Since leaving The Frontier Group in late June I’ve been watching the job lines and shooting off resumes here and there. I’ve been to a few interviews, had a few offers, but now I’ve decided to take a job at CDU in Darwin.
When I sent my resume to CDU, I didn’t hear back from them for a few weeks. I figured they’d quietly discarded my resume, which I was a bit sad about. Then, while I was on holiday in Darwin, they rang to ask if I could do a phone interview. Luckily I was in a position to interview in person, which I think helped my chances.
Last week CDU offered me the spot, with a good base rate and excellent (17%) superannuation. The super is one of the things I found most attractive. Also attractive were the location (I’m a Darwin boy) and the opportunity to become familiar with Oracle technologies, which continue to be in wide demand.
I’ve verbally accepted the offer today and I expect to receive the contract paperwork in the next few days. I’m looking forward to it.
