Adventures in job hunting: Greg and Craig were impressed.

This is in follow up to: Adventures in job hunting: a hopeful phone interview.

I had a half hour Skype Interview today and it went really well. Really, really well. You know I hate getting my hopes up, but my hopes are up.

They told me that I’m one of the final three candidates. They told me that they were impressed with my credentials. They told me that I seem as though I’d fit in great in their office. I told them that I absolutely would and that, in my completely biased opinion, they shouldn’t interview the other two and they should just hire me. Then they laughed. Ahhhhh, it was a ‘you had to be there’ kind of moment. Anyways.

They also said that my present location does not bother them and they want to invest in the right employee, whether they come from BC or half way around the world. They said when they hire employees they think long-term and they want someone who’s going to help their company grow, and that if that person comes from Alberta, BC or half-way around the world, they’re going to select who they think will help them in their company growth long term.

I try to not get my hopes up. But my hopes are up.

I really need this.

  1. I’m in the same place. My interviews with the company went really well, I think I have the skill set they need, and am just waiting to hear the news. In the meantime I am stringing another recruiter on because I don’t want him to present me and then I drop out because I get this other job (which seems to be exactly what I want .) Hoping this is a lucky month for us both!

    ––That’s a very good sign! When it’s meant to happen, it happens :). The company that will appreciate your value will be the rare one with good qualities.

    “They told me that I seem as though I’d fit in great in their office”

    ––This is the number 1 thing to get right in any interview! Apparently when it comes down to it, credentials don’t matter, it’s just about whether they like you haha. Fallible humans. And that was a wicked joke, great interview indeed! Good luck!

  3. So glad that it went well. Keep that positive feeling going and hope for the best. I know you’d be the best person for the job and so should they. Got everything crossed for you and hoping you get some amazing news back soon. Would you have to travel for this job or even relocate?
