    At last! 13th Sep 17 at 6:07 PM
    After months of frustration, applying, hunting and 8 interviews I have finally been offered a job!
    I wanted to share this because I felt really down at times. I felt written off for various reasons, started doubting my ability and thought I might have been being too ambitious and unrealistic and even that I was letting my family down, but in the end it worked out well.
    To anyone who is struggling, don't give up. It might take time but you will get there eventually!

    Congrats, hope it is everything that you want.

    I wouldn't say anyone was struggling who had the ability to turn down interviews so give yourself more credit.

    Well done firefly

    I think sometimes that you miss things by a smidge, you might be second choice, but you never really know how close you were.

    Hope it turns out well for you.

    Thank you both. Yes, its a confidence thing as much as anything. For anyone else struggling, try to focus on your strengths and I suppose its true, being selected for an interview is an achievement even if you don't land the job.
