Neither have I. The extent of a phone interview I’ve had is “why do you want the job” , “what’s your salary expectations” , “why’d you apply” , “job history” and that’s it. This is going to be a 15 minute phone interview. That’s, like, a lot.


#5420

I mean, I could probably get used to it but like… idk xD

Same, same with the phone interview.


#5421

I’ve been stuck in my ways of organising my writing for more than a decade, so it’s hard to get out of it.

It’s happening in under and hour and I’m so scared ahahaha!


#5422

Deep breathes. In out, in out. You’ve got this!


#5423

Sounds sexist, but I hope it’s a woman interviewing me ahahaha!


#5424

Nah it’s normal I think… XD


#5425

Nice job! Also, I love that song :grin:


#5426

Thanks mate :kissing_heart:

Also, preferring f2f interviews totally makes sense. I hate talking on the phone so much. It doesn’t help that my dad always teases me about how awkward I sound once the call is over. I usually make a point of not making calls when I know he can hear me because of that. Good luck though!


#5428

Yeah, I don’t really like talking on the phone. If I can skert by with texting, that’s what I do. It’s not so much the phone call it’s more that I don’t feel like I’m prepared. I mean, I am prepared. I’ve got questions and answers and reasons for wanting the job; it’s all written down. But I still feel like I’m unprepared.

The more I read about news the more I worried about Europe’s future…even though I’m halfway across the world.


#5430

Oof same tbh. ;-; It’s starting to get a bit ridiculous.


#5431

The recent vote several hours ago was wayyy too close than it should have been. It’s almost like the british parliament is actively trolling the world at this point :confused:


#5432

:joy: I’d rather text than call too. But talking f2f is my preferred way to talk to somebody. And it sounds like you’ve just got a case of nerves. Just relax, because

I wanna know how they expect to do anything without the internet. Like, that’s what they are voting against, right?


#5434

Oh boy that ain’t the worst of it. In comparison to the whole Brexit mess, Article 13 almost seem like a sideshow.


#5435

Yeah, I’m really, really nervous.


#5436

ummm i don’t watch the outside world as much as i should what’s britain’s problem now? >.>;


#5437

Brexit.


#5438

I mean, Article 13 is going to completely change the internet, so that’s pretty shitty.
