Working Woman

Well, I had planned on updating earlier, but I suppose today works out fine because....

Today is the last day to enter the giveaway!

Today is also Thursday.

Thursdays are nice in my book because I don't have my internship, I just have housekeeping.

Days when I only work one job are few and far between, so when I get that small break of only working one job, it's pretty amazing.

Hopefully *fingers crossed* I'll only be working one job in just a short while.

I was at my internship yesterday and got asked to go to some client meetings with the boss lady.

It's a pretty big deal to go to meetings with her - I personally have yet to see another intern be asked to do so.

The meetings went great and it was a lot of fun meeting the people that you hear so much about and seeing the places where all of our hard work goes.

While we were in the car on the way to the meeting the boss lady turns and says to me,

"Thank you so much for getting those press releases written before this meeting. You're so fast at getting them done, it's awesome! If only you were here longer, I'd offer you a job."

What do you mean by "here longer"... ?

"Well someone had said that you're only going to be here for a year and then you're moving back home or something."

Actually, I'm here for at least the next four years while my boyfriend is in med school... so... if you're interested in having me work for the company, that's actually what I'm looking to do. I'd like for this internship to turn into a job.

"Oh, well what days are you available? Are you only available Monday, Wednesday, Friday?"

No, I'm just working that schedule because it's a part-time internship. If it was a paid position, I'd be available Monday - Friday, 9 - 5.

Then her phone rang.

Then we had meetings.

And more phone calls in between.

My plan of attack is to talk to her Friday morning when I go in to the office and say something like,

So, [boss lady], I was wondering if you'd like to talk further about the employment opportunity you mentioned on Wednesday? I'm really interested in working for the company as a full-time employee and think that I would be able to accomplish much more if I was working in that capacity. Is this something that you are still interested in? Should I talk about this further with [boss man]?

I suppose we'll go from there.

At least the biggest hurdle is over.

I was planning on bringing it up with boss man on Friday that I was interested in having my internship turn into a paid position - and now that boss lady brought it up, it's much less awkward to ask for a job now.

Oh, and the tattoos got finished on Sunday.

They're in the peeling stage right now, so not too pretty looking.

I'll post pictures in about a week when they're smooth and nice looking again. :)

I'll announce the winners of the giveaway tomorrow!

Until then....

A bientôt, lovelies.
