Interesting developments on the job front. As I mentioned, when I was hired for this consulting gig, I was told that it would lead to a full on position with benefits and everything. Below is a conversation I had with a friend of mine at work.
Kelly is another intern. She is still in school. She is very a tall and pretty Asian girl who wanted to go to art school but her family forced her into law. (That all is completely irrelevant.)
Kelly: Did you notice that they posted your (permanent) job on the website?
Me: Yeah, I saw that.
Kelly: Did they tell you about it?
Me: No. No one mentioned it.
Kelly: How about when you had your meeting with (new interim Jefe)?
Me: He didn’t bring it up.
Kelly: Weird. No one has said anything about it. It’s almost like they don’t want you to know that it’s there.
Me: Funny that.
Kelly: And you can’t apply online.
Me: No. Snail mail only.
Kelly: The posting says you are supposed to address the cover letter to that guy they just fired. It’s like they don’t want anyone to apply for it.
Me: So weird.
My take. The job is probably earmarked for someone. I am just not entirely convinced that it is me. In other, somewhat related news, I’ve implemented a lot of cost saving measure around here. I am not sure dying my own hair is a good idea.
* Yes, I am getting dramatic.
