Hi All,
i am working in a company as an internee, my internship is getting over in 3 months.
Few days back my group manger called me and asked me some formal questions in a casual way (ie. how's you doing, what work you are currently working on etc etc.), he also told me objective for today's meeting is that we are planning to make you
an employee and let's have a formal round of interview some day in mid of april.
he also met me with manager of some other team, that team actually has some requirements,
this manager asked me last weak that he wanted to talk to me, i had a meeting that time so he told me that we will talk tomorrow, but so far he didn't talked to me.

my question is should i ping him and ask him that "you wanted to talk to me, we can talk now" or should i wait?

First.. congratulations! That sounds exciting. It sounds like they like you and are setting you up for a successful round of interviews.

By all means, yes.. ping him. There is nothing wrong with being respectfully forward.

And when speaking with them, let them know you are excited about the prospects and ask them what you can do to improve your chances and give them the best interview possible.. They will guide you.

Thanks Matthew Moran
yes i am kinda excited ;)
the reason i was not asking them myself is it shows excitement to them, and i was thinking that it may create wrong impression towards me.
Thanks for the clarification.

That's interesting. I wonder why we (it is sort of common) do not want to show excitement over an opportunity?

If you were an employer, wouldn't you want the person you are going to hire to be excited?

What if you simply told them, "I'm really excited about this opportunity and working here." Do you think that would be a bad thing?

I'm inclined to believe that it speaks well of someone rather than painting a bad impression. Just something to think about.
