Spoke with HR again today. She told me to sit tight and that everything is just being taken care of from an administrative standpoint. Interestingly enough, the position was posted online and the day after I applied digitally it was removed. I mentioned this to her and she said they just did not want any other people to apply and not to worry over the next week because "we have our guy." I have to think that is a good sign but I'm still trying to temper my excitement and not get my hopes up. It it sounds too good to be true it usually is.
Bell tore up the Saints last week and Stewart runs with similar power and has the ability to be a big factor in the passing game. Stewart needs to be heavily involved in the offensive game plan tomorrow.
Interview with each of the three employees went very smoothly. I left the office building and my initial/gut feeling was that it could not have gone any smoother. I had the HR director and Security Analyst laughing and just went over specifics about the job and they asked about my master's thesis. It was farily laid back and I did not get grilled with too many of the standard interview questions. Maybe just 3-4 that I handled well. I had some great questions prepared that were specific to the job and the industry as a whole that made the whole morning feel like more of a casual converation. Suit and tie game was on point and I smiled often with good posture and eye contact. After the interview, the final employee that interviewed me took me down the hall to introduce me to the CSO and top dog in the whole building as far as my department would be concerned. Really nice guy and was interested in what I told him about myself and said a lot of what I said resonated with him and that he could relate personally.
Overall I did the best I could and things are looking up. My contact in HR said things should move quickly as they want to fill the position ASAP. Thanks for the advice everyone! I will let you know what happens when I know.
Aside from wearing a Panther's polo since that is a given. (I kid)
I'm on the cusp of landing a job in the sports industry I have actively been pursuing for about two years now. For this particular position, as it is really a niche job within the industry that not many pursue, I believe my resume to be very strong as all of my internship experience and employment experience has been in the same field/department just with different teams and leagues. A couple connections I have made over the years know one of my interviewers personally and have put in a phone call or two on my behalf.
The interview consists of three 30 to 45 minute interviews each with a different executive within the company. The first with an HR Director, the second with a VP in the department I would be working in, and the third with another employee I would be working closely with in the same department. I guess my only real concern is fielding any obscure or random questions that I may struggle to answer off the top of my head. I'm prepared to discuss my resume and experiences, strengths and weaknesses, give a brief autobiography, and handle common interview questions. I just worry something may throw me off and get me flustered along the way.
I've always been a people person; able to talk to just about anyone and relate in some way. My attire will be appropriate and body language and eye contact not an issue. Would you recommend that I bring along a copy of my resume and pen and paper to take notes? Is it appropriate to have some notes already written down and bring them into the interview room with me so I don't forget anything I wish to mention?
