jlancaster89 saidAlright guys, so I had my oral board interview today. They only asked me like 10 questions. I don't think I did too hot because I kinda stumbled on words and had pauses in my speech. However, one of the board members who interviewed me told me I did really good as she was walking me back to the lobby. Is that a good sign or do you think she says that to everyone?
That's great, everyone who is interviewing understands that you will be nervous, and may stumble over your words. Dont be too hard on yourself. A mentor of mine years ago told me not to think of it as an interview and think instead that its a meeting.
It can be very intimidating for younger people to walk into a room of older professionals particularly institutionalised organisations. They know that, and although you may need to perform under huge stress in the job you are applying for as long as you answer clearly, have decent responses and seem to be able to fit with the organisation they will be happy.
Let us know how you go mate, I worked with many fireys in Sydney for a long time at Events, they are just such great guys, handsome and sweet and so damn fit,
