OK..as most might be aware I finish up this friday with the Contract role. I went for an Operations Managers position , running three sites in town..not a bad role really. I passed the first interview with the Property Manager, then the next Interview with the Nat Operations Mgr and the Regional Account Manager. All was good.
They recommended to the client that I be given the position, even though we did not have a degree or TRADE background = ( qualifications). That s why the Regional Mgr and Nat Operations Manager became involved in the Interview process as there was some concern as to whether or not i was proficient enough technically.
Aparently they were impressed..which is great, I was then put forward to the Customer, who owns multiple sites across the country and after nearly two weeks deliberation by them plus a very good word from OUR ACCOUNT MANAGER..I was turned down.
So its back to the drawing Board. We have oportinities with a new account they have just Won, a National Telco and I have some LONGER TERM IRONS in the fire as well.
I suspect that come Wednesday, I will also be contacting a mob who asked if i would do a short term fill in, in the CBD, its 10K PA less, but thats still miles in front of NO WORK or Gummit payed looking for work.
Its certainly not ideal, I’m not happy at not having got the job and thats all normal..it just kinda fks me off a tad. But nothing can be done about that.
So..once more into the breach as they say..keep looking and ya never know.
