I just got done with my Wirestone interview. I can tell you one thing. If I thought I wanted to work there before… now, I know I want to work there. The guy I interviewed with was very cool. We spent a lot of time talking about the company, what they do, and more importantly their teams and culture. We spent a lot of time talking about me. They put a lot of value on finding a right fit for the team, and I totally respect that. Having worked with sticks-in-the-mud, I know nothing can destroy morale quite like a bad team member. I guess they know, as I do, that the tech stuff can be learned. I botched a few technical questions, but I hope he could tell I’m competent.
Perhaps it was during the discussion of computer gaming that sealed it for me. They’re young, they’re technical, they’re like me.
This place pretty much sounds like everything that HP is not. All I kept thinking about was the old Coach Hawk saying, “Bigger isn’t necessarily better…. Better is Better.”
But, I’m not putting the cart before the horse. He said he’s got a couple more interviews this week. He’s also sending me a doc to work on to show what I can do. So, I’ve still got more to do. Do I feel confident? Sure… I’m a positive guy. But I’m prepared for anything.
He also said there would be an interview or two more as well, provided I make it.
Keep the good thoughts coming. I appreciate them all!
