A little bit of “nerves” is good - keeps you sharp.
You’ll do well, I’m sure, but with you in prayer anyway.

Good luck!

Fifteen minutes. No small talk. Said I was clearly qualified, but he's just starting the interviewing process and he'd let me know in two weeks. Not a single paper on his desk.

He's still filtering resumes.

Didn't get that impression. I was the first interview and he's on vacation next week. I got a real strange vibe.

Probably that bean burrito you ate on the drive over. (FTR -Chatter like this on a prayer thread is one of the things that drives noobs away. We can't be real Christians™ if we joke about prayer.)

I'll continue in prayer 'till we hear the outcome. Mrs FredS was in the office this morning when my alarm sounded at 12 EST. When I told it was a reminder to pray for someone on CPS she said (for like the thousandth time) "you guys are weird".

Yes, she was joking. I'm sure she thought it sweet but she couldn't say so because, you know, we're married. Besides, she never passes on an opportunity to call us weird.

Man, she's right, though. We're freaks. Totally gonzo. In the world but not of it.

And thanks for the prayers, Fred.

If you felt that uncomfortable with the person interviewing you, do you really want to work for / be accountable to that person? Might be time to move on to the next opportunity.

Continuing in prayer for you to have wisdom to recognize and follow God's will.

Fifteen minutes. No small talk.
I recently sat on an interview board where the head guy didn't want small talk or conversation. "Ask the questions as written, no follow-ups. Let them talk and rank their answers." Something about wanting it the same for each candidate. Not the way I've done things... to each his own. Praying.

They say that it is the first and last interviewee that are remembered. But from what you say about him, it doesn't sound like a match.

This was my experience. Zero feedback. Zero conversation.
