Now for a little more info...
A couple of weeks ago I got an e-mail from a friend who I went to UofI with and who is an attorney (graduated from a Chicago law school last year). His boss's husband, who is an attorney but no longer practicing, was looking to hire a recent law school grad, preferably with a background in finance, for a temporary position. They were preferably looking for someone with a finance background.
He knew nothing else about the position other than the guy is really nice, if you're not an idiot they can teach you what you need to know, and he thought it would be well-compensated.
Despite the fact that the only background I have in finance is that I really really like money, I sent my resume to the guy. And today I got an e-mail back that they want to interview me!
Of course the friend who sent me the e-mail about the job is the ex-boyfriend (very recent breakup) of a good friend and sorority sister (and blog reader! Hey!). So I e-mailed her yesterday afternoon:
"So I have an interview Tuesday for a position that [ex-boyfriend] sent me an email about.
I promise to go back to hating him after that though. :)"
"Hahaha no worries, loyalties are fluid in this job market!!
I'd take a job recommendation from Osama Bin Ladin if I were you. GOOD LUCK!!"
Now that is a good friend.
So now I'm ready for the most crucial part of interview prep... the perfect outfit! Obviously I'll keep ya'll posted on what I decide to wear. Oh, and how the interview goes. Of course.
