1 Surprised But Proud Dad

    Last week, daughter did her last exam and finished 5 years at Bournemouth University.

    On Friday we went down and collected her as her contact for her flat was now finished (can't believe how much crap she has accumulated over that 5 years despite much of it also going in the skip :nusenuse:)

    She will get her final results in August or September and officially graduate in November.

    Anyway, we told her that now she was home and there were no more grants from either Uni or the bank of Mum and Dad she would either need to sign on the dole or find a job, even if that meant stacking shelves for a few months.

    Something obviously sunk in. She applied for a job online on Sunday evening, on Monday she had a text asking if they could speak to her further, today at 2pm she goes for her first ever job interview, at 4pm she gets a phone call offering her a job. (y)

    Of course she accepted straight away.

    So from the 25th of this month she will be a Chemical annalyst working for a big Utility firm.

    I think that less than 1 week between finishing University and starting work is pretty good going for a novice in the work place and who has not yet got her grades.

    Apparently she impressed her new boss in that she was able to prove that she knew what she was talking about.

    As I said, 1 proud and chuffed dad
