Too creative?!!!


I've been to Munich yesterday. And I don't know if it's the usual I-messed-up-in-the-interview-I'm-never-going-to-get-this-job-feeling or if it's the real divine part of me telling me that I don't get this job. Nevertheless I really liked the company and it was a nice trip.

Would you believe it?! Both ICEs (to and fro Munich) were early!!!! Normally it's the other way around.

So I was half an hour early for the interview. (Try to dilly-dally when it's snowing heavily and no Starbucks around... it's just not working.)

But it was not a big deal, they just changed their plans and we talked. And while they think I can handle the organizational stuff (go figure! Good thing they haven't seen my room this morning ;-) and my english skills are good enough for them, they have a bit of tummy aches when it comes to the needed technical / software skills.

I'm an engineer for chrissakes, I can work myself into any technological field!!! So yeah, I've never been into the Unix - part of Mac OS, but it wasn't necessary! Because my iBook G4 never misbehaved, that's why I LOVE APPLE!!! If they want some computer scientist, they should have written it into the job ad. Okay enough with the ranting.

Anyway I really think this company would be a good fit and that we would get along fine. The project manager told me that I'm really creative (Literally he's afraid that I'm too creative for this job!). They even said they would help to get settled down there. SOOOO nice! And I'd get my own MacBook Pro for work and home. *sigh* No more darned windoof. And yes the job still sounds fine to me. They'll tell me how it went at the end of next week they have other interviews scheduled. If I'm lucky, the other interviewees are dimwits. LOL

In any case they liked my Think Different application! So I'll stick with the crazy stuff. ;-P

Yesterday was really funny. I talked to a former colleague because she has my old projects and had some questions that the former project manager (my successor) couldn't answer at that moment. Funny how it goes.

And on the train back to Leipzig I talked to my neighbor and it turn out he's the managing director of an energy company. He was really nice and the chat we had was really interesting. He also gave me some good ideas for my next interviews and applications. Thank you, dear universe.

So, essentially it was a good but exhausting day. I took some digital pictures and will post them as soon as I get to it.

Today I write a test and hopefully go on night shot photosafiri with Chris, depending on the weather. At the moment it SNOWS! Argh. I hope you have nicer weather!



  1. I've got my fingers crossed for you.

  2. Hope that you hear back with a good answer soon!!!

  3. Good luck! They are crazy not to pick you. Waiting in the WORST. Hang in there.
