I've just been offered a job. This is slightly insane, since until I got a phonecall from the company this morning, I'd never heard of them. Let me explain.
Last Wednesday afternoon I answered an email ad asking for voluntary help to launch an award scheme. On Thursday, I had an interview with someone at the award organisers who was very helpful and enthusiastic about me using a work placement with them as a way to find a permanent job with one of their contacts. She obviously liked me and passed my CV on to one of agencies organising the launch party, who called me this morning to come in and have a chat. I went along, not knowing quite what to expect and lo and behold, they want to offer me a permanent job!
So the upshot is I'm going to do the voluntary thing for two weeks and if I like what I'm doing, I can stay on permanently. Hoorah!
God is brilliant!
