Job Interview 

So, Yesterday was the first of the two this week.
I didn't really fit the job description well but wrote the application anyway but didn't expect anything back. They invited me anyhow, although it was obvious I lacked some of the qualifications.

I was a bit too nervous in the beginning unfortunately but found my cool later. There were a couple of questions from the field which I wasn't able to answer completly but as it was so out of my field of expertise, expectable.

Also it was freaking hot and awful weather to have an interview.... thank god for the distancing part so they probably couldn't see the sweat running down my face......

Anyhow, just got off the phone. They revealed that they're not hiring one, but two people and I actually made it to third place. So if one of the two declines, they'd reach out.

She was a little apologetic on the phone but overall gave me good feedback and that's more than I expected.

What I really liked was that they at one point elaborated that they do not expect me to be able to do all of the things in the job description any time soon. That this is something that takes a long time to learn (lots of legal and technical stuff) and noone can just "do" that and there would be extensive job training.

So, that will at least help me in the future to be less cautious with applying to jobs where I have doubts about my fit and weather or not I could this.

@Virelai This is how lots of my interviews have gone! Interviewing “above my qualifications” is how I’ve been able to learn new skills on the job. :)
