Got a job today!
« on: December 20, 2004, 12:59 PM »
I can’t believe it yet, but this afternoon I managed to get a new job as an IT tutor!

I’ve been doing the job as agency work since November, but today they gave me the permanent position.

The interview process was a bloody nightmare. First there was the 30min IT test (in which I apparently top-scored), then the was the 5 min presentation on the IF function in excel in which I kept dropping my overhead projector transparencies, and finally there was the formal interview with the College Principal, the head of IT, the head of human resources and my boss!

Never go for an interview for a post in Further Education   ;)

So I’m feeling pretty happy right now   ;D
Rob.

Great news Rob!  Sounds like you really had to jump through some hoops, but its worth it.  I feel like we came out ahead on the deal too.  You've been tutoring forum members in various subjects for years now, for free!  :D

Excellent news.  Congrats. 

Our review process continues, but it looks like I'll retain my job, mostly as it is.  Some changes in duties, but still having a job is a good thing.

Congrats Rob!

Maybe you can come tutor our IT dept. They are completely inept, and could use someone to whip them into shape!
