TMJ: Another interview today. This one was the second round. I can confidently say… It did not go as well as the first round.
The interview lasted 2 hours. I’m not sure why, but I was so low on energy and really just not myself throughout the whole thing. Among other things, he asked me about specific examples of my persuasive and stakeholder management skills. He grilled my example of ‘saying no’ to my superiors. He asked about my weakness in the area of persuasion, specifically. Nothing crazy, but definitely draining.
I met with Cami for dinner somewhere on the upper east side. We split a bottle of wine, steak and pasta. I drowned my post-interview disappointment in a plate of dulce de leche crepes… Those definitely saved the day.
