    Also they didn't waste their time they were being paid.They wasted yours but they wouldn't consider your time important

    Guess what!

    Two interviews lined up- thanks for the moral support everyone.

    One of the posts requires my dusty/small Latin from secondary school to be used. Imagine, almost 4 decades since my last Latin lesson, I get to use it part of an interview and (possibly) job.

    I agree with @thatmaninthehat about getting a foot in the door. I started invigilating a year ago and since then every job, admin type, that comes up is advertised internally so all us invigilators seem to get first dabs. Two people who had only been employed for less than 6 months actually working less than 6 weeks have been employed, one on reception and one as Cover manager sorting out the cover everyday. I am sure there must be lots of places not just schools, who would prefer someone they know a little of, as it is also cheaper in advertising.

    Good Luck with those two interviews and lets hope you will need to search no further.

    I'm still continuing with applications. An interview is NOT a job offer.

    Thanks for your support.

    None of the supermarket applications have been successful in terms of interviews so far. However, I will apply for any invigilating posts that I see.

    But this is basic Sally. Really basic stuff. Im sorry but a puppet wouldnt make such a mistake. The fact that its happened twice? They should feel embarrased. Because it is embarrasing. And even when their mistake was pointed out they just snubbed you.

    Very nice of them.

    @slingshotsally likewise i have made numerous application for retail jobs and seasonal jobs- earnest jones, h&m, michael kor's and dunelm mills.

    Bit gutted that Michael Kors didn't get back to me. I had my sights set on a fancy bag. Could have bagged a staff discount!! :p

    Definitely. Once people see that you're good at stuff, things will get a lot better.

    Thank you so much.

    The Latin job update:
    I had one interview today as I made it through the initial "sift" of applications.
    Next week will be the 2nd sift, and I'll find out next Friday.

    Other Job:
    I have a day long interview midweek.

    I've got about 6 other jobs I'm hoping to hear back from.

    Nil carborundum illegitimi.
    Proper Latin, that is.
