Dear Theo.....I got the job!!!!!

    Yay for me!
    Theo, I have just landed my dream job. Teaching GCSE and A level biology in a small, independent school. OMG I am so happy!!!!
    I followed what I learnt on the seminar. Did my personal statement like on the seminar, I did an executive statement, I studied your interview tips.
    I was told my application on paper was excellent.
    I was told I interviewed very well.
    I was told they think I have so much to offer the school and will fit in perfectly.
    I am so happy!
    Makes a change from ticking all the boxes (and then some) then being told 'other candidates <strike>were cheaper </strike>were more suited to our requirements'
    Thank you Theo......thank you!

    You're a star, a twinkly star!
    Super, super, super!

    I knew you would do it!

    All that winking at me in the Job Seminar has paid off!


    I couldn't be more thrilled if I had got the job myself!

    Now send me a PM to say what school it is, to see if I know anything more about it. It sounds a great job for you from what you say.
    And a final one for luck:

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
    Yes, it gives us all hope and I was on the verge of sticking two fingers up to the whole shebang!
    Theo, I have been celebrating in the company of a nice chilled pink Bollinger so will PM you tomorrow when I can remember all the details but I KNOW it wouldn't have happened without the seminar input!
  5. Huge congratulations Belle! Been following your jobhunt for a while and am so so pleased for you. You definitely deserve all those twinkly stars and, if I knew how to do it, I'd add some myself!
    Good luck for the future - keep us posted on how it goes
