So I went to Shannon for a job interview on Friday. As with most interviews, it seemed to go well but there was one part I could have done better in and maybe projected a little more confidence in that situation. In terms of what he's looking for, I do have a certain level of experience. He has a Mazak turning centre which uses a Mazatrol 640 controller. The Mazak Integrex I worked with in my previous job had the more modern Mazatrol 640mt pro controller and the tool turret was different. But I should be able to adapt. I recognised one of the guys working there. He did the same computer-aided engineering course that I did. So that also gives me confidence that my level of qualifications and experience are up to the requirements of the job. I've been out of work for 3 months though and that means I'm a bit rusty and it does put a dent in my confidence. I need to have more faith in my own ability. The programme is a Mazatrol CNC programme (conversational).

This is the view from my apartment. Thankfully it's not like that today. This photo was taken on a day of particularly heavy rain. The building to the right is Dooley's hotel. The building on the hill in the distance is what I'm told used to be a hotel. Never been up there. Just a little snippet of boring Waterford.
