Iíve not been posting a great deal since getting a 14 week temporary contract at Centrelink back in March, but I thought I would add this as itís put a smile on my face that will stay for a long time.
Well with just two weeks left before I would have to start knocking on doors again Iíve struck gold!
I will be finishing with centrelink next Friday, one week early so I can start at my new FULL TIME PERMINANT ROLE in my dream job.
I start a week Monday as the on site Buildings and Maintenance Officer in a brand new $22 million dollar care home and I canít wait.
Now we both feel the final part of the jigsaw has been put in place and we can really start planning for the future. Who knows maybe in the future when we retire we will be residents there so I had better do a good job!
Val did well and secured her job back in December and after eight months and the savings taking a battering I wondered if I would ever get anything but in the end Iíve done it.
Now I must admit at the application stage 15 people applied, eight were interviewed before two were shortlisted and I did slightly have my foot in door as itís the same company that Val works for.
Sometimes as they say itís who you know not what you know but what the heck if it helped me so what.
Good luck to all those searching and wherever you go even if just shopping talk to everybody you meet, network and above all donít give up because Australia really is worth it. (Even in the winter!)
