と言って退室したがものの3分で終わってしまい狐につままれたような感じだった。終わってみて何でこんなに短かったのだろうと非常不安に思ったが控え室でも誰とも話すことが出来なかったので不安のまま試験場を出た。
最初に試験官が言ったように質問はほぼ3問のみ。
もっと色々聞かれるかと思って構えていたのだが次の質問が来る前に終わってしまった。試験官の話すスピードも速く私も思わず同スピードで話してしまったので本当に一瞬で終わってしまった。今でもあれは夢ではなかったのかと思うほど。自分からもっと話題を提供すべきだったのだろうかと他の方のレポートを見て反省した。正直もっと話したかったのに終わってしまい、この面接で不合格だったら非常に心残り。予想外の早さに挨拶もそこそこで退室してしまったのも非常に悔やまれる。
