I spent three and a half hours this morning being tested and interviewed at an employment agency. Such was my relief to sit down at a keyboard and perform familiar tasks without whining interruption or demands that I felt really relaxed, and aced the whole test. Well, except the bit where I had to correct some French. You'll be pleased to hear that my English spelling is excellent. In Excel I had to work out some averages and then do a 3D bar chart - my first ever, and under test conditions. I'm afraid I shouted "YES!" and laughed when it came out right.
The interview was partly in French and was extremely thorough. I mean, can you remember what you did in a two month gap between jobs twenty years ago? In all it was a very positive experience and, although there is certainly no guarantee that I'll get work through them, they are happy to have me on their books until such time as I do not need to be.
Now I'd better change into my drone clothes and go where the nappies are full and the days are long.
