A Little Update On My New Job ;-)

Sat May 27, 2006 5:52 pm

Well, as you may know, I've just started a new job  Wink
Fort the last 4 days I've been up in Livingston (near Edinburgh) training, and the hotel I stopped at was right under the approach To r06 @ EDI.
Well, first of all:
Kazzie - I get to sell Muse MP3 players  Wink

Anyway, the new store that I'll be working in opens on Thursday next week so from now on, my posting on a.net will be heavily restricted  Wink

My Job title is: Technical Sales Assistant, which basically means I can tell you everything about the PC equipment we have (or I should be able to anyway  Wink )

So, any questions, feel free to ask  Wink

Jobs are hard to come by in the UK for younger people, you need a degree to do anything now, it's that competitive.

Thats so true, apparently tesco shelves stackers are some of the smartest people around in there field and because jobs are so competitive they cant get a job at there profession and are left to stack shelves for about 4 pounds an hour.

GKirk's recent foray into the realm of the employed came to an abrupt halt today, when managers discovered their employee 'interfacing' with computer equipment in a non-proscribed manner.
