Apparently Lara is all up in my mind today.
Here's the comment she left me:
Women always have a tendency to undervalue themselves - it's sad. It's also apparently a big issue in job applications. Men will apply to all kinds of jobs they don't really qualify for because they figure they should just go for it. If women don't believe they fit all the requirements perfectly they don't bother. *sigh*
She's so right, you know?
And what's weird is, on the 11th I saw an advertisement for a job way outside my field, that looked really interesting and fun and like something I would be good at.
I tried to talk myself out of applying, with my usual self-doubt. But I didn't. I said, "Why not?" and I sent my resume.
They called me last night. I missed the call unfortunately, but when I called back this morning they wanted to see me. Today.
I went for my interview and before I had even left the building they were calling my references.
I don't know if it will work out, y'all, but it feels good to take a chance.
