An interview!

Mood: excited
Music: Dierks Bentley - Long Trip Alone

I received an interview request today.

The school in question:
City: Ilsan, a satellite city of Seoul, pop. ~500,000 (Wikipedia, Galbijim)
Type: hagwon (private), kindergarten/elementary
Starting date: July 25
Monthly salary: 2.2m won/~$1750 USD (at today's exchange rate)
Hours: 10:00-19:00
Housing supplied

Since I received the interview request, I've been obsessively researching Ilsan and the hogwan in question. While it is a franchise of hogwans and the quality of each school varies, this specific school looks pretty legit. Based on what I've read, a school only interviews the candidates they are most interested in hiring.

Needless to say, I am excited. And nervous. God, I hate phone interviews. Hopefully I won't be called while I'm out running...

Oh, and my transcripts arrived. When ordering them I checked a button that would have them sent when my diploma was posted, so I'm assuming my diploma is also on its way. Good - the sooner I get my documents together, the sooner I can send them out and be on my way.

This is great! Any idea what day the interview will be? No worries - you will rock it, friend! E>

P.S. About my Peace Corps essays - I had a couple friends who were sitting with me edit them and just went ahead and submitted my application. It's not that I didn't want your editing, but I wanted to get the ball rolling and didn't want to wait even a night longer! Thank you for being willing to read, though!

I just got an email response from the school - my interview will be tonight (Wednesday), 11pm. hahaha. Thank you for the confidence! E>

Don't worry about it! I totally understand! I wouldn't want to wait myself, haha. Did you list where you wanted to go? Proably somewhere French-speaking, oui?

Also: I have a wordpress account for my travails in Korea - atmatm.wordpress.com. It might be easier for you just to go there. (Although I'll still be posting here, esp. about parts of my life I wouldn't want my grandmother to read, hahaha.)
