interview - take 2 - work

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.

sweet - fun - work

aw yeah... just got home from watching the timberwolves beat the lakers. not only that, it was the third straight win this season against the lakers. a win on the 26th in la will mean a sweep for the season. that'd be nice vindication after the lakers eliminating the wolves in the first round last year.

the other great thing today was getting a second interview with IBM. tuesday afternoon i'll have another interview with two people this time, so hopefully i'm getting closer. also get to take their IPATO (Information Processing Aptitude Test Online). fun fun...

interview - work

so today was interesting. this morning i had a phone interview with a manager from ibm's toronto software lab. the interview was scheduled to be 1 hour, but we ended up talking for over an hour and a half. i feel like it went well. my resume had caught his eye because of my physics background as he's got a phd in physics and he'd done computational work. he was also pretty impressed with the fact that i had a publication in phys rev lett. we probably spent about 45 minutes or so talking about my masters research and job experience, then moved on to kind of a 'tech quiz' with him asking me to give quick, short answers to questions like 'what is the difference between a system call and a library call' and 'what are the pros/cons of using shared libraries'. i'm pretty excited about the possibility of working for ibm and look forward to hearing from them. could be as much as 1-2 weeks before i hear anything though. waiting sucks...
