I'm off to sunny Rotherham tomorrow morning for a job interview!… - almost, but not quite, entirely unlike tea
if I had to explain, you wouldn't understand

I'm off to sunny Rotherham tomorrow morning for a job interview!

Very nervous.

All came about when a friend I met at the first Photocamp (and subsequently followed each other on twitter) noticed I was job-hunting. I got a DM on twitter, saying that his friend was FD of a company who might have something. My CV was duly sent off, passed around and today I got a couple of calls from the Ops Director (long story, short version is my blackberry is useless), the latest of which actually got through, saying they had a role coming up soon - six month contract, was I available to come in for a chat?

Tomorrow?

To see if it's the sort of thing I might be interested in?

So, I'm off to sunny Rotherham. It's all quite exciting really.

Now, do I go for M1 -> M18 (which involves going past Meadowhall at about 9am), or cut across to the A1(M) then down to the M18 that way? Both have their pros and cons...

why past Meadowhall? Where is it at?

hope it goes well

oh and M1 has roadworks between J36 and J35 max speed 50 though doesn't seem to be bad just a bit slower than normal

That's networking at its finest. =)

I know nothing of the motorway system, but which would make the most sense for the daily commute? Worth knowing.

Regardless, good luck!

yeah, it's been fun trying to explain to various how I found out about the job...

"well, there's this guy I know, and he knows a guy, who passed my CV onto another guy..."

I'd take the M1 to the B3 to the G51... Bingo!!! Oh, wait, what were we talking about?

Luck and all that to you!

Rock on. Networks really are the best way to get new work through the door.

Give it all you've got.
