So long ago back in April I had handed in an application form at a department kind of store down the road from me called OUTFIT. Its a store that sells a variety of brands like Dorothy Perkins, Miss Selfridge, Topshop, Topman and more under one roof!! (Just remember that I said April now).
Well anyway a few weeks ago in mid July I had a phone call from the same store asking me if I was still interested in a job and invited me down for an interview! (At this point I was already bouncing off of the walls as I have NEVER been invited to an INTERVIEW before, regardless of how many countless CV's (application forms) I have given out this year.) So the interview came... And I don't think I have felt that kind of nervous before. I was totally bricking it, I have no idea why I was no nervous about it, its all that I could think about for 2 full days, I couldn't sleep well and I was even a little ill, so yeah, it wasn't the best couple of days... But anyway the interview came, I thought it went really good and I came out of there in a really positive mood thinking of how well that actually went for my first ever interview, and slapping myself for worrying so much about it!
So a couple of days past, and then a week pasted, and I had pretty much given up on the hope that I had got the job and pushed into the back of mind and thought of it as a good experience. So I went away for a weekend (future blog post coming very soon) and didn't think about it much.
Last night me and my friends had a little sleepover... (SIDE-NOTE, IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE KATY PERRY MOVIE, YOU ARE REALLY MISSING OUT!!!!) So this morning I woke up to my phone vibrating, after waking up thinking "what's that noise?" then realising it was my phone, I picked it up and just stared at it as if I had no idea what it was (NOT THE BEST MORNING PERSON RIGHT HERE...) So after I had come around I realised it was OUTFIT calling me, I rang them back, and to my utmost surprise they offered me a job!! I just bursed into happiness and was pretty speechless really thinking of how much an achievement this was, THIS IS MY FIRST ACTUAL JOB HERE!!
I'm going to be placed on the Dorothy Perkins department on the shop floor dealing with customers, fitting mannequins, making the department look the best as it can be and more! I am so exited!! :D I start on the 31st of this month (August) with an induction and then will work one evening a week and a Saturday, a total of an 8 hour contract!!
I am soooo happy!! There are also 2 other people that I know who also have got a job there, so it should be fun!! AHHHHHH!!!! :D
