WOW! Got a new job already!!!!
CAn't believe it, I've only had three weeks off work, and only officially made redundant last Thursday. But I had a second interview yesterday (which lasted 6 hours) they were a bit cheeky I have to say, getting me to finish 3 jobs, including sending them to print. So they got 6 hours work for free. But I've got a week's trial starting Monday and all being well, I'll be employed as a full time designer! They use software that's new to me (InDesign) but I picked it up pretty well yesterday. I just can't believe it, this was the first job interview and I got it!!

If this works out, then I'm better off for being redundant, not only getting free courses off the govt, but having a little redundancy left over. Mind you, house repairs will suck that all away.

Time to celebrate now!

congrats. it seems odd that they'd work you for six hours and then give you a trial week. is it a small company?

i just started using indesign last fall, but i love it. it seems like a cross between pagemaker, which i've used religiously for about twelve years, and quark, which i used when i laid out pages for a newspaper about ten years ago.

if i could find a design job that's comparable in salary to my teaching job, i'd probably switch. at least i wouldn't have to take my work home every day. or would i?

Congrats :D

I've heard good things about InDesign. I never got to use it, though, because I graduated from high school before the graphic arts department switched from Quark.
