A "Big-Person" Job Interview for Nerdy April

Happy Saturday Everyone!

I hope you like the new banner at the top of the blog...yes, I actually carved that into a pumpkin with my own two little hands! A bunch of us nerds got together last night for a pumpkin carving extravaganza! (Of course, being the nerds we are this included a Darth Vader pumpkin and such!)

Lately life has been a bit crazy, unexpected and exciting. Take yesterday for instance...I received a phone call at 6:30am. And guess who it was? No, not Chris (haha), it was a man from the Army Flight Test Directorate. I had spoken with him the day before and he said he would like to set up an interview with me, although he said it would probably be sometime early next week.

AFTD Guy: "Hi April, sorry for the early phone call, but the stars are aligning and we would like to interview you today at noon your time. Would you be available?"

Me: "Yes! Of course!"

So, I am proud to say yesterday was my first "big-person" job interview and I think it went swell. I was a little nervous being interviewed by about six guys on a telecon, but all in all I think I gave it my best shot.
