I found out late Friday afternoon that I didn’t get the job I really wanted. Apparently, after 3 seperate interviews, they decided I was ‘too laid back’ to work for them.
Too laid back? Surely being laid back is a good thing? Surely that means I don’t get stressed very often and cope with pressure well? Does this mean that I should be nervous & highly strung? And the VP who interviewed me was in jeans and a T-shirt, on a Wednesday. And I’m too laid back?! Cripes!
So, back to the grindstone again.
I had another interview on Friday afternoon, a second interview with an accountancy firm. Went well, I got a good feeling about the place, and the interview lasted for almost an hour.. I think I sold myself fairly well. Should find out about this one on Tues or Wed.
Begonia came over for dinner on Sat night – her and Miguel are engaged! She’s got herself a gorgeous square cut platinum ring and a lovestruck expression on her face! :) Apparently I’ve got myself roped into dress design consultancy.. ;)
Begonia also asked my I wasn’t applying for Cambridge jobs. Well, I’ve never worked or lived in London and I want to give it a go. Also, corporate London experience will look great on my CV and set me up to go further. Besides, the money I’m on now is about top end in Cambridge. If I want more money, London is the place to be. I don’t want to go home and regret a missed opportunity that could set me up at home.
Quiet weekend, a bitmoody still after the disappointing news last week. I’ve got an interview set up now for next Monday 30th – let’s see where that one goes.
Hoping your fingers are still crossed for me
