New Opportunities...

Finally my first ever interview for a graduate scheme - Edelman has replied!

I am to go there on the 27th of this month for a day of tests and tricks to tell whether I am what they require. There shall be intelligence tests, presentations and other skill tests - I'm rather looking forward to it, actually - I haven't done anything like that for ages!

It has really hit home that I shall be graduating in just a few short months. Feels very odd - far too grown up and somehow right, very strange.

Gosh once I get a job I will have to be adult about things and understand insurance and mortgages. I will buy shoes because they won't hurt my feet or disintegrate within one month, rather than because they are red, pointy and shiny, and I shall take up gardening and listening to the archers... such things are expected of sensible people, or so I imagine. Or maybe that's the elderly...

Anyway I ramble, I am really excited about my first interview, and although I am very pleased I hope it won't be my last, that way I stand a better chance that I will land the job that is perfect for me(please) and it won't matter so much if things do not work the way I would like on the 27th (although I really want them to).

That's rather sensible isn't it?

Congrats! And best of luck. Plus, they do love their bloggers.

Er..... I'll have you know I have not succumbed to any of the above 'adult' traits thank you very much! (except a mortgage)

Great. In preparation read up on the Edelman bloggers (in particular Richard Edelman) and note that blogging is very much on their agenda.

Congratulations! I too have been invited for interview by Edelman, but have had to politely decline as I have already accepted a position at Chime. I have been a fan of your blog for a while, and it would have been great to meet you. Looking forward to reading your experience of the assessment day, and wish you luck!
