Your Life is in My Hands Now!

Your Life is in My Hands Now!

I had to interview people to replace me at my job. I've interviewed two,and I have one more to go. I don't know how head hunters do this job.This is so stressful. Knowing you have someone's life in your hands canbe very grating. I suppose some people like having that power. Not me, no sir!

I sat through the first interview talking with the person, agreeing with them, actually liking the individual. The interview ended after 45minutes and I walked them out. I realized, I like this person, this could be the one.

Then, I had to do a phone interview in 30 minutes for the next person. I liked them, the resume and the work they've done is awesome; the answers not so great. I found myself listening closer to this person's answers. I found that because it was a phone interview and not in person I paid attention to details I may have missed because I had a person sitting across from me.

My last interview is tomorrow afternoon - maybe. See, the last person can not come when I have time. So, they asked me to meet late in the day. Um, don't you know no one wants to stay that late in the day ON A FRIDAY? So, I'm going into this interview with that in my head already. That's not a good attitude to take.

I had a friend point this out perfectly when I told her I hate playing with people's lives. She said "That my dear is Karma with a Kapital K!!!" I replied to her "I've been playing in the Karma garden too much lately..." I know that I'm either making a positive thing happen for someone, and something negative for two.

Life is what it is...the one that deserves it to be bad. All I know is that the person that is meant to be here will be in the position I have now. I wish all of them the best of luck and know that their lives will be what they are meant to be.

Blessed Be!

An interesting take on the subject. In my job I sometimes interviewed people for any job below mine.... then suddenly I had to leave and now I'm on the other side of the table, and it's a scary place to be. I often wished I could employ everyone - I hope that someone feels that way with me!

Which one did you employ?
