I don’t know why I bother applying for other jobs. I got another rejection email saying ‘we saw other candidates that closely matched our profile’
I’m thinking “Excuse me, what? You called me prior to interview and asked me questions THEN invited me along, and after all that you then decide I’m not suitable?” Why waste my time?
Its got me thinking though. I’ve been working as a cleaner for the past 5 years, same company. Before that I was a SAHM for 8 years. Have I been working too long as a cleaner? Has my time to try something else has passed?
Not to out pressure on myself but in a few years time I will have to be completely self-sufficient as my son is 13 this year. I don’t want to struggle working all hours for peanuts.
We don’t ask for formal qualifications. Just an interest in our industry.
We take digital marketing apprentices, who study towards a qualification while working for us for 18 months. The pay isn’t great to start with but better than NMW.
Could you choose something you are interested in – food, diy, travel or what ever and start a blog. After you’ve produced half a dozen articles, start applying, and use the blog as examples. Has to be worth a go 😊
