I like to cut a long story short so here goes.
I applied for a job as a Video Games Tester in Germany back in April, got a couple of e-mails back but nothing positive, then all was quiet.
Anyway, yesterday I recieved a phone call from Nintendo (Alpha - people who hire for nintendo), I was told that there was a vacancy available bur I'd have to do a test first and would I be interested, if I pass the test I'd have to go to Germany on Friday and have an interview.
If I'm successful in the interview then I start work on Monday.
at the time i didn't take the start date in, so I did the test and sent it back (had 1 hour to complete it, only took 10 - 20 mins). I sent it back, and recieved a phone call today saying that I was successful in the test could I ring them back.
Well now the shock has worn off slightly and I have realised I can't just drop everything and live in Germany as of Monday if my interview was successful, which was expected of me, I rang them up and explained the situation.
They weren't happy to say the least I was narrowed down to 4 applicants...
Trail of thought has gone now, I sent an email appologising for not taking the interview due to the short amount of time they gave me...
bit down now, may have been my ideal job although the pay £948/month after tax is less than my current job and ebay.
Deep down I believe I have done the right thing, I have gf that i've been with for over 2 years who is at uni and I can't just up and leave her (thats another reason for not going, not the main reason)
