I kept telling myself it had to happen eventually... someone had to give in and hire me.
I was actually applying for another job ("we regret to inform you...") when the recruitment consultant handling my application sudddenly took a liking to me and asked if I would be interested in applying for a recruitment position at her company.
Next thing I know, I'm meeting the bosses and being introduced to the expat recruitment team. Cool - but nobody seems too phased about the fact that I actually, technically, have no recruitment experience.
I'm a little bit nervous about this fact. I don't have a salesman pitch. I can't bullshit. If I don't like you, it's going to show on my face. If I think you're bullshitting me, it's going to show in my comments. No matter, I'm getting a 6 month contract so I guess I should know by November whether or not I'm cut out for recruitment...
I get to take two people who I think will be compatible, then I tell them where to be and what to wear and what to say... what? That's not recruitment? That's match-making, you say?
All I know is that as of June, I will be earning a salary. And not a minute too soon - I have holidays to plan, shoes to buy, restaurants to visit... oh, and Mills is probably going to expect a bit of financial input too.
