I had a job interview today
« on: November 11, 2010, 07:29:00 PM »
They said they had some other applicants they wanted to speak with, and that they would get back to me within a week. The job involves customer support at a Linux-based web hosting business.

Congrats.
You have been ignored for common interest of mankind.

I am a terrible person and I am a typical Blowhard Liberal for being wrong about Bom.

Well, I don't know if I've got it yet. Like I said, they're getting back to me within a week.

An interview means that you appear to have the skills they want.  The interview process is more about finding the right personality rather than the right skill set. 

So congrats on having the skills they want.

Well as long as you can fake being nice to people and not calling them a noob for calling tech support for something very easy to fix, you'll be fine.

I applied to Victoria's Secret simply because it would be a good experience with all of the interactivity I would get with women. Also I want to challenge discrimination since it is illegal to not hire someone based on gender, race or sexual orientation. I'm not a girl or a gay guy so I'm probably not the type that would apply there generally. I am doing research on lingerie so they cannot argue that I'm not knowledgeable of it.

You'll mostly likely get asked for opinions. (though not while they're wearing it)

I also had a job interview today. As for how it went, all I know is my gut says maybe.

Most of the technical and problem-solving questions on the quiz they gave me were fairly straightforward, it's the verbal interview part I'm not quite as confident with. They wanted me to edit a file (by means of hand-correcting a printout) that I'd never seen before, and apparently I got it nearly right just by making educated guesses. I also correctly solved a lateral thinking problem that they say few people do.

Surely someone out there needs an antisocial, introverted logical thinker to just solve problems all day in isolation?

I don't know what you're implying, but you're probably wrong.
