Zadnje dvije sedmice sam imao seriju intervjuisanja za novi posao. Vec dugo vremena sam bio zainteresovan za konsulting poslove software inzinjera za koje treba putovati od ponedeljka do cetvrtka, i petkom se radi od kuce.
Sutra putujem u Toronto (iako je kompanija iz USA) da se nadjem sa dva menadzera, i tu ce mi objasniti sve detalje, a najvjerovatnije i dati konkretnu ponudu. Svrha ovog puta je da i ja budem siguran da je ovaj novi posao nesto sto mi se svidja i da cu biti veoma zadovoljan pozicijom (tj. da necu biti razocaran i naci nesto novo nakon par mjeseci).
Pravim listu pitanja koja cu pitati oba menadzera i evo te liste (vecinu sam nasao na internetu). Svaki savjet je dobro dosao! Narocito me zanimaju pitanja u vezi putovanja.
