And I only worked 88 hours for NBCF, for the shameful record. 4 years ago
How I did it: I messed around, freaked out, did an internship to gain experience phone/communication/database/customer service skills, applied for 18 million things, sent 12 applications in a few hours, wrote a cheeky cover letter (please see attached), took my phone off silent for once, woke up to a call the next day, compensated for being asleep by being perky, got an interview, rocked their socks by being smug and vaguely competent, trained hard, wrote scripts, got perky, saved the children, and I'm soon to get paid! :D
I was supposed to finish on Friday but 100+ hours sounds so much better than 88.
It’s cool, though. I can say goodbye to some really neat people, and learn Russian from a new volunteer! :) 4 years ago
I started interning at the National Breast Cancer Foundation in Sydney just before Christmas. It’s alright. I like the feeling of being competent at something, and everyone there is extremely patient and helpful. I plan to work Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays throughout January, because if I’m after a glowing reference, is it quite a good place to clock in some hours.
Now to scab money off my mother to buy gorgeous office clothes! 4 years ago
to discuss and handle certain matters in a professional way, e.g. the question of whether I need to wear long-sleeve shirts and the possibility of continuing daytime therapy sessions.
TMI, yeah yeah. 4 years ago
They didn’t get back to me.
BUT it’s okay, because I want to work somewhere where I don’t need to wear make-up.
I’ve been going on about Woolworths for months but if I apply straight after exams (13th November) so as to beat the Christmas rush, I’ll never have another school holiday again! D: 4 years ago
