Ha. I was scheduled for an interview today, but I cancelled. Can you believe that? I had an INTERVIEW and I CANCELLED. For no particular reason. I'm not saying that I don't need a job. I need one bad. And I'm pretty flexible. I can be a financial advisor, work in a lab, be an analyst. I would really like to be an IT analyst. I didn't graduate with an MIS degree but I took all the classes required of MIS majors and did better than most of the kids in the MIS program. I'm telling you I knew more than 95% of the kids in those classes. And I even skipped the pre-reqs for the MIS classes. A stupid intro to MIS class. I thought the instructor was going to kick me out on the first day of VB class, but he didn't say anything. All the classes were so easy. And I got stuck with most of the work anyways, cause people in the business school, at least the ones I dealt with, were plain lazy.
I had a grad student in one of my groups who didn't know how to use access or VB. When he said he knew VB, it meant, "I have read books on it, but no hands on programming." So contribution, zero. My other groupmate a super senior, who just wanted to graduate. And then there was me. The over achiever who was taking this class "for fun." People would look at me as if I had two heads when I would tell them I wasn't a MIS major. "Then why are you taking these classes?" Uh. "Because they're an easy A." No, of course I didn't say that. Something along the lines of, "I am interested in MIS and I have lots of electives left, so here I am!" So fake.
Back on topic. So I turned down this interview. I called, said thank you, and that I would not need to reschedule cause I found another job. A lie. I don't know. I just didn't feel like going to the interview. I'm sure I would have liked the work. I'm an amiable person. But there was a part of me that said, "No Azura, this one isn't for you."
And behold, on the day I cancel my first ever interview, I get another phone call from a different employer. A totally different kind of work. I told you, I am kind of a jack of all trades. But then I think everyone is in his or her own way. Is this the job that I had been speaking of this morning when i cancelled? Creepy.
