Opportunities Abound!

What's better than one interesting job prospect in the travel industry? TWO interesting job prospects in the travel industry!!

Out of the blue, Clipper Cruise Line called me a couple days ago about a résumé I gave them back in June (I had interviewed with them even earlier than that, back in January, for another position). I returned the call, and as a result, I will be making a visit to their office on Monday... wish me luck! (Good thing Monday is a business dress day at my office, so that I don't look strange coming to work in interview clothes!)

I am also still pursuing the other position that my teacher told us about... sent my résumé off to them today. So we'll see what happens!! Exciting times... :)

Can I just say again how excited and thrilled I am for you??? Dude, if they make you an offer, TAKE IT!!! Has your teacher talked about pay ranges in travel? My impression is it might be lower...will that be okay for you? I have a feeling that you wouldn't mind at this point, so long as it gets you into the field you want to be in and away from the place that has you divising resume drinking games!

Wow! I didn't know this at all! Why didn't you tell me???? What's the position your teacher told you about? I can't believe Clipper called. SO cool. Must keep me/us informed!

Kristen - I can't believe they called either! It was so out of the blue. :) And the job my teacher told us about is a leisure travel agent at a small company in Chesterfield. He knows the guy that owns the place and apparently the guy had said, "hey, hook me up with some of your students, I got an entry-level position open here." Or something like that. So we'll see. I have an inkling that the Clipper job would pay more, but I could be wrong...

Tracie - It's a running joke around here... that if we did a shot every time we wrote phrases like "detail-oriented" and "excellent communication skills" on resumes, we'd be totally sloshed. :)
