Had a third interview today, and to make a long story short...→
I got the job! I'll be the "executive" assistant to a financial planner, and I'll know my official start date and training date information once Future Boss knows when the current assistant is having her last day.
A recent post on the blue about "Minnesota Nice"
and what that means made me really nervous about doing job interviews here, so during the first in-person round I asked what his/her opinion of it was. Future Boss said that she/he didn't really like or believe in it and liked open communication, which gave me a lot of courage (or rope to hang myself with) when we met again today.
Just before he/she had to get going, he/she asked me how long I saw myself working for him/her. Keeping in mind that we'd spent more than a few minutes talking about how I wanted to start a publishing business, I looked at him/her and said, "Well, if my five-year business plan works out, my hope is that you'll turn to me and say that it's more financially feasible for me to work on my business full-time than to be your assistant. And then I'll become your client!"
He/she laughed, said it was a win-win situation for everyone, and then said the job was mine if I wanted it.
So to make this a real post: What have been some of your most recent moments of verbal (or written) badassery?
