last minute advice? God it's a nice day.
A simple method is to repeat the name back to them.....you'll be reet! Good luc..
I think I might do this every time I'm introduced to anyone from now on.
Just the forename....pedantic bastard!
and GOOD LUCK x
and suggest you all play Hide and Seek. You'll bond, it'll be great.
if it's going badly, see if any of them want a motorboat.
Best of luck! with the interview, not the motorboating.
Most interview advice is trite crap. Make it clear you can do the job and just hope to God they like you more than the other applicants.
I'm such a fantastic person! Oh god, I'm going to walk this. oh god i'm not i'm going to fail i'm destined to be a hairdresser just like my dad's wife said I might as well stop having ambition now
you'll do fine dear.
I just have absolutely no concept of time, it seems.
to the interviewer
"is your kettle broken"
smoke to get some cwaffee round here?"
you'll be grand.....
just smile and be yourself...
i think they liked me but who can tell? they just laughed. they said what's your dream job and i said i want to run hackney city farm. and they asked me what my weaknesses are and i said job interviews. i think they thought i was really weird. especially when i told them i have a pet rat.
Better than thewarn's 'I get jealous easily' answer, anyway.
"i'm very easily emotionally attached and have been known to stalk"
'My mate once said this (give them chance to laugh a little, hit 'em with an actual weakness)' and BAM! win.
i think i did a good job of mine but I really dont know. I wish i didn't blush so easily. I think i saw MTFU writen on one of the interviewers notes.
i wish i didn't trail off my sentences so easily!
"what are your strengths?"
"i ammmmm confident.. i am organised.. i love people.. i can talk for england.. i cannnn filll in gaps in sentences by waffling whilst trying to find something else to say in my mind.."
i really should think before i speak.
much of a muchness i think, although i won't be greeting visitors. they said they bring their dogs in to work "but you won't be able to eat your rat, they'll eat her!" and oh how we laughed. yeah. i'm going out to buy a bicycle now. what's a good bicycle shop nearby? i want one of those nice city bikes with a basket and a white seat and nice thing tires. i tries brick lane bikes but it was too sporty.
a donkey, some goats, chickens and then there's a small animal section with a degu and rats and a massive rabbit and guinea pigs and oh god it's so nice, i might go today. i want to volunteer there while i have time off work anyway.
a turkey started chasing me and I ran away but after a few seconds thought "what the fuck am I running away from a turkey for?" and I turned around and started chasing it.
It was a much better story as a 7 year old.
unless the job was to run Hackey City Farm, in which case you probably seemed quite the try-hard.
My Philosophy tutor told me part of my essay was "brilliant". I got 69 for it. LOL!
