had a first interview last Friday by one of the barristers wifes i would be working as their receptionist for, and got called back a few hours later that I could go for second interview today. i saw on friday she was scoring me on questions out of 10. have been stressing all weekend and preparing cuz i really want the job. bought a new two piece suit, shoes and shirt, toook over an hour to get my makeup perfect, you know, to make a good impression. So i get there today, and two of the ‘barristers’ are in the room now, both males, around 35 yrs i would say, one is wearing a flowered shirt and a jeans, old work boots and a wearing his sports cap backwards. the other one appears neat and tidy, shirt tie and slacks. they let me in and just chat and joke amongst themselves, telling me about colleagues who drink alcohol, about the previous girl they forgot to check but she turned out to be a prostitute so they got rid of her, and all sorts of weird stuff they talked about beer (cuz im from Belgium and we have a lot of beer) and all kind of random things. i hardly had to say anything, never even once was asked about my skills :S i have no idea what happened just then. the only thing they wanted to know whether i was nervous? i said well maybe just a little because it is a job interview. they told me to relax. but i stayed as professional as i could. it felt almost as if they thought it funny that i was trying to stay professional. do you think they were testing me? i am going to find out in a few hours whether i can start tomorrow or not, and i have no clue whatsoever what i should think of it. (oh fyi, i could see on their papers that i had scores of 10/10, 10/10 and 8/10)
what happened just then?
