The last few months have been spectacularly pretty shit. My mum was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic cancer, my brother has been paralysed and just general life has felt a bit shit.

I have one little ray of hope at the moment, I have a job interview for my dream job, it is a huge step up the career ladder, but most importantly it will enable to me to get out of the most stressful/oppressive organisation I have ever worked for. It will also be a huge financial boost and offers more in the way of career development. I have prepped about as much as I can and so don’t feel as nervous/pressured (though that may change in the morning grinPlease can you all cross your fingers for me/send me some good vibes….anything, please!!!

Good luck. It sounds like it's been long overdue. I hope your mum and brother keep well, too.

Absolutely wishing you the best of luck!

When's the interview? Perhaps if you post a little bit about what the organisation/role is there'll be a MNetter able to give you a bit of direct insight?

Oh good luck. I started a pity party thread the other day so sympathies from me. It sounds really tough. I find that having something "going on" amongst all the shit is a good distraction too.

Fingers crossed! When is the interview?

PurpleHairAndPearls Mon 01-Feb-16 15:17:09

Christ I don't mean you're having a pity party thread blush that was worded really badly sorry. I just meant I had a thread recently to say everything had gone a bit shit and called it a "pity party" thread in a shit attempt at being lighthearted. Apologies.

Sounds like you deserve some good luck!! Everything crossed for you. Don't forget to come back and update us!

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Mon 01-Feb-16 15:25:58

FX for you. You want the position too much not to be successful, and you certainly deserve it after all you've been through.
You're half way there with the interview. Theyve obviously liked your CV or app form.
Shine bright like a diamond. You'll be fantastic.

GoringBit Mon 01-Feb-16 15:38:31

I agree with lighthouse, they won't interview people that they couldn't envisage giving the job to, so you're already in a good position.

You sound very enthusiastic about the interview, let them see that enthusiasm, and don't be afraid to allow yourself some thinking time before answering questions.

You can do this. smile

Ah wow thanks everyone! Its at 9am tomorrow. Ive been prepping like mad! Oddly enough I dont feel nervous (ask me again in the morning lol), as Ive seen what/where they are up to what their main issues are and got me some questions to ask. I feel nicely prepared.
