...to contact a person I know who does the same job as I'm interviewing (as in I'm the interviewee) for but in a different section of the county to ask for advice/tips?
I only know her through her work but we've chatted quite a bit because she was interested in my skills and making use of the parenting stuff I do - we talked about her helping me set up a sleep clinic as it was one of my plans and fitted in with her remit. I got to know her through my children attending some of the sessions she co-ordinated originally though so our realtionship is sort of semi professional I guess, but hard to define. Thus, not sure wheter to contact or not.
Oh dear. I did say on one of my posts that I hadn't seen you much lately. What's up? Hope you are okay if you don't want to say.
You really helped me fine tune my person spec. so I am very grateful indeed for the input. I didn't hear anythign from all the other jobs I applied for and said to myself when I emailed off my most recent one over the weekend, that if I heard nothing then I'd just have to accept that I'd need to put in a few more years 'below manager' before I could go for the roles I think I am capable of and the salary I want!
Anyhow, not in the bag yet but interview is Friday (13th eek!) and I am pretty out of practise. Will be researching like crazy this week.
