A new client is on the horizon. There is initial contact via email, phone, message or whatever it might be outlining in very broad terms what they’re after. You meet in person either at their office or over a casual cup of coffee and discuss the project in more detail. A lot can be learned from this meeting not just of the project but of the client you will potentially be working with.
I was advised that my last blog post was a bit of a downer and on inspection perhaps it doesn’t reflect entirely where things are at the moment.

This week we celebrate our first birthday. Aw so cute!

Have you any questions for us? How many times have you heard that? You recognise it? It’s that standard finishing the interview scenario. The balance of power shifts somewhat and now you are asking questions of the interviewer. It’s invigorating right, that relief and sudden gain of control somewhat? I always liked this part of the interview. Instantly I’d feel my body relax and then I’d hit them with one of my favourites, the killer question, as I like to call it.
