As I’m sure you can guess, YouTube decided not to hire me. While it does make the moving away decision much easier (and everyone that wants us to stay here much happier), I still think that YouTube made a mistake on me.
I found out Monday April 26th, and the following morning I wrote out a 1200+ word post explaining why I thought I was a good fit (yeah, I definitely didn’t post that). While that might have made me feel a bit better, I’m sure that I’m the only person it would have helped.
Having had quite a bit of time to think about it, I still think that I would have fit well. I have been a web developer for almost a decade (their main interface is a website), I know programming in Adobe Flash really well (hello?), and I’m all about Python (the language their backend is written in). My only thought is that the interview process doesn’t do me justice.
Oh well, maybe I’m meant to stay in Lansing…
