Telephone Interview, Birds and Birdmen

As I write this England are struggling horribly in the third test match against South Africa, which they need to win to retain their world no 1 ranking. Kevin Pietersen was omitted because he sent derogatory text messages about Andrew Strauss to various members of the South African squad. Quite rightly this was considered unacceptable, so England have two youngsters (James Taylor and Jonathan Bairstow) on the middle order.

The big event for me this week was a telephone interview for a job as Order Administrator for Virgin Media, based in Peterborough. If you are thinking that a telephone interview would be tough for an aspi you are absolutely right, but having located a document that explained how to handle an interview of this nature (competency based) I was able to succeed. The approach is known by the acronym STAR, which stands for Situation/Task; Action; Result. more details on this technique can be found at http://www.interview-skills.co.uk/competency-based-interviews-STAR.aspx

I now wait to find out exactly when I will need to go to Peterborough for the next stage (it will be some time on Thursday, with a view if all is still well to a start on Tuesday 28 August (last Monday in August is always a bank holiday).

As always I have some photos for you…
