Hi, sorry, I need some advice and/or help
I've been looking for a summer job so I can come to Wales again in the future and I've just been emailed by two of the places I've sent applications to. One said that they'll make their decisions and then contact the "chosen ones" by phone as soon as possible. The problem is, they get a lot of applications. We have a system for applying to summer jobs in Helsinki so every place gets 500-2000 written applications. I'm pretty sure "as soon as possible" means in "1 or 2 months"... (at least judging by the email I got from the other place that said "on weeks 12-17" (17 is when bootcamp is))
So, I definitely don't want to (and can't) speak Finnish on my phone during bootcamp and I doubt they would understand or be able to speak Welsh. I would leave my phone with my mom but she'll be on Ynys Enlli with barely any electricity, so it wouldn't really help since it would have to be switched off.
Do you think it might be possible for me to leave my phone with someone, to answer and explain why I can't answer, in case I get a call?
It's very unlikely I will. I'm asking just in case I might not get contacted at all, and that could turn out to be the only place that calls people, or I could get contacted before or even after bootcamp. I'll probably send an email to them explaining why I might not be able to answer if getting someone else to answer is too difficult.
What do I do?
(side question because I got curious: what happens to phones on bootcamp? Most things on them are usually in English, so we couldn't use them, right? Do we keep them and trust that no one uses them or do you collect them?)
