Not sure what irons you have in the fire, but I personally, selfishly hope you stick with teaching. It's been exhilarating watching you catch the teaching bug.

Application submitted online on Saturday, confirmation email is in my inbox. Now we wait...

The stressful bit is that there are 3 of us on scondment to the job and applying for permanent, but as far as we know there's only funding for 1 new post. Despite the fact that the team with current numbers is only just coping [Roll Eyes]

That sounds much like the situation of my colleagues; my job ceases to exist on Friday, and others are facing reduced hours or enforced early retirement.

My own situation isn't so bad, as we're moving away next month anyway (where I'll have to look for something new), but I feel bad for my colleagues. They're used to working from one batch of grant funding to another, but this has been more drastic: the provincial government had an "austerity" budget a few months ago and pulled the plug from their funding of the department, and my bosses (who have tenure in their posts) are going to find it much harder to do their jobs without the support of the team they're used to.

Here we go. I leave for my interview and training with the federal agency tomorrow. I interview pretty much first thing tomorrow afternoon, and then I believe that I will be attending the meetings and group activities that follow over the next two days. So it's looking good. I still don't have a tentative offer, so I'm preparing like it is a competitive interview, but I have no indication that anyone else is being interviewed this week. All prayers and good thoughts appreciated at this point.

Thanks, all.

I was informed (informally) that it was a "welcome in" interview. Still no official offer, but I am already being informally assigned future work, so I think I should be official within the next few days.

Just back from 10 days retreat and then holiday to discover my DBS certificate waiting for me!!
I am so, so thankful.
My old school have already booked me for two days supply cover next week.
Just need my husband to find himself an employment niche now and then we can relax a bit on the finance front.
We never expected to be in this position as we thought we'd remain mission partners until retirement but it wasn't to be so it just goes to show that you can plan all you like but might need to remain flexible. (Not always my strong suit.....)

My job has been extended until October which is very good news and I had some very flattering things said to me in the process (although I'm not sure that being told I have the enthusiasm of an excitable puppy is entirely complimentary. I didn't know my new boss had asked to keep me before I even raised the subject.

At the moment they're interviewing for people the grade above me. Three of the people in my office are applying and if they get the jobs then there could be vacancies at my grade. Which would be in about October. I don't want to get my hopes up to much but I'm still loving it.

Who knew that doing a job that doesn't make you ill gives you energy and mental strength enough to do things in your time off rather than requiring all your available oomph to try to attempt to work?

Still applying for other jobs as a back up but its difficult to motivate myself when I want to stay where I am.

We got back from Iceland today, and sitting in my inbox was an interview invite for the job I'm in right now. Good thing I added a slight buffer on the dates I couldn't make, or it would probably have been on my first day back at work. [Ultra confused] Instead, it's on my second day back...

Oh boy.

Got a call from the hiring official, no offer. They apparently want someone with different qualifications. Which might have been nice for them to determine before I took three days off of work to fly out to California. If they are that fucking clueless, I probably didn't want to work for them anyway.

Feeling plenty angry (but not nearly as angry as my wife) and a bit sick, but working on another application for a job that I am unquestionably qualified for, this time with the state. Knock on wood.

I called for a little clarification. Once I was able to convince the hiring official that I was only looking for closure and not threatening her (heaven forbid that anyone ask for an explanation of why they didn't get a job after a four month lead on - [Roll Eyes] ), I actually got a pretty sincere answer which made it seem like they were sincerely hoping to be able to offer me the job after the out of town interview, but just couldn't based on my skills. Oh well, their loss. Onward.

I've just become the owner of one tenth of a bookshop!
Our owner has been wanting to sell for a couple of years, and now he's decided he wants to sort everything out quickly, so he's given a really good deal to a staff buyout (socialism, yay!).
It's a bit of a risk in the present uncertain climate, but it's a lot better than being out of work! And we do have a chance to make this work.

The bookshop is the Cinema Bookshop in Hay-on-Wye, where I've been working for about eight years (I'm the new girl - everyone else has been there longer!). We have a pretty strange business model which is possibly why the business didn't sell on the open market - but we know it works.
It involves having a shop in Charing Cross Road in London, called Quinto, while the head office is here in Wales. Once a month, we fill their basement with books, and at the end of the month anything that hasn't sold comes up to Wales to stock the Cinema shelves, and then we fill the basement up with fresh stock again.
Because we're so big, we don't specialise in any particular area, but we have just about every subject you can think of somewhere, and a pretty good antiquarian book section called Francis Edwards too.
When I'm not at the front desk, I get to play in the Travel and History department.
We even got into the local paper, the Brecon and Radnor Express, this week!

My role was made redundant back in May and I've now been out of work for two months. This was ok when I was able to enjoy some visitors from across the Ditch, and quite helpful when we were moving to our new home (the first I've ever owned!), but now reality has hit. I've got only one job that has reached interview stage, and every other application has seemed like tossing my information into the void in the hope that someone will notice it. After yet another polite rejection (but at least I got one, and at least it was polite), it's all starting to feel too hard.

Does anyone have any suggestions about getting around the anonymous online application scenario? Trying to even find out who the hiring manager is for these roles has so far been incredibly unsuccessful.

Eigon - your job sounds lovely, just the sort of thing I'd have wanted if I was twenty years younger.


Clarence and Zappa, good luck with job searching. Clarence, if the job hunting market is anything like the UKs you need to make sure that your CV has the key words your sector is looking for. So many companies use computer programmes to do the initial weeding out nowdays and if you don't have those words you won't get onto the next stage.
