Based On Merit?

It was the 2nd stage of the interview process, and those of us that made it past the 1st stage sat together waiting to be called upon for the interview. A lot of chit-chat was going on, especially as we reviewed the questions that were set at the first stage.

Then someone said, “I heard from an insider that they are taking only 6 people – 2 experienced, 4 fresh graduates”.

I scanned the waiting room. There were 20 of us under the “experienced” category while the fresh graduates were about 10. Which 2 will they take out of the 20? I wondered. While I was yet wondering and hoping, one guy said, 'even if it is one person they are taking, I will be the one!'
