  • A GTIL that deserves it's own topic

    After 4 months of unemployment, I finally found a new job!

    The job market here is beyond shite at the moment. I've been applying for dozens of jobs daily, with less than 5% callback rate.

    Last week I went for two interviews, one an admin role which I could've done blindfolded, and an entry-level accounts role.

    I heard back about the admin role yesterday, and was told I was almost chosen, but due to my bookkeeping certificate, the company was scared that I'd get bored and move on. WTF? It had put me in a questionable position - I can't get an admin role (that I have the skills for) because of my bookkeeping cert, but I can't get a finance role because I don't have the practical experience

    So at about 5pm, I get a call about the accounts junior role - and I got it!!!

    FINALLY someone has offered to give me a chance. It's a shit pay, but my new boss is willing to teach me everything I need to know about working in an accounts department.

    And now for the bonus bits!

    The office is located in Oxford Circus! Shopping!!!!!! There's a bus that will take me from my house to practically the front door.

    And the office itself? OMG :o (what you can't see is the autographed guitars by Nirvana and the Chilli Peppers in the reception area)

              Good for you, but those offices look like torture to me.

              Too many colours and straight lines...

                      that office does not deserve its own thread...

                      that decor is most certainly NOT a GTIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
                      I just threw up in my mouth a little...

                          Well done Daise, now don't fuck it up

                            Well done is it at Google?

                            This thread gives me an Idea though, I buy a guitar, fake sign it with removable ink then write it off on tax as art for the office.

                              Well done Daise! To date your exasperated humour in your job search adventures belies the bleak employment conditions in London at the moment. You have perservered and it has (finally) paid off.

                              Now get out there and knock 'em dead with your special brand of Corina-ness (TM). I'm not going to complain about the decor, I think the colour scheme will appear quite subdued once the self-confessed queen of kitsch makes herself at home... I won't keep you too long, even from here I can the whispers of retail therpay calling for you, like sirens from the shore.
