Joining the long march
Nathalie got her first job yesterday, she had sent off about forty letters around the area for a part-time job and the third reply produced an interview last Saturday morning. Having impressed at the interview she was asked back on Monday for some 'till training' and last night was offered a part-time job in a local convenience store.
We all have to start somewhere and the money will come in useful as she continues with her A levels, we've both made it clear to her though that studies come first however lucrative the offers of overtime and extra hours are. From a purely economic perspective I think the shop owner is getting a good deal, he pays the very lowest minimum wage and gets somebody who needs money and is very willing to put in the time, she also caught him at the right time as her CV and letter arrived the day before he was due to advertise the post.
