It had to happen

I got a call yesterday asking if I could come in today to interview for a Reporting Analyst position with a company that I had my sights set on working at for a while now. It seems that they are looking to hire immediately, so if all goes well, I could be starting back to work on Monday.

So as I am getting ready for the interview, I decided to trim my goatee and mustache a bit. Of course, me being me, I screwed up the mustache to the point where it had to go. so the goatee went as well. luckily it'll grow back.. I just wont be out and about for the next few days until some of it grows back.

Oh well, off to the interview.

The Interview

The interview went well. I ended up interviewing with 3 people at once. Two were managers that I'd be reporting to and the other was the person I was replacing. They are wanting some one who has a background using Access, which I do, and someone with a background in finance/accounting, which I do. They want someone familiar with Peoplesoft, I am familiar with SAP. So we shall see. They said that I would find out tomorrow sometime.

I asked the person I would be replacing to explain his normal every day activities. Surprisingly, it wasnt that much different than what I did with Wyndham. The major difference is that he uses SQL more than I did, so I would need to learn that. That also may be what keeps me from getting the job. I can do queries in Access to pull the data, I am not familiar with all of the SQL language behind it all. None of them seemed too concerned that I wasnt really familiar with PeopleSoft. I explained that I seem to pick things up pretty quickly and if I didnt know something, I know there are resources out there to help me learn it quick.

Keeping my fingers crossed
