best; applied for a new internal role at work, which i'd be great at and already have quite a bit of experience at.
worst; the recruiting manager has a vendetta against me, so probably wont even get a interview Sad

she

she's notoriously a massive cunt. the reason she hates me is no fault of my own. a mistake was made (wasnt me), but she openly blamed me for it infront of about 10 colleagues. then when she found out it wasnt me, it was her friend (whos leaving, and is the role i applied for), she brushed the issue under the carpet and joked about to another colleague that they'd keep it quiet from me

there's really no point. the people who matter know it wasn't my fault.

my biggest issue was the way she spoke to me/belittled me infront of 10 or so people. i just took it and remained polite and tried to help/fix the issue whilst she looked completely unprofessional

speak to her direct.

call her out on it and maybe make a little threat?

maybe something along the lines of the following

"Hi, that job thats going….I know there were some issues in that area before that got unfairly pointed in my direction but which I actually helped resolve? well…I was walking past your house the other night with a can of petrol and wondered if youd consider me for the role?

Yeah no doubt Jord's to do that is a bitch move in the first place, to do it when you've wrongly accused someone is cuntish.

Worst: About an hour ago I spilt a cardboard cup of flaming hot tea all over myself while on the phone at work. Socked my trousers and my top.
Best: Had a pair of shorts and a t-shirt handy.
Worst x2. The shorts are ridiculous and the t-shirt about 2 sizes too small.

i worked for mark warner out there as a ski guide. as for tips: at every possible location get a seasonaire card for discounts, its expensive out there, don't bother with buying really expensive kit, it will get broken and or nicked. I've got loads of recommendations drinking wise and skiing wise etc, drop me a pm and ill give you a full list if you need
