Appointment with Hays Recruitment

sunny 30 °C

Appointment with Hays Recruitment at their Eagle Street, Brisbane today at 2pm. It went quite well, more a case of Hays figuring out where my key skills were and getting an idea of the local job market. I'm getting the impression that Brisbane isn't exactly leading the way in terms of industry as the consultant stated the city shuts down for Christmas and New Year until next week. Weird.

Interview with CITEC Completed

sunny 30 °C

Interview with CITEC done! The interview was held at their Edward Street, Brisbane office. I felt I gave a good account of myself and will know within the next 2 to 4 weeks if I've been successful. I was the last person to be interviewed, which I was expecting, but the person who signs off on jobs is on holiday for another couple weeks!

Landed into Sunshine

- And Immigration Let Me In!

Landed into Sydney soon after 6am local time, feeling tired and needing a shower. Customs and Immigration was a breeze, no questions asked & beat my wife to the baggage carousel! She did not like that.

The Final Act - Seeing Matilda in the West End

overcast 12 °C

The final act before flying out to Australia was seeing 'Matilda - The Musical' at the Cambridge Theatre in London's West End. I was pleasantly surprised with how good it was & felt it was a fitting way to say good-bye to England.
