Telephone Interview on Thursday, June 10
« on: June 08, 2010, 08:31:33 PM »
One of my recruiters recently submitted me as an applicant for a 3-month paid internship in .NET development/QA for a business that specializes in developing software for financial/banking institutions.  It looks like a very good opportunity for employment and some on-the-job training in my desired career field of .NET software development, so I really want to ace the phone interview I have scheduled for 1:00 p.m. (Pacific Daylight Time) this Thursday, June 10.  Until then, please pray for me as I conduct all the research I need to complete over the next few days (e.g., research on the target company and on the person who will be conducting the interview so that I have a good idea of what he wants and how I can meet his needs).  I'll let y'all know how everything goes after I'm done with the interview on Thursday.  (My immediate goal is to get called in for a face-to-face interview.)

Lord, have mercy!

May you impress them so much, that they would wish to hire you on the spot...and keep you on after the initial 3 month period is over!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

UPDATE

The phone interview proved more grueling than I anticipated with my two interviewers asking me a series of technical questions to probe my knowledge of .NET programming and test frameworks.  I didn't exactly answer all their questions as confidently as I would have liked, but they evidently thought well enough of me to call me in for a face-to-face interview next Wednesday, June 16.  So now it's time to prepare for Round 2.

Grace and Peae Peter,

I too do web development and was recently hired after a series of interviews. If they are meeting you face to face... they are serious my friend. Businesses are hiring but they are being really picky right now. HR will likely run you through a battery of personality tests too but if you make it past the first face to face you are likely in.

I won't speak for God but I hope the very best for you, you've always been kind to those who happen to not be Orthodox and I've always felt you've been fair to me. So I hope you the very very best.

Peace.
