I have a job!

And not the one mentioned in my last post either :)

It's part time in a wool shop in our local town, alternate Wednesdays & Saturdays to begin with. I'm pleased and kind of surprised to have got the job, since I've only knitted about four things in total, and was upfront about being a total novice, but the owner seemed wildly enthusiastic at the prospect of someone who wasn't intimidated by the till or the prospect of entering stock onto the computer (her other current staff member sounds like a bit of a technophobe)!

Doesn't pay a huge amount, but a small income is better than nothing, and I'll be delighted at being able to contribute something to the household budget again :D

It's all happened ridiculously quickly - the owner tweeted about the job just before noon on Tuesday, I messaged her on Facebook right then, got an interview that afternoon, sent her my CV yesterday and heard I had the job today :)

*does happy dance*

Well done you! Computer skills will take you far, it's the future, I tell you!

*twirls you*

I knew all that computery stuff would come in useful one day!

I think the bit that clinched it was me pointing out that if I picked up more of the technical stuff like stock control it would free her up to do more of the creative stuff like designing patterns *g*

I was quite pleased and surprised to get it, as I was first to reply, and when I met the owner she said she'd subsequently been swamped with queries. I was sure she'd go for someone who had more experience with knitting/crochet! Turns out she's decided to take on two of us (both called Alison, which will be nicely confusing) - the other one has mad knitting/crochet skillz, I'll be more logistics and technical support *g*

It was lovely to have someone so excited at what I had to offer :) It'll be good to be able to use my technical skills and also have a chance to pick up new, creative knowledge.
We'll see how I get on, but I'm looking forward to it :)

Whooo hoooooo! She sounds like a lovely employer and you've still got time for your own craft work, so that's great

She seemed very nice, and came across as delighted at the prospect of employing me, which was a lovely surprise :)

Yay for new job! :D You could be Computer Alison and the other Alison could be Crafty Alison (not that you're not crafty, in either sense of the word, but it would be more fun than being referred to by your surnames...)
