Interview Updates

D's interviews, all 4 of them went well yesterday. Two were anticipated and 2 were surprise ones that popped up last minute. He was exhausted by the end of the day as you can imagine.

It's going to be an easy going recovery weekend in anticipation of hopefully another full week of second interviews and maybe a job offer would be nice?

One position stood out for him. It is the contract one with potential of it becoming full time in 6 months. He is the most excited about it because of the scale and potential of the position. There will be some travel which is fine with him. He is hoping to hear from them next week the most.

If this position ends up being the one, it would be yet another form of contract work we have not heard of before. Apparently, this position is still expected to pay more and the company collects taxes and pays for the standard government deductions?

So you wouldn't be considered self employed and in that case, would mean unemployment insurance would still be available and it would also mean we wouldn't have to put away our own version of self insurance. Won't know for sure until an offer is on paper.


  1. Wow! 4 interviews in one day - how exciting! My fingers are crossed, D!! Please let us know what happens.

  2. 4 interviews in a day + more next week is wonderful!!! Unemployment rate here in Jersey is 10%. It's really hard for unemployed people to find a job.

    Good Luck!

  3. Thanks for your vote of support Northern Living Allowance! D really appreciates it! He has another 1st interview this week and is hoping to hear about 2nd interview opportunities too.

    Hi Sandra!

    He is really lucky right now. Our province is at a 9.3% unemployment rate. So we aren't questioning things. Nothing firm has happened but i think it is a great boost to even get interviewed at a time like this.
