I didn’t get the job

But don’t feel bad on my behalf… you see they are changing the management structure to include a third role which is kind of a 2IC role to my boss.  Details yet to be worked out… and there’s a three month trial to see if it works… and I’ll be acting and probably have to apply for it if they decide to go ahead.  At least I have my CV prepared!

It sounds pretty interesting – I get to do pilots and program development and I get to be on-air more.  If I could do it 4 days a week- that would be heaven! Oh and I do the online editor thang which is my ballywick anyway.  So it’s a win-win and the person doing my old job will be great.

Anyway I’m flying to Melbourne next week for talks on how the new role will work so any tips on great places/shops to get a bit of shopping in… I should have some time on Thursday afternoon… 🙂

  1. Where will you be, and what sort of shopping do you like ?

    I’m thinking you’ll be Southbank, ya ?
    Not sure about the shopping over there, but there’s lots of nice eateries. Surely someone will be assigned to take you to lunch though ?

    P’raps mosy on down to Chapel St ?

  2. See… this is EXACTLY why I made up an award for you!

    btw – I’m loving following the award as it spreads out – I’ve found some fabulous bloggers. 🙂

    I think it will really take off. It would be interesting to see it spread out virally – almost like a tree growing from a seed and branching out. I reckon it would be cool to map it from “ground zero”. You’d have the advantage of seeing the incoming links.

  4. I was just talking to Groover about that. I’m going to make a page which links to all the people I can find who have been awarded it. So we’ll end up with a great list of people other people think are great.

  5. Snap! I didn’t get my job too.

    They gave it to an overqualified baby boomer who has given up jetsetting all over the world and wants something to keep herself busy between now and when she retires.

    Not that I’m bitter… I kind of had my heart set on leaving anyway; just have to find the right thing when it comes along…
