My photo
I am a girl/woman/human who has random thoughts. Sometimes you can find me here rambling, other times i might have useful stuff to say. For the most part, my friends and family can see what I might be up to in the days events. Or, for sake of sakes, its all made up... only i know.. and MAYBE a select few of you! Either way~ I am an American living in Australia. Oh, and any photo you see on this blog IS NOT FOR YOUR USE. If I have taken the photo myself or have permission to use it, YOU CAN NOT USE IT FOR YOURSELF. So be warned... and just dont use my damn photos.

One of those thangs

 

I was to have a written exam tonight for a possible job which I was shortlisted for.  I had my option of either last night or tonight, and due to other commitments, I decided tonight would be better.  So, I send off the email with the times I am available tonight for this exam. And wait.

I have just checked my emails and have received an email from the prospective company.  They have decided to change the position and have the person live in the capital city nearest me. Which is, about 2 hours away. Doesnt sound bad you say? Well, aside from not WANTING  to move, and all the expenses which can be incurred in a move, it just wasnt viable for me to consider I guess.

Damn it. Oh well. It was nice to know that I got shortlisted for the company anyway.

Ohh it's so exhausting applying for jobs, waiting, thinking, worrying... Good luck!

What does "shortlisted" mean? I don't blame you for not wanting to move. I hate driving 2 hours to see my Mom. Last Friday it took 3 hours because of construction and storms! Stay close to "home". Congrats anyway! It musta been just one of them thangs.

@ Jez:

Shortlisted means that when you put your resume in and then you get "shortlisted" in the process.. meaning you get selected to make it to the next round. Aussie slang I guess!
