Been feeling really down for about a week - lacking in motivation and confidence to do job applications, even tho I'm unemployed and on benefits so I need to be doing this, regardless of how I feel.

Haven't heard back from my last interview, which was about a week ago - I realise I didn't get it, but how long does it take to say no? Financial problems are really bad. So tearful today. But must focus.

Keep positive there are so many employers who don't even tell you that you didn't get the job

I am so sorry dear Cindy. I think it's despicable how companies treat employees (and potential employees) nowadays. I've heard it never used to be this way but has been getting progressively worse over the years. It's really dehumanizing. I also felt

Very inadequate, almost completely lacking motivation and confidence. Looking for a job is bloody hard... I really take my hat off to you and hope you get an opportunity soon. You can do this.

I've had weeks and weeks go by without hearing back from a company. Some places never call you back, but the job I have now, they didn't notify me I got it for 6 weeks! So be patient, Cindy! Wishing you the best...

So sorry you are feeling this way, Cindy. Stay strong & it'll come your way. I'm lucky to not have to deal with much job searching, but I know how frustrating it can be. Add on natural downs & you're in for a mess. I'll be thinking of you! xx

So sad to see the incident at Parliament - tragic, whether it's terrorism or something else. I worked in London for many years, and was at work on 7/7, and my manager's son was killed in the attack.

Had to do online Excel and Word skills assessments for interview next week. Word was okay, but despite revising Excel that didn't go well. Sigh. I think I am better at it than the assessment will show

Been invited to interview - 2 posts on offer (1 permanent, 1 year long). Happy just to have been shortlisted, it's some encouragement in itself. Interview in couple of weeks, so time to prepare.
