New Job?

I am rubbish at keeping up with this blog…possibly due to having the most boring life ever at the moment.

And Taylor Swift says being 22 is amazing. She was lying. Greg James’s version is much more accurate.

My last few posts have been about my weight loss, my job and my book blog. They are all going great. I am 3 pounds off 2 stone now, so i’m pushing hard to get this uni weight off. My book blog is going great too, I’m making some really good contacts, and making great friends with authors as well as receiving advanced copies of books and being a part of such a friendly community.
And I am still working part-time although i don’t earn over £200 a month. Being skint even on payday isn’t an awesome feeling.

BUT, and its a fingers-crossed-this-works-out-for-me BUT…I have two, yes, two interviews next week. Well one really, as i think one is an induction. The induction one is for a library assistant for 6 weeks during the Cardiff uni exam period. It’s good money and that is something i am in dire need of at the moment, but i also want to do this job as I want my career to involved books in some way. Being a library assistant is a little foot in the door.

Now the second interview is for a PR Communications Assistant. I apply for so many FT jobs that I lose track of where i have applied so i need to dig deep with research with this company as i cant remember applying for it, but its a job which i think i would do pretty great in as its to do with my degree. Its a 6 months contract with a chance of being permanent, and if i do get it and i being permanent then it means i can move back out of my family home and FINALLY get my own place. So everyone, please cross your fingers for me because i really want this job and i want out of my PT job as retail is not all its cracked up to be anymore (Sorry if you love retail, its just not for me anymore)

I’ll let you all know how i get on and if i get the job. I hope I do, it involves writing, marketing and publishing and i want to get into marketing and publishing books so its another foot in the door! Eee i’m nervous and excited for next week now, but heres to my luck hopefully looking up.

Until next time!

Have you gone through life without a single job interview?

In my 20 years, I’ve only ever had two jobs. Well three now if you count the one I’ll be starting when I return back to university in September.

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been to two interviews in my life – not exactly an experienced interviewee. One when I was 16 for Superdrug and another a few months ago for Laura Ashley, but the jobs I’ve had, I’ve never needed to be interviewed for. I’m not lying; I’ve gotten these jobs through an ex-boyfriend and my friends.
