Job Hunting ...

Boy, oh boy, someone in my office is gonna get the boot pretty soon. And thank god it's not me, well hopefully it's not me!

'Honest boss, I do my work, I only blog when I'm free ...' (LOL, yeah right Spiff!)

There is this person in my office who is kinda, I wouldn't say blur, but tends not to use too much of common sense when it comes to working (and it's not me okay, though I do have traits like that). She is always driving the powers that be up the wall. And the past few weeks she's been pretty good at it.

My boss has been pretty patient with her but recently she's been pissing my boss off everyday. Boss lady has been in a foul mood every morning when she comes in and I can hear her screaming at this person (yes, screaming!). I've been smart enough to stay out of my boss's way for the past week ... LOL!

I think today was the final straw for my boss. After some shouting outside at this girl, my boss barged into my room, and said ...

'Nick, I need you to place an Advert out for a new staff, cos she drives me up the wall!'

Before I can reply she starts to complain in one continuous sentence about what did person did to piss her off. I shall not get into the exact details here but I just nodded my head and said ...

'Ok boss, I'll get the advert out by Monday'

Man, was she fuming! I've seen my boss mad with people before and you really don't want her being mad with you! Not a nice feeling. She's a nice person but don't piss her off. I have before and I felt her wrath many times!

So, today I spent my morning filling out details online in one of those job recruitment agencies. When we look for staff over here, I'd normally opt for the online recruitment agencies rather that the newspapers. Shelf life for newspaper is way too short unlike the online ones that has a longer shelf life.

So, while browsing online I came across one site that has loads of jobs on offer. I'd have recommended it to that girl in my office but unfortunately, unless she's willing to relocate to London, then she's out of luck cos they're all about jobs in London ... (ok, ok I shouldn't be joking about stuff like this).

I got intrigued and checked out the site further (who knows maybe one day some nice Ad Agency in London just may hire me ... LOL!) and found out that they have a very comprehensive job database. It's so easy to search for all kinds of London jobs by just keying in the kind of job you're looking for in their search box and you're offered with a whole list of jobs to choose from. Hmmm, I wonder if Arsenal FC is looking for any new players to fill in Thierry Henry's place, I just might apply ... hehehe ... Not that I'm any good at football mind you.

I'd better get back to getting that vacancy advert done for my boss or before you know it, I'll be the one looking for a new job!

Hey Spiff! Her days are definitely numbered... pity also people like that, maybe she lost some screws in her head! She probably needs a lot of coaching and training.

I've been fired before (not that I was blur), it wasn't a great feeling. I was fuming for weeks!

Sweetiepie, I do pity her, but sometimes I do see my boss's point of view too. Oh, well like I said, better her than me. Oh and I'm been fired before too so I know how it feels.
