Phoenix Rising

So, I got a call today while at work from the Phoenix Police asking me if I was still interested in the Forensic Scientist job I applied for back in October of 2005. I told them that, unfortunately, no, I was no longer interested. After getting off the phone and telling a coworker about it, we decided that my response should have been...

"Depends. I have six months of training under my belt now. If you can offer me well over what I'm currently making, I might be interested... but, I'll have to call you back. I'm in the middle of working a rape case."

Not that I'd leave. For several reasons:

1. I like my job and the fact that I get to do biological screening as a trace examiner. Not many departments are set up like that.
2. I really like the people I work with.
3. I totally don't want to move for many, many years. Moving's hard work. (Although, I'm still not completely unpacked, so moving now would probably be the best time.)
4. I don't know anyone in Phoenix. Not that I know many people here... but the ones I do know, I like a bunch, so it's a plus to the location.

You know, if they would have flown me out there, I would've gone on the interview for a nice little vacation. I've never been to Arizona.

Anyway, I found it humorous that 10 months later, I'm finally being called to set up an interview. And I thought KC took forever.

Oh! We're starting to interview for an opening in our department for a trace contract position. My boss told me today that if I wanted to, I could sit in on some of the interviews because he'd really like my opinion. How cool is that?

I mean, I think I had five people sitting in on my interview. It was intimidating as hell. I can't wait to do that to someone else! Woo!

Still love my job. In case you were wondering.

End Blog.

Sheesh! Not to mention Phoenix is like 115 degrees for half the year.
Reason enough to stay where it's only say, 98. Congrats that people still want you tho!
