It went well, I think.

I had to fill out a multi-page application (this was the first time I had to fill out an application in I don't know how long - and this includes the job interview last fall. I had a one page thing for the cooking school.) This meant frantic phone calls for references (what's so and so's address? Do you have such and such's phone number?), and my handwriting is BAD, but I got there way early, which helped.

Once I spoke to Frimmy - well, as usual, I covered my nerves with smiles. We talked food (they want simple,wholesome, nutritious food that teen-age boys will eat and fill up on. I can do that. It's how I cook at home anyway.) It's for two group homes, both with teen-age boys. One boy is Type I diabetic - I can handle that, no problem. I made sure they knew I was Type II. I'd be making dinner to serve later, which works well for me.

They also asked if I could do a weekly hour long cooking class. Oh, yes. Not a problem. (Yay, teaching background!)

Then I had to come up with a sample menu. I did three - meat, dairy and Shabbos.

And they want me for a second interview with the director of the two group homes. That sounds very promising (not counting my jobs until they're hatched.)


That does sound like an excellent first interview!

Let's hope. :)

w00t! how exciting! I am (to reference Noel Streatfield) holding my thumbs for you.

Thank you!


That sounds like a really good interview, with a lot of applicable questions instead of theory - then again, I'm in academia where they want theory and hope to extrapolate action from there. *sigh* *goes back to being happy for you* I hope you get this job; it sounds perfect for you.

Re: Excellent!

I hope so! Thank you!

Sounds promising - continued hoping for you.

Thank you!

break an egg!

jonbaker shouted that at me as I left for it. :)

Good luck with the second interview!

Thank you!

will keep my fingers crossed for you!

Hello, new mommy.

Use those fingers to take care of that baby. :) But, thank you!

I'm glad it went well, and best of luck with the second interview!

May the 2nd interview go as well as the first.

That sounds really promising. I hope you get it!

Hooray and good luck!

I was at a meeting today with several people from the DMA- the Dietary Managers Association. http://www.dmaonline.org/index.php

They have a certification/licensing exam exactly for people who do things like cook for group homes, or nursing homes.

It sounded exactly appropriate for the job you are looking for- be able to go in with the certification, plus the ability to cook, plus the ability to do it all kosher?

You are in a good position for employement.

Sounds like it's right up your street. I hope you get it.
