Testing the Waters

After more than two years as a stay-at-home mom, I’ve been feeling the need to prove I still have marketable skills. Note that I didn’t say I want to get a job. What I really want is for someone to want to give me a job — it’s a validation thing. To that end, I’ve applied for a couple positions that look interesting, not really expecting anything. But then tonight I got a call about one of them, and now I’ve got a phone interview on Friday, and I don’t really know what to do. I wouldn’t actually take the job even if it was offered to me, so maybe the right thing to do is bow out. It’s enough for my ego that I got the interview. I’ll have to ponder this for a bit.
