It was interesting – the interviewer was thorough, and I certainly expect that any project with problems would have fallen to bits in the 90 minutes. Even thought (I like to think) we have a sound project I was caught out by some management questions. Even if the grant goes another way, the call was worthwhile as ‘proofreading’ of how we run eQuality Time. There were a few questions that we have an good answer to, but that we’ve yet to write down anywhere. There are also a few policies that we have but haven’t got a system for reviewing.
I filled a couple of pages with notes that will make eQualty Time better. I also need to get better at the process: there were figures and files that I should have had at my fingertips, and searching for them wasted both the interviewer’s time and my own. Also the interviewer pointed out a problem with my code, which was embarrassing.
We’ll let you know how it goes.
