Job Trial Tomorrow

Hi guys,

Well, I applied for a job early last week, or maybe the week before, and I still haven't heard back. I spent 5 days on a glorious adventure, had the time of my life, saw some awesome scenery and yet haven't heard back :( I tried to ring them to find out if I have the job yet, but no-one has returned my call, so im guessing its a no :(

Anyway, so a couple of days ago I was flipping through a horse mag and came across another job. I rang to find out if the job was still available (it was an old ad) and was told to send my resume. So I did, got a call back saying that we don't have that job going at the moment but have a stable hand position that is a good place to start out and after evaluation, they'll let me know if they want me for the other job. So tomorrow morning, at 5.15am i'm off to my job trial.

I'm getting everything organised (clean clothes etc) and thought i'd take a break and check my emails, only to find two places that I contacted via email previously asking to see my resume. So what do I do? I sent back an email saying that yes, here is my resume, and that I have a job trial beginning tomorrow, but will contact you with regards as to whether I am still available.

So guys,

Wish me luck for tomorrow, I think im going to need it lol

Well, lets just say that I got the job but will not be working there.

I have 3 people ringing me tomorrow regarding jobs, one is mustering, one is as a polo groom, the last is sole charge of a warmblood stud. According to the recruitment lady i've got a 75% chance with the mustering, 50% on the polo (never had much to do with polo) and about $150% with the warmblood stud.

Don't really care which one I get, but I would oh so love the warmblood job, sounds perfect for me.

Anyway, another day in the diary of my job hunting, will let you know how I go this time!

Thanks Pinto Pony,

I'm checking the job sites a couple of times a day at the moment. Some of the work I have enquired about is contract work, the other stuff is full time. I can't really afford to take casual rates unfortunately as I have to relocate for each job. At the moment im doing FIFO for work as I don't want to move my kids until I have job security.

Anyway, will give you an update as soon as I hear back!

Well, the job hunt continues.

So far i'm hitting a dead end with the jobs, i've applied for heaps but most of the time there is no accomodation :(

Still waiting to hear back about a mustering job, so will post when I know more.

Keep your fingers crossed guys. At this stage im about to put plan B into action............you know, buy a 12HH pony and try out for the olympics!! Lol

Do you have any dairies around? They are almost always looking for people to milk the cows, full or part time. No experience required.

Hi Guys,

Well, I got a job !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I now work at a Cutting Horse Establishment and having a blast. Its hard work and long hours, but I am learning sooooooooooo much! The person that I work for is fantastic, and always happy to explain what she's doing and why with a particular horse, and so far has tolerated all of my questions (there have been HEAPS of those).

Anyway, sorry its taken me so long to get back to you guys, but we had to go away for a comp and we're off again in a couple of days for another week.

Talk when I can!

I'm Baaaack!

What am I doing?

A groom etc for a cutting place. Learning heaps and having a wow of a time (if you don't read my 'i got kicked' post that is.

Meeting some wonderful people, even a celebrity or two.

Basically, im responsible for caring for the horses at the event, prepping them for comp and looking after them after the comp.

At home, I do general stable duties (a little riding) and it seems to be basic farm maintenance.

Will fill you in more when im not so tired and sore :)
