I left feeling high. Elevated. I nailed it. And just a couple of feet closer to my car, I realized I didn’t like one of my answers. And then another. And, little by little, I dissected and labeled each organ of the interview, giving special attention to scar tissue, scanning for a cause of death. I see an enlarged prostate, and the lower intestines are clearly distended. But when the lungs are examined, they show signs of low oxygen, and the heart is oddly 5 degrees colder than surrounding tissue. Compelling but frustratingly inconclusive data.
Truly, the company is impressive. I rather want to write a Yelp review on the interview process alone. The results remain to be seen, and I neither hold hope nor dread for their decision. I’ll know soon enough. Either way I continue forward movement.
