Well, I had an interview yesterday. It was the … well, I guess it was the second interview in a really long time.
Did you know that Facebook has job listings? I was looking through it before I went to work on Thursday and found one that I thought sounded really interesting. I researched the company on LinkedIn, and found a link back to the company on Career Builder. I asked Dale what he thought and he said, “Carpe Diem.” So I hit the apply button and left for work.
They emailed me on Friday to set a job interview for yesterday, July 10th. —
It was really an interesting interview. I had been under the impression that I would have a 30 minute interview, and that I was the only that was scheduled at the time. It was an incorrect assumption. When I walked in, there was another lady walking in at the same time. We had sat down and less than 2 minutes later, a guy walked in. We were all obviously scheduled for the same interview time.
I met with one of the hiring managers, and we walked through the same usual questions: Tell me your strengths, tell me about a leadership role, do you think this is a good fit for you, etc. And that this was the first round of interviews and that we would be called later in the day for a second round.
I never got a second call.
That’s fine. Because I went to work and had a very good talk with my manager. And at the same time, got my schedule for next week. Somehow, they gave me 35 hours. So, I’m not too worried. I think I’m going to stay where I am for now.
Anyway, first round interviews. Who knew?
