Okay, I know you’re waiting with baited breath to hear the outcome of my last post. (You are waiting, right?) Well… I didn’t get picked to interview for that particular position in Houston, but there is a very big upside in not getting picked as a candidate for that particular position…

…and the upside is that there is another position at that same university that posted at the time the Associate Dean called me about the first position, and I am far more interested in pursuing this second position. However, I didn’t want to apply for it until I heard about my chances for the first position. While I have twenty years of experience in student services/academic advising for the first position, I am so ready to do something different while remaining in a higher education environment. And, this second position is right down my “creative” alley, so to speak. You see, my first love has always been art/architecture, photography, writing, and creative endeavors as well as working with a wide variety of people and managing projects; and this second job has all of that. Plus, my bachelor’s degree is in art and design which is a major plus as a potential candidate. Is that cool, or what?

The irony in all of this is that over three years ago when I moved to Houston for the job that has left me unemployed for over two and a half years now, I was ecstatic to be offered that particular position as it was in a very creative higher education environment. And, I’m sure I’d still be employed there if it wasn’t for the unfortunate set of circumstances with my former boss. However, now that this new opportunity at another university in Houston has opened up, I applied for it as soon as I heard that I wasn’t being considered for the first position.

So, while I’m once again in “wait” mode, I am so excited about the possibility of this new position where I would be able to utilize my creative abilities as well as my many years of experience in higher education to the benefit of this particular university, and its students, faculty, administration, and the surrounding community; and, I’m thrilled for another opportunity to return to Houston. So, I’m going to extend the verse that I quoted on my last post to this one:

“But those who wait on the LORD 
      Shall renew their strength; 
      They shall mount up with wings like eagles, 
      They shall run and not be weary, 
      They shall walk and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)

Indeed, good things come to those who wait.

UPDATE 12-23-11: Wasn’t considered for this job, either, so I’m STILL waiting!!!  I should be VERY strong by the time this waiting period is over!!!
