benim de epey faydalandigim bir baslik oldu gercekten, sorulabilecek sorularin hemen hemen hepsi mevcut. yalniz ben ek olarak interview tecrubemi paylasayim sizlerle. hatta sirayla yazayim:
- gorusme mailinde hastaneye yakin ucuz oteller icin bir liste de vardi ve hastaneye yakin bir yer ayarladim, sorun olmadi.
- gorusmeden bir gun once pre interview party denilen ve bolum asistanlari ile basvuranlarin katildigi toplanti gibi ama partimtrak bir uygulamalari vardi. buna katilmak onemli cunku interview'a asistanlardan birisi de katiliyor. issiz gucsuz oldugum icin katildim tabi ama zaman sorunum olsaydi da bir sekilde ayarlar ve katilirdim. hem tanismak hem de asistana aklimiza gelen sorulari sormak onemli birsey. herkes cok kibardi, yardimciydi, guleryuzluydu.
- gorusme gunu ise sabahin 7'sinde baslayip oglen 2 gibi bitti. sabah erkenden kalkip dedikleri yere gittim, once kahvalti oldu, sonra kisa bir sunum yapildi. sunumdan sonra ise her bir candidate'in farkli bir schedule' i var, mesela benimkisi interview- tour- interview - interview seklindeydi. ama dedigim gibi ornegin ben tour yaparken bir baskasi interview yapiyordu ve kimin hangi hocaya dustugu ise tamamen randomizeydi. burada ayrica belirtmem gereken bir durum var mesela turk hoca varsa sizin interview'a giremiyor, ayni sekilde hintli hoca da hintli candidate'in interview'ina giremiyor. diger kurumlarda farkli olabilir ama burada boyleydi.
- ilk interview program direktoru ile birebir, ikincisi ise bir baska hoca ve yanindaki resident ile oldu. peki ortam nasildi derseniz, tamamen sohbet havasindaydi, hani arada cay icsek sanki kafede oturup geyik yapiyormusuz gibi, o derece rahat ve sakin bir ortamdi.
- ilk ve en meshur soruyla basladik tabi: tell me about yourself. kompleks gibi gorunmekle beraber aslinda kisaca neden orada oldugunuzu anlatmaniz yeterli bence, sonrasi yine klasik sorular neden abd? neden bizim bolum? cevabiniz hazir olmali bunlar icin, iiiii miiiii demeden direkt ve akici bir sekilde konusmak lazim cunku adamlar kem kum eden biri yerine seriye baglamis ve ne istedigini bilen birilerini gormeyi bekliyorlar. isin ilginc yani her iki hoca da bana ayni seyi sordu: madem uzmansin neden bir daha asistanlik yapmak istiyorsun? sana gore belki daha az tecrubeli birisi senden hiyerarsik olarak ustte olacak sorun olacagini dusunuyor musun? fellowluga neden basvurmadin? yani adamlar kisacasi ne ayaksin sen diye soruyor. tabi bunlar cakal sorular, ben de egosu yuksek biri degilim-ki gercekten de oyle- oyle olsam burada isim olmazdi, ogrenmeye ve bildiklerimi revize etmeye, eksiklerimi kapatmaya geldim dedim vs. yuz ifadelerinden tatmin olduklarina dair izlenim elde ettim tabi ama gelecek ne getirir bilmiyorum, ret yiyebilirim yani...
her bir interview 20 dk kadar surdu, en son interview ise chairman tarafindan geldiginiz icin tesekkur ederiz babinda gostermelik ve 2 dk lik bir interview'di.
sonuc ne olur bilmiyorum ama ne olursa olsun guzel bir tecrubeydi arkadaslar.

gerçekten çok güzel bir paylaşım olmuş.
sorulara şöyle bir göz attım.ama ne yazık ki çoğuna cevap vermekte zorlandım hatta bazılarına cevap bile veremedim.çok kişisel ve şaşırtıcı sorular var.galiba mülakattan önce insanın önce kendine doğru ufak bir yolculuğa çıkması gerekiyor :)
