    Hi guys,

    I hadn't been on the forum for ages, but glad I had a quick look - thanks for the tip flexin! I actually had a interview at Reading, but didn't get the job. I though the interview went well though, so I've emailed the head of the department to see if it's worth applying again....bit desperate I guess, but I really liked it there - at least they know I'm keen!!

    I had 2 interviews - Reading and Sheffield, I really liked both places and interviews were ok, but there were just SO many people there, who had loads more experience than me....ah well next year I guess! I've been trying to get regular work experience in an audiology department/working with people with hearing problems, but no luck whatsoever....any ideas??!

    spitefulelf- I had a proper look and the Reading place want you to already have the MSc for that job. Shame you're having so much trouble getting work experience. I managed to contact my local hospital for a visit, and by the time I went for my job interview had visited 3 departments. Is there any way you could fund oyurself through the MSc and apply for jobs afterwards?

    I have had a look at the website where the Audiology job in Reading is advertised.

    Sambo- the Northgate ones are Trainee positions- often including some studying such as a Masters. The ones on NHS Jobs are the jobs for once training is complete. I think this is what you mean anyway )

    well I called them around 3 weeks before and they said they have already called for interview. I was not in the list and I asked about that they said they could nt call me because I need a work permit (because I am basically from India).

    No I didn't apply to bristol because I have a family and live in london and it would be difficult for us to relocate at the moment assuming the position was to start this autumn.

    I heard there is a 6 year route to qualification through experience, do you know anything about this?

    As far as i am aware you can work as a biomedical scientist for some years and then instead of having to wait for two years after your masters until state registration you can become state registered straight afterwards i.e. 4 years as a biomedical scientists, 2 years part time masters - - > state registered instead of two years masters and then two years of experience.

    Hi everyone
    Just found this thread.. it has been so helpful to me!
    Is anyone else applying for or has applied for haematology? This is what I hope to do but I'm not really sure whether my qualifications/experience are good enough. I'm in the middle of a biology degree and am taking a year out to get experience in haematology labs. Is this enough or is it better to have more specialised qualifications like a masters in haematology or something?
    Anyone who has applied for haematology, what qualifications/experience do you have?
    Thanks so much,
    Emma

    Hey everyone, just found this thread and found it soo helpful. However I was just wandering how long it takes for the NHS to get back to you after an interview? Some ppl have told me that if u dont hear back on that day or the following then you are pretty much unsuccessful. The interview didnt go too well either and just want to be put out my misery and actually officially know :-(

    emle- Good luck with haematology- i'm sure someone who applied this year will be along to help out soon :-)

    Star6glimmer- They usually say about two weeks to hear back. I think what happens is their first choice for the job gets called usuallu on that day or the following day, and depending on their answer (they get some time to think about accepting the job), they'll be in touch with other people either to offer the job or to tell them they were unsuccessful. So there's always hope even if you don't hear straight away, good luck. What job have you applied for?

    Star6glimmer, good luck with it! I haven't even started yet- I applied for Audiology so I do a one year MSc first which doesn't start for another few weeks yet. Officially start at the real job in about 13 months!! Exciting though. Let us know when you hear back from your job :-)
