Had a virtual interview last week which I think went well. Its a role I really want and the team seems awesome. I had asked how they maintain their culture virtually. The person who would be my direct manager showed me a photo of her team and how they have themed team meetings sometimes (the photo was everyone wearing a wacky hat). I’ve been overthinking about the interview because it’s something I really want. Does this seem like a good sign? Or was she just being friendly?

If there is one thing I have learned, is that sign interpretation is useless. Do your best and wait for the result, period. And always explore all your options... Do not stop your job search (if that is the case) because you think an interview went well. Don't get happy or sad, just wait. If it is a negative result, ask for feedback and move on


What would be a “good” answer for you to that question? I think that’s important to determine what you would want.

I think everyone is learning how to have a virtual culture. As time goes on I’ve seen what works and what doesn’t virtually. To me, a “wacky hat” meeting at least seems like they are trying.
