So finally some movement on the Job front . . . actually more like a war!!
Life has been quite quiet lately, with lack of funds and lack of motivation . . . got some feed back from my cv and apparently i could afford to change it a little . . . by little, I mean a lot.
Interviewed for 3. . . completely different jobs. One was public practice (management accounting and value added with audit thrown in), RBS Insuarance (major bank, mainly being general dogs body, year end etc) the other consolidating a group of "off license" or as the aussies would know "bottlo's".
So the RBS interview was first up . . . really impressed with the ethics of the organisation, unsure of how i came off, interviewer did not really look me in the eyes, but seemed a cool way to earn some dough and the potential of staying with the company or increasing my profile. Great social environment, based out in Kent, a 15 min train ride from here.
Second was the "offie" . . . meet the guy, didnt really gel, didnt really care as was impressed from the previous . . . lasted 15 mins, so didnt hold out for that one. Turns out, he didnt like me either, but hey, I am not offended.
Last, but by all means not least, was the public practice, was really hesitate re this one because I dont know, came to another country to try something different, also it was cool, because it was something that i really would feel comfortable doing. Went to the agency for a brief first . . . then wallked to the interview . . . I GOT LOST!!. . . needless to say, david and i did natter for an hour and a half. seemed really cool and basically headed in my direction. . . the MBA and the value added accounting . . more management accounting role . . initially temporary, but a view to go permanent. Fate was sealed . . . this seemed the deal!!
Then the devil came to view . . . second interview with RBS. that was 10 this morning . . .meet the second dude (SA) short and sweet, we got along famously. Has plently of potential for overtime etc. . .
Spoke to agent for RBS, advised that i thought all was well, had another offer on the table...he called me back before 12 and said the job was mine!! Then had call from PP and was advised that job was mine!! God, what a dilemma. How could i decide...
Second thoughts almost entered my mind then!! But i went by my decision, and hopefully it is the right one. RBS have advised to head back to them when i next need work. so maybe it was the right course of action to take!!
One the "fun" side of things. Went to the musical "fame" on monday night . . . dinner and show cost 20 pp so that was relatively cheap, and simple . . .
Anyway, better bail . . . Mark is looking at me to reposse his computer . . . OHHH! Heard on the radio, chance of snow tomorrow . . . maybe i will get that white christmas
