Well it's that time again. Time to go job hunting. Don't get me wrong I'm okay with my current job as an auditor.. but realistically it's not going anywhere. No gates are going to open because I had this role. There's very little chance that they'll even offer me another temp job after this one as well (especially with all the upheval going around and not to mention politics). I found one particular job that I liked though. It was as a data verification officer (which is similar to a previous job I've had and enjoyed before the stress levels got too high). It sounded good so I applied for it.
The next day they called back.. saying they wanted to met with me.. which I agreed to.. No problems right? Well.. turns out the place I applied for is looking for 5 full time officers and 3 part time ones. In order to get the best deal possible they told 4 recruitment agencies about the job and the agencies in turn advertised the positions. They told each agency that there were 5 full-time positions and 3 part-time positions. That means there is a minimum of 32 applicants 20 of which I have to worry about. 20 applicants going for 5 places and that's as a minumim. My agency that I'm going through is sending 7 resumes, I'm guessing that if I go by that 7 as an average there are still two agencies that list the advertisment for that position so if I up those to 10 applicants from those.. I'm going up against about 24 people for 1 of 5 positions. *growls* Bloody bastards!!
I guess I should be grateful that they're wanting people to start right away. As a result the ads are only up for 2 days with some agencies. *sighs* I hope I get this job. It may only be for about 2 months but it's high profile job and it's stuff I know. It will look good on my resume if I can say I worked there.
Oh and the girl at the agency said she'd highlight part of my resume because I'd worked in another government agency in such a similar job and though with a lesser level of depth I had worked in enough government agencies for her to be quite pleased with me.
Well.. wish me luck with this one!
