Awright, Pitfags!

I am sat in an internet café just minutes away from going to my job interview in Hoxton, and then I'm off to play a HEADLINE gig at the Purple Turtle in Camden- I am officially bricking it.

So I'm suited and booted and I've practiced my best 'I'm not nervous' face- now it's judgement day. Any advice before I enter the big, scary glass building?

Big slow breaths to calm yourself. Think positive, you WILL get that job!

Delirium, I was wishing for a reply from you! I'm definately going to use the bass on my back as a selling point. I am a member of a band- confident, dedicated, reliable, and I am a bass player- a team player, cool under pressure (when put on the spot), and I work well with others.

Hoorah!

Drink a few beers before you go in, will calm you down. But take a breathmint or something so you don't smell alcohol.


Worked for me once.
People are bastards. Bastardcoated bastards with bastardfilling.

Look up the brand values before the interview and then drop them into your answers.

I have to go to a job interview soon; for my own freaking job. I'll be doing that, but probably more angrily.

I had that at Wilkinsons. Annoying thing was, they had decided who they were taking on before the interviews.

Yeah, it's fairer than hiring external staff though I guess.
Although external staff don't know what it's like and might actually want to work there.

Neither, I was a virgin media part-timer in a zavvi concession, then when that closed I had to move into the Virgin Media stand-alone store.... they have a vacancy for a part timer there, but me and the other 2 part timers have to interview for it. Even though I don't think any of us want to work in that shop =/

Don't do what I did. When I had a job interview at HMV they asked me 'what do you think about iPods' and I said ' I hate them, overpriced for what they do'


I didn't get the job

Well Suzie... even though you don't like it, and you probably know this anyway, a job's a job. I held down a job at Wilko's which was sh*t until I got my job fixing watches, which is much more fun. How else will you be able to afford more tattoos, anyways?

Yeah. I have an iPod ripoff, called a Phillips GoGear. It works better than iPods and is significantly cheaper.

lol... 12 hours a week sitting on a bench, charging £44.95 to flip off the watch back and replace a battery isn't exactly all fun and games either, but it's a damn sight better than stocking shelves or serving customers

It's not rubbish when one of your housemates works there and lets you take advntage of her 30% discount.

30%?! I only got 20.
Back in the day that is. They stopped OUR discounts along with stopping accepting student cards D=

Sorry but going to a job interview and acting all "appropriate" and conformist before a HEADLINE gig is just lame and uncool. It is a distraction and shows a lack of commitment to the band.

I don't really have anything else to say...

Mine is 8gb but that's all I need. Those iPods that are stupidly big, I find them silly really.

Well, no opportunities have come so far.

8Gb is still not enough for me....

I hope there exists a music player that is around the double-digits storage spaiiizee....that's not an Ipod. I hoped that the Phillips one would be that. Turns out I was wrong.

I'm sorry I got your hopes up
Although, I don't know if they do any other sizes. It's worth checking out though, they're pretty good.

I totally had one of those for a few years.

It finally died when I left it in the rain...for the 4th or 5th time, I don't remember.


Awesome little machine haha


as for the topic
Look nice.
Always dress one step up from what you'll be wearing at work.

Ex:
Fast food, you'll be wearing a work uniform probably of slack like jeans and one of their shirts.
So you wear Slacks and a collared shirt, or a polo style shirt.

Retail, you wear slacks and a dress collared shirt
Wear slacks or kackies, dress shoes, a collared shirt and tie, maybe a vest.

Office, you dress nicely. Dress pants or slacks, collared shirt and tie, dress shoes.
So wear all that and throw a suit jacket on top of it.


Other than that, just be honest, and stay calm.
That's the biggest thing people mess up with.
They panic and give dumb answeres
