As some of you know, I was made redundant from Hewlett-Packard at the start of the year.
It’s been an awful 2 months with interviews and knock backs. To the point I was looking at taking a 10k drop.
A shit morning yesterday when I was told at a third interview they had mis-described the role and it was a junior position, meaning a big drop in salary.
Then at 1730 I had a call from HR of a large company that I interviewed with 6 weeks ago. An odd call where he said "I think I have a job offer for you but need to check"
I’ve been feeling quite negative the last few weeks and expected a call back to say it was a mistake.
Call this morning with a formal offer, salary matched previous role and a better package. I start the second week of April.
I can’t describe just what a relief this is!
It’s a good company with worldwide reputation. Some of my ex colleagues work there already and are very happy.
After 2 months of panic and worry I had to share!!
Fantastic news. When are you booking your summer European tour then?
Christ, HR don’t know what they’ve let themselves in for!
Really pleased for you mate
Hopefully it’s relatively local and you’re not having to trade down to a crap commute etc.
Excellent news !
I assume you’ve explained that a condition of accepting the job is that they’ll let you get away early on Friday June 29th.
Great news - all the best with the new job
That is fab news mate - really chuffed for you: get on the lash - it’s Bumsex Thursday
Thanks guys. Don’t normally like “look at me” topics but really had to share
Commute is a bit further but out of town so less traffic.
I know how first hand how depressing a long period of unemployment can get,
Really pleased for you
Well done, really pleased for you. You must be so relieved after all that worry.
Glad to hear your good news. I bet your right arm will also enjoy the rest.
But I’ve not finished the hub yet
