I think it was the one that appeared on the list or a similar one. Whats the story with applying for two different jobs in one company? There were jobs jobs that i could have applied for.
I fi dont hear back in hte next few days & assume they rejected my application, is there any point in applying for another position or will they just say well this guy tried before & failed so bin his application.?
There seem to be a good few Linux/Unix admin jobs going round but getting in seems to be the problem. There are no college courses on linux and its difficult to convince people of your know how without a piece of paper to back it up.
