goddamn I'm pissed.
called a guy back today who said he had some questions about my resume which was on his desk.
I called back thinking I'd clarify a few points and get an in with [said company].

Guy pulls a fucking technical interview on the phone, which i was 100% unprepared for.
He said he'll forward my resume to their helpdesk people.

GODDAMNIT! I KNOW THIS STUFF!

fucking thesis rotted my brain.
I mean come on, how could I forget what DNS and WINS stand for? and forward and reverse lookup just stalled in my brain because it was totally out of the blue.
mood: pissed offpissed off
music: front 242 - modern angel

(1 bit of drivel | babble incoherently)

My consolations. I got this technical phone interview thing pulled on me once. I was asked what SCSI stood for. I said, "Small Computer... uh... Something Interface" while pulling out my hair at having forgotten what I knew was a perfectly common noun.

"So you don't know what SCSI is?"
"Oh, sure, I know what it is." I deliver a mini-speech on the various flavors and their relative speeds, daisy-chaining capabilities, histories, when SCSI is advisable and when it's overkill, etc.
"So what does it stand for?"
"Small Computer... Something Interface. I'm sorry, I know it's silly, but that word's just slipped my mind.."
"So you don't know what SCSI is. Well, let's try the next question, then."
goddamn I'm pissed. called a guy back today who said he had some… - another LJ. or: how i learned to stop worrying and love this life-thingy
