Some good luck for a change I was offered a job today which I have accepted extremely please obviously, my advice to anyone struggling write to local employers not national ones, some of it is pot luck I had written to about
80 employers and one was having an existing employee leave in the next 2 weeks so they wanted someone in quick and didnt bother advertising best of all its 15 minutes walk away
*Finished my last temp contract with a big public sector employer over a year ago I was convicted of "that crime" 4 years ago
*Made a new CV applied for well over 600 jobs only had roughly 6 interviews over 10 months
*Asked Jobcentre to send me for training at a local training centre to boost my CV, only basic stuff such as RSA/OCR, SAGE things like that
*Was referred to the work programme and had a brilliant CV done by them I have 5 interviews over the last month alone.
*Work programme also let me write to employers with a covering letter and CV so I had no postage to pay or print costs.
* Was called this morning for an interview and offered the job there and then, they never even asked about
convictions only about
health issues which I explained about
my depression, stated it didnt affect my attendance which they appreciated me being honest about
