This is a Happy Dance
This is Flamingo Dancer doing her happy dance.
Flamingo Dancer is happy dancing because she has a job offer!
And there in lies the twist. I was originally rejected for this position. In fact all applicants were rejected and they decided to advertise a second time, nationally. I wrote them a professional email “polite but assertive” and stated that I thought they had misjudged me, and addressed some of the issues I felt needed clearer understanding.
Well, apparently they respected my assertive action, and considered that I have guts, and so decided to give me the role after all. It was the plum position I really really wanted (please, please, please) in a private co-ed high school. The library is moving into a new building that is being completed over the holidays. Swish, as my sister would say.
Happy, grateful. Relieved.
Now I shall enjoy the rest of my holidays, as we all know the best time in a new job is in the period before you actually start it and come crashing down to reality!
