The Weekend Blog (Vol.68)
15th August 2015
I am pleased to announce that after being unemployed for three month and after applying for 93 jobs I finally have a job!
You can all breath a sigh of relief as there will be no more unemployment related Weekend Blogs. Hooray!
As of September I will be employed as a Junior Web Developer and I could not be happier. It’s the perfect start to my coding career and I’m excited for the future.
This job means I can stay living in Liverpool with Tyrone, I can start learning to drive again, Ty and I can go to America next summer and I can even start saving for a house. Yeah, I know a house sounds extreme but you have no idea how much I have missed having a garden.
I can’t wait to start, but I am going to enjoy the few weeks I have off before I join the team. I don’t feel like I’ve had a summer break because applying for jobs is a job in itself.
On Tuesday, as well as having an interview for the web developer job, I also had an interview at Lush which was probably the most enjoyable interview I’ve ever had. I even got to see Holly from Holly Quills and Ivy and purchase some of the new products from the Oxford Street range. As much as enjoyed the interview it made me realised that retail work would be impossible for me. My legs were aching after less than 2 hours of standing around.
Next weekend I’ll be at my cousin’s wedding in Shropshire (I’m a bridesmaid!) so I’m not sure when the Weekend Blog will go up, but I hope to share with you some photos of my dress.
Have a great weekend!
