So, brief life update.
I went from unemployed and sort of enjoying life, doing a bit of studying to get some computer qualifications…
Then on monday I get a phonecall at 5:30pm, it’s an interview offer, okay, cool, “when can I come in? Uh, I guess i’m free whenever…”
1:45pm Tuesday, I am in their office having an interview
2:10pm Tuesday, I get offered a job.
I start on Monday.
Well. That escalated quickly.
The catch however? The office is around Chessington, approximately 2 hours 30 minutes commute away. Meaning that essentially, I have 5 days to find a place to live, and then likely in the next month or two, i’m going to need to buy a car as well.
Oh my god the stress.
It’s also weird, I’ve only been out of a job for less than a month at this point, and suddenly i’m employed again after one interview/phonecall, with a job which sounds fantastic (emphasis on sounds) and has great career progression and training and in the field I want to be in…
Yet I can’t seem to feel happy, perhaps the fake/dodgy job offers I’ve had in the past have made me incredibly skeptical but my brain just can’t process why this man would want to hire me so quickly, are they just super desperate? Is this all a scam? I’m so scared and confused, all I can really do is find a temporary place to live and hope for the best.
I am viewing some potential places to live on Saturday, in house shares (as that’s the cheapest option), so wish me luck.
Rest assured there will be blog posts when I move and start work.
