    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Orange County Government, Florida.

    Interview

    The interview was almost 2 hours. They make you do a presentation in front of 4 Enterprise Directors. You prepare for a month for it and they end up overlooking your years of IT experience and hire the rookie that just graduated UCF. This is going to be my 3rd attempt to interview and they completely ignore your qualifications, your drive and your professionalism and they keep choosing their person of interest.

    Interview

    After closing of the posted position, the initial communication to schedule an interview was quick and professional. The interview timeframe was scheduled by email. The interview was surprisingly easy for the level of work requested, half technical, half situational, so offer as much dialog as possible. It took at least 4 weeks to hear back on the job offered. Orientation is only twice a month, so request that you get the earliest orientation possible, otherwise you could wait another 2 weeks to start the position.
