Default Ever done an interview in your Jammies?

I just did

It was 09.30 Aussie time and 22.30 here. It was a surreal experience being on speaker phone to 4 people who were just starting their Monday when I was still on Sunday night!

I don't think I'll get it, as they seem to have had other people to interview, who I think are already in Aus.

But hey! It's a start!

Thanks K. I would love to get it but I know they had local candidates to interview.

I should know in the next couple of days but I'm not holding my breath x

make sure you let us know how you got on

and like we always tell everyone else, any interview experience is good as it gives you an idea of the questions asked and what they are looking for

good luck

No but I did do an interview from a phone box on the edge of the beach in Tahiti in my swimmers once

It was really weird. And there was a slight time delay which didn't help. That was a fair few years ago now. I didn't get the job but did get an associated job for the same people, so must have done something right.

Good luck with yours!
