BB Oz are having their semi annual sale with decent discounts the cashmere jumpers are now quite well priced however who in their right mind would wear these? HC my vote is for the Striped Grenadine
So the farce is strong in your family.
Been there done that and it will happen a lot more in the next few months as the recruitment freeze is over. I know a couple of APS Institutions who are masters of this game, I used to ask before interview 'is there a preferred candidate for the role' "NO" Bullshit the stitch up happens at the end of the day. Gives me the shits as it calls my impartiality and objectivity into question never mind issues of nepotism and governance.
I've read a few books on CD recommendations and reviews and I agree with his assessment however I would add that I found them both incredibly and violently misogynistic, he spares no punches with his crime scene and autopsy descriptions. Irene cites a couple of books I have read but this novel is darker more senselessly diabolical in terms of the cat and mouse game being played between Verhoeven and his protagonist. There are also a couple of other games being played in...

I went for a role last week and after they had 100 applicants they took the job down. Mind you there are now 8,000 unemployed APS in Canberra at present.Most panels I have been on interview on average 7 but a bulk recruitment the numbers get a lot higher.Can't have just 1 for an APS job APC rules require transparency and interviewing 1 based on received applications would be seen as nepotism. If it came to that they would simply readvertise.

The interesting this is that the length of the ties in those days was shorter to accommodate the high waist, I think it was generally referred to a Box cut. I had a fair few suits cut in that manner in my 20's. But then I prefer that style which is available in Bills Chinos although not to the same...
As a HR Consultant I can attest to that to my chagrin. I was recently asked to provide feedback to an APS muppet and gave it to her straight.You don't need to interview 20 people for one position even if you want to have a merit list.At least 10 would not have made the cut off if I did the shortlist as they had no HR experience.You don't give people 40 minutes to answer 5 questions.A fail is a fail and I/you should not care or be intimidated because she is the Directors...
