I thought this would be easier than answering the phone or e-mails over and over this evening, so I'll give you all the scoop at once.
I feel like I knocked the JFS interview out of the park this afternoon. I talked to four upper management folks at the the agency - all very delightful. We talked for an hour and I feel like I answered all of their questions spot-on and finished up with a real sense of accomplishment...
Until we got to the hours and salary portion of the show. I was originally told that the position would be close to 30 hours/week. Totally doable at the pay they are offering. This afternoon, the gal who would be my supervisor told me she misspoke and it is a static 20 hours a week. Not so doable.
I would so rock this position. I know I could be a phenomenal volunteer coordinator. i would love going to work every day (or on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, since I would be able to set my own hours). Sadly, I just don't think we can make it work financially.
So, I have to call the wonderful woman who is my would-be supervisor and tell her the news tomorrow.
I know another opportunity will come along. I just have to take a quick minute to mourn this loss and move on.
Just wanted to let everyone know. If you know anyone looking for an excellent volunteer coordinator - give me a call!
