    tomorrow!!
    Having been made redundant, I've managed to get an interview for one of the many jobs I've applied for.
    I knew the interview date was tomorrow but assumed as they'd not been in touch, I hadn't been shortlisted. Turns out I have. Now need to do some serious swatting in preparation!!
    Maybe things are on the up. Who knows?!

    Well I didn't get the job and I'm gutted

    My feedback was that I interviewed extremely well and had all the relevant knowledge and experience, but as I've been out of the area for 9yrs, they appointed someone who was currently working in the area
