Almost done = interview for dream job.
Well I'm net keeping my hopes up, but I do have my fingers crossed.
I began this trip to finish my degree in the hopes that it will lead to a position managing an EMS agency. A Batchelors is expected and a Masters typically preferred for such positions. I recently applied for a Directors position and put on my resume that I was attending COSC expecting to graduate next month...I half expected to not make the cut since i don't technically qualify based on Education (or lack thereof). But this AM I got the call that I am one of nine candidates to be interviewed for the job!
Far from a job offer, but I feel like just pursuing the degree has helped me get my feet in the door. Opportunity couldn't come at a better time....my existing employer will cease operations 90 days and I will be unemployed. I'm gonna hope and pray hard that something good comes of this.
Just thought I would share....Reb
