Jobhunt: Update III

I might have found the perfect job, finally! Later today I’m off to another job interview, this time at an international transport technology oriented company. They were looking for a buyer with up to 5 years of experience, to set up the purchase department properly. And what better person to do that than me? Not only am I insanely good at buying shoes and stuff, I’ve been a buyer at my previous job for approximately 2 years, and in a way I’ve set up their purchase department as well since they didn’t have one to begin with.

I applied to this job when I registered at the employment agency I told you about the last time, and I was really curious if they’d even consider me at all. The employment agency employee I talked to advised me to write a motivational letter, to explain why I’m such a good candidate for that job at that specific company, and so I did. It almost turned out to be an essay, and apparently it worked: the employment agency called me, telling me that the company was very interested in meeting me. I was super excited, and so was the girl I talked to. Hell, I think we were both surprised!

Seriously, everything about this job is perfect (although I still don’t have a clue what kind of $$$ I should expect). It’s what I love to do, I’d be pretty much independent, and it’s not too far away from where I live. Plus, the company is more “serious” compared to what I’m used to. I want haz!

Last week, I had an intake and assesment at another employment agency as well, but I decided to not apply to the job in the end. It was a full-time customer service kind of thing, paying only a tiny bit less than my previous job. It might have been smart to give it a try anyway, but I can’t do customer service any more. And if you read my post on CS here, you’ll probably agree that it’s not my thing indeed!

Right now, I’m off to do a little bit more “homework” on the company, and get a good outfit together. Keep your fingers crossed for me! Of course, I’ll let you know how it went :)

Jobhunt: Update I

I’m just gonna get to the point straight away: I have another job interview tomorrow! It’s for one of the two jobs I applied to last week :) Received a phone call from the company yesterday, had a good talk with the recruitment lady, and tomorrow I’m gonna be so awesome! I hope…

The job in itself is quite unlike anything I’ve ever done before; it’s Junior Consultant at an employment agency specialized in ICT. Basically, I’m supposed to be some kind of matchmaker, matching the right job to the right person. I guess I know all about how important the right match is…

I’m really excited right now, and maybe even a little nervous. I’ve checked the map 100 times now, just to try and not get lost: I even Google Streetviewed it! I really hope Streetview is in dire need of an update cause all I could find is a huge construction site. And if all else fails, my phone has GPS. So bring it on!

I didn’t lie about the construction site!

Let’s just hope that job interview won’t be as ridiculous as my previous one :) But if nothing else, it won’t take up 4 hours of my time to travel there and back. And that’s a good thing, because the weather forecast isn’t on my side at all… Rain, rain and more rain is predicted!

Aaaanyway… Enough babbling! I still have to figure out what to wear, and that’s a day’s work in itself :)

Thanks for reading!

P.S.: Does anybody have an idea why it’s such a pain in the ass to add a picture to a post while using Google Chrome? If Chrome was kill-able, I would’ve killed it.

Jobhunt… Not My Favourite Thing In The World!

It’s been a little over a month now that I’ve been without a job… And I’m bored to death already! Well… Not exactly bored; there’s enough to do around here, but… I kinda miss the fun things I used to encounter daily while working!

Since I really *need* a new job, I’ve spent quite some time searching the net for something that suits me. Which is, unfortunately, a bit harder than it seems! But I’ve finally come across two jobs I thought might be worthwile, and even got a semi-positive reply on one of my applications… So wish me luck! I’m gonna need it; apparently 33% of the people my age has been without a job for over a year. Insane, right?

Speaking of jobhunt… I came across the funniest job application letter on 9gag a few days ago, and I thought I’d share it with you… Check it out:

Application Letter

I’m seriously considering sending one like this out!

Anyway, that’s all for now, thanks for reading and let me know what you think of the application above!
