I had a Chat with a recruiter from Rakuten this morning. He's very nice and warm. Talking with him is very relaxing, and being listened. Unlikely other HR I talked to, they are very criticizing.
Since my ex-colleague referred me, I think I will go to the next round soon. It's just that Tina is the hiring manager, so that I won't talk to her at the next round. They will find someone else.
Oop! I wish that someone else referred me instead. But it's fine, I'll have a chance to talk to other people and can understand more about the company and culture from different perspectives.
The interview will have 4 rounds. It's long. The most challenging one is Whiteboard. I’ve never done it before. And I'm scared of it. Let's see how.
Chat with Neal is the last interview this week. There are no more interviews so far. And the companies I have chatted with haven't replied to me. Maybe tomorrow. They usually send a failed email to applicants on Friday ☺️☺️☺️
OK. It's ok. I will do better next time. I can prepare better.
Ah, I need to do an annual personal review also. To reflect on what I did and how I felt about it. Lessons are more about reflecting on experience than experiencing it.
Who said that? Feel wise!
To be more correct, the full quote is from Sahil Bloom's newsletter.
