A quick update on the job situation. I didn’t get the first post, although I was told that I interviewed well so they would consider me for a second post, same job” Family and Youth Worker”. The HR left a message on Friday to say sorry they had missed me they would drop me an e.mail. No e.mail was forth coming so I had to wait all weekend. They rang this morning to tell me that I didn’t get this post either.
Apparently I was told that they were again impressed by my interview ,that my presentation was extremely good, I have a wealth of experience and many transferable skills and should keep looking and applying for jobs on their web site. So I asked why didn’t I get the job? A big pause followed, and the person on the other end tried to think, “Well they just had more experience…”.
I suspect ,and I don’t blame them ,that “more experience” probably means that they were younger and held a driving licence, but I’m just surmising. To have more years of experience would put them in their dotage!
So , back to the drawing board, I have plenty to fill my days but nothing brings in money and hearing on the radio this morning about impending cuts to Tax Credits the future could sound a bit scary.
