video: three is too many
So I broke a 5-year streak and went on an interview today. It was for a job that’s similar to what I’m doing now, but might focus more on the parts of my job that I enjoy and have very little to do with the parts that I don’t care for. I was nervous and not as prepared as I should have been, but I know my stuff and I can go on at length about what I do and what I’ve done. It’s just that for some reason when the recruiter said “Why don’t we meet and talk about the position?” I didn’t realize this was newspeak for “Come in for an interview.”
Thankfully, I was a little less desperate than this:
I mean I have a job, it’s not a great job, but I don’t consider myself to be hunting for another one. So I was interested to hear what they had to offer. One pet peeve of mine that I realized today, however: job applications. If I’ve sent you my resumé and you’re still going to want me to fill in an application… at least send me a copy before I come in or tell me that I can ignore any blanks on the application that are duplicated by information on the resumé. I can still write with pen and paper, but letting my hand cramp up when I’m going to refer back to my own C.V. anyway seems silly.
I felt like I did well, and the job sounds good. We’ll just have to see where things go from here. Fingers crossed! 😉
