My job isn't great but it allows me to be an insufferable know-it-all. More-so than usual I mean.

my job could be better.. don't love it, or hate it, but if i'd get to choose i wouldn't be working here.
may be the reason why i applied for school..
No, I don't need an attitude adjustment. You just need to fuck off.

Accenture are a bunch of massive cunts.

Here's why.

I applied for an apprenticeship in Customer Service/Tech Support with BT (Telecomms company in UK). They accepted my application, invited me to an assessment center. I went in, kicked ass in the interview (Seriously fucking nailed it), passed both the English and Maths assessments, and felt great about it.

The day after (4th May), I got a call from the HR Manager, offering me the job. I said "yes! Thank you! That's great!" She said that they would go and draw up a contract for me to sign and will be in touch. So I went away and wrote up a letter to my boss to give her my 4 weeks notice, then handed it in that night when I went to work.

Fast forward two weeks (18th May), and I get a call from BT. It's the HR Manager. She tells me that I can't have the job that they've offered to me and I've accepted, because apparently my maths grade isn't good enough. I tell her the situation, I've handed in my notice, you already offered me the job which I accepted, I live in a flat etc etc.

She said she would go and speak to Accenture (who train the apprentices) and plead with them.

The Monday after that weekend I get a call from her saying "Yeah they won't budge. You won't be getting this job at all."

So now I'm left in a position where I should have started my new job today, but instead of that, I'm unemployed as of Friday at 10pm.
for a fatty you're a serious intellectual lightweight.

thats intensely shit camm, you could probably take some degree of action on that, whether it be through BT or the assessment people.

on slightly happier news i just fucking nailed the interview. two middle-aged women doing it, totally buttered them up in a non-condescending way (opened doors, smiles, gentle hand shakes, please+thankyou and everything). did my research into all the shit around cheshire, threw in examples + figures when relevant and made them write fucking tons of notes, which i think is a good sign.

so yeah i'll find out tomorrow so here's hoping the other 9 interviewees were mongoloids!

now sat in hammock with a nice jamesons+ice and playing annoying music for the chavs a few doors down

Well that's fucked up Probably won't end up even there anyways. Got an interview on thursday for another IT gig. Just got an email from a recruiting company thru Monster wanting my CV. And adding to that I'm applying for a 6 month schooling thingy that will end in being hired for a consulting job. Not bad for a monday

And yayteds!

And also I keep getting Data Center job offerings from Reading and Michigan. Bah.
