The new job at my existing work has finally been advertised. I’ve known it was coming for a while; however it hadn’t been ‘official’ yet therefore there hadn’t been a point in me even thinking about it. In fact I really could do without having to think about work as I’m so much happier when I can just empty my mind while sitting in the sun or cutting the grass.
But it’s got to be done – the deadline for this job is this coming Friday. Thankfully I’ll be an internal applicant, so all I have to do is fill out half a page of why I think I’m suitable (which I bloody well am), plus, attach my CV.
Tonight I’m going to give my CV an overhaul in line with the JD (doesn’t need that much tweaking to be honest), and tomorrow I’ll be stating my reason for the application and outlining my suitability for the post.
The only anticipated difficulty/obstacle in my way might be that apparently there is already someone within the company who is likely to get the job. Or so I’ve been told. I don’t know who this person is, but it must be quite a strong contender. And since I only started there in February, they may well have the advantage. As long as I get an interview I’m not too bothered. It’s only if I don’t even get an interview that all hell will break loose here at lenina’s headquarters! In that case, I’ll be fucking angry and shall seriously start looking elsewhere 😐
