My last day of work at my old job was the 6th of September. I was made redundant because the charity ran out of money and had to close down. I'm still waiting for my redundancy pay to come through but they say it should be less than six weeks from my application (About the 13th/14th of September). I haven't really been looking for another job until the last week.

  • My old employer referred me to a careers advice group who gave me some details about a catering job at the local football stadium. I said yes to them passing on my CV, which I didn't know I had.
  • Some friends have been looking out for me and have suggested some possible jobs. One of them was at a school as a food technician, preparing ingredients for classes. I didn't apply for that because of my phobia of schools.
  • Another one was at a theatre about thirty miles away as a marketing assistant. I'm going to apply for that because it sounds interesting. It would be proof reading programmes and posters, archiving press comments, distributing posters, etc. (Feel free to correct any mistakes I make)
  • Today I signed on for Job Seeker's Allowance. Yes, I'm sponging off the givernment [sic] but at least I'm actually looking for a job this time. I was on it two years ago but I was so drugged up I shouldn't have been looking for a job at all. I need to apply to two jobs a week to be able to get any money.
  • I got home this afternoon to an email from the football stadium asking me to go for a job interview in two weeks.
  • But I know naff-all about cooking, despite two years of working in a kitchen.

Update 15/10/2007: I found out the job at the football stadium isn't actually working in the conference rooms I was originally told it would be. It's going to be flipping burgers on match days. Great. I'll go to the interview anyway because I need to show I've been doing something for the Job Seeker's Allowance.

Can I ask what the hell "naff-all" is? Cheesy
@JWKobayashi: "Nothing"
I love your blog layout. Also, great entry...
*Today I had an email from the theatre saying they had already chosen their interview candidates but I could send my CV in anyway for possible future roles.

*My old employer said she had the funding to go ahead with her project and she would like to employ me again. I'm not sure if I want to work there again after two years. It might be time to move on. I think she was talking about 15 hours a week which wouldn't be too bad but it would probably be barely above minimum wage.
