    After being a bum for near on 6 glorious weeks finally got a new job sorted and i start next monday :D

    Had the first interview last thursday, then the second interview Tuesday and then they couldnt decide and wanted me to go in today to see how i got on with the rest of the team so was there 3 hours and just got off the phone about 30mins ago.
    About 2k more than i used to get aswell which is nice.

    Its for one of the UK's biggest Solvency companies in the accounts dept for Begbies Traynor so a fantastic company to start down low at :D

    Now wheres the beer

    Well since its through an agency they asked what the minimum i was willing to accept was and since similar jobs were around 10k is since its fairly low level work and i'd be on day release to do my AAT i said around that and they've offered me 12k.
    Not great by most peoples standards but i'm pretty pleased.

    Xplo basically the company have taken over a investigation company and are looking to get another soon so i'll be helping to look after the accounts for the investigation side :)
