Amazing Job Interview Story
This is a true amazing job interview story.
With great excitment and concentration, I arrived at Toronto Pearson International Airport, way ahead of time (more than 3 hours before the flight).
I was very excited about the fact that the following day, I would be facing interviewers in Switzerland. It was an important appointment and I was well prepared. I had done my homework.
Little did I know that the journey would end up in great frustration.
But let's revert back. I presently myself to the check-in counter and to my great amazement, I was told that my ticket was not paid for and as a consequence, I could not check in.
But the good news was that the flight was not full and if I paid on the spot, everything would be fine. Unfortunately, I didn't have any limits on my card to purchase a ticket on the spot. All seemed lost.
Then, the check-in clerk suggested if I didn't know anybody that I could call to make the credit card payment. Then, I got the light. Off course, I knew somebody.
So I called my brother in law and he willingfully made the card payment.
All is finally well , isn't it? Well, not so fast!
I asked the clerk to check the payment and she was amazed. Wow. "It actually seems that payment has been finally made. It's strange. I'am not sure about this. I will need to get a confirmation from a senior manager. I don't want to take risks here"
And I waited, and waited and got angry and pleaded to no avail. After the boarding completed, I realized I would not take this flight, as a victim to bureaucracy. I was devastated and furious.
What a strange job interview story, right?
So, the following day, I had to call the hiring company to inform them. I had little hope there could be any positive outcome.
But a miracle happened!
They were very comprehensive and were willing to move the appointment to the next day.
Whew. A second chance.!
the next evening, no strange story with the airline. I boarded the plane and landed in Switzerland.
Then the second round of my amazing job interview story occured. My luggages didn't arrive. I had to wait in the queue and file a claim before leaving the airport.
As a consequence, I arrived late at the interview.
Don't feel sorry for me however because this unusual job interview story ended well. I was offered the job and moved to Switzerland.
A key takeaway for you is to not despair if for some reasons, things go bad before the interview. You can still make it!
