You will get the job. Everyone gets the job. I was vacationing, I had gone to the beach, had some cocktails and when I got home, I went on craigslist. I saw the add, sent an e-mail with the resume. I didn't expect to hear from then 10 minutes later! (that should have been my first clue). Therefore, I was on the phone doing the first interview while tipsy! The vocabulary test was 2 days later, nothing crazy or too difficult. I got an offer the next day. It's a very easy process and when you start working there, you will see why. You will meet people from other cultures, learn so much and you can use it if you want to make a career out of it. Those are the only good things I can say. I wish you luck! Less
