Thursday Tidbits

I thought that the interview went well. It lasts about 40-50 minutes, and involved myself, the senior MRI tech, and the office manager. I reworked my resume, and added some additional information, and had it in a report folder. I had three of them, so that I looked well prepared. I say that the interview went well because the office manager, towards the end of the session, let me know about vacation time and PTO. The senior tech also gave me a tour of the MRI machine, and work space, which I also took as a good sign.

The senior tech had also done some inquiring about me from one of the teachers at school that was a classmate about 10 years ago. I did find out that the imaging office is corporate owned, and the big boss had given the green light for me to be interviewed. I was told that if they liked me, that he would fly in for a second interview, or do a phone interview.

One of my questions was if they would let me know if I was still in the running or not. They said they would.  Oh yeah, the report folder included some new information, such as proof of my high honors status at graduation, four clinical rotation sheets that included favorable comments from the techs, three personal references, and copies of my BLS and ACLS certifications.

On the home front, I have been working off my nervous energy by clearing out the backyard, and organizing a few things. Mostly it has involved projects that require little money, and a lot of patience. I dug up two dead Crepe Myrtle trees, and a Holly bush. The Holly bush was in the middle of the yard for some reason, and I hated mowing around it. It'll probably save me a few minutes every time I mow, which is a huge plus in my book. 

Probably about the size of a minivan.

I've also cleared out a bug chunk of the back corner where bamboo has taken root. My neighbor, who has lived in the house for 30+ years, made the comment that he has never actually seen that corner of my yard cleared. I'm still in the process of observing the back yard for a garden area. I just might end up with a bunch of 5 gallon buckets from work, and a huge container garden for next year. At least I'll be able to move them around in the yard as the sun moves through the growing season.
