New job at a sign makers

My new sign makers position

Just got a job at a sign makers

I have been looking to change job and applied for a tonne of jobs last month eventually getting on at a sign makers in Norwich. I really wanted to get involved in the print industry and so went for lots of jobs in this field but the competition for jobs out there is really fierce at the moment and one chap told me over 300 people went for a trainee position he had. I didn’t even hear back from lots of the jobs I applied for but I did score about ten interviews which was really good I thought.

Some of the jobs meant a heap of travelling so although I would have taken them in a second I did have a shortlist of two jobs I really wanted to get. One was at a big printers in Norwich that specialised in large scale print work like brochures, flyers and stationery etc and the other a much smaller outfit that were specialist sign makers.

The day of the sign makers interview came it was ideal for me as I live about 10 minutes walk away from the unit they are in. I was nervous but the guys interviewing me were the owner and his sone and to be honest they were really relaxed about the whole thing. They even said it was mainly about the personality of the successful candidate not the experience as it was such a small team he wanted the eventual person to fit in with the fun and relaxed attitude he had created within the business.

We got on really well as we liked similar things and I wanted the job even more when I left, understandably they told me lots of people had applied and they would let me know but also they wanted someone appointed quickly as they had loads of work on and needed the help. The next day I got the call from them to say they really wanted me to start as soon as I could.

Current boss let me leave for the sign makers job

I went straight into speak to my current boss and to be honest he was as good gold about it all and even said I could leave whenever I wanted and he would sort out cover for my notice period. I always got on really well with him and he knew this was something I really wanted to do and so said he didn’t want to stand in my way or cause me problems with the new job so I finished up the week and got ready for the new challenge that started on the Monday.

I was so excited over the weekend, I could not wait for Monday to come and start my new job as a sign makers. The weekend dragged for a change but soon enough it was Monday and it was great to get in and meet everyone at the sign makers to get down to a new job and fresh challenge.
