Just thought I'd shout out I survived my first interview in 7 years.

I was a bag of nerves, answered most of questions, forgot lots of things, didn't sell myself brilliantly.

But I have survived and live to face another day.

Thanks for listening smile

thanks for all your messages. Just found out that i'm through to the next round. v exciting. now i have to do a telephone role play. less scary as gabbing is something i do well smile

best of luck Menagrie. i was dead nervous and forgot lots of my key skills. So if your good with people, IT, prioritising, team working, dealing with people, numerate, have good english skills. its worth having an example of these. i think there called soft skills.

Good luck

This is brilliant. Roses, Lynette, Grumpalo and other MNers all getting the jobs they went for recently. Seems all good news on this forum. Is this the end of the recession or are you all just fab?

I find out on Monday. I sooooo want this job.
