I mentioned Avatar at my job interview!
« on: February 21, 2012, 01:19:15 am »
Sorry if this is not the right place for this.

I just have to brag a little! So, Friday 2-17-12 I had a job interview to be a community assistant (CA) on my campus next year. Surprisingly, I was able to answer many of the questions asked with Avatar-related things. I.E. they asked my to describe a time when I led a group and was successful and how everyone else responded to my leadership: my Na'vi class. They asked me to describe a time when I worked as part of a team to accomplish something and what the outcome was and how well I worked with everyone: the Avatar Meet planning team. I was so surprised after I left and realized what I had done. I think I'm the only person in the community who can say that he has officially used Avatar and related things as past experience for a job interview! <-- I will forever hold bragging rights to that lol.

Well that's my story :)

Nobody can say that Avatar isn't useful anymore.  ;D
Are you accepted for the job?

At some point in the future (when I've become more fluent with Japanese and Na'vi) I am TOTALLY going to put down on my resume that I am trilingual. XD XD

Well I have an update: I sadly did not get the job. I have been placed on the 'alternate list' which means I'll be among the first people considered IF a position becomes available. But yeah...that's what's up for now. Tho I can still say that I've used Avatar and related things as pat experience for a job interview :)

VERY SAD ONLY.
Unless you consider the that Learn Na'vi and Avatar have added to your skill-set for job applications.
May your next interviewer find favor in you!

Fì'u or Fì'uri work. Furia and Futa wouldn't be appropriate.

They probably picked the Klingon speaker over you....  ::)

Seriously, I hope you do get a job where your Ávatar experince' means something.

For being able to use AVATAR stuff in a job interview: "You lucky swine." :P

For not getting the job: "Very sad only." :(
