Happy to report that I accepted a job offer yesterday!!

I had 2 interviews last week - one for a post at the library in the next town over and one for the Waterstones in town (about a 10 minute walk from my flat). Both are part-time and, once I factor in travel expenses, pretty much the same pay. Waterstones is maternity cover until January and the library would've been permanent.

I heard back from the library first and, although I wasn't appointed to the post, they said they really liked me and my interview and offered me relief work - which I turned down because I was looking for something more reliable. Then about 30 minutes later Waterstones called and offered me the position!

I actually had a GREAT time at my Waterstones interview and ended up chatting with the two guys who interviewed me for over an hour. ;D They pretty much told me that it was mine and that I was far and away the best candidate (helloooo confidence boost) EXCEPT that I wouldn't be available for Christmas since I'll be back in the US. But then when he called me yesterday he said they were so impressed that they was no way they couldn't hire me.

Needless to say I'm very pleased!! I'll be starting mid-July, after my parents leave (they'll be here for a visit next week)! Woohoo!

Awesome! Congratulations!!!  ;D

I was in Inverness yesterday. I looked for you but you were either off yesterday or hasselling some poor tourist over his illegal parking.  Lol

I was hoping to see you as I was riding by so I could tell out the window... "Hey Ricky Baby"...

A late congratulations on the job!! I hope this isn't creepy, but I saw your post when I was looking through the job boards and wanted to say hi because I am also up in Elgin!  :) I'm going through a similiar sounding job search, hoping to get at least a part time soon. Do you mind me asking if you got any interviews before you had volunteering on your resume? I've been striking out pretty much everywhere so far. Also let me know if you want to get a drink or something sometime!

Thank you!! It's been a fabulous fit for me and SO nice to be able to get out of the house a few days a week and socialise. ;D Little do they know that I'd happily be around books all day for free...

Not creepy at all -- nice to know there's someone else up in Elgin. I only had one interview before I started volunteering, for a full time position down in Edinburgh but that's it. I didn't have any interview offers for things I applied for in Elgin. It was a pretty soul destroying process as (I'm sure you've noticed...) the job market here is pretty dire and low paying. But oh well. ::)

Also YES would definitely love to meet up. I had a wee look through your past posts and it looks like we have quite a bit in common! I'll PM you :)
