I did not get the job - again

Which is the bad news. The good news is that my coworker is being considered for a new position that they may have available. That's good news for 2 reasons. 1 - someone is finally getting out so I have hope. 2 - That's one less person that I have to compete with.

In all honesty, my coworker is very capable and qualified so this shouldn't be a surprise. I'll be thrilled if she gets another job. I will be glad when it's finally my turn though.

I'm switching banks again

You would think I have a ton of money the way I keep switching banks every year. But I haven't had a bank that was willing to value me as a customer no matter how much money I have (or don't have as in my case). I do belong to a credit union but they don't offer their own credit cards which is something I want to get in the future. So I'm looking at some of the big national banks and they all rub me the wrong way.

I would prefer to have most of my money at 1 or 2 institutions but it's not working out that way.

I know just what to buy with my new job money

If I get the job that is. I still haven't heard and I don't know if that's a good thing or not. All I can do is sit and wait until they make a decision. But once I do get some extra money I'm going to buy gold bullion to round my portfolio out. There's a organization called the United States Gold Bureau that makes it really easy to buy gold in both coin and ingot form. That way I can keep gold myself at home or in my safe deposit box. However if I buy a large amount of gold, they can arrange for my gold to be held at a independent bank or depository.

Now I just have to wait until I get a new job and some extra money.

I need to set up some mock interviews

I've interviewed quite a few times but I haven't got the jobs. I'm waiting to hear about 1 exciting opportunity this time. It's a natural progression from some of the jobs that I've had in the past. I don't know how I did on the interview though. I thought it went well but I always think that.

Now one of my friends is on a quest to help me with my interview skills. I think that will really help.
