Hurray! Just got a call from California! I know, it’s only 7:30 in the morning here in Shanghai, but who cares, SOMEONE is interested in my job application! I applied for a part-time grant writer position at a domestic violence shelter in San Mateo… The position is open immediately, but the director said she didn’t want to rule me out just because I wasn’t yet in town. So, we’re going to arrange a phone interview. What a relief. I’ve gone weeks now without any positive response, so hopefully this is just the beginning.
