I didn't get a phone interview, I had an advisor from an office in my city call me and ask for me to come in....does that mean i skip the phone interviews?  any advice?

Yeah ... make sure you're still breathing. Don't take a crap in his waiting area.



You should do fine.

I still think you have the phone interview.

If he asks you for something to drink say no...Because that is the beginning

If the drink question is followed by the sound of a zipper walk out quickly !!

I think EDJ is actually bypassing the whole "hiring process" going forward because they realize it just isn't necessary.

It means he wants you as a client. Take your statements with you.

 
Haha

my process didn't go as directed by the packet or website....

I think its a "whatever fits" deal to save on costs and schedule time better. From what i'm told, the next class enters this october and i'm at the last stage, face to face and surveys. I've been in the process for almost 2 weeks now and won't get an offer for another 1-2 weeks. If given one.

You'll have to go through the phone screen, phone interview, and face 2 face interview with an RL advisor.

Here is some ideas for your face to face.....
 
Tell me about your greatest success? How did you make that happen?
Tell me about your biggest failure? What did you learn?
What are you most proud of?
What is your biggest strength and why?
What is your biggest weakness and why?

Thanks noggin - those were good questions i needed to think about for a minute.

 
and to everyone else - thanks, I will be sure to not ask for any kool-aid, have my statements on hand, and drink a redbull so my pulse is kicking when I walk in the door :-)  I already have a job but it never hurts to hear what they have to say!  Maybe it'll be more worthwhile than where I'm at...

I didn't meet my RL until the welcome dinner..

I can't stress enough. If you hear the sound of a zipper coming down run quickly.

What Ron is not telling you is that he ran TOWARDS the sound of the zipper.

Exactly because that is where he told me the kool aid would come from !!!
