    Default ive got an interview

    I had a wee look through trade me jobs and saw this position for a carer and no experience.
    i thought might as well apply,nothing to lose.
    I explained i had no references or even a cv as id been a stay at home mum for yrs.
    Anyhoo got a phone call there from a lovely lady there who understood my accent,with no probs whatsoever. Even though ive got the cold and a sore throat
    She has invited me to her home next friday,to meet me.
    She sounded really easy going and good to get on with,which made me feel better,as i hadnt done this kind of thing for a very long time,so no confidence at all.
    But nope she was brill
    Im really looking forward to meeting her
    and the pay is good
    Only thing is ive got a terrible lack of direction. im not even confident in driving over here yet.
    But hubby said he will take me over that way for a couple practice runs,so by friday i know where im going
    Well that has taken the misery of the cold away a bit

    Well done on landing the interview. Sounds like you're in with a good chance and the interview is just a formality so she can get to know you personally.

    That's brilliant news, I'm sure you'll be fab at the interview, and don't worry about your confidence cos it will just build and build the more you manage to do.

    Default Thanks folks x

    Cheers everyone for all the well wishes.
    My parents were well chuffed too.Cause i dont think we are going to manage to well here on one pay and no pr
    Savings are taking a hammering
    But anyway,
    even if this one doesnt work out,maybe someone with experience could be in with more of a shout,at least it will have given me the start and courage to go for more interviews.
    It certainly is more laid back here.
    The guy that interviewed Colin for his job,came to our house
    We had brought his suit over and new ties,shirts etc
    Ends up getting an interview on our camping chairs drinking coffee,with his shorts on.
    Somehow couldnt see that happening in Glasgow.
    And i was thinking with this woman,shes hardly gonna invite me to her house if she thought i was,well weird or something
    But anyway, wont count my chickens just yet
    At least its a start
    Thanks to all of you again

    Good luck with the interview! NZ certainly is more relaxed, isn't it?

    Thanks Selchie
    yeah it makes it so much easier for people like myself,with no experience etc.
    I got an e-mail to phone a woman about another carer job today.
    I dont know much about this one,pay ,hours etc.
    Will phone her tomorrow.
    Couldnt phone today as i have one of them annoying dry coughs that leads to spasms Was too scared incase it strikes while speaking to her.
    but again thanks for the well wishes
