Some of you may remember that I wrote a rather cryptic post on the 31st March about something that I had done but wasn't telling anybody what it was.
Well...it was for a job. I wasn't particularly looking for a new job, but when I saw the advert for Librarian at Somerville College in Oxford, I thought "oooh, I fancy having a go at that". I agonised over the application form for ages, selecting the right words that I hoped would get me an interview.
Unfortunately, such possibilities are not to be as I heard today that I had not been selected for an interview, which is disappointing, but sometimes that happens. Particularly when applying to colleges that are prestigious and expect a high calibre of applicants and I am quite sure that they had a very good response to the advert.
All I say right now is "oh poo". Naturally I am disappointed but the reality is that I have a good job and I don't need to work somewhere else, I just thought that it would make a change and perhaps take my career in a different direction. Still, you never know what's round the corner do you, so perhaps I will find something else or make more of the job that I currently have.
