    Got a call back for a second interview for a position of 1st Line Support. First interview was with the 1st Line Support manager and the main IT manager, agency says 2nd interview will be with the board member. Any idea what i can expect from the board member interms of questions? Agency guy says i'm the only guy to be asked back again for a 2nd interview so far so very optimistic, especially since it's a role that could help me attain both the experience for an mcse/mcsa but also the certs as well.

    I imagine less technical and about your ability to sell yourself. Perhaps questions about the company, prioritisation of jobs, where you see yourself in the future and tell me about yourself questions

    good luck pal!

    I'd recommend you don't worry too much about this 2nd interview; my 2nd interview turned out to be them offering me the job and sorting out the contract :D Show them that you can be a part of the team and great to work with!

    Good luck. I think ive only had one 2nd interview and it was basically a repeat of the first to iron out any considerations they might or might not have had.

    lol, i'm going through the a+ so much easier than the mcdst as it's stuff in there that i've done for years and have a lot of hands on experience. The hard part is when i start hitting stuff like the mcsa and mcse stuff dealing with server2003, exchange and active directory.
