I listened to EACH and EVERY one of these on my drive downtown. The last one played as I sat in my car reviewing my notes and jotting down some final questions to ask them based on my research.

I won't say I nailed it... because the party doesn't start until I have an offer letter in hand... but I will say that it felt casual and smooth.... I won't say comfortable, because the recruiter asked really good and insightful questions, but I believe I answered them thoroughly and competently. We had some laughs and a really solid, personable conversation. I think I'm in the running - I've been sent an assessment to take, and they're scheduling follow-up interviews with other executives.

We'll see what happens...

steve, I can't tell you how much it puts me at ease to see you taking the bull by the horns. Your honesty and transparency about your feelings about the whole process somehow makes me more comfortable in my own skin. It reminds me that we should ask for broader shoulders, not a lighter load.

Thanks for showing us younguns how to blaze a trail with courage and dignity.

awesome! I'm late this this post but I'm pulling for you. I don't know what the job is but I already know you're the best candidate.

Go get it!

Yay!! Late to the party but great to hear it went well. I've noticed with multi-stage interviews that if one goes well, then subsequent ones do too because that guy will pass on that you're a fun, competent person to chat with. Hopefully that's the pattern you find as well =)
