I went for another interview yesterday, at a taxi company in Newcastle. Now I could do this job standing on my head with both hands tied behind my back ('cept I'd need my hands to type with!) and I thought I'd be in with a good chance, especially as I've done a similar job years ago. This is the email I just received:
I am afraid to say that we can not employ you at this current time due to lack of funding as the company is stuck in limbo due to the company being for sale and after interviewing you the secretary told me about the situation, you are the favourite candidate for the job and I hope I can contact you in the near future when the funds are available. I have your details on file and we will contact you for employment if any of our current staff leave. I must stress that I found your CV to be outstanding.
Chris seriously needs a lesson in punctuation! But he was a really nice lad and new to the job from what he was saying when he was interviewing me. I actually met the secretary, shook his hand in fact, a man of few words. Wouldn't you have thought that if the company was in limbo and short of funds to employ someone, they wouldn't have bothered putting an advert in the Job Centre? Makes you wonder at their mentality doesn't it! MEN!
Not to worry, I was at the JC again this morning and I've applied for another 8 or 9 jobs since I got home. And now I'm off for a lie down to recover.
