Hello from a potential colleague

who are you? where are you? what do you do? do you go sailing down the Thames? canoeing down the nile? or trainspotting at Clapham junction?

Hello from a potential colleague

Post by The Geek » Mon Sep 01, 2008 10:43 pm

Hi all, just registered and thought I would say hello.

Half way through my application and hope to have it posted by end of this week. Is this when I start praying?

Any tips before I send it?

You start praying when you get in :slhehe:

Tips before you send it.

Keep a copy, or at least notes of the examples you have given as you may be asked about these at assessment. :wink:

Look arround the site, there is loads of advice. :slgo:

Welcome to the fold :slclap: :slcud:

What he said about keeping a copy of your questions.

I would also send it recorded delivery if you plan to post it - I know someone who applied and the recruitment company managed to lose their application.

Hi Gee, On or Off road? Welcome either way!

Fingers crossed for your application, that is probably the hardest bit. Is anyone in the know (HR friend) proof reading it for you?

all the best,

JA

Thanks for the advice.

I am applying for a TO job and hopefully look forward to joining y'all within the next couple of years (with luck :slhd: ).

I'll keep you all posted on my progress.
