    Eeeeek! I have my first interview this morning!

    I must admit, I feel less anxious then I have in the past, as one of my worries always was, "Will they see past the fat - and see me".

    I have found already, I am more bold in telling them what I want. When she discussed starting salary ranges, I adv'd I would only be interested in the high end - otherwise will not consider the post. And she said, fine, come on in! I never would have been that bold before. Doesn;t mean I will get it - but I said it!! lol

    So - this is just the first screening interview with the agency. I know I am qualified - in my mind anyway lol - so it should push me through to the next phase - fingers crossed.

    If I am successful, and get it - at the rate I want - it would be a 5K a year increase.

    JUst THINKG of the clothes!!! :rotflmao:

    Anyway - wish me luck!! Thank goodness its not raining today!

    I wish I could post this website as a reference. :D :D (I'd pay you all well. )

    Thinking of you honey! Hope the agency is ok - some are good, some are a bit 'salesy'... my mum has had an agency for about 25 years, and I worked as a consultant for around 4 before I got into venue management and, currently, mortgages (mixed bag!!)... and the horror stories I'd heard... gulp!!

    Let us know how you got on - I have no doubt that your voracity and new found confidence will be a real asset and you should have a job pinned down in no time (as long as the jobs are around for the taking, it's a tough time)...

    HUGE good lucks and well dones and all that heading your way.

    A xx
