Yes but you have to be able to find reception before they can greet you.

I just discovered that the CRM we use has 'achievements'.

When did this become a thing? :?

9 more tasks closed and I earn a badge.

Don't laugh this stuff works. Why else would someone carry a gnome through an entire video game? Pointless tasks awarded, makes it look like your doing something even when you're not.

MHTL wants to know if he can get a job at your place.

I wonder if sending MHTL an application form counts as a task.

(The whole system is pointless because I can create and close tasks whenever I like. Need to make a coffee? Create a task. Got the coffee? Close task.)

Interviewed someone else today. Things look good for him but his journey is diabolical to get to us. Not sure if he'll join, but we're hoping he will.

I'll be 'freelance' nursing soon, after handing in my notice by the end of the month. I'm waiting on training for my job offer at the council and for the temporary post to become full time when the new units have finished being built sometime down the line.

The money is better but I'm still shitting myself not having a regular guaranteed salary, sick pay and annual leave.

When you leave a job, it is a P45 you're supposed to receive, isn't it?
