    Wow Beverly! That’s really impressive =)) Congratulations.

    I wish I could say I’d worked for CSIRO and Microsoft, but I haven’t even had a job before =/

      6 months ago I didn’t have CSIRO *or* Microsoft either.. so you have no idea how quickly things change sometimes 🙂 A year from now you’ll probably be happily working!

    That’s awesome! Congratulations because you deserve it!

    How long is your white jacket/suit? I just bought a white brushed cotton coat a couple of days ago and I’m planning to wear it to the first day of school (3rd year of university). I think a white jacket is very eye catching.

      Thanks!

      My skirt is about knee length.. the jacket is fitted and falls to my hips. It’s really nice and yeah, white definitely is the way to go. I refuse to wear black because everyone else does and you simply don’t stand out if you wear plain’ ol black :T But white is fresh and eye-catching!

    WOW CONGRATS, Bev! Have a glass of champagne, you deserve it! ^_^ Out of curiousity, how much did they offer you (annually)? I’m going to graduate soon and I’m currently doing some research on fresh graduates’ starting salaries. Thanks!

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!! I’m sure you blew them away with your awesome bubbly personality and enthusiasm. You know, sometimes, Mr. Top-Marks is just so bland and online spielothek verboten icky that although he does well in school/athletics/music/whatever, he might have trouble working as part of a team. Especially nowadays when employers really look for people who can connect well to other people. So again, CONGRATS!! Nothing like being hired by Microsoft to chase away any last bits of that blue funk, huh?

    I think a lot of “super top marks” people tend to be lacking in one area which is very important, common sense! So sometimes they are very clever but come accross as not as clever in an interview as they are just not that way inclined. Obviously the best girl got the job, best wishes for your first day and have a great time!
