I'm booked into the snow from the 19th July so said i'll work until then. Unless director number 2 just pays me out the two weeks now which he has been known to do... Woohoo free holiday!

Pick your resign date sooner rather than later.
Resign in the morning asap from getting in, and try not to bring attention that you are taking a meeting.
Make sure your resignation letter is ready to go.
Resign directly to your manager verbally. Provide the letter of resignation to your manager afterwards.

Best of luck!

LIR, this couldnt have been better advice, thank you! First thing, boss walks in, I follow. Perfect.

So when someone says "I've gotta see a guy about a rock" they're actually referring to you?

Thats pretty awesome.

I ask companies what they need, and when they tell me I say "Our product totally does that!" and they give us money.

Gun for hire aka contractor. Was studying the last few months, but unfortunately I need money to get by. That said, gives me some time to get an idea I've got in mind to put into practice.

Getting my Home Energy Rating Scheme accreditation (licensed to conduct thermal performance assessments of buildings and provide advice on improving the thermal efficiency) along with my solar PV design accreditation and start up a small business consulting with clients on cost-effective methods to improve their homes for thermal comfort and advise on appropriate PV system sizes for their properties relevant to existing electricity use. Could do the occasional design and consulting job when I go back to uni after hours and try and support myself that way.

Hey, is any one here in recruitment consultancy? Is it as hard/long hours as I've been hearing? And are the estimations of pay I have been reading correct? (80,000 +) if kpi's are met?
I've done lots of googles but would be good to hear from the horses mouth.

Isn't that what Dubz does?

I've got a mate who is in that sort of work.

Don't think that sort of cash is out of the realm of possibility at all, given that he's on about $60k after being in it for a year and a half. Can be long hours and tough, though. Frustrating when some **** says yes then changes their mind, so I hear. Or when the person putting up the jobs goes 'yeah, that was a market test. Sorry'.

I'm not a consultant but I used to pay recruitment cosultants and that salary is pretty easily achievable. Especially in the mining and IT sector where the salaries are often quite high so if you are working on commission aswell it certainly helps.

bartender for only one month more, pretty stoked

started off as green as they come 2 years ago, didn't know a bloody sav blanc from my own arse, now i'm the manager and confident I could run a small bar on my own successfully if need be

but yeah, finished uni, so hopefully won't have to fall back on that !

(fingers crossed)
