To Stand Or Sit

November 28th, 2005 at 07:27pm

Today I had two job interviews, although one was a recruitment agency getting to know me better. During the day, on two occasions (only one was for a job interview) I was sitting, and I met somebody who wanted to shake my hand, I shook their hand and then I realised I hadn’t stood, which made me feel a bit guilty. The people involved didn’t seem to mind, but I would have prefered to have been standing.

Anyway, the job interviews went reasonably well, I should know the result of one later this week or early next week. I have another job interview tomorrow morning, but before that I have to rush out to Woden to pick up some papers. Thankfully the rest of tomorrow will be much more relaxing than today.

One thing I did enjoy (even though I got a bit wet) was a walk I took between interviews up past the Linux.Conf.Au 2005 venue, it brought back a lot of memories when I saw people walking about inside the venue, and even more memories when I walked past the food place for lack of a better description.

    I agree Sam, I feel it is always polite to stand to shake hands if you are meeting someone for the first time, especially if they are female. Good luck with the job hunting, let us know how it all goes. You should be expecting you VCE results soon also, correct? Keep us informed on that aswell.

    Yes, well I managed to remember to stand today.

    Here in the ACT we have a slightly odd system where only people who are planning on going directly to University sit the AST (ACT Scaling Test or something like that) which then helps to calculate the University Admission Index based on course scores.

    I personally, mainly sue to illness in year 10, didn’t do a “tertiary” package. I still get a year 12 certificate and can go on to TAFE if I want to (which I probably will do once I have some work sorted out, the TAFEs are nice and flexible) and then from there Uni is an option as a mature age entrant.

    I’ve had a few job interviews and they have all gone pretty well so far, I’ve been invited back to one place for a second interview tomorrow (thankfully it is in the morning as the afternoon would have thrown my schedule for Sydney preparations right out)
