View LYNNABEL's food & exercise for this day

The interview went very well. I was impressed with what I heard both about the company and the culture. I did not expect to hear integrity as a priority (after all, its an insurance company) but I heard it loud and clear. I think I sold myself very effectively, and will just be waiting now for news in mid December. I was happy, actually, to hear that they are interviewing other people. In this role, I would get a break from people management which right now is attractive. I would be very self-managed, which is perfect, and the politics seem minimal. Itís a whole new industry to learn, which I always enjoy. We talked about timing, and Chris, the SVP I interviewed with and would be reporting to, was fine with the idea that I wouldnít start until mid-March if I were offered the job. Frankly, the only unknown is salary Ė if I can make this a financially lateral move minus some benefits, Iím thinking I will take it. If I canít make it financially lateral, then I need to think about it a bit more. But - as far as I can tell at this point, the job itself seems less stressful and the title/role is a step ďupĒ from my current one. Oh, and Chris was giddy at the idea of S being a SAHD. Thatís always worth points in my book.

I bet an employer would be happy to hear that your husband is a SAHD -- what a great selling point for you!! :) And, sometimes the less stress is worth the less $$$. Good luck!!!!
