View Full Version : Interview!

I put out the word last week that I am interested in pursuing an executive director position, after several years as a development director, and got an immediate response with a very compelling position, so I sent off all the stuff. I have a few years as an ED as well. Today, I got an email that I have a first interview! I am quite pleased.

I'm in no hurry to get other work to augment my current half time position, and not yet ready to leave my current position as I would like to make it work. However, it's very gratifying to get an interview with the first thing I send feelers out for.

Just had to share... interview is mid-month, by phone, as it's a national organization. I hope it feels good - I really like their mission.

Awesome! What I have learned over the years is if it is a good fit in many ways but you didn't think you wanted it then jump on it. A great opportunity to even just interview can lead to all sorts of things, including clarifying what you want.

Thanks... the interview was okay; I got an email that I didn't make it to the last round, and adjusted to that. Then, I got another email saying that they had decided to include me in the last round after all - I think they lost a candidate & I was third on the list of six. The runner-up, so to speak.

I'm happy about this! It involves some travel that I have to pay for, but will be fun. So, next month, the final interviews with the Board & staff. Very cool. Bonus: they know I have another half time job, and would be staying with that, at least for now.
