I have been applying for jobs and had an interview with an agency on Friday. In fact it turned into two interviews - the second was with the owner of the firm as he is looking for staff and the first interviewer thought I might be what they were looking for. After a couple of gruelling hours - the questions were very hard... I left there absolutely exhausted. Being the usual pessimist I am not holding my breath over this position.
Two questions I was asked which I found tough...
1) put the following three items in priority order and explain why - a) organisation b) a sense of urgency and c) attention to detail.
2) what would you be bringing to the firm.
Having a chat with my son today he said why not take a career change - the more I think about it the harder I find to think of what I could do other than that which I am used to and did in my role - Office Administration and HR/Personnel. I guess some form of training - I can run workshops after all, but how do you get a job in training?
Any way lets change the subject before I cry again....recently I purchased two brilliant workbooks by Laura Carter Woods. The details say you can write directly in the workbooks but I decided to make lots of notes elsewhere. I am now ready to pass them on - I paid $51 which equates to £25. (as they had to be shipped from USA) . If anyone wants the two for £15 including the postage please let me know. SOLD
