It's been a while since my last post. For those who thought or maybe hoped that I got a job, noup, that's not the case. I just went on vacations 🙂 and now I'm back. You would think that there won't be nothing to talk about, at least regarding job interviews etc. But! Even when … Continue reading Back to reality
Few days ago I was back at my Faculty. As I steped over the treshold, I again felt like a student. It's always the same feeling. Faculty is connected with you being a student and so you feel like one. It's really funny that you don't overgrow this 🙂 I was there for a PhD … Continue reading Revisiting the past

But they had some strange form with a lot of personal data which already invaded the … Continue reading Finding of March week 3
I have really funny story. That genetic company where I had an interview is making me wonder what is going on... Some employers really are something special 🙂 I was the first one of a group of friends who applied and got to the interview. In the February one other friend applied for the same … Continue reading Crazy employer or what?

I'm so angry! You know that feeling when you thought you have it... and then you don't. Well I didn't feel quite like that, because I'm more of a pessimist, but I hoped. I really hoped that I would get this job. It for a position at the Ministry of environment (not exact name, but … Continue reading Employers making fools out of job seekers
