Wish me luck, alright?

Break a leg. I hope it goes well.

This is the WoM, after all. "Day after tomorrow" means "in the relatively near-ish future, probably" in WoM slang.

Strop runs on doctor time. I am still waiting for it to be "tomorrow"... The day after tomorrow will be a relative amount of time after the moment I have gotten the reply to my question (which doesn't matter anymore, but out of principle).

It doesn't really matter. This is the WoM, after all. "Day after tomorrow" means "in the relatively near-ish future, probably" in WoM slang.


The best part is that this never means the same thing twice!

In this case, this is what I have been doing:

a) Cirriculum Vitae
b) Cover Letter
c) Online application process
d) Attend hospital open day

Now multiply that by five, because I'm applying to five hospitals in this state. I should have most of it under control by the middle of next week, but before I have my interview times booked (in the case that the hospitals offer me the interview), I can't really rest.

I presume most readers here haven't experienced the joy of applying for a career-oriented job... when/if you do, you'll understand -_-; Once I've finished writing the CV and the majority of the cover letters I'll post your next task.

Good luck with your exam Xzeno!

Good luck with your exams Kingryan! (Anybody else I missed?)

Currently I have finished my CV, but need to rewrite the personal statement depending on what I put in each of my cover letters. Also, I have finally attended all the hospital open days available, so now it's just down to the task of getting everything submitted. It is taking a long time, but seriously I'll get around to... haha man I suck :<

Yeah. Fortunately for me, I am guaranteed a job starting January not only in Victoria, but NSW as well, so as far as that goes I'm sitting prettier than most people. However, it's a matter of where I get that job.

Do yourself a favour and come to South Australia?

Value 1: Making money.
Value 2: Making everything clean.
Value 3: Picking on new doctors?

An announcement!

I've just finished my applications to my number one preference. Luckily, I managed to snag the last available interview slot post-exams, which is crucial to my internship 2011 campaign.

Once I finish the other applications later tonight, I can think about updating the WoM. Your wait is not in vain!

Final announcement before the next round!

I'm done with applications. I have a long weekend, so I will force myself to squeeze in some time to get the next round started! It will be out within 24 hours, so PREPARE YOURSELVES!!!

A lot of the intermediate material is disorganised thanks to my being unable to keep up correspondences during the application-week-from-hell, so I'll have to pick up those loose ends tonight i.e. now.
