Phone Interview

IYA SANTOS (me, you fool)

Applicant for CSR post

blah blah blah company background, basic info blah blah blah

Me: Are you already a college graduate?
Mina: No, ma’am. I only reached up to 4th year college. I took up Nursing from Perpetual Help College of Manila.
Me: PHCM? Really?
Mina: Yes, ma’am.
Me: Nera, Nera, Nera… were you class president?
Mina: Yes, ma’am… how’d you…
Me: I think you were my student…
Mina: OMG!!! Ma’am Iya!!!!!

yada yada yada positive qualities, pronunciation exercises yada yada yada

Me: That concludes the initial interview. Congratulations, you passed! I’d like to invite you for the next step which is the verbal assessment. Would you be available tomorrow? If so, what time?
Mina: Morning ma’am, 9:00.
Me: Haha, are you sure you can make it 9? You were always late for class then…
Mina: Hahaha, I promise not to be late tomorrow, ma’am!

How astig is that? I interviewed and qualifiedΒ a former student and I’m seeing her tomorrow for the VA. I’ll whack her with the IELTS module if she fails tomorrow’s exam.

I shouldn’t be worried. I taught her well. πŸ˜‰
