In the meantime I am however still applying for other jobs, because I don't want to assume anything with this one. And nor should you take a job without weighing up options, if an offer is made. I don't necessarily want to take the first job I'm offered without checking first that it will definitely suit: people aren't doing you a favour by offering you a job, it's a transaction that has to fit well for both parties. Other things I've applied for include a Marketing and PR internship (I would love one day to work in the press office of a publishing house, or an arts festival, or a theatre company), publishing assistant for lovely looking publishing house, and admin assistant for a theatre production company (in Brighton! I could walk to work!).
Yesterday, I read a really great article from Slate about long-term unemployed people finding work again, and the ways they did that. I especially think working for free is a good one, but also optimising your CV so that online applications get sent on to employers and don't just stop with recruiters (they run CVs through a search engine to determine whether or not to pass them on). I've often thought that if I could just get to interview stage I'd have a great chance of getting a spot - being warm and personable is pretty difficult to pass on in a CV - so making sure your CV gets to a person should be a top priority.
