Default So very tired...

Mr Platty has his interview tonight and I think I am more nervous than he is. Every time I think about moving to NZ I get a huge stab of fear/excitement (delete as applicable ) in my stomach, hence I hardly slept last night

What didn't help was my dear husband showing me the whole relocation and job package before bed last night and I realised we would be fools to pass this opportunity up so huge good luck vibes are needed tonight and a big thanks to all the advice and info you guys have provided.

Karma to help you with your nerves and for Mr Platty's interview
I still don't doubt coming to New Zealand was the best move I ever made. Even in spite of the last 2 months, I don't regret it.

I will be woking on the Alcatel ISAM IPTV solution for TVNZ & Telecom NZ, out of Hamilton, If we get to go over. We have 3 kids, our eldest has Autism, he is high functioning, so he can do everything everybody else does but he lacks social skills. we are trying to get PR before we go not just the WV that we were offered.

You called dear?

I would be an IP Network Solutions Designer should I be accepted for the position.

There will be some other selection to do once this 3rd interview is out of the way, but I'm looking forward to it. All we can do is what we can do!

Thank you all for your kind words of advice and support, I am sure you will know how the interview went almost before I do

When I went to the NZ expo, Alcatel was offering about 100 jobs country wide. I think I was chosen because I have worked for them before in Switzerland. I am Cisco trained though. I would like to hear your views about the whole thing, We are finding it a bit daunting to say the least.
