Measure progress in small amounts

I got a call yesterday from yet another staffing agency who saw my resume on line and wanted to set up a meeting with me for today, which we did. The office from which the recruiter called me was located in downtown Boston, though their corporate headquarters is in a town outside the city. So into downtown Boston I went this morning. Clearly it was a better experience this time, based on the fact that the last time I had to venture into the Hub of the Universe it was February, which meant windy and cold (9 degres Farenheit).

I can use the subway in Boston well enough, but once on the surface in a downtown area with traffic and skyscrapers and unmarked streets, we're talking a recipe for my getting lost. I only had minor problems in that regard this morning. Stuck in traffic on my way in I thought I'd be late for my appointment, but I was actually 15 minutes early. Good thing I had some reading material available while waiting.

While I was in my meeting, my cell phone vibrated and beeped, letting me know that I missed a call and had a new voice mail. Turns out the call was from the woman I met with at interview #3 on Wednesday. She wanted to talk to me to set up a second interview for next week with the hiring manager and the team lead for that department. Said meeting will take place next Friday at 14:00.

So while I haven't yet secured a job, prospects are beginning to look up. We'll measure the progress in small amounts and hope for the best.
