Chatwee Update

Update - There's been some technical difficulties launching Chatwee onto our website so we will not be moving to Chatwee on Thursday.

As soon as we fix this issue, we'll announce another date for launching. We're really sorry for the delay in Chatwee, thanks so much for your patience.

Post of The Month (September)

Maisy is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey Shaunie,

​I care. I really relate to what you have been experiencing with the house falling apart, and things not getting fixed due to general shame of the state of the house and not knowing where to begin fixing things or who to contact (you don't want to come across rogue tradesmen). Not even having adequate heating and hot water. And clutter. Everywhere. It's horrible to live in such circumstances, I know. It's hard as well when you see everyone else living a 'normal' life and yet being unable to talk about your situation."

    Hey Distraction!

    I've never had a job interview myself, so I can't really give any advice from my experience :\

    Maybe someone else more sociable than me can 😂

    Have you checked the page the mix has on this?
    http://www.themix.org.uk/work-and-st...tips-1218.html

    There'll be plenty of other online stuff too

    Good luck with the interview! Let us know how it goes
    No matter how hard it will get
    We will pull always through
    ​Because I'll never forget
    ​It's the human thing to do

      Hey Distraction, congratulations on getting an interview. Wishing you the best of luck for it, let us know how it goes
      That article Aidan linked you to has some great advice and tips about job interviews that might be helpful to read through. This bit of advice is really good:

      Think of examples

      Saying, ‘I’m a really creative person’ doesn’t make it true. But saying, ‘I’m really creative. I have a photography blog I update three times a week’ will make an interviewer trust you. If you’re really a ‘team player’ you’ll need to demonstrate it. What kind of team? And what did you actually do that made you such a great teammate?
      Before the interview, make a list of the questions you might be asked and work out how you’d respond with examples.
      What helps for some people is to prepare some example questions and answers and practice reading through them. There's some great example questions on Prospects website here. It can also be good to think of a few questions to ask them at the end to show you're interested about the role

      Best of luck!

      - Aife
