The spin on tomorrow's interview: I am going there to find out if it's the right job for me.

(Just don't focus on the impending emotional exhaustion, no need to worry yet about the commute, never mind the petty details like not yet having discussed salary in even the most general terms...)

nerves

One of my former managers once told me that it's good to be a little bit nervous before a presentation, because otherwise your delivery tends to be flat. I always found this vaguely consoling: since I was going to be nervous anyway, why not think of it as a good thing?

Just now it occurred to me that I can apply this reasoning (delusional or not) to the prospect of an interview...

Just got the call from Google, it's a no-go.

Phooey.

grumble

I would truly have liked to sleep late this AM, but instead set my alarm in order to be not only awake, but fully caffeinated and maximally coherent for a scheduled 9AM phone call with a recruiter... who has not yet called. Her choice of time, mind you. Bah.

Update: she finally called at 10:45, not a word of apology... C'est la guerre.

I remain cautiously pessimistic )

Off to the interview shortly, thinking happy thoughts. Per usual, kindly cross all available digits...

The interview is scheduled for Monday, rather than tomorrow. The recruiter had said it would either be Thursday or early next week, and I did think it seemed improbable that the scheduling could be orchestrated so fast... but this waiting part, I hate.
jaeclectic: (road)
Yes, I will be having another interview at everyone's favorite search company. Details TBD.
