Job Interview

Post by Saint on Mon Mar 28, 2011 4:21 am

I had an interview with Shell for a trading position and failed. The Dutch interviewer was a total noob, he didn't ask me a single question about my motivations for joining Shell (which I was more than prepared to ace), instead he went into more and more details into some random situations I experienced during my undergrad (obviously I can't remember every fucking single detail from 3 years ago).

Klootzak!

It's been more than 3 months T_T
I have an interview with Nationwide next week friday.. I don't have much hope for that one because it's an über quantitative financial analyst role which requires you to be basically a math genius and a good programmer at the same time.

lol I already forgot all the C++ syntax
