What are your general comments?

"I didn't come with a tour group since I work there. My first interviewer was late for approximately 20-25 minutes and I ended up chatting with his secretary. He looked bored and uninterested the whole time (basically had a closed appearance) so unconsciously I didn't feel like disclosing anything. He hurried me through my interview so I wouldn't be late for my second interview. I was still late. Fortunately for me, unfortunately for her, my next interviewer happened to be my boss' colleague which means indirectly my colleague as well and she had to hear me air plus/minus 25 years of my life. Whereas I talked too little in first interview I talked too much in the second one. After talking about collaborating in research with her I went back to work" Report Response
