Interview Results

Well, the interview with Battelle is over.  I think I did pretty well, although it wasn’t set up like how I expected.  I was interviewed by four people, but instead of all asking me questions one at a time, they interviewed me one by one.  They really encouraged me to ask questions; I just hope I asked enough.  What’s really nice is I only stammered once, and that was when I was asked a totally unexpected question.  So I’m pleased with myself and hoping for the best.

Interview Today

My interview with Battelle is today at 2.  I’ll let you know how it went later.

400 Million Fewer Animals Killed in the US in 2014

Food Revolution Cow

Great news for the meatless and animal rights movements!  According to this Food Revolution Network article, people in developed  countries are eating less meat, and it’s already starting to show.  In 2014, 400 million fewer animals were subjected to industrial farming and slaughter.

I like meat, but I’ m trying to do my part for these animals and for the environment.  When I was in Wooster for the past two years, I bought very little meat, and what I did buy was from local sources.  I also found out last night that I can’t eat a huge steak (conventionally-raised beef) without feeling nauseous, though I’m not sure if that’s due to my feelings about factory farming or to a smaller appetite from dieting.

Whatever the reason, here’s hoping I can keep it up.

Upcoming Job Interview

I have an interview with Battelle on September 16.  I’m really excited about it and really looking forward to it, especially since I’ve applied to a lot of positions at Battelle before and not going interviews.  Fortunately, I had a very helpful recruiter this time.  I’m so grateful to her.

The position is a Quality Assurance laboratory job.  I’ll be spending time between now and then preparing myself for the big event.

Wish me lucky, or pray for me, whichever you prefer.
