starting new T search: T #1

Posted by pegasus on August 20, 2010, at 8:52:14

Hi guys,

I am starting a search for a new T, and I'm hoping maybe this could be a place to do some processing of the process, if you don't mind. I have four intro sessions scheduled with my selected candidates in the next two weeks. Yesterday I saw the first contender. Here are some impressions:

He's relatively formal (even said so himself). I like that he has analytical training. Kind of expensive. His office was rather blank slate-ish, which I didn't like. Or maybe he spends most of his time in his other office. It's right on street level, and I could see people going by on the sidewalk if I peeked through the slats on the blinds. His sessions are only 45 minutes (not good). Probably has very strict boundaries. He did this thing where he didn't look right at me when I was looking at him a lot of the time (was he trying to mirror me? Do I do that?), although there was plenty of direct eye contact as well. Not a lot of emotional warmth, but we connected in a sort of intellectual-feeling way. I left thinking, "He's probably not the right guy." But we did get into some pretty intense stuff about what was going on in the room, between the two of us, right away. That was intriguing.

This afternoon I see the second candidate. I'm interviewing only men, for some reason that I can't fully articulate right now.
