So, relying on a wee bit of nepotism his big brother got him an interview with the place he used to work at when he left school. Credit where credit's due, he did well in both interviews and was offered a job :-) A casual contract at first but all going well he should be offered a full time permanent contract. They are aware he is going university and will help him transfer to a Hilton in Glasgow if he wants a part time job while studying.
No idea what he'll be earning yet but anything is good after having zero money! We haven't discussed dig money yet and we need to be very careful about the effect it might have on maintenance from his dad. But he's really happy :-)
Now here's the eye opener. His initial interview lasted 35 minutes followed up by a second interview several days later lasting 15 minutes. Total interview time 50 minutes, for a waiter position. My last interview for a teaching post lasted 25 minutes. Something not quite right with that...
