The final step
It hit me near the end of the interview when he said it would be three or four weeks till I would know for sure--It is now out of my hands...if it ever was in the first place. Yes, my interview for an internship at the Lynden Tribune was today and it went very well. There is one other applicant. He's way more qualified. He's done freelance work for several Washington newspaper and he was The Western Front editor last quarter. Cal (from the Tribune) said the other applicant hadn't committed to the Tribune, nor they to him. Also the Tribune is the kind of newspaper that values local writers. Cal said he gives a certain amount of preference to local applicants. Practically speaking, people who have been in Lynden for a long time have an edge anyway when it comes to doing the job.
I'm very encouraged.
