    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Merrill Lynch (Toronto, ON) in January 2008.

    Interview

    This company was only want to hire a very specific developer. Did not give people to grow. I got the feeling that they were trying to hire the person has exact knowledge and do the project and then let him go.
    I got the interview because my resume had specific key word they are looking for. But it turned out what I did on that platform is not the same part they are using. They immediately turn me down.
    So I took 2 days to prepare the interview and the result come so quick in just about 10 mins.
    The interviewer is nice, but the I don't feel get respected in the process.

    nice and easy. just have to let it out of your throat. the first 5minutes you were thrilled by the intense of this interview but as time goes if you present yourself in a great manner it'll be easier to let the words out of your mouth. and that's of course be there and prepared! nothing comes out easy when you're not being ready for the things you love or desire, right~
