The Interview.

A little late but I was in Melbourne for the weekend. I'll follow up with a post about that soon enough.

ROAR?

So today is the day. My interview. I think I'm ready, I've looked at possible interview questions, gone over the selection criteria, am wearing a great suit...I even had a dry run last Friday (I know, I'm anal) to check how long it would take me to get there and park nearby and walk in. I work about 3km from the CBD at the top of a hill and the bus route is very unreliable.

Today I woke up to the radio and discovered a spanner in the works. Sunday was the A-League (our national soccer competition) Grand Final. The Brisbane Roar made it for the first time after a few terrible seasons. The game was amazing, nil all at full time, down 2-0 during extra time to come back with two goals during the final 5 minutes. Then in the penalty shoot-out they won 4-2. It was the best soccer game I've ever been to (of maybe 5 games :-P).

Today there will be a parade in the city to celebrate their win. Sending thousands of people to the public square I need to be at for my interview...at the time I need to be there. It could be an absolute nightmare for traffic and parking. Stressing a little but I do have a backup plan. Was tempted to just have the day off 'sick' but I couldn't bring myself to do it.

Wish me luck.

Finally

I got an interview. Next Tuesday via video conference, would have been great to fly down and even better if it had been on Friday when I'll be down there for the weekend! But still, I'm very happy that there has finally been some progress in the selection process and even happier that I made it through :-)
