After I published yesterday’s blog entry I received an email from the recruiter asking about my availability early next week for a SECOND INTERVIEW! Yippee! So I am going Monday morning.
I asked the recruiter if he had received any feedback about me from the first interview and he replied that they thought it went very well and that they liked my personality.
I wondered if this is when a person of the opposite sex describes you as having a “good personality”? When what they mean is you are not physically attractive. When they might also call you a “Two Bagger” meaning not only do you put a bag over your head when you’re out on a date, but your date does too! Putting this in the context of the job search, does this mean your skills are sub-par but they like you as a person?
I’m sure, or at least I’m as sure as I can be about anything in the job search, that they would not have me come back in just to have a social chat or play cards or talk pop culture. They are bringing me back because I have the job skills and people skills they are looking for.
I think. I hope. I pray. But just in case, I’ll take my latest People magazine and “Old Maid”.
