So after my interview thursday at a local primary school for an administration job, I was called the day after asking to come in for a meeting with the business manager. I was pretty chuffed, I’d shown my interest in two of their available posts. I was the first person of several that interviewed for the same job, and clearly it did go as well as I thought. I’m starting next Monday, I’m pretty relieved to have found something. Having nothing to do here while unemployed is pretty frustrating and lonely as well.
This’ll actually be my first full time job, I’ve either been ill or in education upto this point. I hope that I can cope with the hours, to be honest, I don’t think there’ll be very often I’m rushed off my feet after meeting everyone in the office that I’ll work in. I think I might actually be the only guy that will work in the office. Good job they already all really like me haha (Two of the women I’ll be working with interviewed me)
I’m really looking forward to it. It pays really badly because it’s only an apprenticeship, but I pick up the relevant qualifications. So in the long term it’s worthwhile, even if I don’t find use for the administration qualification. No experience is bad experience I figure. It seems like a really nice environment to be in.
She did warn me of the importance of how we come across to parents, that they’ll be shouting at me and I just have to take it. I had a thought in my head of just straight telling an annoying parent to fuck off. Yeah, I probably shouldn’t do that. Better not..
Congratulations – well done. Best of luck and I hope you soon settle in and enjoy the role. I had a similar role some years ago and really did enjoy it. The parents weren’t too bad to be honest 😉
Thankyou! I’m sure I’ll do just fine. I’ve already chatted to a couple of mums while I was waiting to interview, they were lovely. I’m not so worried hah 🙂
Congrats friend! I’m so happy for you! You’ll do great. Positive thoughts!
Thanks 🙂 I’m looking forward to it, I’m sure I’ll enjoy it. I’m going to be like you sneaking onto my blog at work!
Well done and good luck 😉
Thank you, I didn’t know you still occasionally dropped by! 🙂 I hope you’re well
