My interview

#1 Postby FormicaLinoleum » Thu Nov 17, 2005 12:09 pm

Phew, it's over! I was very nervous!

It was a phone interview. I got to the next stage, and am going in to "meet with some people" on Monday. I like that this is moving quickly so that I don't need to wait forever to find out the results. It is actually sounding pretty promising, and there are two different positions I am being considered for. I don't know how many other people are in the running.

I have mixed feelings about it... I think it went pretty well. But the two people who interviewed me are PhD/MPHs and they have a very public health approach. I don't have any public health in my background so I am afraid that they may think that I won't be a good fit because of that. Other than that, I think I did pretty well.

But they are still interviewing, so I think it will all come down to who I am up against.

Oh, and they are not going to make a decision until mid-Dec. So I have a wait ahead.

Still nothing about this job--they are interviewing at a conference early this week, so I don't think they will be making a decision before next week.

But I have a second interview for a different job on Wed. My first interview had been in October and I had assumed I hadn't gotten the job. Then they suddenly e-mailed me about a second interview. They said it took them a really long time to get through the first round. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for this one--I think getting a second interview is a good sign. The first interview was with the director and higher ups. This one is with other research team members, more like peers of the position.
