Blog post: Playing with Bootstrap

Posted on

It’s been a while since I posted, and I feel bad about that as I’d been doing really well to blog once a month. Unfortunately my new job meant I was so exhausted all the time! I’d get up at 6am every day then catch two buses to work (one of which was usually late […]

This past month has been quite exciting. I’ve had so many awesome opportunities and taken part in some fun events. I’ll start off with the good news. Volunteer Work On a whim I put my name forward to be a newshound at TrueSteamAchievements (TSA) and I was successful. Now I get to patrol steam press […]

Blog post: Life Update

Posted on

So, although I had planned on starting C# again this year, I may have gotten a little distracted with video games. Four came out all at the same time and I’ve been playing them all the hours that I have free. I started with the latest Metal Gear Solid. I’d got pretty far in with […]

Blog post: Demotivated

Posted on

So the interview date for the website coordinator job I applied for has been and gone. I didn’t hear back from them so I’ve obviously not been considered. This has me pretty demotivated right now and even though there’s a similar position available at the same place, I’m questioning whether to send an application. I […]

Blog post: Update 13/10/2015

Just a quick note to say I didn’t get the job. Tom suggested I ask for feedback and even though I didn’t hold out much hope, I asked for some. It turns out the other applicants just had more experience, which makes me feel better. The rest of this week has been spent working out […]

Another rejection on the job front today. I wasn’t even considered for an interview. It was only a temporary role editing a book for the UEA, but it would have been nice to have for my CV. Oh well, another job came up this afternoon so I’ve applied for that. Let’s hope I have more […]

Blog post: Ups and Downs

Posted on

So I’m sat in Waterstones with a huge coffee and a slice of cake consoling myself after the scariest interview I’ve had so far. The job sounded good when it was described to me, but when I got there it turns out they were looking for someone with a completely different skill set. That part […]

Blog post: Another Rejection

Posted on

So I’ve just heard back about the interview I went to on Thursday and I didn’t get the role. It was another job that I knew I could do but in the end, they wanted someone with more experience. I’m not sure if that’s the actual reason, or if I just didn’t get across that […]

Blog post: The Big Move

Posted on

Well, the time has come. It’s the end of an era – today was my last day at Jagex! I’ve been there so long it’s going to be very strange not being in the games industry. Tomorrow I move to Norwich and there are no studios there as far as I know. I’m both excited […]

Blog post: First Interview of the year

Posted on

So, today was my first job interview this year. The only interviews I’ve had have been at Jagex and one other company. So given that I’d only experienced two kinds of interview, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I certainly wasn’t expecting to have an interview in a cafe. The SessionCam office apparently only had […]
