You know how you're supposed to sell yourself as much as you can in interviews, and one of the obvious interview no-nos is to never bring up the salary, holiday entitlement and benefits? Well, I just got back from an interview where towards the end, the panel themselves were bringing all these things up, gushing about the wonderful benefits, long holidays, amazingly friendly team and possible bonuses. I am not a mind reader, but to me that looks like a sign that I sold myself quite well.
Also, when I answered the 'What's your major weakness', they actually said they never heard a better answer to that question, ever! (I said that an apparent major weakness of mine is that I'm not British, which could be seen as a weakness in the UK, however as the role places such an emphasis on the international market, it can also be perceived as a strength. It's the best weakness I came up with so far because it's does not tell the company anything that they wouldn't already know - I can't exactly hide the fact I'm Czech :)).
Honestly, unless the person they were interviewing after me was Superman, the job has to be mine!
