The Story Behind #113: Koalafications

While drawing this comic I decided to do a little research into how many rounds of interviews I've been through in my career. Unfortunately, my email only goes back to 2007; so I can't quantify anything before that. However, from 2007 to 2019 I have been through 38 sets of technical interviews across just as many companies. Almost every interview set consists of an initial phone screen, varying degrees of technical discussions (or hazings) and a chat with management for personality or culture fit and finally, hopefully, a yes or no answer; although I have noticed a trend in the past few years of companies just ghosting their candidates.

The most important thing I've learned after all of these interviews is that interviewing can be extremely stressful and, I am not alone when I say I do not enjoy technical interviews.

A big part of taleas’ stuff is hand made, hand printed, hand stitched, hand sewn, hand glued or some combination of the above in Austin, Texas. I have a strong passion for solid business ethics, scalability, sustainability, and repeatability, and all of these drive the quality of products that I offer.
