I'm feeling really positive about it, and I think I have a great chance of getting it. The wonderful Jennyapples may have saved me from a shitty, zero-hour contract job that hasn't paid me in weeks and helped me get a job which perfectly suits my interests, ethics and career goals. From feeling like a complete failure and begging this morning, I now feel great and I'm feeling really hopeful for the future. Amazing what one act of kindness can do!
I'll find out if I have the job on Wednesday/Thursday, but honestly I'm feeling cautiously confident about it. The pair interviewing me had lots of smiles and nods and I made the guy laugh a few times and they asked me when I'd be available.
