30 CV’s and Covering letters sent, 3 meetings with recruitment consultants and 12 interviews later…. I have a job.
On Monday I officially start work at Ogilvy Melbourne in a newly created role (just for little old me!). Clients include BMW, Priceline (Oz version of Boots), Mini, AAMI Insurance (like Axa UK) and a load of others.
Jules and I are going to play a round of golf on Sunday to celebrate. Been practicing all week. Fingers crossed I have a good game.
Observation Of The Day: Creating lag in the golf swing is mega hard. I might just give up and embrace the casting.
New Finds: A cheeky bike shop up the road in Port Melbourne sells cheapo bikes with interest free credit. Given cycling to work takes 20mins and trams take 45mins I brought myself a cheeky cycle. Quicker and bit of a cardio blast – which if you read about the running incident is much needed.
Animal Watch: Quiet. Although I saw a fly today which looked like it took steroids. Twas massive. You would not want to accidentally swallow that one. Would be a meal in itself. No wonder the spiders are so big over here. I think the fly itself was on par with the size of a small house spider in the UK.
