Just back from an interview

    Recommended Posts

    Guess I finally figured out how to do selection criteria well enough, because I just came back from my 1st government interview for a perm role (well, 3 years perm anyway). Fingers crossed.....

    Thanks all. As it's a govt job it could take a couple of weeks to hear something, but I'm patient;)

    Yes the guy I spoke with there was absolutely amazing and so helpful, I called because I have a friend who is in desperate need of help, he told me about their staffing issues, and that was why I posted the info, know that there are some people out there who need work and it would be a great match up possibly. As it turns out, that night a friend banged into us in the street and said that his son's partner (who was being sponsored by an asian grocery store here and then once he got back to Ireland dumped him like a hot potato) was in desperate need of work. So I have sent him there, so who knows if you go there to work you may end up together. They are not taking any more clients at the moment, and directed my friend to another facility in Kaipo (think that is how you spell it), it is a shame if they cannot get back up and running because in these difficult times people who have problems do turn, as you know to the drugs and alcohol.

     

    Anyway please do keep in touch with me, I have a great network connection, and have just found a job today and apartment for one of my clients, so she is as happy as a clam. She's from Canada and because she didn't have a job (came as a student to finish her PHD) no one would rent to her, always something to remember.

     

    All the best.
