    I got an interview

    Friday, January 19th, 2007

    The weather out here has been very changeable recently. One day I get sunburn, then the university campus gets closed for high winds, then it snows. It doesn’t even rain here, but it snowed.

    Yesterday I had my first interview. It was a while coming but I got a phone call for one job, then the next day a second call for a second job. So yesterday I drove down to Huntingdon Beach (where Jurgen Klinsmann lives) and interviewed for an IT Help Desk position. The company seemed cool and they have a really nice office, the interview went pretty well and the people seem nice. I’m hoping to have an edge over the competition as I speak French and they have plants in Montreal, Canada as well as Tolouse, France but there’s still a few more interviewees to go so hopefully I’ll hear back next week.

    Interviews

    Things are finally starting to pick up on the job front. I went for an interview at a temp agency who were amazed at the scores I got on the Excel and Word tests that involved copying, pasting, creating graphs and mail merging. Maybe they normally only get people who call help desks when they mouse doesn’t work because they haven’t turned on the PC. Anyway, they seem to think they can find me some temp work and I had two interviews for a permanent IT Tech position so hopefully something will come from it all in the next few weeks.

    Trip to the doctor’s

    Wednesday, July 5th, 2006

    I had my first job interview the other day, was invited back for a 2nd interview but it was selling insurance benefits to companies which isn’t really me but at least its a start in meeting employers.

    I made my first visit to an American doctor today, it was a lot easier than the NHS! Brenda has health insurance through her job so I went along and had to pay the $10 fee to see a doctor. In 35 minutes I saw the triage nurse, had a few x-rays on my knee and saw a doctor and left. I hurt my knee a year ago throwing a ball and I agitated it playing tennis the other day – it seems I sprained my medial collateral ligament. Got to rest it for a couple of weeks and if its not better go back for an MRI to see how badly the ligament was stretched.

    The ibuprofen is starting to kick in now so its not so bad. The most annoying thing was that I had finally got back into exercising regularly!
