Okay, so the question not answered in the video is No, I did not get the job. It may have been because of the phone, but then again...
I just don't think so. For the record for any future potential employers coming by the blog, I LOVE - huh...
What too much?
Okay, Talking on the phone for business and talking to your Uncle whom you love dearly, (in case he's reading) but does not know how to talk on the phone and / or hang up are completely separate issues. Business very often needs to be face to face or voice to voice if you will, and I am absolutely okay with that interaction.
Oh, and here's the incriminating post in case you were curious.
Alright, before I call it a day and because I am talking about jobs I want to talk about something I have going on tomorrow that is pretty cool.
I am a member of the Communications and Satisfaction team for Tech Connect Ohio. This is a terrific program put together by Dan Harris with the assistance of Rocky VanBrimmer in only about 4 weeks I might add.
From the website: In an effort to support these, (Central Ohio technology driven) companies and advance Ohio' s tech initiatives, promote the jobs available and help experienced tech professionals, recent graduates, and interns find and secure these important positions TechConnect Ohio was created.
So really, how cool is that?
I received a message last night that I have missed somebody and folks, I hate that.
So, let's fix it right...
Let me tell you about Jodi Hoye. Jodi is the one responsible for recruiting, communicating, orchestrating and caring for ALL the sponsors who agreed to sign-up and attend this event. She managed this entire event from start to finish and is a key to this events success going forward. In fact, I've been told this would not have happened with out Jodi Hoye's involvement, and how I missed that is completely beyond me.
Jodi's named responsibility was Sponsorship and Business Development. She did much, much more. Without question, Jodi was "instrumental" to the program's success, and Jodi if you're reading... I am very sorry.
Major bonus that I get to be on that team!
I believe the term is SCORE!
Ahem, sorry... Yes, I am a little excited.
