Google 2nd Phone Interview

Oy. Never interview on a Monday. I feel like I flubbed it this time. Oh well. We'll see if they call back again.

If not, I've got a plan here at Stanford. No, the plan I had last week didn't work out. The queue sucked my soul and my time away and I got little else done. And this week is all going to be about the queue because Jo-Ann is on vacation and I'm covering HR, SA, and Workflow by myself. So plan A? Yeah, not so much. But that's okay. I'll get back on that horse soon, because I had another major brainstorm.

The basic problem I'm having at Stanford is that I'm feeling like I've learned what there is to learn in my current role, and the work is basically redundant. I thrive on having something more to learn and something to challenge me to work better and faster.

So what if that learning wasn't at work? What if I went back to school? I'm looking at taking the GMAT before the September 15th deadline for application to the San Jose State MBA program. If accepted, I could start that in the Spring term. And wouldn't that be interesting? It would also be dependent on staying here in my current role which I can do without any special burden, usually in 8 hours a day.

That leaves me in a decent position. If Google calls back, then hooray! I get the job of my dreams. If not, I stay put and try to dive back into learning from a different angle. Either way, it's all good.

  • I'm considering Grad school as well. I'm looking at the Public Policy program at Berkeley. That would be the GRE rather than the GMAT for me.
