As many of you on here know, I'm looking for a job at the moment. I'm applying for between 2 & 6 a day, am signed up for Monster, Reed, Universal Jobmatch, NHS & the county & district council websites, plus I have dozens of the job pages for local & national businesses websites such as the UEA, Research Park, various retail & supermarkets. I'm applying for a diverse range of jobs & many of them have 'experienced' or 'proven record in.....' & similar in their criteria, but I've been applying for them anyway, although I'm not sure if it's worth me bothering. My CV is a pitiful thing, most of my life I've been a housewife/parent or a student, & I know my nervousness around new people & environments makes me a poor interviewee. Not sure what advice I'm looking for, I'm just frustrated as so far I've only secured 3 interviews since June & I'm beginning to lose heart. Most employers don't respond, which is fair enough as I know jobs are sought after & a lot of people are applying, but I know that I have a lot to offer & where I lack in experience I make up for in honesty, keenness to learn & transferable skills.
