It’s a bit of a busy time at the moment with the job hunt in full swing and Old Boys weekend in the near future I have lots to be thinking about.

Having spent the weekend on the Reed recruitment and monster websites I managed to apply for 75 different jobs. Most of these I don’t expect to get further than clicking the “Apply” button but I am hoping that a few will get back to me and ask me to come and be interviewed.

I also applied to a job at the Denman Group in Reigate which I had seen in the local paper and I went for an interview there on Monday of this week. The location was superb – a farm in rural surrey – and the job was doing what I find most interesting – supporting users.

A few weeks ago I completed an online test for a company called Wavex who are based in Holborn in London. Wavex came across as a very impressive company from their website and when I completed the test I felt I had not done well enough to get any further. A week or so later I received an email saying that I had done well at the test and they would like to have me back for a phone interview. I spoke with their Helpdesk manager at the end of last week and was told they would like me to come in for a face-face interview to further assess my suitability. Unfortunately they have currently scheduled a date for when I am unavailable so I am trying to get this rearranged.

Old Boys is looking like it’s going to be a good weekend. I’m looking forward to seeing all the current HB students who I haven’t seen for a while and the graduates who have left and are coming back to Durham again. It’s also going to be a good chance for me to come to terms with the situation between me and Kate. Since we split up in May I don’t think we have had a proper chance to spend time together. I think I need to use this weekend to fully sort my feelings and just get used to the fact we are just friends now.

I am slightly annoyed that the £1.50 pints that used to be a good “two-coiner” at the bar have gone up to £1.55 and as such I am going to have to buy a pint and pack of McCoy’s to spend a nice £2.00 at the Vernon.

Hopefully I will have a job by the start of November and will be able to start paying off my student loan and will have got my life back in order as well.
