The perpetual jobseeker…


I am currently completing applications for BP and the Foreign Office in the search for a job – these are graduate programmes though, so I still need a stop cap in the mean time, but I haven’t had much luck on that front.

I did go to the job centre and picked up an application form for a temporary position with HMRC in an administrative capacity, and I also trawled through the local paper and Guardian job sections, finding a couple of potentials, for which I have emailed off for more information, so fingers crossed.

However, I have had a call from Reed Scientific about an application I made to work at the local Environment agency laboratory. I should hear tomorrow if they want me. There won’t be an interview, it will be an on the job assessment over a few weeks to see how I get on. Not my ideal job, but a job none the less.

On the plus side, good luck to Troë, TA and Clare with their new jobs, (I envy you, really I do!) and good luck to Adam, who joins me on the job hunt…

    Good luck! And as you say a job is a job. I do feel that maybe you have been a little picky since very few people fall into their ‘ideal job’ straight out of uni, employers appreciate experience too. So fingers crossed you join the rat race soon & then fingers crossed again for finding (and getting) your dream job! x

  2. How the feck did you manage all those?! I can’t seem to find a damn thing that doesn’t involve 3 years experience, a Cat2 licence or is in sales!

    I offically resign from the job hunt. The quest is now all yours.
