    Default Jobs and interviews

    Well, after the earlier disappointment this week, I am now dusted off and ready to go again!

    Had an email from the agent in Auckland, and that sounds as though there is going to be an offer shortly ... they are re-doing their organisation chart to see where I'd fit in!

    Oh, and I sent my CV off to a company in Christchurch yesterday, and am having a telephone interview with them next week

    Am hoping for the Christchurch job ....

    Let's hope Neil's job offer has broken the run of lots of interviews, but no offers. Good news about the Auckland job although it may not quite be where you want to be. You could always move on later if this forthcoming Christchurch interview doesn't bear fruit. It's all happening, isn't it.

    It is starting to ... yesterday Jon and I were planning our trip to Christchurch, and it just felt a relief that we weren't going to be settling in Auckland (this was before I'd heard from the Auckland agent, and thought there was not likely to be a job there).

    So, Tuesday eve, I shall be a bag of nerves prior to 9pm ... and then I have to hope I can answer all their questions so well that they offer me a job there and then!

    My poor lil ticker ....

    Good luck Lou - you'll be fine. I have had 2 phone interviews in my life and they have both been better than the face to face ones. If you are nervous you can 'fiddle' (but not with Jon ) without anyone knowing. Fingers crossed for the Christchurch one - then we can be 'neighbours'

    Nice one Louby Loo - you don't wanna be one of then JAFFA's love. They are treated with such disrespect and you would just be tarred with the same brush regardless, other Kiwis do seem to think they're a bit of a joke.

    Can't wait to meet you all together. You must getting vair vair excited now. Oh, and Hugo is vair vair keen to add another bitch to his harem although Daisy has been jogging every day and working on ducking and weaving

    I am getting rediculously excited now

    Job interview last night went really well. Got really good vibes. Before the interview had ended, they have told me they want to see me for a face-to-face interview, and might fly me to Christchurch during our first week in Auckland

    and got to work this morning, and another Christhurch company are interested in seeing me in the flesh when I arrive too

    Just the diet to crack now

    What it is to be popular. With a bit of luck you could end up just where you wanted to be.

    Good luck!
