Well, I'll be flying to Seattle to interview with Amazon next week, and then to Charleston, SC to interview with ATD. I will be leaving Tuesday evening, and not getting back until late Saturday. I may make it home Wednesday evening and Thursday morning, but it's doubtful.

The ATD people made their decision to interview me in person within 15 minutes of getting off the phone with me. It was a strange interview in which they kept picking a subject area and asking progressively harder questions until we got to a question I didn't know the answer to. Then they'd pick a different subject area and do the same thing. I was a bit worried that I didn't do well when it was all over. :-) I think they were most impressed that I was completely honest about what I didn't know, and interested in knowing the answer.

I hope I can find a job soon. *sigh*

Edit 2003-09-24:

Well, ATD won't be flying me out the same day I get in from Seattle, they'll be flying me out on Sunday the 5th instead. So, that will be much nicer. The person I talked to there said their interview process was rather strenuous, and that she wanted me to be alert for it. :-)

*grin* Thanks! It'll be sort of disappointing to leave here though. :-(

It will be disappointing that you have to leave, but we all can have Scooby conference call nights!

And, I can invite people to visit. :-) Seattle is a fun place, from all accounts. I remember thinking that the jellyfish and the ferry were interesting when I visited there when I was 7. :-)
