this afternoon i had my second interview with ibm’s toronto software lab, this time with a manager and a technical person, so i think the manager is higher up than the last person i talked to. it’s hard to judge how the interview went. i dont think that the manager was as prepared for this interview as the last manager was, but that would make sense if this was someone ‘higher up’ that was involved more to confirm the first managers opinion of me. in this case i think i’m still in good shape. he said that he’d be getting back to me by early next week, so we’ll see what happens.
