Grapes, vines and me? πŸ‡πŸ·πŸ˜Š

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧑

As I mention in my last post I have sent in my application to a new job, to a kind of job I have never done before. Something I have never been working with. And it is not just that it’s a new and different job, it’s also in an other country, even an other continent then I’m living in at the moment 😊. I sent my application in June, the 23. June to be correct, and I have used a bit of time to think this through, this application and if this job is something I really want to do and have, and if it’s a job for me πŸ‡. And I think it is 😊.

A tiny “touch ” of the idea of what kind of job I have sent my application to πŸ‡πŸ·πŸ˜Š

I did found this available position one day in March 2021 when I was reading in a online newspaper πŸ—ž. I was not looking after a new job at that point, this job just popped up with an article, because it is a quite a bit of an amazing job for the correct one (maybe me?) 😊🍷. And it was something with this job….I can’t actually explain what it was. The salary is one thing, but the fantastic experiences, all the new and exciting knowledge I can get in this “subject”, and a bit more then that too. A really new adventure in my life, that’s for sure 😊.

And maybe also because it is a job so totally different from what I have done before? Or maybe because I’m standing on a start line to a new area in my life, and feel so ready for some new, very new and different adventures in my life? I’m actually not sure. At the same time as I am.

I didn’t do very much else with the application at that time in March, then read the article and other information. But I couldn’t quite forget the job either. So I saved the link as my favourite and read through the different information, terms and conditions as well as private policy, and I have used a lots of thoughts around this job and application too 😊.

And in a strange way this job in it’s own way became a kind of dream job for me, a job I felt I at least needed to send in my application to, try to do my best to get. For one thing is for sure,- if I don’t try I will not get the job, even there’s very small chances that I will get the job if I try as well. But then I have at least tried 😊.

I have used closely 3 months to think about this, and also in the meantime try to create a good and creative video application. Because this company wanted the application in a video with a maximum time at 90 seconds ⏳. How to manage that? I wanted to say so much πŸ˜….

In one way I did manage it, in another I didn’t. It became 2 different videos, one for my application and one where I try to “show” the company that I understand the terms and conditions for the job, and that I’m maybe the person they are looking for to this job 😊. And I did send in both videos, – maybe not a good thing to do? Maybe a good thing to do? I don’t know,- but I know I want the company to get the best and most correct impression of me, who I’m and what I in a way stand for, at least in a working situation 😊.

And the job? I’m having a small “dissertation” to you on purpose before I’m coming to the point know πŸ˜…πŸ˜‰

I have sent my application to Murphy Goode Winery in California πŸ˜πŸ‡πŸ·.

My application- of course it could been so much bette and different- but it’s a limit for how many times I was going to take and re- take the video. And for every time I tried I remember something more I wanted to “press” into this 90 second πŸ˜…. It is what it is, – it is at least a very really me πŸ˜…. I should have fixed my hair a bit better to btw, and used an other light as well,- but ok 😊

I know my chances to get this job is not very big. There are different things that not “goes in my favour”. My age,- I’m 48 years old. The positive things around my age is that there will be no more babies, my kids are young adults and living their own life now, and they can even be a part of this job if all goes well 🧑. I also have different work experiences as well as education that can be very useful and positive in this job just because of my age. And of course I wanted to “sell” that in to in the video, but I didn’t had any time for that πŸ˜…. And me,- the person I’m can be a really “fresh” touch in California. A tiny Norwegian “viking” woman, nice, sweet, not worried for hard work and so on 😊.

I’m living in Europe, and at the moment I don’t have any work or living residence in USA. It’s not the easiest to get now at days either because of the corona- situation. And because I’m living in Europe I can’t be a guest at the Murphy Goode Tasting Lounge in Healdsburg, CA during this summer either. I think to be a guest there would both give them and me a better and more correctly impression,- for me about the job, for them about me.

And,- what can I actually about making fine wine? I just like the taste of good wine, and I don’t like the taste of a not to good wine 🍷😊. So….that one is blank, empty, – how to make some nice and tasty wine? I have no idea…. On the other hand, – this can be something positive too,- there’s a lots of opportunities to “fill me up with all kinds of knowledge” about wine and grapes and so on 😊🍷.

And of course it could also have been a “boomer” to try to “sell me in” with to different videos 😳. One application and one “presentation”.

I have of course have some conversation with my children about this job application, and they support me as well as my closest friends I have included in the process too 🧑.

My “presentation” that I do understand the terms and conditions for this job, – unfortunately I couldn’t film it all,- so it became some few and short videos with some of the terms and conditions 😊. And also trying to “show” the company in a way who am I 😊.

Can you imagine me walking between vines in California? πŸ‡πŸ˜ŠπŸ·

I can easily see myself in this job, at the farm, with the threes, in the wine basement, tasting wine and so on 🍷. I also know I would probably do a very good job too 😊. But what I really like about this job is that I will manage to create and see ( and taste as well) a product and result of the job I have done,- and that’s something I really like, – to actually see a product and result of my job, what I have been doing and working for, and hopefully make a lots of people happy as well 😊. Like when I’m knitting, teaching, painting or writing 😊. I see a product and a result- I like that a lot 😊. And maybe I “need” this job, but the job needs me a bit as well? 😊

Like I mention,- I know my possibility to getting this job very low, but if I haven’t tried at all, it wouldn’t be any possibility at all either. At least now it’s more then zero possibility, and then we see what’s happen 😊. At the moment I’m very relaxed to it all,- I’m probably more “stressed out” that I’m showing you my videos today… that’s feels bit out of my comfort zone to be honest….😳…..then the thoughts and dreams about working with wine and grapes in California 😊.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧑 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧑

See you soon 😊

I have sent in my application to a new and very different job then I have ever done before. And that’s not all,- the job it’s not either in Spain, Norway or Europe πŸ‡. I have used a bit of time to think this through, if I should apply or not ….and slowly it became a dream I didn’t knew I had 😊. I did sent in my video application some days ago (you can find it in my post)…so now it is just to live my life, wait and see what happens πŸ‡πŸ˜ŠπŸ·.
