Well done, stressful isnt it, I was wanting it over after 25 minutes. Now go have a drink it's over now just the wait, you know your references will be fine, it's in the bag . Well done again.

pmsl Claire I was on the wine during the interview!

Well I needed to calm my nerves! I felt like you Claire, seemed to go really well at the start, all the nurse manager questions I answered with ease and felt I bodged up the ones the nurse educator asked me. Oh well, what will be will be.

One things for sure, I hope I get this job cos I don't want to do another one of those!

Talking Re: Just had my telephone interview

your a woman after my own heart, maybe I would have done better if I was on the wine before and during rather than after!

Know how you feel, others who have had interviews were obviously lulling us into a false sense of security saying how easy the interview was, well they obvioulsy werent trying to get a job at the Mater .

Hope your referees get your references back quick smart, I'm still checking hotmail every 5 minutes!

Know what you mean Jackie, Mater only sounds right if you say it with an australian accent . It is handy that you can have all the info in front of you put at one point I couldnt find the bit of paper I needed .

Hey we'll be sitting sipping coffee by the river in no time!

Thank you Sue, thank you Mandy!

I can't say that I found it particularly easy to do. It was easy because I had notes infront of me, but I didn't like not seeing them in person.....very unnerving!
