I've been applying for jobs for a while now. I have been looking for any kind of entry level job in architecture/engineering or something related. Most have been for AutoCAD positions, some for other various stuff. I hated serving food, and i'm not sure if it was a combination of me having no interest at all in the job or the fact that all my employers were shitty, but i couldn't stand to stay at a restaurant for more than 6-8 months before i had to get the hell out of there. It had nothing to do with my career and i fuckin hated being treated like shit by customers for shitty min wage and their crappy ass tips. So i finally got around to getting my AutoCAD classes out of the way last semester and this one, so i have been applying for positions. I have had more than a few interviews and had no luck. I did end up getting a 2nd interview at a construction company. The interview was for this morning at 830. Well yesterday was my Bday so me and the GF went out to dinner and a late movie. I came home and got my clothes ready for this morning, but when i crashed out, i forgot to take my phone off vibrate from the theater. So i ended up waking up at 9, haha. I called and said that i thought it was at 930, not 830, so they rescheduled for 2pm. I walked into the interview thinking i had blown my chance at the job. They asked me some more in depth questions about how i did stuff in Acad, and about school, my schedule, stuff like that. Then basically the guys that were interviewing me said thats it, and they kind of talked a little between them, and said i was hired. I guess there were a few others who had been in throughout the day for their 2nd interview also, some with a lot more qualifications than me, and some with a lot less. So i start on monday. 12 bucks an hour, not a lot at all, but i get a review every 90 days, and i will be 1 of only 2 people in the office that can do 3D rendering, so i'm sure i will be able to ask for a decent bump in pay. They are totally working around my school schedule, which is 4 classes this semster, 14 units. And the best part is that they are going to help pay for school, up to 4 thousand a year. So yea, its a pretty good job for me. Its my first "real" job, and i'm stoked that its one that leads straight into my career path.
