Ok so like many loyal GRex enthusiasts know, I had a first interview with a new company yesterday that went very well.
And the amount of preparation I did can only be described as a “shit ton.”
HOWEVER, that almost didn’t happen.
I’m a social guy. I have lots of friends and I like to see them. Earlier that day, I saw on FB that a friend “Vinny” was going to be in Manhattan, so we made plans for a cigar bar at 5:30pm or so. I was thinking that I’d do enough research on the company that afternoon to free up my evening.
4pm rolls around and “Vinny” cancels on me. No big deal. AND it gave me some time to research the company in different ways that I had earlier in the day.
AND as the interview progressed it was abundantly clear that the evening research made a huge difference in how I did.
