this morning i did a phone interview for the LA Times Metpro program. interview went well, i thought, but i didn’t want to get get too hopeful. i was conferenced in (that was a first!) to three other LAT staffers. i hate that feeling of knowing as soon as you hang up they’re going to talk about you. i can’t help but think they are making faces to each other while i’m talking and i’m none the wiser because i’m enthralled with the sound of my own voice and, oh yes, i can’t see them. anyway, when it was over they said they’d be in touch by the end of next week with their decisions. i came to terms with them not taking me, hoping that it meant some opportunity with AP after my summer internship was in the pipeline. i always feel like an idiot when things don’t work out. about four hours later they called to offer me the job.
i’m going to work for the LA Times…again so excited!
