    Well... I had that interview in M&S... They offered me a job but don't have any vacancies for the one I want, so have put me 'on hold' for upto 6 months. If I see a job I can do then I have to apply and they'll give me it. I was a bit with them, but then I suppose its good that they have put me on hold, I'd rather have got a job there and then though, it's kind of a "so near yet so far" moment.

    Secondly, I've just had a phone interview for Clark's shoes... They are reviewing these and then will be holding a group interview within the next few weeks and they'll contact me if I have an interview!

    Just thought I'd update you all as a few have asked :)

    Good luck with the Clark's interview, Josh.

    If you get the job, do you get a discount? Love Clark's shoes!

    Keep on looking. That's the way to find an opening.

    Not heard of a group interview. What on earth is that?

    33% off! Great ey! Wish they'd round it up to 35%... 33% is such an odd number!

    It's basically where they give a group of people a task and make them do it. I think it lets them know how you will work as part of a team and stuff;

    That might help!

    they can be adapted to the level that you are interviewing for Tink. You either love them or you hate them. A good point is that most people tend to relax a bit more it seems to sort out the power inbalance between a panel interview and interviewee- even if you don't have a table between you there is always a barrier to communication imo. When we interviewed for Nurses we asked a series of questions and got them to do a group presentation on a relevant subject that they didn't know about in advance. I found it very useful and it certainly showed teh people with enthusiasm and the team players. Some people don't like them though- i think i may feel a little self conscious but then when i had to do a presentation for my current job i was shaking in my boots
