Thanks for the good luck wishes.

It was 3 scenarios that I'd been given time to prepare for and you're trying to troubleshoot with very little information and no interaction from the panel of interviewers.

Anyways it was strange and if I'm successful in this stage then it'll be two more 'chats' with higher-ups before anything is offered.

Who knows what's going to happen.

That’s a lot of hoops, Duo. Is it an American company?

Congratulations, Skips.

Yes it's another US company. They'll need to offer a fair whack for me to leave my current post but I'm now curious to see how far it goes.

Congratulations Skips! That's really exciting!

Fingers crossed Duo (though I do think you're insane putting yourself through all of that).

I'm struggling to decide whether to apply for another role or not. The form is completed and all I need to do is hit submit, but I really don't know. How do you decide? I've been going round and round in circles for weeks with it. It was so much easier when I hated where I worked.

Ordinarily I wouldn't worry, but it's a small community with limited options and it all feels way more political than it should. I'm also privy to information which is making me think on, but I just don't know how things will pan out.

Congratulations on the new offer, Skips, and good luck with the rest of your round, Duo.

And you should definitely apply Beena.

I saw a job posted internally recently that I was actually interested in/excited about. But it had been so long since I’ve seen anything my CV was woefully out of date. Anyway, I’ve been working on it at an absolute snails pace (is anything more tortuous? :ruby: ) and finally pushed it to good enough to apply this evening. I am not expecting anything especially as at this point the posting has been up for over two weeks, and it went external too, so there are almost certainly hundreds of applicants. Anyway. First one for years and at least my CV is updated and usable now.

Any news, Epp?

I applied, got offered an interview, but I decided to withdraw. My heart wasn't really in it. I'm not sure what my heart is in.

Still, at least my CV is up to date and going through the process made me realise where there are gaps in my CPD. So not wasted.
