That's the thing, I've been calling them like some sort of madman since February :lol: because at the time I just randomly sent them my CV to see if they want me in general... but they didn't reply, so I called them to check if they'd got it, which they hadn't so I sent it again, and then it was OK, but then nothing happened again and after a couple of weeks I called again to see what's up and they were like, ow, how good of you to call, we have an internship position available, please send your CV to... :P so then I sent my CV again to the Duch foreign ministry who apparently were handling this whole thing and THEN I got an email saying I couldn't apply because I wasn't a dutch citizen, which I was really annoyed about because I DO have a dutch citizenship, which I wrote to them in my reply, but I was worried they had already made their decision about it so I called them but they were closed, then I called them next day and they transferred me ALLL around the world, honestly, by the time I was finished I knew all the workers of all departments here and in NL :lol: anyway, in the end it turned out that it wasn't THEM claiming I wasn't dutch enough, but the LONDON embassy, to which I had also sent my CV a few weeks earlier :oops: :oops: :oops: OK, I admit that was a bit silly of me, not to check exacly where the email had come from. But never mind :D At the last phone call they said it was all right now and they're going to let me know... but that hasn't happened yet...
But I'll call them next week if they don't :lol:

Sounds like a good plan......but what a runaround you've had! You should get extra kudos for sheer bloody minded persistence.

At least with your persistence you are showing them how committed you are and that is something that could count in your favour when they get around to organizing themselves. In the meantime, good luck with the airport job! :D

Congratulations for your daughter passing her driving test Janet. :clap: :dance:

Best of luck with the job search, Mc, but the embassy giving you the runaround now, kinda indicates to me that they may not be so great to work for.

The airport job sounds terrific. Would you get flight discounts, too?

It'd be BRILLIANT if I did :D don't think so though...but who knows? If it is the case, I'll be visiting a lot more to enjoy the rain :lol:

The reason the embassy job would be perfect is that I do need to work at least 120 hours as an intern in my study-field (international relations) to complete my degree, and it doesn't really get any more international than an embassy :D

Thanks everyone!

Thanks for the good wishes on behalf of the daughter. However my fingers will be gnawed to the bone tomorrow as she is driving home from Shropshire. Her dad will be with her but it will be her first time on a motorway. So in spite of spending every college run up and down the M6 talking her through my driving decisions........I'm nervous :(

That's one thing that I've always wondered about driving lessons and tests; once passed, a driver can go straight onto the motorway without any training or experience. I do believe that driving lessons should include some motorway experience once the instructor feels they student can handle it so that, if nothing else, knowledge of lane etiquette and use is acquired. Anyway, I'm sure your daughter will be fine. :D

Thanks all, will keep you informed

Congratz Janet! I'm sure she'll be fine, though I can understand the worry.

Good luck MC!
