Almost there...

Thursday, June 23, 2005


Just got done with a phone interview at Google for an Agency Training Specialist job. The recruiter is going to pass me up stream. Hooray!!! I would really dearly love this job. It sounds like such a perfect fit. The odds are against me - I don't have specific experience training sales people previously. But I've done a lot of training ranging from new recruits to grumpy users fighting a change, so the sales people don't especially intimidate me. It would involve some travel (20-30%), but not too much. (In fact, it sounds like the perfect amount - just enough to soothe my gypsy feet without having to live out of a black 22') And I'd be training people in a classroom at least twice a month. She didn't completely freak about my salary (whew!) and I think I did alright, not saying too many totally wrong things. So it's still likely that someone with 8-10 years of experience training sales people will beat me for the job, but just making it this far feels really good. I'm diving back into the HelpSU queue with a relish I've not had for several weeks. Help people? Sure! I love to help. Wheeeeee!


  • Sales people are like other people. If you show that you have taught a lot of people including onery people I'm sure you'll do fine.

  • Good luck! The thing is, we all know you can do's just a matter of getting in the door to talk to these people so that they can see how sharp you really are. Training, as chris said, is all about dealing with people. The specifics of what you are teaching are less important than the ability.

  • Oh trust me Flonk, I know I could do the job, and do it well. Training/teaching is my specialty. Where most people fear public speaking and standing in front of a group, it gives me energy. I could teach anyone anything as long as I know what I'm talking about.

    Please Google, give me wings to fly!
