WSUOhWell

Well I finally got an interview, and didn’t do well at all.  Too many questions went back too many years, so my answers were not 100%…   Then, waiting to hear results, I got asked to come in for a presentation.  They wanted me to give a short presentation on a recent programming effort, along with documentation thereof.

I understood this position to be responsible for server management, so I was a bit confused to hear about a programming presentation.   It has been close to 15 years since I did any mainframe programming at WSU, and I certainly don’t have any related documentation.

So I emailed WSU a friendly “no thank you” and left it at that.  I truly hope they are happy with the other candidate they talked with.

I was at least partly relieved at this conclusion.  My life is quite full being a web consultant, and I don’t feel at all bad not going back to work at WSU.  No worries, mate.  Oh well…

    I’m actually happy for you. Sounds like WSU is pretty confused on what they want (among other things!). No need to return to that environment if you can make a living with your consulting. I just hope you will continue to support this impatient user long-distance!
