My stay in LA has been great.
I stayed in this awesome hotel about a block away from where the office was. I was lucky enough to be able to check into my room early and take a little nap before I went to the interview.
After I woke up I went for a walk around the block to check West Hollywood out.
It was incredibly nice out. Around 75 degrees. I checked the weather back home... 12 degrees. That’s a plus for LA.
The interview went awesome. It was with 3 people, one of whom was my friend who had recruited me.
I’ve had interviews that went ok. I have had bad interviews where I know that the position has been filled and I am just a number for them to put on an HR sheet saying that they interviewed so many candidates.
This was a great interview. It reminded me of my last interview at my current job back in 2007. A conversation about what’s going on and stories of what I have done in the past.
After it was over my friend Lisa walked me out.
“You killed it.”
I knew I had a great interview. Hearing it from someone just made me feel awesome.
She said I should hear something by the end of the week or beginning of next week. I really hope it’s sooner rather than later.
What’s nice about the job is that my hours would be VERY different from what I am working right now. I would be out of the office at 8pm. Some days, if it’s slow, I would be out earlier.
I have been toying with the idea of moving to LA for a few years now. The timing never really felt right.
Right now, it feels good.
After the interview I headed back to my hotel and had drinks with a guy who couldn’t make it into the interview but wanted to get to know me.
A buddy of mine had told me that having drinks is a good thing. I am guessing he wanted to see me in a social setting and make sure that I am not some socially inept guy.
After drinks I met up with two friends from the blog world that I had never met in person. Kelly and JR. We had quite a few drinks around WeHo and joked about what will be coming for me.
Overall... the experience was great. Now I just need to hear from them.
