jobhunting

Well this sucks. a couple of days ago i took my CV into an agency wanting to register with them & got told i had a crap CV & no hope of getting into the IT industry unless i went and did some courses. They didn't see the point in registering me there & told me to go away & come back when i had some typing and computer qualifications.

Today i got turned down for a job in a printing room at green flag.
Because i knew too much about computers.

i think i want to die.
i hate this.

*hugs* welcome to the normal catch 22 situation. I'm stuck in an IT job at the moment and I can't find a different one - been here for four years now and it's got toe the point where I can do this job in my sleep - but can't find a new one *sigh* life bites.

*hugs* hope it all goes better in the future - and don't let the bastards get to you too much!

*hugs* Aw bloody hell that's not very nice. God I hate job hunting too. Don't let them discourage you though. You'll get there in the end.

*hugs* once more..

Courses
It's just a sugestion, but why dont you try doing a course. We are not talking MCSE here, just a short one at nightschool or somthing, just a basic networking course - worked for me as you know. They are not to expensive and you can probably get a discount for being on benefits. apply now and you could start in sept.

Yeah ... I've got a new tactic that I'm going to try for getting a job ... blatant and outrageous lying .... honesty has gotten me nothing so far .. or as you said told I was overqualified .... and regardless of if I greed with them or not, if I didn't want the job I wouldn't have applied for it right ?? job hunting is like so many other things .. Incredibly Counter Intuitive !!!!
