Well, that was SHEEER HELL :x

Why? Well, it was nothing like I posted above. In the above, it says Analyst who just does some dissolution testing.

The advantageous part (NOT ESSENTIAL) was the method development.




When I got there, and sat in the interview, they said it was purely method development. I have no idea on this area at all, and explained that the job description on the advert was misleading.

Damn agencies :x

So, I sat thru the 2 hour interview, answering some of the questions which were PURE chemistry. It was like they were speaking in toungues in front of me, then asking me a question based on it.

For example, just grabbed this off a website:

http://www.organic-chemistry.org/synthe ... dines.shtm

So, they started by saying, for example, this:

So then, a one-pot synthesis of substituted pyridines via a domino cyclization-oxidative aromatization approach is based on the use of a new bifunctional noble metal-solid acid catalyst, Pd/C/K-10 montmorillonite and microwave irradiation. The cyclization readily takes place on the strong solid acid while palladium dehydrogenates the dihydropyridine intermediate.



How would you start to create a method based on that?



And I was just like

WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT (in my head) and struggled through answer.

If I get this, it will be a flaming miracle.



----

So, I start a second job on Monday, so getting home at 9.30 every night, as its 2 jobs a day. Need the money, and as soon as I'm sorted, back to one job I go.

Of course, if I get a decent job.....
