Anonymous Interview Candidate

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Lycos in September 2011.

Interview Details – I was referred to this position and was set up pretty quickly for a phone screening. I spoke with someone in HR and some people from the group in which I would be working. The phone interviewed went so well that they wanted me to come in for an in person where I met with the same people who were on the phone.
Everyone was super nice and they definitely needed the help. The experience I was bringing seemed to be too advanced for what they needed as I was not offered the position. It was really confusing because I went from being a very strong candidate to no longer a candidate over night with no explanation. My previous work experience was exactly on par with what they needed and we seemed to have gotten along great in the interview.

There were no tough questions asked and at times I felt like I knew more about the job and industry than they did and was excited to talk, teach and learn. Basically the interview was a bit of a repeat of the phone call, just talking about experiences and skills using ad servers, analytics etc. A week and a half goes by and then was given the news, moving on!
