    Well, I just got a phone call confirming the date and time for a job interview - tomorrow afternoon! It's with a company connected to the railway industry, earning around £20,000 a year (approx 40,000 USD).

    I'm nervous as hell already! :(

    Well, time to update you all - it never happened :/

    On the 27th I travelled down to York (about 45 miles away), and I found the building... empty. Deserted. Nobody about. I waited around for 45 minute in the hope of a human being turning up but I didn't see a single soul.

    Feeling kinda peeved at my time being wasted I went home and wrote a fairly lengthy letter of complaint. Ten days later they responded and blamed me for not making my presence known at reception! One slight flaw in their argument - the building has no reception area! It was literally a room with some doors leading off it, all of which were marked 'private' and knocking on these doors yielded no response.

    Unbelievable... :(

    Well, since you won't get it now, regardless, send 'em an email that says 'Suck it dry. Trucks rule.'

    I had the number for the company's HR department, which is in a different place but would have been of some use - but nobody answered. :(
