Fern Britton claiming we "are all very fond of Kerry" (Katona/McFadden/whatever name shes touting now)...
I may sue for slander.

I found Kerry's speech pattern somewhat "Ozzy Osbourne" in the clip I saw of that interview.
All right, so I MADE a mistake! ONE MISTAKE!
Can't a man start over?! Do I have to keep on PAYING?! HUH?!
Maybe I should make another mistake! ...maybe TWO more!

Got turned down for a job a full 3 minutes into the interview. Not skilled enough. They could read my CV, why invite me in? :x FFS. Took 50 minutes to get there too on the bus.


:x


What a waste of time and money.


Also, it was a junior position where they train you. Still not experienced and skilled enough. I'll never get a job at this rate.



PS - Did I mention the 50 minute (or so) bus ride??

If it was me, I would write a letter of complaint. It's incredibly unprofessional for them to call you in for interview when they could have determined that you're not skilled enough from the CV. They've wasted your time; not just the bus journey, but also the time you spent preparing for and worrying about the interview. Also, if you were already in employment, you might have taken a day/half-day off for this interview and lost some of your leave entitlement due to their incompetence. Someone needs a bollocking for this and writing a letter/email of complaint would hopefully get them one.

As for the skills gap, it might be worth seeing whether your local Connexions office will offer advice to you. If you're over 19, not all offices will be able to help, but it's worth checking.

On these forums, DragonMaiden might be a good person to speak to about this.
I think she works for JobCentre Plus. I'm guessing she probably wouldn't want to spend large chunks of her free time offering employment/training guidance to people on here, but she might be able to give you some pointers on where else you could seek advice in your local area.

Stupid bitch who put the needle in my arm.

Went to give blood, she took AGES finding a vein my arm, and then still fucks up. It comes up in a massive bruise and she looks completely flabbergasted, shouting for the actual nurse to come and help her out.

I knew something was wrong when it went in, last time I donated it was fine. Didn't hurt AT all, not even the 'sharp scratch' that they said happened, yet it was fucking agony when it went in this time. And it still is now.

And they had the audacity to say "do you want me to try your other arm?"
Well no I fucking don't thanks a lot! I don't want BOTH my arms in pain/pretty much unusable.
