I am interested in how you got your job? Was by word of mouth, finding the job in the paper, doing a spec letter or did someone get the job for you?

I got mine through the Internet.. took me a whole month of Interviews, Assessments, study of New Zealand Law and hair pulling, Face twisting emotions to get it but it was all worth it..

My first ever job I got by writing to the bank and asking if they had jobs ... But most of my jobs were found by word of mouth ... and that seems to be something that happens more often with night shift workers (as I was for most of my working life) .. someone finds a good job and then we all flocked to it ... heheehh

I got my job on the internet. I was job hunting and had signed up for an employement service. The job looked like something that I was interested in and I applied for it 5 times, eventually getting an e-mail from the company asking me to stop because the job had been filled. Funny thing was, a week later I got a phone call from them asking me to come in and interview. Guess my persistence paid off!
