Job Interview

Had my interview with the fuel cell company yesterday, and I think it went well. I was interviewed by one of their engineers rather than some H.R. drone, so all the questions stayed in the technical realm, instead of "Where do you see yourself in five years?" and that nonsense.

The company had been developing PEM fuel cells (hydrogen fueled), and they are beginning work on integrating them with engines. If I get the position, I'd probably start out in analysis, but I could well move into actually designing and helping putting them together, which would be very cool.

The said they were going to talk to one or two other people before they make a decision, but I got the impression they were looking at expanding, so there may be more openings in the near future.

It even turns out that I can reach the place on one bus (Mississauga Transit). It leaves Islington Station and drops me off right at the corner where the building is. The commute would only be about 5 minutes longer than my old one. I think this is a sign.

The only problem was with my dress suit. I haven't worn it in about five years, and it seems the pants have shrunk slightly in my closet. I have to hold it a bit most of the afternoon, so I glad to get back home.
