Good Monday to all~ Have you all begun dining out, or remained at home? I guess there must be quite a mix – in fact, we haven't really gotten many requests here, and a few gentlemen told me they prefer to continue waiting for a bit longer, to ensure that it's safe to go out! Good precautions to take, I must admit~
On another note, I have something of a request, if you will. Now that restaurants, cafes etc have opened back up, I will be able to meet more people seeking to be members in person! However, as we decided to give up our office about a year ago, I've been working from home the whole time.
This means that whenever I hold interviews with the potential members, I have to take commute into account, and leave the house at least an hour or so before the interview. So… it's really important that you let me know if you're going to be late, need to postpone, or even cancel 🥺🥺
I don't really mind latecomers that much, I know how terrible traffic jams and train breakdowns can be! Sometimes you might be unfamiliar with the location – no problem there either, just drop me a message and let me know so I can guide you!
However, if you need to postpone or cancel the interview, I do ask that you give us a heads-up as soon as possible! I always send confirmations a day before and on the same day, and if I get affirmative replies, the natural course of action is, surely, to start heading out. But there have been a few times when, after receiving confirmations up to an hour before the interview, I suddenly get a message that they aren't able to come, or sometimes… even total no-shows without a message or anything.
I hope that everyone understands that I do have to set aside a good chunk of time for not only the interviews, but also commuting, so it can be disappointing and frustrating that I've basically wasted time travelling to and fro for pretty much nothing, and there isn't really a lot I can do while in transit either!
With that said, I hope that our potential members have a better understanding of our work processes and time, and that we are all able to respect each other better! I can't wait to meet many of you soon – just remember to let me know~
