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.
It only take a couple of days to hear from a job interview. Not a week
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...
hope your feeling better soon Cindy... even if your not down I think applying for jobs and filling in applications is soul destroying ... get out in to the hills and let the wind blow the cobwebs away x x
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
Im very sad for your boss. Thats awful. :(
Didn't know you worked in London.. but yeah it's very sad. I hate attacks like that.
So many sad and frightening memories.
Yesterday was attack was awful, it too reminded me of the 7/7 :( . Its ashamed this happened for people to understand the bravery of the emergency services
This is so sad ... I was in town on the day of the Manchester bombings ... I was 10 years old and I've had a fear ever since.. I constantly feel like somethings going to happen when I visit a city or go to town. Those poor people in London :( :(
Also sending you love whilst you have those upsetting memories X
Hi cindy arable farm growing wheat and veg always busy but love it
Good for you for appreciating the beauty of it! For me, snow has outlived its beauty in mid-March. Now it's unwelcome! Give me some sunshine!
So you live in Scotland then Cindy ... I used to live up that way for 11 years in Balfron near Loch Lomond .. I miss it terribly.. enjoy the snow enjoy the views x x
Small world I live in Scotland
Yes, good luck Cindy!
Fingers crossed for you! Hows M doing?
Hope you get good news
Wishing you all the luck and my fingers are crossed for you :)
But I need to remember this is only one element in selection process - and be prepared to speak to this next week. Need to spend some time on the rest of the interview prep. And off to the JobCentre this afternoon to sign on. I was supposed to go
yesterday but spoke to them first thing this morning and they are letting me come in today. Between that screw up and the Excel disappointment, wonder if I'm sabotaging myself....
Definitely talk to them and tell them how you feel about the excel test. Tests are artificial of course, and definitely aren't always representative of ability! Hope you feel better, the job isn't everything, you have plenty of opportunities out ther
We're rooting for you.
I hate tests like that and I doubt if they really give a good impression about the person taking them. Unfortunately you had to do this. I'm sure you are great with the interview. I'm thinking of you
Yep, we're rooting for you, Cindy! That was only part of the process. Don't get down on yourself. xx
Thank God for that, as I have to do an online IT skills test the week before the interview. Time to refresh Excel (ugh!). And of course, keep applying for jobs....
That's so good, Cindy. I admire your courage!
That's great! Good luck, Cindy!
YAY. You deserved some God news
Good news* happy for you. I'm sure you will do great. Good luck with your preparations!
Wonderful news, Cindy! I'm sure you'll do great. You definitely deserve this opportunity. Hope good news keeps flowing your way! xx
that is hopeful news. May you be well no matter how this plays out.
That's great news :) good luck Cindy! Xx
:( I'm sorry to hear that. I know there's a job for you. It is tough but you are going to manage!! Wish I could help you in some way :(
Aw, really sorry to hear that. Dont let it get you down too much, give yourself praise that you are still trying and applying:). Its so difficult to get a job anywhere, but keep going you can do it! *sending you big hugs & love* <3
Ah Cindy. Be strong.
So sorry to hear that, Cindy. Don't give up. You're so strong. I know the perfect fit is out there for you! <3
I'm sorry, Cindy. You'll find the right position for you!
Hi Cindy , after a long period off work with PTSD i found it hard getting back into the jobs market , but I did and got offered several jobs from engineering to a position back in antarctica but in the end i chose self employment which fits better
for me and my MH needs , have you considered self employment ? x x x
benefits, but no good news ...Just tried to figure out how much money I have, for everything, and it is f*****g scary. Given that I've been feeling pretty down anyway, it's not great.
Hang in there :(
Don't let the stress compound things...I hope it works out for you ok, Cindy! Big hugs!
They still haven't started your benefits? Hope they can get it done very soon, and you get a nice back-payment! <3
You don't deserve this **** cause you've worked a long time. Makes me sad that they take soo long to pay your benefits. As if you ask for them voluntary :( I hope there's good news soon!!!
Hope you get those benefits soon. I got mine surprisingly fast & was shocked at the back payment with what little work experience I have. Keeping my fingers crossed for you. *big hugs*
Hope its all worked out < i came off benefits to try and start a job which went well until i got ill again , then the rules had changed and now i cant claim anything but are giving self employment ago x x
Sounds lovely!! How is M doing since surgery?
Sounds like a perfect day as long as you get to stay inside!
Chocolate, and cat. Sounds like a good day. X
=( Aw, Cindy, I wish I could make things better for you. Remember this is just a small time in the grand scheme of things. It'll get better. Thinking of you. <3 xx
Big hugs Cindy <3 take care x
I agree with what Manda said. X
Big hugs dear Cindy. I hope things will be better for you soon. Take care x
sharing my virtual bamboo shoots with you. hoping you're feeling better, love.
