My 9-Hour Journey to Headphone Zone

My 9-Hour Journey to Headphone Zone
The day I landed my job at Headphone Zone will be forever etched in my memory. For me, it started out as just another Wednesday with nothing to look forward to and little did I know, the day was going to be anything but ordinary. When earlier last year I made the decision to switch my field of work, I wasn’t sure of what to expect but I knew that it was not going to be easy. For a long time, my days would be spent just scouring through and sending out applications to job postings on multiple sites.

However, nothing about my application and interview process with Headphone Zone was just “normal”. Early Wednesday morning, I came across the job posting for Headphone Zone on an Instagram ad. I spent the next hour or so looking through the website and reading everything about the team and the work they did. Needless to say, I was in awe. It was my ideal workspace. Now I know it’s true and not just falsely advertised. The Headphone Zone team is a bunch of young go-getters who love good music, food and the jobs that they do!

I spent some time filling up the application form on the page. I really wanted to grab their attention. I wasn’t just going to pass up on an opportunity to be able to work with this team. I finally submitted the application around 11:30 am. Usually, I would have to wait a couple of days before I would hear back from recruiters so I was genuinely very surprised when I got a call from the HR just a couple of hours later.

Around 3pm that day, I got a call from the HR. After a brief conversation, she told me that my application was shortlisted and that she would like to schedule an interview at my earliest convenience. When I told her I would be available anytime that week, she asked me if I could come down to the office that very same day.

My interview was scheduled at 5:30 pm. I was nervous. It’s mentioned on the website how their interview process is unique and sometimes it can just take hours. I was mentally preparing myself all the way to the office. When I think about it now, I don’t know what I was so nervous about because the entire thing felt like one long informal conversation.  I mean it when I say long, because my interview lasted almost 2 hours!

By 7:30pm that day, I had a new job. I was now a Visual Designer at Headphone Zone.

The interview might have been the longest one I’ve sat through so far but I know for sure, it will be the shortest recruitment process ever!
