The Second Attempt @ The Interview

So after the debacle / tragedy of the interview round that I was supposed to have on Saturday with the manager of training with that company, who contacted me on Friday, ended, I was pretty much bummed out and was feeling quite depressed. Here was a good opportunity and I don’t even get to have the interview. I was hoping that we could do it on Sunday but since I didn’t get a reply back to the sms I had sent to the HR lady, I thought that my chance had come and gone with a whimper.

Today, while I was attending a Coaching & Feedback workshop, they called me up and asked if we could do the interview today. Yay! I must be impressive enough for them to want to still try me out. Good job Rosh! Anyway, I told the guy that I was in a workshop but that I would try to get to a webcam by 7 pm. So after the day’s session was done, I rushed to the bus stop and went over to Padma and walked to the Reliance Webworld. It was raining cats, dogs & a few water buffalloes were seen falling from the sky at random locations!

I managed to get things hoocked up and waited till 7:20 pm when I finally got through to them. But wait, I could see them but they couldn’t see me! Oh well, I am not that great to look at. That was fixed in a few minutes but then there was no sound. So we tried Google Talk for just the sound part. There seemed to be some problem in their side. To hell with it, The training manager said and he called me on my cell and we spoke till almost 9 pm. I think it went well, although I really cannot say. He wants me to create a presentation for the next round and I have to get cracking on that tomorrow. I hope I get the job.
