Missed a Sunday post in between. Its been a happening week. Turns out the HR made a mistake the other week and sent me a rejection email. They scheduled an interview this week and it went well. I have the manager round tomorrow. I am more or less mentally prepared for the interview. I now have some experience on how manager interviews go. I know what kind of questions will be asked.
We are leaving for South Africa this Saturday. We will be travelling to Mumbai on Friday and will stay in Mumbai for a day before we start to Johannesburg.
I’ll try to add in a post before I leave for South Africa.
Sunday post after a couple of weeks. Couldn’t write last week as I was in Karimnagar for Dasara. Couldn’t write the week before as I was busy with some work.
Its been a disappointing week. I had an initial call with AWS yesterday.. and got rejected immediately. It’s an opportunity that I lost. Aditya had given me the topics for the interviews one month in advance. There can be no excuses for why I could not prepare for the interviews. I wasn’t expecting them to focus entirely on networking. But I should have been better prepared.
I have now squandered 2 opportunities. 3 counting the Walmart last year. I have been overconfident and lax in my preparation. I have to do better. But how?
There are too many things running in my mind right now. I need to relax and clear my mind. Perhaps take a day off. I need to refocus and think about what I have to do. Too many times I do too much planning and very little execution. I should stop doing that.
I’ll need to think about things this week.
