Finally .... I have employment

After 13 months of unemployment due to redundancy, I have now been offered a job and I will start on Monday 23rd April.

 

This has been extremely stressful and seriously frustrating as I had applied for around 150 jobs, yes I had some interviews which surmounted to 2 or 3 visits for assessments/interviews but unfortunately unsuccessful.

 

The current climate of very high unemployment especially in surrounding areas didn`t help, if it was for jobs that I had no experience for when applying, I didn`t get a look in, for most of the applications there was never a response even after follow up contact from myself.

 

Having looked online for job vacancies totalling 5-6 hours per day, 7 days a week, persistence paid off, I hope I don`t have to go through all this again.

Yeah, I wasn't out of work for long either when my last place went into liquidation. It's such a cruel world that you can be so worried and concerned about not having something you hate so much. :lol: I was worried every day I was unemployed but now I'm back to dreading every day at work. Haha. Such a cruel world.

Great news indeed Faron. :tumbsup: I was out of work for 8 months and it was awful. It's as if you start to panic and try too hard in every interview and then the employer can smell the panic in you. Ugh, hated it! The place I'm at now has an owner that will be retiring and closing the business. Then I'm back to square one looking for another job. Could be six months from now, could be three years from now. But it's going to happen and hopefully he gives us plenty of warning when he decides to retire.

I'm happy for you. I've been blessed in that I've never had to experience something like that. I hope the rest here that are searching will find work soon.
