So.... yeh... I need a job :(

Post  kr15 on Wed May 26, 2010 4:50 am

Most of you know I was helping run a design agency with a mate, with the idea being I'd become a partner once we got going.

Well it hasn't happened and I can no longer manage on the tiny amount of jobs we are bringing in. So I'm having to give up self employment and get a job doing anything.

Any ideas? Sad Never been in this position before!

Aw noooo
So sorry to hear that hun, its a really tough position to be in when things dont work out - Greg was the same, same employed with his own buisiness then it all went pete tong!
I dont know your situation but it might help to put your cv across to recruitment agencies in your area and point out what your skills are for relevant positions you want to consider. Greg was embarresed by doing this (dont know why) but he made an appt with the jobcenter to see a careers advisor, they are quite helpful and its how he got his job he is in now.
Goodluck babe i hope something comes up for you soon xx

Got an interview for a factory operator job tomorrow.

Only issue is it's an hours drive away and is minimum wage. Can I afford to be picky?

Oooh thats rubbish Sad

Can you afford to be picky? Wull was unemployed last year for over 9 months, and it was tough, but we managed. We were lucky enough that all our bills, rent, phone bills, credit card repayments etc were all covered out of my wage. Plus we had enough to pay for food shopping, plus fuel for the car and cigs for Wull, with about £1-200 left over for anything else we needed. We got to January this year before I went a bit mad and made him take any job, no matter how crap the wage was so we could pay for the wedding.

If Steves wage can pay all the bills you need to pay, then I wouldnt take a minimum wage job, hold off til you find something better paid and in your line of work.

You could always get some care work either in a hospital or care home until you found something more suitable? Mind you, I think Tesco pays more that the NHS!!! LOL!!

I would also send my CV and some images of stuff you had done to other local ad agencies and see if they have anything??

Good luck in your search!

Hey hon, have you looked on freelancers.net? often jobs posted there that you could do in the evenings etc too

Sorry we haven't been able to point anyone to you - tbh the early sun this year has meant that everything's dead; not looking forward to the next couple of months!

Good luck xx

Oh no, are you struggling too?

To be honest I was also having problems with my work partner, which is a long long story. But I'll still hopefully be trying to freelance. Thanks for the link hun, I will def check it out Smile

Steve wants me to go to the interview (for the practice) but doesn't want me to take the job if I get it. It would work out at about £100 a week coming in which Steve can earn in a morning. Lol. So theres no real point.

Awww hun sorry to hear things haven't worked out there for you... maybe try again one day x

As for the job front, get yourself to as many interviews as possible for the experience, the more practiced you are, the more confident you will get and when the right job comes along you will be ready!

I wouldn't plump for the first job that comes along, NMW plus an hours driving will probably cancel themselves out with the price of petrol!!!

Good Luck! x
