Yesterday was my day at the board, and I wasn’t recommended for the two jobs I was after. I am able to return to the board 12 months and apply for those jobs again if I wish. After I was told by the board president that they weren’t recommending me, mainly due to lack of experience, I had a chat with a recruiter as to some other jobs that I might be suitable for and have come home with a few jobs to have a look at both general and officer entry.
The board was a great experience and I was a lot more collected in my emotions and knowledge than I was on my assessment day which I was proud of. Other than myself there was three men attending the board on the same day I was and it was great to chat to them about what they have done in their lives so far (I was the youngest by three years).
I am taking a few days to step back and really think about what it is I want to do with my life and how I best go about achieving those goals. Also taking some time to recharge myself after the last week where I had been running at 120% in preparing for the board. Last night I was in bed by 8 and woke up at 7 this morning, I was so buggered. The world goes on though and it is not the end of the world that I didn’t get the recommend, I am happy that I made it as far as the board in the first place.

You should know that I’m pretty proud of how far you got with interviews. That’s quite an achievement in itself. And to look on the bright side, it just means I don’t have to think about not having a driving partner for now anyway. Good luck with whatever comes your way!
Sorry you didn’t get the job Helen, but congratulations on getting that far.
Helen, I am sorry that the outcome was not as you wished, but I believe that you will find a path and that it will end up being exactly what you want.
Congratulations on achieving the sucess that you did; you know that you are still just a little whiper snapper in the grand scheme of things (do I sound old and wise LOL)
