Bad news, Good news ?


Bad news : I was successful with the interview I had at Audi. They sent me a letter starting with 'Unfortunately', so you can kinda guess the rest.....<booooo>

Good news : I've got another interview on Tuesday. This time it's at Bristol Airport working in the accounts department as a Finance Assistant. At first glance the job description looks real complicated, but when you break it down bit-by-bit it looks real good. Why oh why do they bother with those long words, when not everybody can understand them ?....it's like talking at a seminar and only being able to reach half the crowd, as the other half can't understand you !! I think they should ban all words containing more than two syllables

So, back to square one, but looking forward to the next opportunity.

Good luck Tee...I'm a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. It's the only way for me to make life logically acceptable. I would like to believe that you didn't get the first opportunity because there is a better one out there for you.

Well between you and me, I'll be happier if I get the one up the Airport as it seems more interesting....plus, I done a bit of temporary work up there about 4 years ago, and it seems a real nice friendly place to work too.

I just looked at the Audi interview as being 'experience', and something to learn from, ie. did I answer the questions to the best of my ability, etc.

To be honest, and not making excuses, I think the darn 'night before seizure' didn't really help either.....it kinda threw me off course a little, but hey ho, like you say 'these things happen for a reason'.

Yep, count the AUDI interview as a trial run.

Hopefully the one at the airport is the one for you, Good Luck

Awwww.....Thanks everyone

I was gonna ask my boss for a half-day tomorrow, as the interview is a li'l later in the day, but judging by the mood he was in Today I don't think that's gonna be a wise thing....plus two other people being out sick in the office doesn't help either. So I think I'm not left with much choice but to throw a <cough cough> sickie...(I hate lying though, don't you ?)

All I ask now is that I get a REAL good nights sleep tonight - unlike the one I did before the other interview.

Best of luck Tee Tee!! Perhaps because of your prior experience at the airport, it'll be the little extra something that gets you the job.

Well, how did the interview go??? Your curious friends want to know...

No doubt you kicked butt. Hope it was seizure free!
