Just quickly...

popping in and out today to tell you I saw that the company that I had an interview with a few weeks back is advertising for one of the stores I registered my interest in. I don't know whether this position is being re-advertised or if a new one has become available.

The big difference in the ad was that it stated that "Flexibility over a 7 day period is essential."

This is what has stopped me from re-applying as I am not that flexible, simply because I have a life and other people in it and would have to move heaven and earth to organise baby sitters etc to be available.

And it occurred to me...

1. It's kind of unfair to ask a person to be available full-time but only offer them part-time work

2. maybe because I wasn't available 7 days a week was why I missed out the first time (but in saying that I did state I was available 4 full days per week including weekends which I thought was quite reasonable)

In any case I feel a bit more justified about not applying again and a bit better about possibly knowing why they didn't pick me in the first place.... I have a big problem with beating myself up about having to know WHY you see LOL

so now I'm satisfied... for the time being

Onto topics unrelated...

Happy Easter everyone!!!

I'd be feeling redeemed too. And I agree with you that your available hours were perfectly fine.

Have you considered targeting the government for jobs? They're more family friendly.
