I immediately applied for the UCS job, and had to do a test which involved giving my responses to real user support questions. But after a few weeks I hadn't heard anything.
I wrote another email just checking in and Gaye Harvey, who ran all user support (for staff not just students) replied and said they'd decided to postpone the hiring until 1995.
Then about an hour later, she emailed me again and said that, seeing as I was obviously still interested, would I be willing to come on board immediately and they'd finish the rest of the hiring in 1995.
Weeks later Gaye told me that I was "the only non-CS student that applied for the job and it showed".
