no LEGO for me

 - how small I felt facing the smiling heads of the large than large evil corporation -

So a couple of weeks ago I went to a job interview at LEGO for a position as 3D graphics artist. Finally my first interview since graduating in February. I was the first they had called in, so obviously the job was as good as mine - really wasn't. They had plenty of candidates to pick from and not only from here in Denmark but from all around the great wide world - I blame the ongoing economic crisis. On top of that it seemed like they wanted someone who also could animate. Both a CG artist and an Animator all wrapped up nicely with a little bow on top. Trying to bypass this minor problem I assured them that I was capable of setting key frames - and willing to learn more - back on track this is where(in my opinion) it all went south. I was asked the relative simple (and I assume normal for a job interview) question; "describe yourself" - using a few buzz or keywords they wanted me to It shouldn't be that difficult right? - but what followed can best be described as a series of sounds rather than words (uhh, uhmm, etc.) it wasn't pretty :)

Naturally I waited, and hoped for a second interview, but alas it was not to be. So now I shall continue my search for my second ever job interview ( and next time I will come prepared, carrying a cheat-sheet filled with buzz words to describe myself. )
