It's going OK. (I would say good but I'm superstitious!)

Even in this weak Job market, I seem to be finding legitimate opportunities (One's I actually get interviewed for) at the rate of about one a week. The problem is that, at this level of job, the process takes a long time (As an example, I found out about a particular opportunity on April 10th, after 4 phone interviews with a Retained recruiter, one face to face interview, a battery of psychological tests and a check with all my refrences, I am finally meeting the CEO and the Board naxt week. Even at that, they are looking at 3 candidates, all of which can probably do a great job.) So the solution is to just keep generating leads & keep the pipeline full. I have 4 different jobs in various stages with 2 new one's just starting. So I'm cautiously optimistic. As someone said, it only takes one.

Probably more than you wanted to know ;-).
I really do appreciate you asking.


PS I wouldn't turn away any prayers at this point.
good luck!!weiwentg

In situations where I really want/need something, I try to prepare for the worst, but hope for the best. That way, I'm usually pleasantly surprised.

It sounds like it's going as expected for you (ie: NEVER FAST ENOUGH!). Keep on, keepin' on.
