In a week and or two. I contacted Bellevue PD on Thursday to find out how they were going with the search, and what kind of time frame they were looking at for hiring. Turns out they were making final decisions yesterday. Letters will be mailed out, starting tomorrow, letting candidates know if they are invited for an interview or if their applications are being tabled. It goes without saying, I’m really hoping my letter contains an interview date. As far as I know, none of my references have been contacted, which I’ve found to be a cause to worry. I can only hope they wait to do the background checks until after interviews.
I have to admit, I’m really nervous. “What if” has been plaguing me the last two weeks. If this doesn’t pan out on this try, I don’t have a lot of back-up plan in my pocket. I love what I’m doing now, but I don’t think it’s fiscally viable in the long term. I’m so sure that this is what God has for me. If my letter doesn’t have awesomeness in it, what does that mean? Does it mean I just completely read the situation wrong? Does it simply mean (even more) waiting? Will my faith be enough for such a let down? I can only hope it will be.
Really, everything would be much easier if it had good news. Then I get to start stressing about the interview, etc. The background check shouldn’t be a problem. I’ve been a good boy, and anyone they talk to should be able to back that up fairly easily. I don’t have any embarrassing or horrible stuff on the Internet that should cause anyone any concern. My Myspace page doesn’t tell anyone anything other than that I love awesome music. Oh well, that’s a bridge we’ll have to cross when we come to it.
