So, the job interview went well this morning.  The lady I met with, the office manager, was very nice, and seemed impressed with me.  I think she really liked that, when she asked about what I like to do in my free time, one of the things I told her about was beta reading/editing for people.  Spelling/grammar is one of her pet peeves, and since it's a law office stuff like that is very important.  Also, it turns out that one of the partners has actually published some fiction books, which is pretty cool.

The job description sounds pretty good, and I was really glad to hear that they tend to hire their clerical people for paralegal jobs after a few years, which is what I really want.  Pay and benefits are pretty decent, and the hours are good, too.  I should hear from her on Monday if she thinks I should meet with the attorneys for a second interview, so continue crossing your fingers!

Well, I don't want to jinx anything, but I've (finally) got a job interview tomorrow.  It's just a clerical position, but it's in a law firm, and it would give me a chance to get my foot in that particular door, maybe even move up in the firm. 

In even more (potentially) exciting job news, I met a nice lady Saturday when I was volunteering and it turns out she is a paralegal.  We got to talking about jobs, and she mentioned that her firm might have an opening for a paralegal in the new year, and she would definitely put my name in the hat if that happened.  So, exciting.

Well, I went to a job fair hosted by my alma mater this morning; I only had two companies that I could even think about looking at, and one of them didn't show up.  The other was pretty much a waste of time, since the advice amounted to, "You can apply online", which I already knew.  Plus, my navy shoes are apparently the work of evil, since, in the probably 45 minutes I wore them (which included the drive to and from school), they managed to rub one toe raw and give me a blister on another.  Sigh.

On the other hand, we're doing well in the AfterElton slash tourney against Dean/Castiel, so that is cool.

Taken from several of you on my flist, a meme:

Applied for another job today; this one's a legal assistant in the prosecutor's office in the next county over.  Of course, that's a lot less than what I trained to do as a paralegal, but it would be a full-time job with benefits and a decent salary, so who cares?  Also, I have to actually get the job before any of that matters.  ::sigh::  Dad says big brother didn't get the pie-in-the-sky job he wanted, but instead got the job he'd been told wasn't available and is much better than the job he didn't get.  Dad then was like, so, that just goes to show the job market's improving, and I'm like, Dad, that's in England.

I HAVE A JOB!!!! I'm not entirely sure when I start, because the store isn't finished yet, but it pays well, and the hours are good. Plus, it's close to home, and it's at a clothing store, where I will get 25% employee discount. And my parents are gone until tomorrow night. Ah, life is decent.

ETA: Yeah, I really enjoy my job most of the time, but I'm not looking forward to being there at ten am when I haven't gone to bed yet.
