How very splendid.

I have a job interview next week. The company involved, called me!
Booked a flight, taxi and hotel room and paid. They approached me, which is always flattering, but to pay, upfront, for me to get to  the interview, and expenses...I'm secretly hopeful.

Re: How very splendid.

Well since January, I've had 43 interviews...but I wouldn't do the job for half what I was doing it for last year. These guys called me, offered a package, and a looksee...it's the most hopeful I've been.
As an aside, a total c n u t I worked with four-five Years ago, applied for the same job. He didn't get it.

Gra I think it is admirable the efforts that you have gone to to get a job.



















And after 43 interviews I reckon that I would seriously consider this rent boy thing too...    lol  lol  lol















No seriously, best of luck.   wink

Re: How very splendid.

I tried the rent boy thing henry...but I looked ridiculous in a school uniform. Besides, Matt has that particular field...ahem...tied up.  big_smile
The biggest issue was money. If I work away, I need to earn enough, to support two households. When the absolute minimum I would go for was twice as much on offer, it wasn't worth it. This though has seen lots of jobs on offer, one I can think of in particular, being on offer for over a year. This one is a chance to relocate, which is what we nearly achieved last time round. I liked living in Scotland.

Me too! There's people in my family who wouldn't leave the house before 10AM for a job, let alone go to the other end of the country!

Re: How very splendid.

Best of luck...although it sounds like it maybe a done deal....I hope it is anyway.. smile

Thanks chaps. I would just like to make a point as well. Since January we have lived on my wife's two day a week wage, as a school teacher. Coupled with some very meagre earnings from me. We haven't claimed any sort of benefit, or handout. We therefore are not part of any statistical un employed group. We have been struggling for the last month, but have not lost sight of me, getting some work and all being well.     

Thanks for all your good wishes, they are really appreciated.
