interview I had was scheduled for the Monday after with Firespring - but on the Friday before, I received a strange letter from them telling me the position had been filled. I couldn't understand why they had decided to book an interview with me just before sending me this letter but I interpreted it as meaning my interview was canceled.

Come Monday evening, I recieved a call from them asking where I had been. (!!!?) We rescheduled for the next day and I went in to another EPIC interview. Ive broke my current record now - 2 and a half hours - I was exhausted afterwards.

I came home to a call from Sirius asking me to come in for a followup interview the next day. I went into it this time with a more positive feeling and it went really well.

Not long after I got back I got a third call from them - this time to come in and discuss an offer. All my stressing seemed to be coming to an end. As I drove home from this one, I just felt so thankfull that it possibly could be over.

...Until I get into the house and Firespring have called offering me a job too. I couldn't believe it. Too much at once to handle. Suddenly my stress came back. What if I chose the wrong one?

Either way, I eventually chose Sirius. I start tommorrow....

Thank you to all who prayed for us. We can all start to live life again.
