I’ve got a job! And not just any job, but a job with Merrill Lynch! I went for an interview this morning, and very unexpectedly, I received a call on the train back home with an offer!
I couldn’t fucking believe it! To be honest, I thought the interview went quite well, but I didn’t expect them to be this estatic about me and call me straight away, as they originally said they would inform me on Monday through HR. They also increased their original offer by a significant amount to tempt me to join. Fantastic!
I also use the term “job” fairly loosely, as I’m not a full employee, but rather on a one year internship. I start next year in July, taking a year off my studies at Nottingham University. It’s paid, which is good, but I have to travel nearly two hours a day, four hours in total, which is bad. Nevertheless, I think it’s worth it, ML seems like a really good company, and the people working there are very friendly and approachable.
I can’t wait to work at ML, finally, a real job!
