The Unexpected Call

There I was dragging myself out of bed at seven in the morning. You can ask La Faghag, I am so not a morning person at all... But I had to cause today is the big day with DC II. Oh but I woke up with an extreme sore on my right calf from the cramp I had in my sleep.

What a way to start the day but the show must go on.

Showered, dressed up and headed to the waiting place for the interview.

While waiting for my turn, I was a nervous wreck! My hands were cold and I was shivering. It became worse when it was my turn. I don't know why I was so nervous to the point of shaking. The air con didn't help much either. It was freezing cold! I tried to be compose as best as I could but probably she could see I was shaking so badly.

I tried my best to answer the questions well but I messed up one question. What are your achievements? I went blanked. I had the answer in my head but I just fell apart and blabbered something else instead... I managed (or at least I think I did) to redeem myself by asking her a lot of questions about the company and the position I was applying for.

So it was a so so interview and I could have done better honestly.

I went out of the room and was feeling a little sad. Walked around the fair and met up the people from my previous company to chat. I sometimes do miss working in my previous company because of the people, not the job.

Then I got a called.

*one missed call ringtone

Interview Secretariate: Hello Queer Ranter?
Me: Yes?
IS: Can you come back again at 1330 for your DC II interview?
Me: *blanked Didn't I just went for one just now? Are you at the waiting area?
IS: Yes.
Me: I'm standing in front of you.
IS: Oh hi. Yes you've been shortlisted for an interview at 1330.
Me: Uh I went to the interview just now didn't I?
IS: Yes but this one is for another division.
Me: Oh!? Ok. Thanks.

Apparently, this guy is looking for people for his division and he shortlisted four people to be interviewed from the pile of CVs that he got yesterday. I was so excited. Thanks to my sis and Walter for sprucing up my CV.

So I went in for it and I think it went well. I was calm, composed and confident when I was talking to him. Spoke to him as though I knew him for donkey years and I tried to juice out as much information as I can about him, his position, his experience and the company.

I got to know DC II better and more about the industry of which they're involved in. We chatted a lot and I tossed him loads of questions. From his experience, to technical knowledge in the field and what is the career development like in the company. I sold myself as much as I could for him and I do hope he bought it.

I'm very pleased with myself with my performance and I am excited about this company. DC II has just upped itself to DC I!

Right now, I'm just hopeful about it. I'll know in two weeks time.

Now I shall write a thank you letter to him. He was indeed very helpful and nice.

You know you love me.
XOXO
