My job update: Interviews three and four

Follow-up to My job update: Interviews one and two from John's blog

Interview Three
Interview three was on Thursday, with the chenical company in Malton, Oxfordshire. Eventually it was organised for 3pm, having been ‘being’ organised for a fortnight. It turns out (from what I made of the interview) that I was not what they were looking for. They wanted an organic chemist, and I am very much a physical chemist. I hadn’t much of a clue about the organic chemistry questions I was asked. Oh well.

Interview Four
Interview four was yesterday, for the position of Audit assistant, with the council. I think it wen’t quite well. There was a 30 minute IT test on Microsoft Word and Excel, followed by a 30 minute interview. The questions were pretty standard, and I think I came across well. I should hear from them on Monday.

UPDATE (26/09/06): I was unsuccessful with the council interview. I was very close, but pipped by someone who already worked at the council, and new their finance systems better. So really, they already had someone in mind for the role, but had to advertise it. Oh well.
