I had my first interview for a university scholarship today!! I was so nervous beforehand, because I know I can get rather tongue tied and crack really lame jokes under pressure. =/ I ended up waking up at 6, wore a suit (I LOVE CORPORATE WEAR) and sat around thinking of how to present myself until I left the house at 10 lolol.
The interview itself was not too bad, I had reps from Macquarie Bank and Ernst & Young, who were pretty friendly, but I think I failed the problem solving questions. o.o They asked this:1) What are the advantages of both a square manhole and a round manhole?2) If you were on an expensive boat with a glass bottle of alcohol and were dying of thirst - BUT the boat had no bottle opener to be found, how would you open the bottle?
WTF!! I made up complete bullshit that made no sense for the first one, something about round manholes being safer because the square ones have corners and edges (lolol kill me, they just nodded and chuckled at that comment). For the second one, I cracked some lame jokes like since it's an expensive boat, I probably wouldn't be on it myself so I'd ask someone for assistance, and drinking alcohol on a boat is a bad idea (FOOT IN MOUTH MUCH?!).
In my defense, I have no knowledge whatsoever of manholes and opening bottles of alcohol without a bottle opener. :P
After the interview, I asked what sort of answers they've heard from those questions, then the guy from Macq Bank was like 'oh, I ask different ones all the time. In fact, the second one was from the Hamish & Andy show yesterday!' HAHA fml.. should listen to the radio more!
Hm, hopefully I made a good impression but out of 120 people being interviewed, they're only choosing 30!! :( Oh well, even if I don't get in, I met a nice girl today called Wendy :) We were both waiting for our interviews and bonded over.. our nervousness?! Haha, I saw her getting out of the lift as I was about to exit the UTS building then we just complained about how we stuffed up our interviews rofl. Lucky girl, she's off at the airport now on holidays to China! Oh, and their was a guy also waiting for his interview who looked like Siwon from Super Junior!!!!! The only thing I know about him is this was his interview too, and he wants to work at Coca Cola for the free drinks lmao!
Oh! I bought a new webcam two days ago :) Do I look like an office worker? hahaha
