Vancouver, BC

Place 72 – Day 427: Vancouver, BC – A New Job!

Curtis’ Day

Curtis had a 1 on 1 in the morning and then did some more project work but mostly tickets throughout the day.

Curtis did have a meeting right before lunch with the account manager from Zoom who was mostly try to see him stuff, but was also useful to ask questions to.

When it came to the afternoon, Curtis had some more tickets to do and then someone needed some urgent help, so he jumped on a video call with them to get their issue sorted.

Kim’s Day

Kim started her day by getting out and picking up a coffee for Curtis and herself. Her third and final interview today and wanted to get out and go for a short walk beforehand, to stretch her legs and het a bit of fresh air.

When she got back Kim drank her coffee while she got ready and prepared for the interview. She sat down, double checked her questions, the job description and the companies LinkedIn page.

Kim joined the call and after 5 minutes of waiting received and email asking if she was joining! She responded that she was there and looking at ‘waiting to be let in’, they then resent the link and the same thing happened, so after a couple of tries they sent over a new link and the interview went ahead. It was such an interesting discussion and it was with the CEO and Founder of the company. It was wonderful to talk to someone who is so passionate about the project and what they would like to achieve. During the interview the role and company sounded even more perfect for Kim! The community involvement and mindset is something Kim has always wanted to do and be a part of.

After the interview Kim stayed on the call to discuss a few things with one of the people from the other two interviews and it was lovely to have a less formal chat and go over the next steps.

Kim was then going over the interview with Curtis and saying how she think it went well when she received a meeting invite and email asking if she could jump back on the call to discuss one more thing. Kim was then asked a couple of questions and then was offered the job! She said yes on the spot, it was a no brainer as Kim is extremely excited and looking forward to this opportunity. After the call Kim told Curtis, who was very happy, and then they had lunch!

After lunch Kim dropped off a bit of the bed that they sold last week to the people who bought it. So that was a nice walk and s great way for Kim to walk off some of the energy.

Evening

We played some games and then got hungry, so we had a pretty early dinner.

Kim made Jamaican jerk chicken with coconut rice…This was SO delicious!

We ate that and watched a bit of TV and then watched the Great British Bake Off.

We watched some other TV and played some more games in the evening.


This Time Last Year!
