I finally got an offer for my pre-registration placement! It's a very early offer as placement only starts in August next year. Well, at least I do not have to worry about it while I continue on with my final year.

So, during the interview (by two different hospitals), they asked me about the recent happenings in the pharmacy world. Sad to say, the things that I have been reading about in the Pharmaceutical Journal did not get asked (well, maybe a small part) and they asked me about NICE which I did not even think to read about as preparation. So I had to be honest and said, "I'm sorry but I have not recently read NICE guidelines so I cannot tell you anything about their recent reviews." I couldn't very well talk about something that I haven't even read.

Anyway, after the very brief interview (it only went on for around 15-20 minutes), I was asked if I would accept if either of them offered me a placement, and to sign a document saying I will consider any other offers from hospitals in the West Midlands. I said yes to everything. In my mind, I found myself a desperate person who does not mind wherever I will work at in the future. I didn't think I did very well during the interview but it was a very big improvement from the first one.

But I was glad to hear from one of hospitals the next morning offering me a place. She asked me whether I would like to accept and with a bit of hmmm... I just said yes. She did say she's not going to pressure me into accepting but I did anyway. So all that's left to do is to email them formally saying I accept.

Well, it's a relief to be able to say that I have a job when I graduate. That I do not have to worry about finding one when I finish with my studies. But the thing is, where has the time gone? How is it that 3 years has flown pass so quickly that I have a glimpse of it and now I am about to start my 4th and final year tomorrow?
