I recently applied for a job at SSE Renewables. It was sort of an apprenticeship and the training would take 4 years. Locations are north of Scotland as well as the Scottish islands.
For those who don’t now SSE, SSE works with energy, the post itself would have been mostly outside, working on sides which includes repairing things.
So I was asked to do an online test. So good so far.
But I failed the test, probably the second one. I was so disappointed. I am certain I did not take enough time to properly read the sample questions so when completing the actual test, it was more guessing than knowing the answers.
Which is my own fault as I thought I would not have enough time to complete it but let me tell you something:
I really, really wanted this job! It was what I was looking for for so long. Being permanently outside, repairing things and learning new skills. And I know I would have done a very good job!
There are people out there, who might not be good when it comes to tests, but would have passed when actually doing it in person!
I just wished this company would have invited me for a test day so I could have shown them what I am capable of.
After all the job I applied for is a apprenticeship which means they have to teach me, right?
Apparently it wasn’t meant to be, but I am still gutted….
