All you Perth people should know the Canning Vale Markets... basically I will be doing the accounts and general office stuff for one of the vege wholesalers. I will be doing about 25 hours a week.

It was a fluke I found out about the job really. I went to meet Billy for lunch on Tuesday and he said that he might be finishing early so if I was in the area could I pick him up (he rides his bike and it was raining.) So because he works just near the markets I thought I'd go down there and look around for a bit so I was close in case he finished.

Anyway, I went into the big bulk lolly shop (yes I know! Naughty girl I am). And in their window was an add for a Part Time office person. So I asked them about it and they gave me a number to call and told me it was for one of the wholesalers.

So I raced home and called them and talked to the girl who seemed really interested in me and she asked when I would come in. I said Thursday as it was already 1pm pn Tuesday and today of course was a holiday. So we made a time and all was cool.

Then Billy got home and the phone rang and it was her asking if I could some in right away for an interview. So I said give me an hour. I got Billy to help me straighten my hair and off I went!!

I got there and talked to the girl who was absolutely wrapped! She apparently had had a few real losers apply!!!!

I told her my skills and experience and she was so happy!! So she asked me to come in on Friday!

Funny thing is I forgot to ask about the pay!! But where I was before the pay was kind of average so anything is good!

If it turns out to be really really low pay then I know I can find something else pretty quick, there is alot of jobs out there!!

CONGRATULATIONS Nikki! Well done. As I always say - when one door closes, another opens up. I usually go the Canning vale Markets about twice a month.
2008 - my year to be great!!
