Let’s face it, Skype interviews are usually super awkward, but I finally had one that was awesome! My interviewer had such a great personality. I think that ultimately is the deciding factor as to whether or not your Skype interview will go well or not. During my EPIK interview, dude was so boring! I can understand that he’s probably been doing interviews all day and for a while since the program was trying to recruit new teachers for the upcoming Fall semester, but dude, you can smile!
I could tell just from the couple of emails that my interviewer and I had exchanged that it was going to be a great interview. She had just got back from a site visit at in Korea the previous day, and I was so surprised that she still had so much energy. I know what that flight is like, and told her that if I were her, I probably would have scheduled the interview next week, LOL!
But anyway, clearly the interview went well. I got an email later in the day telling me that I had successfully passed to the second interview, and was asked to schedule another interview time. However, this interview will be with a colleague of my interviewer. This interview was a whopping 1 hour and 27 minutes! I had never had an interview that long, but because it was so easy going, a lot of it was us just essentially conversing with one another. The second interview is only supposed to be 30 minutes longs, and I’m curious as to what other questions will be asked.
Wish me luck for the second interview. I’m really confident that this is the one, and so I’m just hoping that everything works out. Let me know if you have any questions, and of course, I’ll let you know how the second interview went! 화이팅!
