Re: Long waiting times to hear result of interview

(In between that time I actually got offered another unrelated job) but about 3 weeks after the interview I rang HR and found out they had actually put a hold on sending outcome letters out - not 100% sure of the reason but the lett...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1. Annoyed at myself for ranting so much at times :oops: like wanting to be somewhere, have something or wanting something to happen right now instead of being more patient and persistent - things test you at times but trying to learn to get away from this 2. Last night went to an event nothing rela...

Re: Educational Psychology

RossPsych Thanks so much for your reply and insights/advice :) Very helpful as I don't know much about it.
