I am all gruelled out. [More:]
The interview was tough. A written test, where I had to answer 3 questions in 45 minutes on a subject I know nothing about. Then the two interviewers nitpicked my written answer and asked me lots of questions about it, and then there was a more general interview process.

I'll find out, they said, fairly swiftly if I've made it through to the next stage, which will be more of the same but worse.

I still want the job though.
Well done! Nothing worth having comes easy, as they say. And I've always found it a good sign when they go over your written work on lots of detail -- it tends to be the poor candidates that they find nohing to talk about with.

Heh! I just posted in your earlier thread saying "let us know how it goes." You're very prompt! :)

That sounds like a pretty intense interview. Good luck on the results!

Good job, essexjan. Congrats for getting to the next stage. Hopefully it won't be as discouraging. Good luck!

I'd say the fact that they fine-tooth-combed your written work means they actually read it for content instead of just seeing that you'd done it poorly and round-filing your application - and that must put you ahead of pretty much 90% of all possible applicants. Good luck!

Sounds challenging... with this job, would you get to wear the wig? :)

Good luck! I'll keep my fingers and toes (and eyes) crossed for ya.
