    Default An interview - but it's hard work

    Well, I have an interview next week and they're only interviewing 2 people, so that's good. It's a 3 month part-time contract which works fine as I can run it alongside my current part-time contract, which ends next month.

    But... in the grand old days, you'd get a phone call from an agent, stick your CV over, spend 20 mins with the client who'd in effect say, welcome aboard OG, here's 150k for 18 months work. Now, I need to put in a 4 page briefing document before the interview on how I'd approach the contract, which is worth £12k.

    Ho hum, thus are the choppy seas of commerce. Need an exit strategy from healthcare.

    The older ones smell more, so they are cheaper.
    While you're waiting, read the free novel we sent you. It's a Spanish story about a guy named 'Manual.'

    I think he's trying to say that OG is past it.

    Good luck. If you come third though, you'll definitely know you're past it.

    What's the going rate on the bench though?
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    We've done polls on age before, and from the last one the average age of board members was 41.

    OG will probably be one of those who will come fourth in a two horse race
