Job Interview

So my husband has a job interview at 5PM tonight. I'm sitting on pins and needles about it. This could be a big step in his career. He isn't quitting his current job and is only looking to do part time or casual work for this other company. It's a big step in that he will get to learn how to run a bigger printing press. Right now he runs a 4-color one and he's also ran 5- and 6-color ones before but never an 8-color. And that is what this job is. We are hoping he gets the chance to take on this job simply for the experience. There aren't many 8-colors in NZ and most people luck into the job because they already work for the company that has one so they just advance someone. Hugh doesn't have that opportunity at his current job to run this press. He knows there are 2/3 other people applying for the job as well. We are just hoping they don't have more experience than Hugh. He called me and I asked if he was nervous about his interview and he said he isn't thinking about it but he is thinking about how he will spend his first paycheck lol. And that's because I told him if he gets the job then his first paycheck can be all his to do with what he wants lol. He's wanting to buy a guitar so I'm hoping he really sells himself in that interview. An hour and seven minutes and counting..............

Ok, so he didn't get offered the job on the 8-color. However, the guy did want to know if he could so some other work on the other presses if they need him. So Hugh told him yes but he is suppose to call him in a few days.

Bummer about the 8-color job. STINK ONE! Because you and I both know he CAN do it. But hey, perhaps if he takes the work on the other presses, he will prove how good he is and he might get promoted!
