It's that time of year again folks. The careers fairs are in town.
As a seasoned professional, with three previous years experience under my belt this years careers fair was to be a masterful stroke of preparation and execution.
The objective, collect as much free stuff as possible and talk only to those people of interest.
So, hunting in pairs we moved in. After spending twenty quick minutes on the first visit we had managed to collect:
Many many pens…...mmmm…..pens
Two packets of mints
An inflatable pillow
A box containing a coffee and tea kit with cereal bar
A mars bar
A glow stick!!! – Lloyds TSB win the best freebie award
The mars stand had cat food, snickers, maltesers, quick pasta and loads of other stuff. But I didn't feel that greedy.
Then, after the once round a later visit put pay to the fun of earlier on. As a finalist, in need of a job, it was time to do the serious bit as the careers fair for the first time took on its proper purpose. Curses, the real world awaits.
Tomorrow, we go again. More free stuff ahoy!
