I have been given a call back by the Council for this position as an Administration Officer/ Office Wench position. The annoying thing is that there is a different position which I would be better at, but it only just was advertised. I have to go in for an Occupational Test on the computer to assess where I am at. I wonder just how honest to be. I am not really that happy with Customer Service which this other job wouldn't have much of, but the one I went for does. I desperately want to go overseas but am wanting to wait until summer stops before heading to the golden climes of Europe. This position would give me the opportunity to earn money and gain experience for such an adventure. I am also worried about the current crop of elligible young ladies roaming this fair city at the moment. The barren landscape in the easygoing mid 20s is in a state of rapid decline whilst maybe a fresh location would offer fresh opportunities and greener more nourished pastures. I guess I struck this problem in the interview yesterday when asked of long term goals which left me thinking, what are my future goals? A rich uncle needing someone to help dun his sports marketing/ writing business would be the biggest dream. The strangeness of the situation is that I have studied such a variety of subjects, but not really mastered any. My studies in human geography and marketing at University and Journalism at Polytech. My summer holiday jobs have also varied from working for the Invercargill City Council and at the University to cleaning hotel rooms. I also wasted last year as a Night Porter at a hotel and it still leaves me searching for an entry level position all this time, despite finishing studies in 2003.
Should I take this test and tell lies like that I will be at the Council in 30 years and that I love Customer Service? Avoid answering those questions? Or just lie?
