I had a second-round interview yesterday, I think we got on really well, the job seemed interesting (and almost fun! shock) and she said she'd call me tomorrow.

Well it is tomorrow! So call me! Now! And tell me I've got it, obviously.

Good luck.

(what was it - ARE there any fun jobs ?)

TrillianAstra Fri 26-Jun-09 12:34:23

It's mostly going to be database stuff (but I am geeky and though that looked fun) - there would be me and this other girl analysing things in an office with about 8 techy guys. There was lots of 'I'm making tea, who wants some' while I was there yesterday morning.

Are you looking at your phone every 5 minutes?

I bet when it rings your heart will start racing smile

I had a call from the recruiter saying I had got my dream job 10 minutes prior to going in and having a ovarian cyst removed (sneakily had my mobile phone under the bed covers as I was desperate to know). Went into the operating theatre with a huuuuge smile on my face smile

Oooh good luck, ikwym about waiting for the phone to ring
Also, it sounds as though we have very similar jobs!

StealthPolarBear Fri 26-Jun-09 12:40:05

And it goes without saying you have to come back to this job and tell us!

Mmm, meatball subway, scoffed in about 5 mins flat.

Yesterday was really nice, I think it was a test of how we would get on more than anything (so if I get a no I will be very ) and how I would manage doing new stuff that I hadn't done before.

TrillianAstra Fri 26-Jun-09 12:50:19

Yes I am looking every 5 minutes - I have ti on vibrate so it won't make a loud noise but I'm sure I will hear it anyway so don't really know why I keep looking.

Fimbo Fri 26-Jun-09 12:57:38

Don't you have the urge to phone them TA?

Metella Fri 26-Jun-09 13:01:00

Fingers crossed for you!

StealthPolarBear Fri 26-Jun-09 13:01:05

bet they'll be planning to call after lunch
I'm in a meeting at 2 - news before thn would be good...

TrillianAstra Fri 26-Jun-09 13:06:38

Nooooo, mustn't phone them! That would be wrong.

I will try my hardest to have news before your meeting Stealth wink

<does nothing>

That's all I can do grin

Love the phone-sneaking GetOrf.
