Isn't it strange? After saying I may not post too often, a few hours later I'm posting again!!

Anyway cross your fingers for me. I'm sending off two more job applications tomorrow.

One is for a job that sounds interesting and pays a tiny bit more than what I'm currently paid. This job is in Townsville which is only (?) 110kms away, so not far to move if I'm lucky enough to get it.

The other job sounds awesome and I could do it standing on my head and the pay is about $30K more than I'm getting now. This one is in Brisbane 1498 kms away and everyone will apply for it. I'll need lots of luck to even get an interview.

There is another job coming up eventually. The original rumour was July, then August and now it's November and it's still not advertised. I'm considering ringing and asking if I can submit an Expression of Interest since this is the job I really want. What do you think flisters - is that a sensible idea?

But right now I don't care which one I get. I just want to move away and live somewhere that has more people, is by the sea and is closer to some of my family.

I hope you get the one is Brisbane! Those ones that you know everyone wants are tough, but I think it also helps push you to do better with your application. Is it an application, or just a resume to start?

I'm trying for new jobs at the moment so I can move out; I'm an APS2 at the moment and looking for something as a 3 or a 4, which is a considerable pay rise, but I HATE doing applications. So much. The last one I put in was probably the worst thing I've ever written, I'll be lucky if I get past round one! >.<

(hey Wes and Gunn!)

It's an application and resume for both *wibbles*. But I've done a few this year and have had lots of practice!

If you need an editor for your applications ever PM me!

That's the spirit! You'll be fine :)

Thanks for the offer! I'll return the favour but justso you know, I would be less than useless. My eyes would just gloss over and I'd zone right out, lol.

Definitely call them - nothing wrong with expressing interest in a posting; you get your foot in the door earlier that way. Go for it!
