What are your general comments?

"The interview went well. I was a little nervous, but more anxious than nervous. There’s a subtle difference. The interviewers were all nice, relaxed, and asked appropriate questions. I have a non-traditional back ground; hence many questions probed elements of my experience. I didn’t get any “if you were a tree what would you be” type questions. I absolutely felt they were trying to get to know me. " Report Response
