AW: Thanks for the interview vibes!

Thanks so much to everyone for the interview vibes yesterday--I felt great about how things went, and know that Knottie vibes played a role in that! =)I met with something in the range of 17 (!!) people during the course of the day (usually more than one at a time), and they were all really, really nice. I actually didn't have to do as much talking as I'd expected--in a few of my 10 or so different meetings, they asked questions, but in many of them they were more just giving me information about the place, the position, etc., which meant that I didn't end the day with a hoarse throat. =)  But when they did ask questions, for the most part I felt really comfortable with them, and felt like I gave really good (and honest!) answers that they seemed really happy with and receptive to. By 4pm it still hadn't felt like a long day--even though I was in interview mode, it was all very pleasant, and didn't feel terribly stressful. What pushed me over the edge to feeling exhausted was dinner--not because it was stressful at all, but because it essentially added 2.5 hours to my day, and I would've been just as happy to head home at 5, instead of rolling in at 8!Overall I'm really pleased with how the day went, and feel like I'd really like it there. Now comes the waiting--I was the first of four candidates (hopefully I set the gold standard, and they won't have forgotten about me by the end of next week!)--the last candidate goes next Friday, and then they hope to move really quickly after that. So continued vibes would be much appreciated! =)

    That's awesome that it went well!  I can't believe it was such a long day.  I guess they want to make sure all parties are still interested and everyone knows what they're getting into.

    Yayayay! I knew you'd rock the interview as well! :-) Continued vibes, of course!! And don't forget the rules of primacy & recency from Psych 101...they'll remember you & the last one most, but not so much the middle people. So here's to the last guy stinking it up! LOL

    I personally hate eating during interviews...I never end up eating anything, because of the talking and trying not to spill or do anything dumb. You seem much better about that than me, though!

    Glad to hear that it went well! I met with about 15 people or so throughout the day when I interviewed at Heinz. They handed me an itinerary when I walked in!! So I guess some places do that!
