Hello all, I had a wonderful phonecall from youngest dd, about a job she had been invited to attend a group interview. This venture did not begin in the best way possible; so beginnig at the start of the whole diasco, she got the notification of the interview. About 30 minutes (or less) before the interview process was due to begin. No other applicant from her local Job Search Centre attended, because none of them had been informed of this event! The best thingnabout the interview process, was that dd was shortlisted to be in the 25 people to go to the next step of the elimination process; she was also commended for attending the interview on such short notice, and was told by the intervier, that it was one of the reasons that she was shortlisted to go to the second part of the process.
Everything went downhill from that point; she was given an info sheet, which included the date, time and address where the next interview was to be held. So on that day she arrived at the address that was on her information sheet, only to be informed that she was in the wrong place, so she showed the receptionist the informatoion sheet, just to prove that the error wasn't her fault! She contacted the correct place, once she knew where she was meant to be, only to be told that the interview process had begun, and it was too late for her to get there. She was understandably extremely upset about the whole thing, because she thought she had missed out on a very good chance of having full time employment! full!
She received a phonecall yesterday morning, informing her that she was included in the 25 people who were chosen to continue on to the 4 day training, beginning later today (Tuesday), and that she was to attend for her Medical assessment, including drug & alcohol testing. The Receptionist, whom shenhad dealt with on the day of the mighty stuffup, actually contacted the boss of the company conducting the interviews, to find out what was going on, and also mentioned how upset dd had been, when she was told she was at the wrong place for the interview. The boss then instructed the worker, that because of all the things that had gone wrong for her; he wanted to give her a fair chance to be one of those who were getting a job! So she begins the Job Training later today, at 11:00am S.A. time, and begins work next week. Now dd is one verry happy young woman, and is really looking forward to having a job!
Continuing on the new job status amongst my girls, DD4 has also joined the workforce. She got herself a job waitressing, at one of the local hotels, for the dinner shift. She has already had her trial shifts, and was paid cash in hand for now, which will be setup properly once the owners get back from a short holiday! She quite likes it also, which is a bonus, and is already planning on doing the alcohol accreditation course, so that she can work in other areas of the hotel.
All I need now is for dd3 to be able to find a job, then everything will begin to get easier for her family also! She, and her partner, have just purxhased a block of land, and are in the process of choosing a plan for their house, and once that has been built, and is ready to move in, the will finally be in a house that is not derelict, and is also large enough for them to fit in comfortably! Things are finally beginning to fall into place for my girls, so there will be a little less for me to worry about!
