I'm wrung out like an old washcloth. The phone screen I had earlier this month was successful. The day of "in person" interviews that followed was today. It started out well. I think I acquitted myself well during the first two of the five technical interviews. I then had lunch and a brief tour of the facilities. The next two interviews didn't go so well. I got thrown a type of whiteboard test problem that was not as familiar to me in the first one after lunch, and I think I was tired and a little shell shocked for the the next one. I rallied for the last one and did ok.
I know I did not ace this day of interviews... and I tend to think that you have to ace these interviews to get a job. I'm not holding out too much hope. I should hear something one way or the other in a couple days.
On the plus side, I'm starting to get a better sense of how these interviews work. I think my efforts to study for the interview did help. I just worry that there is something about the process that doesn't show me at my best.
But as Scarlett says "tomorrow is another day".
