    A London meet up would be awesome. Think it would also help to calm everyone's nerves before and after!!

    I'm so glad I found this site to pass the waiting time...I am on here all day at work! LOL!
    Well those who do get interviews will have to make some plans to meet up, it would do everyone the world of good!
    Where would everyone be travelling down / up from?
    I'm in a small freaky little town called Ipswich. Home of Murderers, Nightclub shootings, Lots of underage girls pushing buggies and of course, a rubbish football team.

    I'm from Northampton, hometown of the new doctor who! About 1hr on the train from Euston, so not to far!

    Lol, I'm not actually from ipswich I am just living here for now! I was born in colchester, Britain's oldest recorded town... ??? :-\
    However I did talk about Ipswich. Did you know that Ralph Fiennes, who was in Maid in Manhatten with J.Lo, and plays Lord Voldemort in Harry Potter was born here!
    Also, the world's first lawnmower was manufactured right here in Ipswich in 1902.
    That earned me a few laughs I can tell you!
    It only takes about an hour to get to London from here so hopefully, should i be invited to interview, I won't have a long trek to make it there.

    Oh.my.god, so say I just had the biggest heartattack ever is a understatement. Just went into my email and saw the word Disney, then realised it was a mailing about Disney Cruises and got disappointed!!

    Oh no! I keep checking my email, seeing I have new messages and getting really excited only to find out that they are stupid chain mail messages from my Mum!
    Grr...I will never make it through the weekend at this rate! lol

    P.S Just looked back at my emails from the last time I applied, this should give us an idea of timescales.
    I had my telephone interview on 17th August, I finally got my interview invite on 10th September for Interviews being held 1st October. Looks like we'll be waiting a while yet!

    To share a random piece of info about my home town... My Auntie lives next door to the Grandson of the man who wrote Thomas the Tank Engine! See....I'm FAMOUS! ;D

    It'll be well cool if we could all meet up in London for the interviews, and do some good ol' sightseeing! London has to be my favourite city in the world! Me and my Mum always go for short city breaks there, it's such an amazing place!!

    With regards to the Phone Interview, I did not mention any of this in my interview! All I could come up with was that Peterborough has a Passport Office and a Cathedral. epic fail. fact.

    My answer to the how would you represent your home town:

    "erm well i'm originally from Liverpool so...the Beatles, yeah music"

    That was a bit of a fail haha

    I had lots of interesting things to say about my hometown but didn't get asked that question...

    I have just been offered a job which is perfect for me and something I've been searching for for the past ten months. If I get a face to face interview I'm definitely still going to go, as it's always nice to have another option. The crp would not start til sept-dec; I may feel ready to leave the job as it's not going to be forever anyway (I will be leaving it eventually anyway to do a Masters).

    I guess I had the advantage of having a phone interview last time so i sort of already knew what to expect, although that doesn't necessarily mean I'm going to get offered a F2F this time :-[
    I had a dream about it last night. I think I ate one too many poptarts before bed....lol
