Camping gear for fun-loving tent-pitchers
In addition to collaborating with artists to create some of the most outrageous camping tents you’ll ever see, U.K.-based FieldCandy abides by strict environmental and ethical standards.
Recently when a client announced she had received and accepted a job offer as an adjunct Community College faculty member, I was reminded how fast the process can go from interview to offer when the employer wants the candidate.
She had an interview on Friday and an offer the following Monday. Lightning speed compared to the three months it took from the on-line application to the first interview. It took her by surprise, which led her to question the offer.
She isn’t alone. Clients are rejected repeatedly until, as if by magic, they find their work soul mates. They wonder what was different that the employer finally picked them. Then they start to question if it’s the right job, because after all they’ve been rejected for months. Echoes of Grouch Marx, “I don’t want to belong to any club that will accept people like me as a member.”
And then they shake themselves out of their stupor and the sky starts brighten and smiles start to break out because they were finally wanted. When it’s right, it flows. It’s quick, heart pounding, and validating. You finally hear everything you want to hear. You’ve finally found your next chapter.
When I’m working with clients who have waited weeks for answers after interviews, I advise them give up on the vigil. There is always something important for every candidate to learn from an employer interaction. It’s healthy to know when to let go and move on in the search. Keep up the job hunt, even if you are interviewing. If you aren’t selected you have a process in play to return to.
When interviewing, relax. Enjoy the process. If it’s right, it will go so fast it will take your breath away.

It confirms what I already knew - people read blogs (including mine) on Saturday and Sunday - but in my experience no one really posts new DIYs then. *But I believe this doesn’t apply to Tumblr. I have literally seconds for someone to notice my post and decide whether to like or reblog it.
