I've got an interview for a teamleader position in a call centre tomorrow morning. I don't know the first thing about team leading. It was my work coach who suggested I apply for it when I went to see him last Thursday; I wouldn't have considered it otherwise -- until now, I've always worked as a logistics/services coordinator or portfolio manager, admittedly in customer service environments; but I've never had to directly manage a team before. I'm sh*tting myself.

The proposed working hours are another stumbling block: the position is for evenings and weekends exclusively. I don't mind weekends, but evenings? In another town, with me dependent on public transport? Excuse me if I'm not overly enthusiastic.

But my overriding worry at the moment is: how to present a professional image of myself if I don't have the first practical idea of what it means to lead a team of call centre agents? They must be desperate to find somebody (probably due to those weird working hours) if they invite me in for a chat. I presume they've read my cv...

While I'm waiting for the maintenance man to get my central heating ready for winter, I'll list my choice for 'movie that disappointed me' in the 30 Day Movie Meme:

I love Saturday Night Fever; I think it's a great film. So when I heard that John Travolta would reprise his role as Tony Manero in a sequel, I couldn't wait to see it...and was disappointed when it turned out the film didn't have the narrative quality of its predecessor; and Tony Manero, although he had left Brooklyn, still behaved like an immature berk.

Day 12 - Best soundtrack/background music in a scene
Day 13 - Favorite animated movie
Day 14 - Favorite film in black and white

Day 16 - Your guilty pleasure movie
Day 17 - Favorite series of related movies
Day 18 - Favorite title sequence
Day 19 - Best movie cast
Day 20 - Favorite kiss
Day 21 - Favorite romantic couple
Day 22 - Favorite final scene/line
Day 23 - Best explosion or action scene
Day 24 - Quote you use most often
Day 25 - A movie you plan on watching (old or new)
Day 26 - Freakishly weird movie ending
Day 27 - Best villain
Day 28 - Most overhyped movie
Day 29 - Movie you have watched more than ten times
Day 30 - Saddest death scene
Day 31 - Scene that made you stand up and cheer

ETA: Willem, the engineer, has managed to find and fix whatever was wrong with the heating system; though he has warned me that next time it fails, he won't be able to do any more repairs as the parts needed are no longer available.
