Preferably pay for the gas, I'm a terrible driver and not just because I'm Asian.
Haha! Stereotypes are funny!
Nah there are other reasons why I hate driving but I'll save that for another post.
Anyways, the Mental Health Hospital (or as I learned, used to be called the "Institution for the Insane" back in 1908) for my interview is in this dinky little town. I swear, this mental hospital is the only reason why this town is even prospering. With less than 7000 people living here there aren't any buses so even if I did move here for a year I'd either have to walk everywhere or own a vehicle.
But the hospital itself is nice, the people there are too. And I think the interview was the best one I've had so far. They mostly asked generic questions you know, "What were you do in situation X" and "What kinds of experiences do you have" etc. etc.. I had this problem in other interviews where when I got a question that stumped me I would freeze for a few seconds before sputtering out an answer.
And I probably sound like this.
But it didn't happen this time. In fact, only one bad thing was said during the entire interview process.
"We're still interviewing other people".
For those of you who read this post you'll remember that I lost all the previous jobs to other people as well. I was hoping that with this job being so far away and so close to the school term that others would not be interested, leaving me the sole applicant. I thought wrong.
I know, it's kind of stupid to get all worked up because they're interviewing other people but I've become paranoid. I mean, I was perfect for two other jobs involving around research because I have had a lot of experience in research and they still chose someone else over me.
Me and my buddy Derrick applied for the same research position and were joking around after our interview. We were saying things like "I'm going to get the job because I took more stats courses" or "No, I'm going to get it because I've done more research work".
He ended up getting the job.
I get a prize now right?
And with only one position left for this job what reason should I have to believe I'm the best candidate for it?
Maybe I'm being too hard on myself.
Maybe it's time to go fix up this horrid schedule while I still have time.
