So nervous... (in Off-topic)


AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] June 28 2007 5:00 PM EDT

I've a job interview tomorrow morning, and I'm really nervous about it!

It's another school job, doing what I do now, but more management and strategy based.

They want someone quickly, gving under a week to submit you application form, and giving two days to prepare for the interview.

It's starts tomorrow at 7:45, and there are some tests before I have to give a 10 minute presentation on "My view of future ICT provision" before the interview.

I've spent he last two days wokring on the presentation, have got three slides in powerpoint and got it to 10 minutes.

I've done as much preperation as I can, and have everything ready for tomorrow. Just typing this to help calm me. :)

Good Luck, you will do just fine.

QBJohnnywas June 28 2007 5:29 PM EDT

Are the pubs open at 730am?

You'll be fine mate! ;)

Mem June 28 2007 9:20 PM EDT

I'd wish you luck, but it seems you've done all you can to take luck out of the equation. You'll do just fine.

With your infectious personality I have a feeling you will knock them off their feet :)

I'm first up of four candidates. My interview finishes at 12:15, last on finishes at 2:15. It'll take a while to deliberate, then they contact everyone by phone. I bet I'll be at home then, so you guys will know the minute I do! ;)

Best of luck man :)

QBOddBird June 29 2007 6:38 AM EDT

Let us know when they call to tell you they love you ;)

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] June 29 2007 7:42 AM EDT

:P

Back! Won't know the results for about 5 hours or so.

I think it went well, I could have done better on the tests, but I think they were intentionally set that way...

At the end of the interview, one of the Panel asked my sisters name, and then revealed she knows my mum and dad! From her husband wargaming! ;) I'm sure that can't do me any harm! ;)

I'll let you know as soon as I do! ;)

But there was an internal candidate, and I hate facing those. :(

QBJohnnywas June 29 2007 7:52 AM EDT

Fingers crossed for ya!


Flamey June 29 2007 7:58 AM EDT

I bet they aren't :P

Xenko June 29 2007 8:03 AM EDT

Good luck GL!

Mikel June 29 2007 8:16 AM EDT

They wouldn't have posted it to the public if they had a viable internal candidate, so I don't think you have any worries there. Good Luck though

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] June 29 2007 9:11 AM EDT

Mikel, in UK schools they aren't allowed to just promote people internally, they have to open up the position to all applicants.
But good luck GL, I'm sure you'll be successful.

Hope you get it GL .good luck!!

I can foresee the future, did you know that? I foresee you getting accepted, GL! ;)

No worries, no worries..

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] June 29 2007 11:43 AM EDT

Didn't get it.

Another candidate was just slightly better than me.

Thems the breaks.

AdminG Beee June 29 2007 11:44 AM EDT

Doh. Don't worry mate, the next one will be better for you anyway.

Can we expect another "I love you" post tonight ?

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] June 29 2007 12:17 PM EDT

Nah, no sauce tonight. ;)

th00p June 29 2007 1:29 PM EDT
