As an old codger I know my fitness levels are set much lower than you fit young(er) things but am worried about whether my grey cells can take the pace!!! Also am in full time employment and am carer for a very elderly (even more elderly than me) relative in my off time.. so outside activities type questions should be a laugh! Any ideas.. words of encouragement for an old crock gratefully accepted!!! :rolleyes:

    Something like that i guess, yeah! Be confident, friendly, stand tall, and be prepared for rejection! (sorry but you have to)

    Indeed. I can't really add too much to what's already been said.

    Look presentable, have a CV, smile, be quite talkative (but not too overconfident). I know people who have been offered jobs on the spot, after walking in off the street and having a chat with the manager.

    Whilst doing this kind of thing - clear your diary! I did a lot of groundwork leading up to a job and was invited to the final interview (at which they basically would have given me the job). Unfortunately, I had planned a holiday some time in advance, and couldn't make the final interview. If you can't make the interview, expect to be rejected - as busy people won't skip to your tune!

    Good luck!
