Who came up with that catchy phrase? So true.
Yesterday I was feeling sad with no prospects of a future job. Today I've been contacted by two companies for interviews. Yay me!
Company 1: I worked with their CFO at my current company in 1999. He actually interviewed me. He left in 2004. I contacted him last week via linkedin to tell him of my current job status. I received an email via linkedin from his HR person saying the CFO asked him to contact me about a temp job for a few months (maternity leave fill in). Once the gal returns from maternity leave the job will transition to a generalist position helping A/R and A/P. They are not a new company but they're young still and in a similar place financially like my current company was 12 years ago. I'm doing a phone interview tomorrow. The other kicker is the office manager (who is optional on the phone interview) used to be this guy's exec admin at my current company who I know very well too. She left here to go work for him a few years ago. The downside is the commute. Much longer than I have now. The industry is semi-conductor which is what I've been working in for the past 12 years.
Company 2: A couple weeks ago I applied for this postion online. I have a friend who years ago used to work for them in sales but after 7 year gone she doesn't have any current contacts. Still, I applied and they called me back today for an interview next week. This company is very close to my house. It's in a completely different industry - Wine and spirits distribution. But, it's working on a system I currently use and in my field expertise.
Both jobs are very similar. Not sure of the pay for either.
I still need to interview. Nothing is final until it's final.
