If we're not Christian and it's not Spring, why do we get holidays at Easter?
On Saturday I wrote an application for a job with "Good organisational and communication." as a selection criterion.
Tomorrow I will lodge my nomination to be a system tester for the June release (thank you, Simon). This is a really good thing for an office to send staff to because essentially the attendees are given intensive training in the system changes and return to the office as experts. I was not released to go to the June 2001 testing because I had to do training for the June release. (Yes, that is a stupid as it sounds.) My nomination for the September 2001 release was given to my manager, Kathy, to fax on the closing date because I only received the information (thank you, Simon) the day before. I heard nothing more about it. I was on vacation in December 2001. I was not released to go to the March 2002 testing because that was expected to be a slow period so management were encouraging people to take leave at that time and we would be short staffed. Also my previous manager, Kathy, told my manager I had been a system tester for the last release. Perhaps my fourth application will be successful.
