    I hope this is going to go somewhere! I got a call today from BD wanting to schedule a phone interview with me on Monday with thier Engineering department head, Head Electrical guy and Human Resources. I have been going stir-crazy since I started my leave. I'm just thankful I am still getting a paycheck at the moment. It sucks after 21 years of steady pay all of a sudden not knowing what will happen next. I don't know how you guys that have been unemployed for any time can handle it. I just hope I can "wow" them into thinking I am "the guy" they need. They have 2 positions open, so I hope I can get one.

    good luck Brother...Ive hired folks on phone interviews when I thought it was crazy to not "see" the person and it worked out better than could be hoped for.

    That's exciting. Enjoy your weekend, don't stress, and let 'em know you're the ONE when the call comes. Upbeat with a calm confidence. Let it flow bro....

    Thanks guys. I'm just glad they wanted to set a time up instead for doing it right then. I will have all weekend to go over all my old EPRs, job descriptions and such, and have it all layed out in front of me for the call. May even look up phone interview questions as well to have something possibly ready to roll for answers.

    Cool, Camden is a great town. I hear there is a plant up there that does stain resistant teatments that is good to work for too. If BD don't work out, I may look around there.

    When I went in for me interview after a battery of skills test, I said a very honest prayer, stating that I need confidence and the right things to say...It seems that my tests went really well and the interviewer asked some questions that could have two right answers, but he was looking for his answer based on his values...He really liked me and that was the beginning of my long 25yr carreer with Florida Power and Light Company. There were 1500 applicants and the hired 18 for that training group! What a job, what a career..sadly my brain injury ended it after all those years.

    I'm convinced in the initial interview, my faith and a solid prayer got me in the door. Without going into depth, there was more to it, but I'll leave it at that...Good luck, I'll say a prayer for you, I'm convinced it works!

    Thanks brother!

    I'm just glad I know 5 other guys I have worked with in the past that work there too. I already dropped one name in the initial call and the lady was all excited I knew that guy.
