  1. I’ve already had a phone interview for the Wiley job, and I am doing the follow-up video interview in a bit! I didn’t even think I would get this far as this was just a speculative application. Apparently, if I pass the video interview stage, the next stage is an assessment day at the end of the month with the other applicants, and one of the things that we’ll do is interview one another! 😮
