Quick Question Thread

Recommended Posts

How long do you wait for a company to contact you after an interview, say it was last Wednesday and the guy said he would contact you in 'the next few days'.

The job is still being advertised on the website and they may well be checking my references as they invited me for an interview very quickly after I sent the application form.

And should I call the guy or would that just sound desperate?

I thought FTW meant f**k the Well.

What does it mean when people put FTW at the end of their posts?

It stands for For The Win, and basically means it's the best. So for example, P&B FTW = P&B rules. It's l33t speak, I think.

Generally speaking, because of the costs involved (postage, that is) in requesting references for everyone that applies, they only tend to request them for the person they've offered the job to. If it's over a week, I'd give them a call if I were you. Waiting to find out if you've got a job or not is so frustrating, it's only fair they give you the good/bad news just so it's over! Remember, if you don't get the job, you can always ask them why, and they ought to give you feedback so that you have some hints for your next interview.

Why don't penguins get cold feet? :)

How do you know they don't?

Tell me about it, I can't even bring myself to apply for anything else.

It was actually my first interview but I thought it went quite well.

I might give them a call on Monday if I haven't heard from them by then.

I'm in a similar boat just now waiting to find out if I'm getting into college or not. The course is actually full, but I'm on the reserve list and I'm assured that people always pull out, either before the start of the course or within in the first week. I'll most likely be waiting until the start of term before I hear anything. Until I find out, I'm kind of in limbo just now.

Whatever way it turns out for you, think of it as positive. If you get it, great stuff. If not, it's experience and a lesson for the next one.

I'm trying to find that thread with the MS Paint Footballers thing but can't seem to get it. Any help? :)

The Lolfootballers? Is it in Gold?

Nah, not that. People would draw a famous fooballer in paint and people would have to guess who it is. One guy was really good at it.

Ah, right. It must have been while I was offline. I don't remember it.

Try remembering a word that was posted that you don't come across every day. For example, searching for "Makelele" is going to bring up far less results that "Footballer". Was there maybe a footballer posted in it that doesn't get mentioned a lot. I'd definitely not try "Quitongo".

Guest Dunc?

How come, when a Native American throws a tomahawk at a target, or a tree or something, the blade always gets stuck in, and it never lands handle first and bounces off. The same applies to knives.

A travel related question here,

Does Hamilton West Train Station have a taxi rank outside it?

Thanks

Although the National Rail website says otherwise:
