I had to chase them for two weeks, but in the end I got a straight, no-nonsense, no-beating-about-the-bush 'no'.
Local College Job
I thought this had had long enough to die a death, but the college, when I called them, said they'd extended the application deadline 'because the post is so dreadful'.
...I think she meant the mail, but she could have meant 'We have extended the deadline because the job is so terrible'...you never know.
With a little bit of Isle-o-Wightian reading between the lines, this means that they haven't had that many applications, and so hopefully, what with having huge swathes of experience for this job, I'll make the shortlist, which comes out later today.
The job title is 'Student Liaison Officer' for the staff/students at the local tech college. It's £12,500-£13,100, so not too bad if you're living at home, and the job boils down to doing a similar job to all the Sabbs at Warwick, rolled into one, combined with SSLC, which I did at Warwick for three years.
There's also a bit of event organising in there, and managing the elections for the Student Association, which, despite not being in Elections Group, I figure I've enough experience of, from attempting to bend the rules into a circle for two weeks last February.
I'm reading: This fortnight's 'Professional Engineer' with a sort of horrified amusement... (see today's Onscreenmind)
I'm writing: Lots
I'm playing: Not a lot, still...(see I'm writing)
I'm debating: Whether to go to the Warwick Christmas Reunion, or to save the money and be able to go out over Christmas.
