Now I’m the first to admit that I’m a pretty well-travelled echidna. Just in the last year, I have been to France, Italy, Ireland, New Zealand and Japan. My next travel adventure however, is going to be something special!
That’s right: Space!
Now I have to admit I was pretty nervous going in to the interview and there were quite a few other hopeful echidna competing against me.
The key to any interview is to project an air of confidence, even if you don’t actually feel it.
I did have one advantage in that I had worked with David Brooks (the man conducting the interviews) on several projects in the past.
This helped calm my nerves a lot!
I took my time and thought carefully about my answers, making special effort not to ‘geek out’ over the idea of going into space, but also convey a sense of enthusiasm about the project.
I think I did well, hopefully I will hear something in the next few days.
