Earlier this week, I was facing two job interviews and feeling rather nervous about them, especially the second interview. The interviews were with Target and Brinks. The reason I was more anxious about the interview with Brinks is because it was the more ideal of the two companies. It allows me to further my career in the Security or Law Enforcement career field. However, I did not have a couple of the licenses they require; the CLEET and an Oklahoma driver's license.
I honestly did not expect much to come from the interview with Brinks. I managed to get a job offer from Target and tentatively accepted it the morning of my interview with Brinks. I walked into the Brinks office expecting nothing more than to walk out with more experience in making it through job interviews. I definitely did not expect to be offered a job as soon as I walked in. The interview was rather short, because most of their questions were answered by my application. They were quite pleased with my application. My military background was a definite plus here.
It is not set in stone, by any means. I still have a bit of running around to do before they officially hire me, but I am hoping to get some of that taken care of today. For example, I will be heading down there later this morning to take care of some paperwork. Afterward, if I have time, I will be looking into getting my Washington license transferred to an Oklahoma license. I do not think that will be difficult. My only concern is finding the place. If all works out well, I might be getting paid as early as April 6th.
I should probably call Target and let them know to keep looking. I do not doubt they will find someone to take the slot I had been offered fairly quickly.
Needless to say, I am on cloud nine right now with how this week has gone. It definitely surpassed all expectations I had of it.
