Now we wait
Okay, seriously this time. I miss writing to no one too much to stop posting on The Empire Project.
In Decemeber I finished up my applications to the Page Program. Hitting send on that file felt impossible. I wanted to make sure everything was right, and every proofread of a resume or cover letter had me second guessing the way I’d written one thing or another. But I did eventually hit send. Then the waiting game began.
Two weeks later I received an email saying I’d been selected for a phone interview. It was on January 6th. The questions had meaning, and I felt like the interviewer was actually engaged with what I was saying. I feel like I gave the best answers I could give. But I haven’t lost sight of the fact that 7,000 people apply for this program every year and NBC Universal accepts 60. I’m not great at math, but I have the odds pretty well figured out on this one.
Regardless, they said they’d let me know if I am selected to move on to the final phase, which calls for a panel interview back in NYC. They said I could hope to hear from them within the next month. Now, every email or unknown number that comes to my phone has me holding my breath.
Cross your fingers.
