    Talking I got a new job!!!! Woo Hoo

    I applied for 1 job back in March (whilst I still had a job), but since being made redundant have not looked for anything else, as I fancied a few weeks/months to enjoy myself, travel a little and do some work on my car.

    I passed the first 2 stages (phone interview and online logic/maths test) back in April, but didn't think it was going anywhere.

    Two weeks ago I was invited up to their head office for a 'selection day'. That was yesterday. Quite stressful, but thought it went ok. Left their at 4:30pm. Got home and was about to make dinner, and phone rings at about 5:45pm. They wanted to call and offer me a job. They were so impressed, they didn't want to leave it, they wanted me to know how well I had done straightaway.

    Woo Hoo!!!! Sorry for random outburst of emotion but I'm really excited. The selection day was brilliant and the whole company really impressed me and the mindset of the current employees was really good too.

    Excellent TJ.

    What will you be doing?

    Same as your old job, or a career change?

    Decided against a career change. Didn't want to 'mar' (sp?) my car being my hobby by doing it every day and didn't know what else to do.

    So will still be working in IT. In fact will be working for Orange IT&N. That's IT and Networks. They are the guys who look after the whole company's internal IT, and all transmitters, antennas, broadband hardware etc etc. I was also looking for something with some formal training, as I get bored easily if just left to do one thing. I will get the opportunity to go on day release to college if I choose to, which is a real bonus!!

    On the contrary Geoff. Project XER is GO, GO, GO. I don't start until September so if I do a bit of bar work here and there (or something similar) then I can afford to spend some of my redundancy money and still have plenty of time to work on the car
