I feel it has been ages since making a post and for that I apologize. I have since attended a couple interviews, but have yet to write anything for them. My dedication has been hindered by a much enjoyed holiday spent with the relatives, as well as continued celebrations over the New Year with some friends in London. Needless to say, all I got for Christmas was one extended hangover.
Alas however, I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you who has come along and visited my blog, taking from it whatever joys it has been able to provide. Earlier today it received its 10,000th visitor. An amount I really never thought possible, but a true demonstration in the power of spamming your hyperlink across the web. I joke!
As for the job front, I had a two-day assessment centre with AstraZeneca last month for a CIMA-based position within their Finance department. A really great experience, but for reasons that will soon be explained to me in a feedback phone-call, I was unsuccessful. I think I will continue focusing on accountancy-based schemes for the time being. It seems to me like the most logical route to take after having sat down and really thought out what it is I can best contribute to a firm. A contact of mine in London has kindly introduced me to an associate of his involved in forensic accounting, so I will be meeting with them later on in the week in an effort to extract what wisdom I can.
Thank you all very much for your support and do please continue to comment with your stories of success and/or missteps.
