The Job Search Continues...

Here are the jobs I've applied for in the past 10 days:
  • Admin Clerk
  • Secretary
  • Graduate Development Programme
  • Careers Advisor
  • Business Skills Advisor
  • Office Administrator
  • HR Assistant
  • Receptionist
  • Assistant Manager

N.B I am qualified to do all of these jobs and I meet all of the requirements to apply.
Here are the applications I've had responses from:

No, it's not a typo. I have not had a single response. I must be doing something wrong.

I'm sending my CV to three people whose opinions I respect to cast any eye over it and give me their initial impressions, so will keep you posted on their advice. One is my former line manager, one is our former call centre manager, and the other is the CEO of a successful local business, so if they can't point me in the right direction, I don't know who can.

Ironically, this blog is the most successful and productive thing I've done in the past fortnight.

  1. Have had a jolly good chuckle reading . I think you may be our next Bridgit Jones/Carrie Bradshaw. You are the most glamorous unworking girl I know. Keep writing.......I want to read more. JY

  2. Join the navy... they pay well, you won't have to travel far, and they love people who speak different languages (and they pay extra for them!).
    Either that, or quit dripping!

  3. Thanks for the feedback, and the Navy suggestion. Do you have to do some kind of physical training though?!

    Apologies if you don't like the dripping, it's frustrating being out of work and feeling pretty helpless about it. I suggest you don't read the next post, as the drip quotient is going to be off the scale...
