Work

Finally, we have work. *huge sigh of relief*

We had training today and I won't go into too much detail on what the job is (although I'm sure there will be plenty of stories which I won't be able to help but post). Training was conducted by a wonderful Diablo at an (overly) leisurely pace, starting with a long coffee (at which point we saw a large dog saunter through the office). It's working with an international team doing media business research, not far from Amsterdam and fairly convenient to get to. Casual clothes. The pay isn't great although we've discovered is pretty standard (and we won't get paid till the next cycle in three weeks, after our sofinumber comes through), but what's great is we can choose our holidays under our contract.

There's even a hering stand outside. Things are going to be ok.

Well, work is good. Even better with a herring stand out the front. Good luck.

That's what Boronia Park is missing... a herring stand.

Most importantly, do you have internet access?

Julia said...

Thanks everyone!

Haha yes Boronia Park needs a herring stand!

Sadly no internet, although it's probably a good thing!

Congratulations! What exactly do you get at a herring stand? I mean, besides herring of course. How is it served?

Julia said...

You can get hering served with pickles and onion, or in a bread roll, and there's usually different herring salads, like mixed with mayonnaise, that you can get on their own or in a bread roll. Love herring!
