Janus Phone Interview, Round 2

I just had my second phone interview with the Senior Director of Portfolio Analytics for Small to Mid-Cap funds. I think it went well. First, he went down my resume and asked specific questions about jobs on the resume. Next, he asked me about myself and how I got to where I am today, as well as where I want to go with my career. He asked me about any securities I follow. I talked to him about Chattem (CHTT), what I observed and where I thought it was going. He seemed rather unimpressed and wanted to know what kind of modeling I had done for the stock. I tried to spin something out of what I had done, but in the end I felt I had answered his question inadequately.

Then he asked me what questions I had and I kinda ripped into him and asked a ton of questions about the position and the firm. I don't know if this was good or bad.

He made the position sound like it is more of an IB type of analyst and said that there is little direction from the group for what this position will entail. He also made it sound like they would want me to start in January. I am a little uneasy about a full-time job on top of being a full-time student. I am sure I can make it work though. But hey, this is the first round of interviews I have had so I think that if this is as far as I get, I've done alright.
