(Back to blogging at least for the time being. Hubs was a wash-out. Still looking for a new job)
And speaking of looking for a job....
A job interview is a two way street. You are interviewed for a position and you, in a sense, interview them back both about the job and the employer as a whole. You can tell a lot about a potential employer by how they conduct an interview. I have been a manager myself and know it from the other end too.
I have had a decent number of interviews in the last eight months or so (some still ongoing) and three bad ones that really stick out –
Brickfield Asia College – Interview was okay but during the mock lecture an elderly woman who smelled like urine kept interrupting me to talk about her own classes and unrelated subjects – very irritating.
Kingston International School - I felt the interviewer was really unprofessional both in the way she spoke, her attire, etc. and she kept making deliberate misstatements about my resume which she had right in front of her....Might have been some internal politics there. Perhaps she felt threatened for her position.
Worst was Universiti Sains Malaysia – A good institution and they were all smiles in the panel interview and promised a lot of things in answer to my questions. Good thing I read the contract they offered very thoroughly and asked further questions as they basically lied to my face.
