And it’s always used in the context of really bad experiences hitting someone one right after another. Well, in the past two weeks I have found myself wishing that this phrase had an equivalent for a sudden stream of positive experiences. Stroke of luck? I don’t want to put it that way because I’ve had strokes of luck in such a short span of time. Let’s just say that if for every stroke of luck, you got struck my a jolt of lightning, I’d be pretty fried now.
Maybe I should just get to it.
Four interviews. FOUR. In the span of two weeks. And not just for any jobs, but for professional technical communicator positions. Two I’ve done already, one this Friday, and another possibly for next week… What is happening to the world??? Where were these lovely jobs when I was so desperate for one 4 or 5 months ago. Out of the dry job hunting desert spouted not a fountain, but a FREAKING GEYSER. Not to mention, what type of parallel universe is this where my engineering and IT friends are *not* getting any callbacks while I, the lowly English major, am sitting on four interviews. Universe, I think I have given up trying to understand you.
I keep telling myself I should just kick back and really take a moment to relish this moment, absurd as it may be.
P.S. I already know which one of the four I’d like to work for. It’s just a matter of getting that callback by the end of the week now…
