My foot in the door!
My dear friend Tanya (a.k.a. life coach) has been a big help in transitioning me back to Canada. She has volunteered to plan my entire Canadian wedding which I'm so thankful for. She also has kept her eyes out for jobs/ positions for Sung Hyun and I. Overall, she's just an awesome person and I'm proud to call her my friend!
You may remember Tanya from some way back response to somewhat of a heated topic (too lazy to look for the link) where she replied to some anonymous person who commented about my inability to work at a university due to my lack of credentials.
About 2 months before I returned to Canada she sent me an email telling me I should apply for the University ESL Sessional Lecturer position starting the end of September. I was going back and forth about whether I should even apply, but I gave it a go anyways.
Last week I went for the interview. I wasn't nervous at all and I felt very comfortable talking with the ladies who were interviewing me. The interview lasted about an hour and they asked me all sorts of questions. After the interview I met up with my former university professor, now friend, for a lunch date.
The following day they called me to tell me I got the job!!!! I've been to the orientation and meet/greet with the students. And as of today, they've up'd my 2 classes a week to 4 which puts me into the full-time hours. YIKES!
Looks like I've got more than just my foot in the door.
And to be honest I'm a little scared!
