Take care at 'Apply'... and enjoy your shoes

Followed through with Seek and - please note - the glitch is not a Seek problem. (Read on for amusement!)
It is a(n ongoing) problem with the host's online form - the server arrangements of the organisation offering the position. Seek helpdesk people were prompt and delightful so they're back in my good books. When you're job hunting before you click the 'Apply' button take note if it's accompanied by a message about taking you to or opening in a new window. This means the secure page will be hosted by some other crowd... in this case it's pageuppeople.com ... On the positive side I've had a lovely phone conversation with the enquiry contact who's also the program manager and the position in a new team under her direction sounds like a great opportunity. We chatted quickly about what I've done and she's emailed me an HR workaround phone number and if all else fails I can simply email her the three documents. I risked a half-joke: Is the system locking me out because I've worked there before? Hahaha. No, not at all, wouldn't do that! Well that's a relief, then.
Next steps: I sent all those draft documents to my poor long-suffering referees who are likely to offer me work out of sheer pity!
And the shoe shop I was in today (beautiful black-patent pumps on sale!) is also advertising for part-time staff - I enquired, but you have to send in your resume - aaaaarrrggghhh.... (I'm going to buy those shoes, for the interview).
