Is this a good sign?

There's a job that opened up here where I work, and I applied for it. (I'm a temp right now; this is an opening for a permanent job.) My interview just finished a few minutes ago, and I think I did pretty well.

The last question asked of me was, "Why should I hire you?"

My answer: "Because I'm awesome."

The simplest answers are the best!!

Did you say "because I'm awesome" with a playful smile or a nasty smirk? I suppose that would make a big difference... :-)

It was definitely said with a playful smile. The interview was full of humor; I already know, and have worked with, the people who talked to me, so I knew that I was able to relax and be funny.

I think that there are still more interviews, I think five total. I don't know when I'll hear, but as I am already working in the same office, I'll know soon enough.

with your personality you should definitely get it. i don't even know what the job is but with all the stretching you do in the morning, it's bound to pay off at some point.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Update:

I didn't get the permanent job, but I will be filling the open contract position vacated by the person who did get the permanent job.

The two positions are actually the same, but one is permanent. The reason the other person had the edge was that she's already been doing that job, so she's got the experience.

So it's still great news: although I won't be on the payroll (yet), nor will I be receiving any benefits (yet), I will be in line for the next available open position; and I'll be able to approach it with acquired experience, which will make the transition and training much easier than if I got the job today.

So hooray!

(The announcement hasn't formally been made, but I think I'm safe by posting it here.)

And by the way, that "Because I'm awesome" line worked like gangbusters....
