Yes--- my posting 'Pleasant...for a change' is definitely NOT a flash in the pan ! Again, those guys in the HR department of Swinburne University certainly walk the walk and talk the talk !!
I was told that a letter would be sent at the end of the week - which could be Friday right up to Sunday ! But here's the development in chronological order.
8th, June .....I made the call to them
9th. June .....my student's sister called her to inform her of the coming offer letter
10th June.....my student received a call from the department informing her that the offer letter would be e-mailed to her
10th June ....Within minutes of that , my student informed me that she had received the offer letter
So, am I exaggerating when within two days, everything was settled !I just have to highlight this to show that it is possible !
All I can say is, kudos to the staff of this department. My encounter with them has been a breath of fresh air !!
