That was nice to hear since I interviewed so late. My interviewer practiced what I want to practice. Coincidence...probably. Good cafe food." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My interviewer asked me to start from the beginning...okay...luckily I had done some mock interviews to prepare for open-ended Qs. She wrote down everything I said so I didn't have to give her much eye contact. She was from New York, therefore pleasant and a little blunt if you come from Cali. New York is great. The New York caricatures in the movies bear resemblance to the actual people...funny accents." Report Response
