Oh, happy day
So, after months of silence from American Apparel who found my general appearance and blog demeaner unbegetting of a stock room assistant, a rejection from a marketing writing assistant post within the uni which softened the blow with the words 'we'll keep you on file' and most, surprisingly of all, no response whatsoever from employee-guzzling Primark, it would appear as though I have an interview! After a tip off from a friend-of-a-friend working at Topman, revealing a rumour was circulating that Topshop may just be recruiting, I flew into town to hand in my application. Naturally, much consideration was given to a sartorial choice that would present me with the perfect equilibrium between 'inherently stylish' and 'made no effort at all - simply handing in a CV'. I think the choice of a casual high bun with velvet bow combination must have worked as less than two hours later, I received a phone call from Personnel asking me when I'd be availible to work etc and despite my phone running out of battery mid-conversation, I have somehow managed to secure myself an interview on Thursday! This is easily one of the most exciting moments of my career so far. Wish me luck!
