I was browsing the employment website a few days ago and I noted that it was still advertised. Last night I hurriedly finished the selection criteria and zipped it off. I got a call this afternoon. They want to interview me. Tomorrow. But I'm not sure I want to take the job, for the following reasons.
- The guy who pre-interviewed me seemed to be picking holes in my application. i.e. I had the wrong date on the cover letter (it was from a template whoops). Also when he asked if I preferred 'phish' to 'phishez', I responded 'phish' and he commented that I had signed off 'phishez'.
- My resume isn't impressive enough to warrant next day interviewing. Its good, but its not exactly what they're after.
- He asked when I would be able to start. The person they are replacing is leaving in three weeks. I don't want to go into a job because I'm the only option, especially if its not going to work out and I'm going to be unemployed in three months. I might hate my job at the moment, but I still have some wonderful co-workers (Green Eyes and the Gal Pal), and its stable. I know I'll have that job until I choose to leave.
I got this award from Ingsoc.
I choose to do something different. I WILL pass this one on (to three people, as is required) for once. I choose a few relatively new bloggers. Well, new to me anyways. They are (in no particular order)
