“Aim for the stars and maybe you'll reach the sky”
Applications to specialty training start today in Scotland, tomorrow for GP and the rest to follow shortly.
to all our juniors who will be applying this year.
Of course, this is also an opportunity, not to be missed, in front of those who were responsible for the heartache of 2007, to seek forgiveness, show compassion, heal and correct this year ....
In 2007, my son was not shortlisted for round 1a and was not suited after the guaranteed interview despite an array of qualifications and attributes. He was beginning to lose faith, so, I wrote this below and pinned it to the board above his desk and .. he got 'his' job at the end :-)
Here is what I wrote and good luck to all our juniors who are applying this year: -
Trust in yourself and your abilities, you're very good, you are and have always been a winner,
Wake up the fighter in you, you can win this,
Dream big and remember, your job will have only your name on it,
Think systematically and get very well organised and take things one step at the time,
Check daily for jobs on NHS jobs website as well as individual deaneries,
Remember, your job is currently vacant, it needs you,
Fill your application form and read the 'white boxes' aloud, then fix and always keep a copy to revise before the interview (I did the copying)
If you don't get your first choice job, don't lose faith, it wasn't yours, let go of it and keep on applying till you get yours,
Be confident at the interview and don't be afraid to say you don't know when you don't. This shows that you know your limitations.
The job is yours, all you have to do is go get it.
