I am so very happy to report that I finally got a job!! Three cheers!!
It all happened so quickly. I handed my CV in on Tuesday morning, got offered an interview Tuesday evening, went for the interview Wednesday morning and got the job Thursday lunchtime. I start work this Tuesday coming and I can't tell you how excited I am!
I bet you're all wondering where it is I'm now working. I am now officially an employee at Cath Kidston Winchester :)
I'm not sure how well known Cath Kidston is over the pond, but here in the UK, it's not just a brand, it's a lifestyle choice. It's a chain of designer shops selling gorgeous handbags, clothing, home goods and fabrics, all in a floral, English country style. They also sell a huge range of sewing accessories; sewing boxes, knitting needles, ribbon, buttons, books etc. It is my dream job because it is just so me.
See, isn't it the most gorgeous shop ever?!
I am so very lucky to get a job there. It's only a temporary position for over the summer at the moment, but the interviewer said they were looking to sign a couple of people on permanently. I plan to show them just how hard working I am to secure one of those jobs.
There's quite a strict dress code at work. Lots of floral (naturally), no black, only dark denim jeans, sensible shoes and always looking smart with hair and nails and such. If I do get hired permanently (fingers crossed!) I get a fixed allowance to buy Cath Kidston clothes. Genuine Cath Kidston clothes - oh be still my beating heart!
I bet you can tell how excited I am purely by the amount of exclamation marks I've used in this post :) I am so very pleased. Also, houses are being allocated soon so I will soon have a job, a house and the most perfect summer ahead of me ever :)
