New Job - Look At Me etc 15:18 - May 21 with 2183 viewsJ2BLUE

Long time J2 watchers will remember me bitching about my last job on a regular basis. Well, after leaving there and somehow falling into betting on sports for a living for three years I have just been offered a new job.

It's working from home in the sports betting industry which as you can imagine is right up my street. With the pandemic causing job losses and having nothing on my CV for the past three years (literally off the radar, no job, not claiming anything etc) it's something that has filled me with literal dread every time i've thought about it. I posted on here a couple of years ago asking for advice from people in payroll as I was going to make something up about working on a self employed basis. The posters who worked in payroll both agreed I wouldn't be asked for any evidence as it has nothing to do with PAYE. I have looked back through my PMs to try and find the names of these posters but I unfortunately I can't (i'm so damn popular it's like finding a needle in a haystack :D). I would like to thank them both for their advice though. Thankfully I did not need to lie in the end and have been one hundred percent honest with my new employer which is much better all around.

Thank you to all those who urged me to just quit my last job as it was having a massive effect on me and I hated it. That wasn't the only reason and my dad having a heart attack (he's fine now) was part of it so I could be there for him as well but really hating it was a big part of it. Sadly I don't remember everyone who told me to just do it but I remember itfcjoe and Bluefish rather bluntly telling me to get on with it or shut up . Thank you.

I also want to thank No9. If anyone is in contact with him please pass on my thanks. He was very kind to me when I was bitching about my job and frequently sent me opportunities he had come across. To be honest I thought most of them were above my level but that may have been a lack of confidence. He never stopped trying though which I appreciate.

I was a bit too mouthy about my last job on here and I intend to be much more private this time. Thankfully I really rate the company i'm joining and think it will be a good place to work so I shouldn't have anything to bitch about!

Oh and finally, this has been dragging on for about 6-7 weeks now and I think the job is perfect for me so i've been really on edge. Apologies if i've been more of a bellend than usual although in fairness it's probably hard to tell.

Cheers all

Congrats mate, glad you've got something that will hopefully make you solvent and happy. You're one of those that goes through the 'occasional bellend but good guy' filter in my head when reading your posts ;)

Nice one, J2. But you could have spared us the details and let us have some burger flipping joke fun for the afternoon.

Shame on you.

Congratulations young man.

What are the odds on you keeping the job?



I was in regular contact with No9, but I haven't heard from him since the start of the year, and I worry about why.

Out of interest, does your role include setting the odds on Saudi Arabia winning the next World Cup?

In all seriousness, well done mate and hope it goes well.

Poster 'Swailes' said he used to pm him but has gone quiet too.

Lucan used to see him about pre-Covid but dunno about more recently.

Maybe Phil could say if he has logged on lately.

He was replying to PMs while in hospital. Or maybe you told me that.

But likewise, hope he's doing well - one of the better eggs.
