I will try to make a long story short the dean of the community college called me over 2 months ago to ASK me to apply for a job,, and then when the move to a new location if everything worked out he would like me to then apply for the director of ths school.
I have had 2 people get a job there on my rec. One, a very dear friend of mine who, I have helped get numerous postitions.. SHE has sit on every panel that I have interviewed in front of,, but yesterday, it was between me and someone else,, now mind you,, up until YESTERDAY,, I thought she was on my side.
She started off the interview by saying how flaky and inconsitstent she felt the prior company I worked for was, and they did not get products 9 out of 10 times they ordered them(untrue) she said she was worried that I might be depressed and looking for a way out of my current job,, "to ride her coat-tails."I was honestly floored, and if Ihad not wanted the current job so badly,, I probably would have slammed my hands down on the table and gave her what for.. I nicely said that if there was any problem,, she should have made me aware of it at the time,, and for 22 years I have been at the school on a weekly basis,, and this was the first time I have ever heard of such problems.
I think she caught wind somehow they were looking to hire me as director,, but REALLY who does that?
I guess it is more than likely not going to happen,, I am at a loss as what to do,, it ended very well, but she brought up negative things at least 20 times,, I am waiting to give her hell until I find out,, lol
THEY did contact my references today,, several people called and said they asked alot of questions, and they all gave good feedback, what to do now?
