Yes!

Did you submit, PD?
As he told her that he loved her she gazed into his eyes, wondering, as she noted the infestation of eyelash mites, the tiny deodicids burrowing into his follicles to eat the greasy sebum therein, each female laying up to 25 eggs in a single follicle, causing inflammation, whether the eyes are truly the windows of the soul; and, if so, his soul needed regrouting.

You definitely should, Skips!

No, I decided against it. My back is really not good at the moment and the job is to start immediately, full time, high pressure. Something else will come up. I was a bit down about it yesterday but it's the right choice for now. Thanks for your help with the cover letter. I will save it for next time.

Definitely apply Skips!

This isn’t really a new job but a new client. I did a test piece for them back in the summer, they’ve finally finished sorting me out a supplier and have asked if I’d be available to do the equivalent of a week a month from January. We need to sort out the details but as a freelancer I’m really pleased to have that sort of confirmed work a month (the pay is decent too).

I’m an editor/proofreader/tutor. This is the second big new client I’ve picked up this year and for the first time in a long time I’ve got worked booked in a month or so in advance (very unusual!) Aren’t you a freelancer too Lazz (or have I made that up)?

Ah, excellent! I know what you mean about booking work up that far in advance - I’m a freelance translator and an occasional copywriter. It’s always worth a celebration when you confirm a new client, in my world. :toot:

Thats brilliant Dem! Great to have the security of a regular gig.

I'm all for celebrating the freelancing as much as anything else!

Well done Demelza!

I have applied. I have a zoom call with the hiring manager at 9:30 (not about this) and I'm hoping she doesn't mention it as I feel really nervous about it all.

Woohoo!

pd, I'm sorry you didn't apply for yours (but your reasons are your reasons). I thought it looked like a good fit on paper.

I had to get the form signed by my line manager, which should technically be Hug-Man, but I went over his head and it's been signed by his manager (who is also the person doing the hiring so I'm taking that as a positive).
