I got a new job!! ^_^

Life really has a habit of throwing me curve balls, just to keep me on my toes. This past week is a perfect example.

On Saturday, I sent off an application form for a job vacancy that was advertised at the Jobcentre. On Monday, I received a phone call from the company saying they wanted me to come to an interview on Wednesday. After showing them my hastily put together portfolio in Wednesday's interview, I was asked to come back for a second interview on Friday.

On Friday, After an hour and a half of waiting followed by a very brief meeting with a senior manager, I was given the offer of a 6 month work trial at the company.

All this just within the space of a week! Up to this point, I had received virtually no replies to my applications to other companies. At the time, I didn't think for a second that I would get a call up for an interview, let alone a second one afterwards. Sufficed to say, I'm still trying to digest what has just happened.

No doubt it will take some time to get comfortable in my new job, but I'm prepared for the long haul. I just hope that this company is better than my old job!
