After 14 interviews for 12 jobs (4 in the last week) and about 100 applications, I have finally being offfered a job, working for a company I want to work for, with a better salary and better hours than I had at my last job, in the centre of town so easy to get to, and with lots of scope for progression. I start on Monday.
I am so so happy and unbelievabily relieved.
So many of my goals are sort of on hold until this is done. It’s a bit annoying, and I did think about temporarily ‘giving up’ those goals but its over half of my list so I don’t really want to.
Two more interviews lined up. On the 12th and 15th Jan. Both excellent companies to work for.
Also job seekers and insurance claim are both being processed so I’m keeping on top of things.
Today is my first official day of unemployment. I have to register for job seekers allowance, make an appointment with Job Centre Plus and send off my claim form for my mortgage insurance. I will be so so glad when this is all done, hopefully I will be able to relax a bit over Xmas then.
Got another interview on Monday. My favourite role so far, please let this be the one and so I can be sorted and relaxed over Christmas.
Well I think it has got to the point where I need to start to claim on my mortgage insurance. I phoned up today and they explained all the stuff I would need to supply for it, I shouldn’t have been surprised but I was, I can’t believe I didn’t realise and that I hadn’t started the process earlier, I feel so stupid, and now it’s going to take ages before there is any pay out from it.
Had an interview on Friday, think it went well. Should here by Wednesday if I have been shortlisted to meet the directors.
Didn’t get job from Monday, they didn’t even call to let me know, they said they would be letting people who were unsucessful know ‘in the pipeine…’ erm, I suppose that means I’ll recieve a letter in a couple of weeks but I think that is really rude, I’ve never not been called to let me know the outcome before.
I didn’t get the job from Wednesday. They said I seemed too ambitious which is really unfair because they asked me how I saw myself in the future and I said with more experience probably working on a higher level. What else could I say???
I know people are trying to be helpful with their feedback but it’s not really. So far I have been told I’m not experienced enough, I’m too experienced, I was perfect except someone else had the edge and now I’m too ambitious! All stuff I can’t really do anything about. Arrgggh
I have two more interviews lined up!!
One on Wednesday for a big retail company doing financial admin with a 25% discount at all the high street shops under their umberella.
Other is a week Monday, for a childrens charity, as the office admnistrator. This one would be perfect except it is in the next town and so is a really long (three buses) commute. Trying to work out if it will be worth the travelling??
