Since I work as a freelance translator, I occasionally send my CV to various translation agencies. A little more than a month ago I sent my CV with a cover letter to a translation agency which was looking for more translators of personal documents. I used to work on a similar position for nearly two years, so I applied. They responded with a letter containing their working conditions and a form for me to fill out, which I did. It was on December 19, and they just informed me that they are actually hiring me.

I'm a bit surprised, frankly - agencies usually ask translators to do a sample translation or two. Of course, they might have contacted the agency I worked for (I mentioned it both in my CV and the cover letter) and get all the information about my translation abilities they needed from them, but still.

Not that I mind, of course - more work, more money. I'm just a bit surprised :)

Wow that was a long time to be silent about it before getting in touch with you! :O

I mean congratulations, that's great but they were kinda quiet about that.

Yay! Good for you! One of my friends is a Spanish/English interpreter in Panama, and she's having a horrible time finding work :(

Athena
Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don't care, I'm still free
You can't take the sky from me
Take me out to the black
Tell them I ain't comin' back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can't take the sky from me
There's no place I can be
Since I found Serenity
But you can't take the sky from me...
