Just wanted to touch base with you. I have heard very positive feedback from [Company Initials] regarding your interview. They are looking to hopefully make a decision by the end of the week. I will be in touch as soon as I have more information.
The good news is that they gave her the positive feedback BEFORE the Fabulous Hand-made Thank You cards that I sent on Friday.
This one is for the first guy I interviewed with. Content/Concept: 'I would love to continue the conversation.'
For the nice California-man. Concept: 'I'd love to work among such able craftsmen.'
For Cynical Man of the famous "What scares you?" line of questions. Concept: 'I would love to join such strategic thinkers.'
What? What's the job, you ask? Here's Earnest Man's answer when I asked what they were looking for:
"Well, there are a lot of great designers out there. We know that, our clients know that. In many ways we're forging new design territory. We're more than just trade show or event designers. Instead of our clients coming to us to say, 'here's what we want', we're going to them to say, 'this is what you should do'. We need someone who can think strategically, who can design where nothing exists, who can write phantom text and then design around it. Someone who can interact directly with clients with persuasive pitches, who can work with a team but then run with it individually."
I continued with another well-articulated, scinillating question while inside I was jumping up and down, "It's me!! Pick ME!"
