Scenario 3 -- the Interview, part 3


Before we begin…

God does not ask your ability or your inability. He asks only your availability. – Mary Kay Ash (founder of Mary Kay Cosmetics) 


Read the following scenario, completing the session questions where indicated. Be prepared to discuss your answers with others. 


This is a continuation of the last scenario. Here is a quick recap:

      You have a job interview with a great company.


      Due to things out of your control, you run late to the interview.


      By accident you knock Mrs. Smith to the ground in the crosswalk outside the office building.


      Mrs. Smith is the person you have the interview with.


      You were asked to wait quite a while in a conference room.


      Thirty minutes of waiting later, Mrs. Smith enters the conference room.


      Mrs. Smith explains that the first portion of the interview is to wait for 30 minutes by yourself to test your patience.



Despite having a rough start, the interview goes very well. You feel you answer each of Mrs. Smith’s questions relatively well, judging by her reactions and pleasant nature. By the end of the standard interview process you feel very confident and even make a few funny comments that, thankfully, Mrs. Smith seems to enjoy. 

Mrs. Smith continues, “As you know, DGU has a number of divisions, so we need many different skill sets. What type of position are you hoping to work your way into? Where would you like to be in the next five years?”

Have you ever had an interview that seemed to go this well? Why or why not?
