    you can go back.... if you really want to!

    hows jobs?
    I know a few people who are still there, 2nd, 3rd years all that, will have to pay them a visit at some point

    job hunting is fun still :p:, rejection for any little thing, a good one was because these was too many people applying

    annoying as well this company who for ages have only been really asking for 2.2, has gone this year nah we want 2.1's now

    where you working?

    Apparently he'd fallen asleep, rolled off the bed and remained asleep down the back of the bed. But left all the lights on and tv on from last night. I found him when he started shouting he was stuck

    nice, that for a BMS job, addenbrooks is meant to be a pain to work with, dunno about for

    thats the trouble, plus these too many grads at the moment going for too few jobs, and they are coming from all degrees

    If you work at addenbrooks you can work anywhere, and a ,lot of labs in essex are closing due to new way of processing it. Both for BMS jobs.

    Youd think though with a science degree you'd stand more of a chance?

    addenbrooks see also sorts so i heard, that new processing from what i was told seems very silly

    they don't seem to care its all about what you got

    where talking to Americans its seems very few jobs care about your GPA

    The first line doesn't quite make sense,... am i being thick

    It does seem silly, chemlsford aren't taking a student this year, and colchester histo look like it's gonna be shutting, ipswich will probably stay open.

    that was just me and my typing

    it just seems silly to transporting samples like than, when say A&E has a 4 hour turn over and so on

    one of these things that will cost more than it saves

    it does, especially the distance they are going to have to send some samples. Emergency samples for Colchester will remain in house, but all gp stuff will be sent, so lots of job losses and probably longer results. But histology isn't included in the 4hour turn over, the emergency ones would be frozen sections and they can just get someone in.

    getting someone is will just cost more, makes no sense

    but to most people the NHS is doctors and nurses, and forgot about the important stuff that happened behind, and those £100,000 officer managers won't see there jobs go :p:

    this is very true. If Chelmsford don't make me permanent i don't know if i will stay in the nhs though as it does seem silly some of the funding. I have been told that my job isn't important before now.

    start as a bms then apply for one at the IBMS, it helps if the lab supports you.

    He's not a student, works in braintree, but where ever i go, he's coming too ( slightly dependant friendship is probably the best way of describing it, he's a lovely bloke, but has a lot of problems)
