    I finally read it! I should probably have done that before meeting you, rather than picking up bits of goings-on from the UKITP thread...
    It is what it is unless it is what it isn't. Or isn't what it is. But if it isn't what it isn't then it is what it is.

    Do you expect anyone who was doing so to actually admit to it?

    Phew! HOkay, the first page should be safe for you now, Grlump, and anyone else with slow computers/connections. Don't say I never did nothin' for you. Also, tell me if there's any broken or repeated or missed links.

    I'm sorry to hear that, hun. I'm certain you'd have been great at it. Did you get any feedback from the interview?

    They sent me an email saying they couldn't get onto me (I'm gonna check what's going on there), and that I should call them back specifically to get feedback. My dad says that's a good thing?

    Yeah, it's always a smart move. It'll flag up any potential pitfalls or bloopers, thus increasing your odds at your next interview. Don't be too downhearted.

    Oh really? Now that's interesting. Clearly there must have been something about you they really liked - if they didn't, they wouldn't be going to all this trouble to find you. =o

    Then why didn't they give me the gorram job then?!

    Maybe they'll have another job for me to go for... That'd be pretty sweet.

    Probably means you were only just outclassed by somebody else, they probably had at least a few other people going for the job...

    Quite possibly this. They may have another opening coming up soon, or think you may be ideally suited for a related but different job they have open but can't offer you directly since they don't know all your personal circumstances.

    Either way, get in contact with them soon.

    After a lot of faffing about, I got the feedback:

    "Mark was impressed with your interview and he confirmed that it was very close between yourself and another candidate. However, Mark felt that you came across in the interview rather reserved and feels your answers were perhaps not answered in enough depth. Overall Mark we very impressed with your interview and should you see any further vacancies for Tribal, we would be delighted to receive your application."

    The "reserved" bit is a bit of a surprise - I was worried I was blathering on and stuff. The in depth answer bit is good to have reinforced, but honestly I'm not sure what I can do about that. Just gotta keep it in mind, I guess.
    It's really gratifying to know that I was a very close second, though, and that they'd be interested in hearing from me again.

    Updated, in a boring, whingy sort of way.
    Also I'll be in Leeds tomorrow (Thurs 12/4), if anyone cares to watch me throw my resume at people.

    Oh, you mean those Walkabout bars? There's quite a few of them in London and they have some of special recruitment policy for visiting folks. I think so anyway.

    I'm sure Archie will join me in denouncing that filthy northern weather you are experiencing and invite you to come down south where the weather is...
