Waiting for my dream job to materialize

I’ve accepted a job for doing intake work, but hoping for another position to work out. There was one I applied to last year that I really wanted, but it didn’t work out cause I couldn’t update my cpr due to the pandemic though now it is updated. Now they’ve contacted me again for an interview and it combines the arts and social work. Really anxious about the job I did accept and want this one more! Please wish me luck and positive energy

Is it an art therapy type role? I prayed for you to get the job.

Aw thank you for your prayers! I studied art therapy but no it’s not that. It’s as a counsellor at an arts based school

Wow that sounds heavy but fulfilling. I couldn't do that role. It's excellent they called you back isn't itas they could have gone right over you and on to recent applicants so that has to be a positive sign!

Yeah I definitely see it as positive, I feel like they had a hard time filling the position cause it was posted a month ago, so hoping I’m what they are looking for.

Have an update: I passed the phone screening and they interviewed me today. I feel I could have done better though to be fair, I gave lots of examples from previous jobs. And talked about what it’s like working with youth. I wish I was more prepared with interview questions. Will find out next week and feeling impatient

Nobody ever feels like they do good enough in interviews. I'm sure you did a great job. Hope you get the position! smile

Aw thank you! And so true, I made a list of the positives but now thinking of more questions I could have asked. I also felt awkward cause 3 of them were talking to me and one had nothing to say, so I don’t know. I hope they ask for my references soon
