Interview @ Detica over..

I had my interview with Detica yesterday. At last!!! Remember me complaining that their excuse for not giving me an interview earlier was that they were busy. Actually, I kinda believe this now after I was with the company having the interview. Looking at the way they did the interviews, they did not do it every day. And also, their workforce is only 1000 strong, and for a company that claims to be the leading IT constant in the UK, that is a low figure. But the future is bright for them though, considering they double their workforce in a year. Anyway, back to the interview

The interview as a whole was very good. At the beginning, they ask if what I knew about Detica, and yeah basic question and was able to answer it. Then we went on to my presentation, and that was about my web project that I done a few weeks ago, and that I think went very well, apart from some hiccups on the site that we design not working 100% because of a beta browser being used (I won't go into this, I will just bore you). But yeah, the presentation was very comprehensive and so after that, he couldn't really ask me anymore question since it was all covered. Leadership, working in teams, the way I can program, problem solving, communication, work experience, EVERYTHING. So the next part was this case study

Now, this case study was a bit of a surprise for me, since we were not told about this prior to the interview, but it went very well indeed. It was about the new ID cards that the UK government are proposing, and basically solve some problems and stuff, and I answered it very well. So yeah, it seems all good, but I have to wait till like 2 weeks to get a reply, and hopefully, fingers cross I can get this job. HEHE

Now going off topic reporting some news stuff, there was a girl, Sandi Thom who comes from, Tooting London was a struggling singer/song writer, and was struggling to get noticed. So guess what she decided to do, well hold live gigs on the internet. Only 70 people tuned in for her first gig on the net, but her recent gig received over 70,000 people. And now she has a record contract RCA/SonyBMG. I haven't heard her music, but I gonna check it out and let you guys know if it is any good, but yeah, if any of you guys are desperate to get notice and get a record contract, forget Pop Idol or X-factor, all you need is a PC, a webcam and set up your own gig.. HEHE.

Now on to some more depressing stories, the parents of Damilola Taylor who died 6 years ago are still trying to get justice for their son's murder, and now today the latest of a long line of trails to convict potential murders had fallen short again. I wonder how the parents of Damilola Taylor are coping with this, I have no idea in the world how they can do it. Oh well, hopefully the murders are caught soon, since racist attacks are so cowardly!!

Anyway, I been blabbering on here, and this is probably my last interesting update until my exams are finish. Sorry guys, I have to revise now... hehe.. but anyway, I hope I can do these updates more often. Cya later everyone
