Job Interview

Place to discuss anything, almost. No politics, religion, Microsoft, or anything else that I (the nazi censor) deem inappropriate.

Job Interview

Post by Tux » Mon Aug 24, 2009 10:47 am

Hi guys,

This is a slightly different thread.
I've been invited to interview for this week for a job I'm really interested in. Because I've been at college I haven't interviewed for a (serious) job in a while.

I was hoping someone might have a couple of interesting thoughts or tips for me before I go to this interview! :-D

Here is a link to the job specification. I think most of you guys know what I'm about, the latest news is that I have graduated with my Masters degree.

TIA

Thanks Void!

I'm feeling positive about the role. Only worry is I have little perl experience; however, I've tumbled with enough shell scripting and programming languages that I could learn pretty quickly.

Yeah, you're a pretty smart cookie and I'm sure you would pick anything up very quickly.

hey cool, not to steal away your thread but just recently got a new Job as well. As of next week I am a Junior Systems Administrator at a very cool commercial ISP/ Web Hosting/ VOIP provider.

I'll be managing FreeBSD servers (they only use FreeBSD and OS X)
