Yes that’s right!
Since the news yesterday about the potential work at the Environment Agency laboratory down the road, I’ve been hoping they wouldn’t call. Not that I would mind the job, I could certainly do it, but I don’t think I would enjoy it, and I have applied to jobs that I want to do more. Anyway, they haven’t called.
But, Ben from Reed Scientific called me this morning to tell me about a six month fixed-term contract with a company based in Oxford wanting a chemistry graduate. Well, he sent me the link to their website, looked around it and it seems quite an interesting company which is currently expanding. Anyway after a quick redraft of my CV, Ben sent it to the company who said they would like to see me for an interview.
UPDATE (15/09/06): Well, I still haven’t heard about the Oxford job, so I’m giving up on it.
UPDATE (18/09/06 – 11:00): Ben from Reed is setting up the interview for Thursday, around 14:00 ish.
UPDATE (18/09/06 – 17:30): No news to confirm day and time. This is getting stupid. If I’ve heard nothing by midday tomorrow, I’m emailing Ben to call the whole thing off!
UPDATE (19/09/06 – 15:00): Ok, I didn’t email Ben but I did comment on the ineptitude of this interview arrangement when he called. He’s confirmed Thursday afternoon for interview, at either 14:30 or 15:00 – he’s calling back to confirm – how long will it take him???
UPDATE (20/09/06 – 12:45): Right, there is now a time, a date and a place confirmed – even if it is very last minute, supid nonces. What’s more it only took Ben 21 hours and 45 minutes to get back to me! So tomorrow at 3pm, I have the interview…
