My application form has been at Roehampton Uni for nearly 2 weeks and no sign of an interview/rejection yet.

Problem is that it doesnt go to my second choice until they reject it so if they just sit on it I could lose out both ways.

They better get a move on I have to hand in my resignation by the end of june...

I just got rejected by 2 companies today.

A 3rd dissolved the position I was viaing for due to financial purposes.

I got one more on the boards, and another one in the works.

Still, going from 5 prospects to 2, in one day, rather sucks.

And on top of it, I have to go to baby class from 7 to 9pm tonight, so I can't get drunk, and I can't blow off work early and sulk because I am being made to go to counciling to explain to them how much I hate this job and the town I live in, but can't quit because I need the insurance.

Feel better?

Don't worry. Before you know it you'll be repaying student loans and surviving on cardboard sandwiches.

Enjoy it while you can.

fortunately not - this is my second time round (applying for a PGCE) and if I get in they pay me + my girlfriend is getting a pretty massive payrise which will cover a fair bit of the drop in household earnings. its worked out quite nicely - I've been earning enough to prop her up through her 2 years of training in the NHS, now she will be able to keep us above water while I do a year back at uni!

Roehampton? ROEHAMPTON? Sounds like a crap version of Surrey.

Well apparently I've got an interview!

I dont know where, when or with who - the GTTR web site is absolutely crap. Presumably there will be an email or a letter as well.

if you dont already, i'd start looking at government policies and their education mission statements. They ask some pretty nasty questions in some of these interviews

I'm waiting to hear back from an interview I had yesterday morning for a Trainee IT Tech job. I am absolutely bricking myself. If I get this job my life will be 1,000,000 times better!
