When this week kicked off, I had a job interview scheduled for this afternoon. This opportunity was a bit out of my comfort zone, but I truly was looking forward to it. I like challenges.
Monday, phone call with the recruiter to go over a couple of items to help improve my success when meeting with these folks. Fortunately, the recruiter forwarded me the profile information for the individuals I was scheduled to meet.
Tuesday, I was out and about taking care of things. The recruiter calls my home phone, not once, but twice in a four hour period. They were smart enough to email me as well, as I am not so good at answering the telephone unless we have scheduled something.
Bottom line, they want to re-schedule the interview for next week. Fine, sure, whatever. I really am interested in doing this interview. We have re-scheduled. I think I might like this job.
Now there’s a qualified statement for you. How am I supposed to know? I have not been forwarded an explicit job description from anyone – not the recruiter nor the client.
The reason I want to do this interview is to be ‘there’. This is not a basic, back-office job with a major corporation doing business-as-usual production. They are new. They produce tangible products. They deal with mundane issues. They are exceeding and their growth curve is phenomenal!
The bulk of my career has been in software-as-a-service products. I haven’t done serious erp in almost 20 years. Supply chain for me meant meeting QoS guidelines. It would be fun apply those principles to actual, physical products. To have the opportunity to participate in the creative process from beginning to end!
Maybe what I need to do is continue developing the definition of what a scrum master does or could do within this company and share it with this particular recruiter?
