    Re: Turning down Interac's first offer

    That's interesting! I just got my placement this morning, not where I 'requested' but actually it looks perfect! It's in North Okayama so I'm sure I'll be very happy for at least a year!

    Re: Interac Spring 2015 Candidates

    Such a coincidence! I live basically in between the two



    I was going to interview in London but it was full so they asked if I would go to Oxford (I ended up being the only one there!).

    Ha fair enough, well I've been offered a job with Interac and they seem to not really care if you do, as long as it doesn't affect your work. So I might just give it a go! The next challenge is...
