When your boyfriend says he has some news for you that you can use, it's best to listen. Bill came over straight from work, all excited. I was on pins and needles waiting to hear the news. Maybe he got a promotion.
But it wasn't that at all.
"There's a place in our building that's hiring. Do you remember Burt's Bulb and Seed LLC? They have their corporate office on the top floor."
I inhaled sharply. "Well, not really. I didn't know all the companies in the building."
"Well, I know Burt because I did some freelance work for him a while back. He owes me a favor, so I got you an interview."
"Really? What's the job for?"
I had a feeling of nervousness overcome me. I didn't really want to go back to working customer service.
"It's nothing fancy -- it's an executive assistant -- but it would be enough to pay the bills until you finish school and get a job somewhere else."
An executive assistant. Hum. I stood a little straighter. A job with some responsibility to it. But would I be able to handle it?
"When is the interview?"
"A week from tomorrow. I'll help you get prepared so you're not too nervous."
