As you have actually probably guessed (by me writing this post) I did do well in my preliminary interview for the real-time conversation task. I was invited to the following stage of the application process– a telephone meeting with Amy and also among The Conversation Shop’s Co-Founders, Joe.

This is the last stage of their employment process and also I was proud that I had actually got this far but I was additionally extremely worried! Luckily the telephone interview was not as scary as I when assumed as well as it was more casual than official.

I obtained inquired about my pastimes, what I such as to do in my extra time and also a couple of questions about the Live Conversation Representative placement. I additionally had some feedback on my ‘Live Conversation Meeting’, which was fantastic to hear.
