So yesterday I experienced my first official interview for a job that I gave a crap about. It was much more intense than anticipated. Had a lot of questions asked of me about my personal experiences and Navy history and what I could bring to their team at this company. The job would have me working with a team of only a few guys on a Research and Development team for a water heater, HVAC, pool heaters company. The whole job seemed amazing and seems like such an awesome opportunity to learn and gain experience (especially for an entry-level position). However, i’m nervous about what to expect now that the interview is over and was left wondering if I would even hear back from them at all. The job itself isn’t officially open until March internally and then externally to the public thereafter. So official interviews (which I expect to be more technical and electronics based) will occur once I’ve applied later in March I would suspect. Hopefully I’ll get some form of email or response back from them to give me an impression of what they thought of me.
