Of my emotions in this job hunt.. today was a first. I am feeling so very amused.

This morning I was speaking to the hiring manager at a company about an opening they have. We talked about the role, he discussed the merits and demerits and in the process talked a bit about his career background. The conversation then moved to him talking of taking a break to study, and suddenly from job conversation shifted to me giving advice on different schools, the application process, my school and what they look for etc. Well, the role I had called for was too junior, but was feeling so very amused when I kept the phone.


This evening, I met someone about another job. The conversation started with the role and once again moved to studying, whether the course was worth it, again more advice on my school, costs, scholarships - the works. And once again, me leaving feeling very amused.

Atleast you now know how many people covet the school you went to...

[Grafxgurl] Nothing happening :( And I think its more of a coincidence than a sign.

[Sunrayz] Yes.. trying to keep going.

[Beks]Unlikely, am very bad at giving advice. And as for career adviue .. am so confused myself!

[Ekta] Well, these weren't really interviews. One was a recruitment consultant and the other wanted to tell me that the job was too junior.

[Akkare] Wish they'd covet my skills as well.
