This Afternoon's Interview

xinit: how'd that interview go?

bride: I'm not sure what to make of it... they considered today's interview my "second interview" because "we've met before". It was heavy on the technical discussion, which went okay, but there was no written exam like I thought.

xinit: you sound disappointed about not having an exam

bride: well, yeah, I guess I am a bit disappointed. It worries me because that's their trademark and they didn't do it...

bride: They also didn't ask for my references. I'm kinda worried about that. Does that mean they weren't considering hiring me anyway, so they didn't bother? Or does it mean they think they know me well enough that they don't need to check on my references?

xinit: some people don't think refs are all that important, since everyone tends to load their references a bit with "sure things"....

*sigh* I hate waiting.

hrm, maybe no tech exam because your previous work speaks for itself? How well known are you to them, that always helps. They might think they were doing you a favor by not making you take the test, showing they have confidence in you.

When will you know?

Paula, who has an interview tomorrow.

Possibly... I've been talking to this company on and off since 1996 for various student employment projects of mine. Never really for my own employment opportunities, though, and I wasn't interviewing with anyone I knew or worked with before.

> How well known are you to them, that always helps.

They remember me from a discussion we had last year, which amazes me. But that was a totally different story... I thought I'd be starting from scratch in the interviewing process. Maybe I left a huge impression last year...

> When will you know?

Next Monday or Tuesday at the latest, possibly earlier than that... *whimper*

Good luck on your interview though!! =)
