I’ve been a bit busy today. After a long time, I’ve attended a couple of interviews – on the same day! After I shaved, showered and dressed, I went out to an internet cafe & get 6 copies of my resume (5 pages long) printed and put them in 6 different covers. Then it was on to the first company where I have applied for a manager of training profile. I spent some time waiting to be called and then spoke to 3 people. I think it went and I do hope I get it. It’s decent pay and it’s close to home just 10 minutes away. Plus it’s an industry that I’m very familiar with and I know I can do well. A little after 1pm (I was there for 2.5 hours) I left and will await the final round, that includes presentations, which will be sometime in the first few days of January.
While standing outside their offices and waiting for a bus to go back home, a friend of mine called me to tell me to get my ass down to a consultants office. A leading MNC also is looking for a training manager for softskills & communications! Oh good, so I went there waited for 15 minutes – during which I also had a lemonade and a little snack as I was quite hungry by then – and had a 30 minute interview with an HR person. They will call me on the 29th to inform me of the time & venue for the second round of interviews. I do not know too much of that company as they haven’t divulged too much information until I am shortlisted to be one of the final 3. Oh well ok! That’s fine with me.
I hope one of these works out and both will be close to my apartment, both will pay well and I can save on travel time!
