    Jobs

    Hey guys,

    Sorry i'm not around as much anymore. Everything has been rather hectic.
    Unfortunately the head chefs position i was meant to be taking at the end of the year fell through and now i'm left in something of an awkward position. I'm going to try my hardest to make the best of this but it's all a bit tough. Does anyone know of any hospo jobs going in wellington? I can't find bloody anything at the moment, anyone need catering? Got a date you wanna impress by pretending you can cook? Let me know!

    On a side note i'm out of hospital now, feeling like a million bucks and i owe it to all of you guys. I know some of you think this forum has become a little dead but for the ones that stick around, you're like a second family to me and I owe you my life and eternal gratitude for always being around when i needed someone most.

    Anyway, just thought i'd ask, just in case

    Hey Angus it sucks big time that you have lost that job. Had they given you a letter of offer or a contract before it fell through? Anyways I am really glad to hear you are out of hospital and feeling a million. I am sure everyone else here will feel the same. Good luck with the job hunt. For your own sake take any job that is offered even if it is flipping burgers and then once you have some cash coming in you can look further for the role you really want.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    +1 . As Rushy said take any job , as I can say when the chips where Down for me work wise (carpenter) I take anything , even shit money , and always came out on top in the end . Someone would offer me a better position or opportunity . Gets you noticed , hard to get exposure at home .

    Sorry to hear about the Job Angus. As has already been said: 'one door shuts and another door opens'. Are you taking pre orders on your book?
    If my work annoys me, I cull them

    I'm trying, the problem is finding those kinds of jobs. My record bars me from anything other than favours these days.

    We had a lot of travel and wedding photos, and priced up buying a few albums and getting the pics printed etc .... Sort of stumbled on these guys - Make, publish, promote & distribute books with Blurb | Blurb

    We did 3 different books and got a few copies for gifts etc... worked out cheaper plus they look really good.

    Looks like the web site and pricing has changed a bit since then, but you used to down load a program, do all your editing on your computer until your happy with it (all free so far), upload the file back to them, pay and the printed book arrives in the post a couple of weeks later.

    Quite a few templates were in the package as well, so just copy and past text etc.... Recipe book templates were certainly there.

    They also had a shop, where you could make your book available for others to purchase and you set the price (they take their cost and return the rest to you) and the books were only printed as people wanted them, which is a big advantage over traditional publishing where you pay for 1-3000 books up front. Downside is that it costs a wee bit more.


    I am positive that there will be others like this around now, but we were/are really happy with the finish of these ones.


    Just a thought.......
