Woot! Still employed

So I start a new job on Monday. Just another temp post – I’m not even moving company. In fact, I’m going to be working for the guy who’s office we seized the other week!

It’s still no where near approaching what I actually want to do, but it is another few weeks work (at least) and even sounds fairly interesting. It will look good on the CV, if nothing else.

It was quite sad today knowing it was my last day with the team. I thought I had another week in my current post till the temp agency rang me this morning and offered me the new job. We have had such a blast these last five months – there is no way the new job is going to be half as much fun. Who would have thought that twenty-three thousand old people would bring so much joy and happiness to a team of nine temps?

Just, where along the line did it get decided that I was actually going to turn out good at the office admin kind of stuff?

  1. Congrats. Life likes to decide your skill set – I think it had a good joke at mine too. For some reason I have a knack for accounts when I hate it with a passion. Well done on the lining up one job after the other though.

  2. Thank you 🙂

    It was all rather a whirl-wind. I’ve been ringing the temp agency (it’s an in-house agency) all week and they swore blind they had nothing for me. Then I get a phone call this morning. Alas, that’s how things work in this company – people are INCAPABLE of forward planning. My new boss only decided yesterday afternoon that he even wanted someone!

    Ah well, as you say, that’s another few weeks I don’t have to panic about too much. I will not get complacent though – CV tweaking and job application day tomorrow. More points to me if I get the blog in the CV… 😉

  3. Well, that’s good news then. At least it isn’t so bad. At the end of it, life always works out right? Now all you have to do is take things one step at a time and maybe, you never know who’s actually paying attention to what you do best. 🙂

  4. Perhaps it is. Though the worrying thought is, if a penguin is looking out for me, what evil is in store down the way? What small but vital part of the Penguin Nation’s plan for world domination is served by me getting a new temp post?
