Well it was an interesting interview. This huge glass 6 story building and they had the entire top floor (penthouse). I showed up early dressed in my best suit. The receptionist escorted me to their beautiful conference room where she gave a sheet of paper with what the job entails. Nothing I haven't done before.
The guy I spoke with on the phone a few days ago for a half hour came in to greet meet (younger than me American) and said the VP is in town and he's about
to catch a plane back home overseas so it would be a few minutes. Started to sweat a little but then realized, I already have a job so if I bomb here who cares (although I really want this one).
So the young guy returns with his boss (European girl) and the VP says he'd like to be involved with the interview (he's a European in his early 50's). We all sit down and start with some small chit chat about
the building, weather, etc. So they start in with their questions and I'm saying to myself I need to be different then the regular applicant so they remember me. Being a goofball I figure laughter is appreciated by everyone instead of the same robotic answers. Not like I did a stand comedian act but here and there to throw in something couldn't be that bad.
Well after the nervousness left and I felt comfortable I had both Europeans in my hands. On my resume at the bottom under Miscellaneous I added that I was writer for a website where I write weekly articles. I figure a company can see they would be getting a person that communicate well so people told me to add to my resume. I even put links to my articles if they wanted to read it. Well the big guy says he read one of my articles and to explain it to the point where I said "Boy do I sound geeky, I'll remove it from my resume". They all laughed and the big guy said it was great.
It went for almost an hour long which I was surprised they gave me that long. I felt it was a good sign. I'm pretty good at reading people and felt it went well.
My friend just called me and I'm currently the front runner out of 8 applicants. I have 2 more interviews to dodge. I'll know in a few days.
