I wonder if I'm still feeling burned out (and yes, burned) by my experiences at AV. If so, I wonder if I will always feel this way. I feel like I need a really good work situation, the kind where the company is doing really well, there is a good roadmap for the company's success, everyone buys into it, and if there are problems it's possible to air them out in such a way that everyone's needs are met and progress can continue to be made.
I heard back from the InfiniBand people at Cisco. They want me to come back for another interview with two other members of the group on Wednesday. So I've been trying to go over some things that tripped me up in past interviews. However, I'm still feeling kind of vulnerable about the whole thing, like there are still lots of ways that I could be stumped by interview questions and there's not much I can do about it, practically speaking.
