I can has job! [Oct. 12th, 2007|10:14 am]
Saphron
[mood |excitedemployed]

Yay. I have just accepted a job at the university examinations office! I got the offer last night, I've thought about it and I'm really excited! It is going to be a big change from my this and that, here and there lifestyle and I can't wait. It is going to be nice to have a set schedule and not to mention a set salary. I'm jumping in the deep end though with Exams (note the capital) starting at the end of the month! Eeeee!

Courtney and Natalie be warned: I will be hunting you down to consume caffeinated beverages with me on a regular basis.

Even better I don't have to change my doctor. The uni doctors' office had just decided to stop treating alumni and now I won't have to go through the hassle of finding a new doctor. I love Dr Mauger she is the only doctor I've ever had who seemed to give a damn AND realise that people have different immune systems.

Yay!

Congrats. I wonder if it was my refereeing that swung it :D

Probably :p

Thank you by the way. I meant to email you about it but they were too hot off the mark. Yay.

I think also the interviewer being a cat person helped. We talked about cats.

Congratulations!

I had Dr Pat Mauger at uni and she was very good.

She is great. She's nice AND good at her job which is sadly a rare thing.

Timetabling, managing supervisors, various other make sure people have room + supervisor + exam sheets type stuff. Also organizing external exams and such. Probably sounds dull to a normal non-organizer type person but very much my cup of earl grey with lemon.

Sounds very suited to your abilities.

We should definitely take advantage of this to have tea, coffee or hot chocolate. :)

As someone who also enjoys organising, I say congratulations on getting a cool job :)

*squee* yay for you!

Also yes we should have tea soon, I miss you, it's been ages since we sat down for a proper chat!

We're having a spur of the moment long island iced tea night here tonight if you and Kim would like to join us? Providing we manage to find some triple sec...

Oooo... we may have triple sec... if not don't you live across the road from a liquor store? Cheap triple sec is fine for strong cocktails and the place next to the stationers have some VERY cheap triple sec... not that I, um, know the shelf content of most central Auckland liquor stores or anything... um... hmmm...

That is true. I think part of the reason I got the job is because I got on well with the interviewer and have a similar degree to most of the department which will be really nice. Also access to the staff training programs will be cool - it is meant to be one of the best in the world apparently. I'll be joining AUS and I might even join the SCR just because I love that building - we'll see.

Are you in the Clock Tower? The new buildings and renovations mean nothing is where it was when I was an undergrad. I will be in the Clock Tower apart from during Exams when I'll be helping take over Commerce A.
