Job Interview on Tuesday!

Hey Everyone!

Well as most of you know- I work for my state's majorElectricity Company. I've been there almost 2 years now, and am usually in Customer Service but have been filling in on Reception recently.

Anyhow, a number of weeks ago I put in an application for a job as a Network Service Officer on a whim, even though I *know* I'm not qualified for it, and would have to do a considerable amount of training before I could actually undertake the day to day tasks involved...

But a friend from that department called me today, and I have an interview on Tuesday next week! Out of the 35 applications, mine was apparently the most impressive- and I'm the most promising of the 5 people they are going to interview...?

Oh my god it all seems like some strange fluke... I'd be clearing $55000 a year before tax if I got this! Which for a 21 year old girl who *hasn't* completed college yet (part time student), that isn't too bad.

At the moment, in the more technical jobs, the ratio is only 1 female to 30 guys in my company. Like any other company, females dominate the administrative roles. So apparently, the board wants to put a female in the position of Network Service Officer- in an attempt at getting the 1:30 balance a tiny bit more even.

What I can't believe though, is that they actually really liked my application. I spent all of maybe, 10 minutes writing up that thing? If I get this job (big IF here) I will basically have a say in where new electricity lines are going, and where they can't go, and where they can go, and how much it will all cost, and how much we'll need to increase our load capacity etc. It would be so full on.

I'm absolutely amazed... now it's just down to how well I do in the interview whether I get it or not. Keep your fingers crossed for me

$55,000 before taxes?? Not too bad?? LOL, yeah I'd say that's pretty damn awesome for a 21 year old! I'm turning 22 in a few weeks and I don't make close to that, but then again, it's 2 different industries, I guess Electric Companies pay good money.

They usually put too much jargon in job descriptions... don't sell yourself short! They liked your resume... that is half the batttle. Good Luck!!
