I went for an interview in reply to a fancie shmancie Ad in the papers.The Co. didn't give ut the job profile as such all it said was graduates from any stream cud walk in.Before contemplating to go for somethin I aint got no clue of I decide to visit their website to see what the Co.is all bout.After browsing thru I got a vague idea tht these guys were basically into designing various courses nad training material for a lotta top notch clients.I give them a call at the phone No. listed to kinda jus ask what kinda vacancies were available only to be told by some dumb receptionist dat they don't give no information over da phone and dat i wud have to come n meet them personally with my resume between after 5 pm only.
Curiosity got the better of me and so I went there...and met the receptionist.After handing over my resume ,she looked at it n told me dat there were jobs for 'Instruction Designer'(Whatdeveah dat is!!...this was da first time am even haering of such a thing) I ask her what exactly it meant and she gave me a very brief hoedown bout it having somethin to do with content writing and designing online tutorials and training courses.Then she concludes by tellin me to sit and wait coz i had to give two written tests.I wait...meanwhile quite a number of candidates kept comin and askin da same question which i had previously asked.They too were told to wait.
After and hour of waiting and staring at my fingernails...we are all asked to go up (as in the fourth floor up!!) .The first test was easy.i passed it.The second test was well...huh..beyond my comprehension so to speak and i do think i was not alone when i realised this.10 of us got thru and we all looked up at each other thinkin..well what the fuck is this!!
I can't really explain how the test was but it majorly had to do with our conceptual skills.we had a a couple of passages and we had to like visualise it and present it in words how we would explain the passage via a video clip.There was some other bullshit stuff like dat...which called for my creative ablities..which i well don't really possess.So hoo hum somehow i managed to pass the second one as well.The only reason why is probably the guy who corrected it is either stupid or he some potential.
We r all then sent down to the reception for another hour of waiting and this talkin....yeah i managed to find someone whose brains i cud chew..hehehe
My name is called...i go for the interview.The interview went well except for the part where she asked me if i wud work for the company for 2 yrs which I well had doubts about.She then asked me to justify it by askin me why she wud incurr expenses on training me knowing dat i wud later chuck the job.I point blank told her dat this is the first time am hearing of instruction designing and obviously i do not see it as a career option.I got other plans.She concluded by saying well we have another week of interviews to go and if after dat u are selected then i shall give u a call.
I leave thinkin dat this seems like a cool job...ive alwayz wanted to do somethin different from what the rest are doing.But I don't think am gonna get dat call.After every interview 95% of da time I get a gut feelin if am gonna recevie dat call or no.This time I think its no.
Cannot believe tom is 42 yrs old.....I say he doesn't look a day over 30 :-) As long as he aint goin around with dat Penelope bitch life is good....:-D
