My job update: Interviews one and two

Follow-up to An intervieW? from John's blog

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!

Interview One
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.

Interview Two
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!

    Am I being dumb – HMRC?

    HM Revenue & Customs. Although I don’t know why I have offered my services to you given that you have commented (all be it pathetically!) on johns blog and NOT on mine!

    Congratulations John! One of the British Workforce at long last! Yay for you!

    Ah-ha! Of course! (I have commented now t-a!) So you accepted I take it? Does this mean that you’ll be able to buy t-a a present other than her national trust membership?! x
