As many of you know, my company is feeling the crunch of the housing market crisis, being that it is a Design Center for semi-custom premium homes, and, well, no one is buying million dollar houses at the moment.

Awhile ago I wrote how my coworker got laid off.

Well, I had this GUT feeling on Thursday that said, "you know, I should send out my resume." and stayed up until 3am sending it out.

Yesterday they let go 25% of our company. My department used to be 8 strong, and now there are two. I still have a job, for now.

In the midst of our office hitting this panic turmoil, I received 3 phone calls for interviews, I am very grateful for that. But of those 3 phone calls was one for a position i have been dreaming of forever- as an Exec Administrator / Proj Coordinator for the Principal Designer at an Architecture / Design Firm in San Francisco.

Their Principal designed two of SF's most prestigious restaurants, La Folie & Fleur de Lys (if any of you watched the first season of Top Chef- it was the restaurant of their first challenge)

So I had a phone interview last night and they want to see me tomorrow!!!

i am going to go shop for an interview outfit- I am looking for something like this-

so wish me luck!!! i really want this, AND i don't know how long my job can keep me.


I really could have worn a garbage bag, he was so busy. He gave me basically 15 minutes to explain my qualifications, just bare bones... Good thing I don't stutter.

"Can you write business correspondences, do you know Autocad, Can you read construction plans, do you know your basic building codes, what were your studies in architecture and design... how much do you need to make?" (((lots and lots of scribbling and underlining all over my resume)))


I have no idea what that means.

UPDATE 1/7/08:


they let go of my entire department. I am now officially without a job.


now i really hope the interview went well!!!
