I passed the test! Now I have an interview with the iPod support company this week. I also had a call from another on-line support company who want to meet with me on Thursday. This is entirely superficial but I do feel a little better about me as a result. The most interesting thing that happened was that I might have a chance to work on a lobster boat. Out of all the jobs that one sounds the most interesting, the most different from me.
I can see myself on the boat, facing the wind, wearing all kinds of rubber stuff, smelling like fish and using words like ‘brine’ and ‘tackle’ and ‘great white shark’ and ‘arrrr’. I can imagine the boat pounding through the waves under me as I ride it like a giant surfboard into the foamy, choppy blue in pursuit of Homarus americanus or as you landlovers call it: “lobster”. I can almost feel them, my hands against their vicious, maiming claws as I struggle to band them for the safety of others.
I’m really inclined to pursue the job on the boat (which pays incredibly well) but I have this fear. What if I get on the water and I puke my guts up the whole time?
In my heart I’m this rugged adventurer and I don’t want to risk shattering that delusion by finding out I’m a wimp on the water. Plus, the day starts at 3:30 a.m. but it wraps up around 10:30 a.m. so that would be a fantastic schedule for me but I’m not as young as I used to be. I suppose that’s obvious.
I’ll blog about the interviews later this week. If you’ve got any tips for helping me do well in the interviews, comment away, it’s been a while since I’ve done this.
(and I’ve GOT to get the answer to that one question on the logic test…)
