WooHOO!

I just got the call from Magic Mouse Toys, and I'll be starting there on July 16th.

It will be a full-time position, doing whatever it is they want me to do (because I know that's what retail needs most). The initial schedule will be Mon - Wed, Fri, Sat, and I am really REALLY looking forward to this.

And Amy, she specifically mentioned how the arrival of my Thank You card prompted her to pick up the phone and call. Apparently they had indeed been impressed enough at the interview to decide then and there to hire me, but wanted to talk it over, and then something came up, and then another thing came up, and more days yet may have passed before the she found the time to call back. So - funny thank you cards for the win.

YAY!

Congratulations on nailing the interview and the success of your thank you card in prompting the call they weren't getting around to making.

Enjoy. :-)

Excellent! And thank you for the story of the thank-you card. I'm a big believer in thank-yous, though I'm not always as good at delivering them as the better version of me would be.

Excellent. They would have been crazy not to hire you.

There has been such a long parade of places that looked like a great match and then picked someone else that I've lost any ability to guess how things will work out.

Now, to have it *actually* work out - and still be there a year from now.

Wonderful news, so happy to hear it. I take it this is the kind of place where you will be happier (long term) than, say, any of the other recent jobs? I hope so. Also glad to know that the thank-you note nudged them in the proper direction.
Much love, Amy

BTW, it looks like this will be a very convenient place (all things considered) for your commute - or, at least, It Could Be Worse. That must be a relief.

OTOH, their website is, umm, dark. Did not appeal to me (or my inner child) at all. I hope that eventually it will brighten up.

Both dark and lacking most of the things i would think would help spur visits and sales.

But for once in my life, I'll try not to go in with a "here, let me fix that for you" attitude. That can wait for at least a month. OK, maybe a few weeks.
