I have recently acquired a job (starting properly on the 16th), doing tech support for BTopenworld broadband at £5.45 an hour. It’s not a career (I know a girl who did it for three years, and said it would fuck your mind if you did it any longer), but at least it’s technical in some manner. It’s a [fairly good] start. I had a quick phone interview (the recommended Dundee (fuck knows why), so him and his wife decided to up sticks and give it a go. He’s going to be doing tech support too. He also mentioned he’s into rock/a bit of metal, usual ‘team work’/’bad customer’ questions), then a group interview (there was just four people there). I was the only one who managed to type out some text in the allotted time, and I also scored highly on the technical test so I was offered the opportunity of doing tech support. Afterwards, I met one of the other guy’s from the interview outside and had a chat with him. Apparently he ‘s originally from England, but several online gaming friends of his so I helpfully pointed out the doghouse and mentioned bondage, which he seemed interested in.
Employees who do tech support have to be flexible to work sometime between 7am-11pm, and given the fact that there is no bus from Newport into Dundee before 7:20, I will have to move to Dundee. This is both good and scary.
And btw; I’m going down to Sheffield tomorrow to visit Daisy, returning Saturday.
