Peter then told me that Roger was going to give me an interview on Friday 29th August at 12 noon and with that I said thank you to both men and I left I couldn’t wait to get home to tell my mum what had just happened.
OMG today is Friday and I have my very first job interview I printed off my CV to take with me I arrived at the BIG MOTORING WORLD Group showroom 15 minutes early. I was very nervous. Roger came to meet me and led me into his office. Roger then said don’t bulls**t me, tell me the truth with your answers to all my questions and with that I nervously handed over my CV for Roger to read.
I was shaking bad where I was so nervous. Roger kept telling me to calm down and breathe, he then asked me have I any disabilities to which I replied I have Irlens which basically means I struggle to read black print on white paper and I also suffer with Dyscalculia which is where I struggle to remember lots of numbers at once unless I can write them down. Roger then replied "thank you for your honesty". The rest of the interview was a blur, all I can remember is being told by Roger that I have the job and I was to start work on Monday 1st September at 8.30am. I sat there in total shock and still shaking Roger asked for my mums phone number so he could phone my mum to tell her that I had been given the job and what hours I would be working and other details.
So here I am working in an office with Roger as an Administrator for Big Motoring World Group. I have made several friends while being here I enjoy working with them all.
I have always been told that you make your own luck through life and it’s not what you know but that you know and nothing is handed to you on a plate. Well whatever way you look at it whether you’re a pessimist or an optimist, that Wednesday was lucky for me and I was definitely in the right place at the right time. I was lucky that Peter and Roger believed in me.
