    Jackie Chan is a piece of shit, I'd never work for him. It was an interview for a full-time lecturership at a community college.

    Why? Because he is a walking penis and fucks anything that walks?
    But he has good work ethics though as the Hollywood and Hong Kong workers can testify and he did give all his money to his wife.

    Someone who has given many interviews once told me that the candidates themselves are terrible at evaluating their own performance at interviews. For example, it is often the case where if the candidate is doing well, interviewers will increase the difficulty of the questions, making the candidate feel as though they are doing poorly, and conversely if they aren't doing well, interviewers might just give them softball questions, making them feel they are doing better than they actually are. So the point is to just not let yourself get fazed and keep trying hard no matter how well/poorly you think the interviews are going.

    Er, thats not true. I have conducted some interviews myself and I was not told there is a need to make the interviewee go home feeling good about himself.

    If he is a fool and talks foolishly, we dont see the need to embarass him. Nor is there a need to make him look good.

    Yeah, not to mention how he pretends he has no son, because he didn't want to follow his dad's footsteps. He also promised that a lot of the proceeds of one of his recent Chinese movies would go to a Sichuan earthquake victim charity, but they never received anything.

    Dont know about that. I think he pretended not to be married and not to have any kids for many years but he admitted he was married years ago, of course his excuse is he is afraid his fans would commit suicide, knowing he is unavailable.

    Anyway, his parenting style is weird. He would blast his son for his acting, his kungfu, his singing, his movies, his girlfriend etc. This is his way of tough love even though his son is in his 20s. I think he even said he wont give any of his money to his son. But the son mentioned in an interview, that does not matter because his mom got all the money and his mom loves her only son.

    He does love his son because his son mentioned coming home one day and found a white glove in his house. The white glove is MJ's which Jackie paid alot in an auction.

    So .. had an interview this morning. Since the position is out of town (about 4 hours south of my current residence), the interview was over the phone. Interview was with the Director of the group, and with person making final decisions regarding staff (ie: not an initial screening interview). Good sign: concluded the interview with a scheduled day to plan an in person interview. Bad sign: I guess I gave the impression that, while interested in position I was interviewing for, I would be a better fit elsewhere in the company. Was asked if I would be interested in a position in a newly developed group - said "as a new grad, I am open and willing to explore all opportunities" .. so hope it works out [​IMG]

    It's not a matter of trying to make the candidate look good, it's that the interviews will start out easier and increase in difficulty, so they simply didn't make it to the harder questions.

    I'll find out exactly when the contract starts early next week, but they want me to go there for 2-3 days in early June to meet the old lecturer to ensure a smooth hand-off of responsibilites. Because of that, I'm guessing they may have me starting in July. It's unfortunate that I lose my 3 months of paid vacation at my job here, but it's for a worthy cause.

    I had a first round phone interview today.. at the end of it, i THINK (vaguely recall) the person said 'we'll definitely be in touch with regards to the next step'

    was he saying:
    a) you passed to the next round
    b) we'll let you know what happens next

    its the 'definitely' part that's throwing me off. were it not for that word, i would just assume b.
