Easiest (?) interview I've ever done
Thursday, October 10, 2019
The one way interview thing was kind of a joke, in the end, though it took a moment to get it set up. The introductory video mentioned how you get a certain amount of time, once you see the question, to think about it, and a preset amount of tries at presenting your best foot, and made it seem like if you got to that last chance, you had to submit whatever you came up with on that try. Fortunately, the client set it up so that we had unlimited time to think, and unlimited chances to deliver our answers. Which was a good thing, because I might have done it over a few times.
The questions themselves were very straightforward, only three of them, just asking a) what's your style of helping docs and nurses go live with new software, b) what sections of the software are you an expert in, and c) tell us one fun fact about yourself. I took more time trying to get my lighting correct, what with deciding to do this thing at home, after all, rather than going to a library, and using my phone's flashlight app to provide sufficient lighting, so as to not look like something they might encounter in a haunted house. I think it looked just fine, and I hope they agree. For the fun fact, I mentioned how I wanted to get to all 50 state capitols, and how I looked up how far it was from Shreveport, where one of the client's hospitals is located to Louisiana's state capitol in Baton Rogue. I do hope I pronounced the name of that city correctly...well, as correctly as the people watching the video pronounce it, anyway.
So, a bit of stress over what turns out to be a nothing much of an interview. Given how generic the questions and my answers turned out to be, I'm hoping the person who recommended me carries some weight with the decision makers, and is sufficient enough to score me a trip to yet another state I've never stepped foot in before.
