CRP: Historical Reseach Centre – Skype Interview

I’ve just this second (well 10 mins ago) finished yet another Skype interview for the Cultural Representative Programme, notably the Historical Research Centre with a Yummy Jobs representative. I was a bit more organised this time so I’d like to take this fresh mind set and give you a full play by play of what…

The Magic of Nailing that Face to Face Interview.

So yesterday I had my first face to face interview for quite a while, now we’ve already established that I am not the best at interviewing / talking over the telephone (see previous interview based posts), so this one needed to go well for the sake of my sanity. On a slightly related note: recently…

The Disney Envy.

Also known as – The Disney Life Crisis   So I recently turned 24. I’m currently living at home with my mum – my stepdad, teenage sister and 2 cats in tow. I have a pretty standard office job and having worked for the company for 3 years this month I’d say my job is…

My Relationship with Alnwick

Alnwick Castle Video Alnwick Gardens Video Hi! I promised I’d get back to this – so here we go: A couple of weeks ago myself and my very good friend decided to go for an impromptu trip to Alnwick Castle and Gardens – exciting! – albeit not for the first time. Together we’d visited the…

A Northerner in London: A few thoughts from my recent London trip

An abundance of pictures and further stories to follow… 1) There is something very comforting about a familiar Northern accent. 2) There is something very disconcerting about being the only one with a Northern accent. 3) It is very possible to spend 48 hours in the Capital City and only spend £30. 4) Do not stand…

Mother’s Day Celebrations

My momma is an incredibly annoying human sometimes. She can’t handle her alcohol, she doesn’t understand sarcasm, and sometimes she likes to shout for no apparent reason. But I love her. When I was struggling during my degree, she was always there on the other end of the phone no matter what the time of…

24: The First Week

It has now been 7 days since I hit the big 2-4 (sarcasm: I know I’m not that old) and it’s been a hectic one! Where did we last leave off? So you know that on my actual birthday I went out for a nice meal with the family and on Tuesday I had my…

My 24th Birthday

Now, contrary to what you may insinuate from my previous post. I really really enjoyed my birthday this year. Never one to look forward to such occasions, and never one to throw massive “me me me” celebrations, this year’s has been quite the event! On Monday morning I woke up for work, like any other week…

Why 21st Century Birthdays suck:

Forgive my ignorance. I was born in 1992, and as a 90’s baby I have the luxury of technical competency and the safe knowledge that my life does not revolve around my phone or Facebook; Knowledge that my younger sister – for example – a millennium baby, probably does not. On Monday I celebrate my…

My very accurate (Phone) interview process:

Also known as “Why I need to try CBT” Stage 1 – see’s a job with an abundance of potential; Stage 2 – spends at least 3 hours revamping CV and rewriting cover letter, attacking all appropriate key words in Job Specification. We are now the PERFECT candidate. Presses submit. Stage 3 – Forgets what…
