I had a job interview today. It was for a CPA running a good-sized firm; he basically does for accounting what Alpha Geek does for IT, providing services for businesses too small to have their own accounting department. The job I’d be doing would be basic transactions and bank reconciliations, and reports of same.
Bonus: While I was in the lobby waiting (about fifteen minutes—I’m always early to job interviews), I was the only one there not speaking Spanish. It appears he has a lot of Hispanic clients, the CPA and most of his staff appear to be bilingual, and all the signs in the office had both English and Spanish. So if I worked there I’d have people to practice my fledgling Spanish on. Which I find exciting.
I think the interview went well. He asked me some questions, told me about the job, I asked a few questions, he showed me around, and by the end of it we were both talking as if I were an employee. When I left he was trying to decide if I should start before or after he leaves on vacation, and said he would talk to another lady to see if she’d have time to train me if he weren’t there. I’m hesitant to get my hopes up, but it sounds promising.
I also have another interview on Tuesday. When it rains, it pours, eh?
