September 20, 2006
Ok, so to update, I have applied to one more job in the last fortnight, with an accountancy company in Exeter. But more importantly, I have had several interviews!
The first was with Jardine Lloyd Thompson in Exeter, working as a Pensions Administrator. I was recommended through one of the agencies I have joined. Anyway, I went for interview, and it lasted 2hrs 20 minutes. It was tiresome and boring, and after about 2hrs I had given up, and started to “umm,” “ahh” and nod in what I hope were the right places. I don’t think I’ll be offered the job, and if they do, I’m unlikely to take it.
The second interview was with the Inland Revenue in Newton Abbot, as an Administrator. I want this job, and the interview went very well I though. I arrived the specified 20 minutes before the interview, to fill in the forms that they required, before having a quick ten minute interview, with two questions, one on teamwork, one on organisational skills.
UPDATE: I have been offered the job at HMRC, starting on the 2nd Ocotber for 6 months. Wahey – I have a job at least!
