An intervieW?

Follow-up to The perpetual jobseeker… from John's blog

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.

ReedBut, 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…

    I see you neglected to mention said companies namE. Fingers crossed you do get it though, as you’ll be closer to Warwick and i get to have endless typing fuN. Needless to say i think the job sounds exciting and noveL.
