Google No Go

Ah well, my initial impression was accurate. I didn't come out of the second interview feeling like it was a great meeting of minds, and my impression wasn't wrong. I got a call back from Nina, the recruiter, she said that they'd decided not to move forward, based largely on my lack of background in media and sales. Okay. But sad now. I just got out of meeting not ten minutes before and was thinking to myself, "I don't see a place where I want to fit into this orgnization. I've really got to step up the job hunting and find a better fit." What I really want out of work is three very simple things:
- that it is challenging
- that I feel like I can do a good job
- that I feel like the work I do is appreciated
I don't see that happening in the Administrative Systems group at Stanford. So now the only question is go back to school and continue to coast career-wise here in this job, or go beat down a path career-wise? I guess the next 30 days will tell. Meanwhile, back to the job hunt, at least with a clear head that Google is off the table.


  • Sorry that the Google position didn't work out. Look around, you're a versitile person and hey, Google will have other positions open eventually as well.
