New Job Offer
It was friday, 4pm, and I was still at work. The office phone rang, and the man on the phone tells me he is the human resources director in Veneto Banca Holding. He tells me he wants to meet up with me for a chat as soon as possible!!
The blog followers already know that my contract ends on the 31st of July, so this was all great news for me.
On the plus side, I was going to go to Friuli anyway this weekend, so I just took monday off to go to this interview.
Upon reaching Veneto Banca Holding, I was pretty impressed by the size of the whole building:
There’s even a stone statue in the entrance hall haha!
I must say that I was quite impressed.
They are offering me a job but I really don’t know for sure what i’ll be doing exactly at the moment. It’s something quite specific involving how all the small banks that are part of the Veneto Banca Holding group work and being given projects, working on spreadsheets, creating budgets… it all sounds interesting and quite hard.
I haven’t signed anything official yet, but from what they told me in the interview, including (when would you like to start, because we’d like you to start right away), I think it’s pretty obvious. We decided it would be best for me to start on the 17th of August, which will give me some time to move my stuff and find an appartment.
All in all, I can’t wait to start my new job in this huge building, and also looking forward to finding my own new place to stay nearby.
So I guess this is where my career starts to lift off. Pretty important step in my life i believe.
Job aside, I really went to Friuli for another reason. It was Roberto’s (a longtime family friend of our’s) 60th birthday, and he had a big party in this beautiful Villa/restaurant. I got to see Luca (his son and my friend since i was 2 years old. Visit his italian Blog: http://www.ipernova.it ), Matteo (his older brother) and I also brought along Gloria, my girlfriend. We had a great time and it was great to remenisce old stories and catch up on new ones.
We also had a wonderful, fish based lunch.
What a fantastic weekend!! Now i have 3 weeks to get all my stuff sorted, friends to see for the last time, packing my stuff, and finding a new house!!!
Oh I almost forgot. I will also have my last ever concert with OSFA on the 25th of July. We will play our old songs/covers. It will be a sad moment for me. Will keep you updated with all that.
