Nobody wants to give me a job :( by carlpenn

Countless applications sent, no interviews and still no job :(

So fed up. I had to leave my last job through ill health and now it seems that this has become my "Albatross", let's be honest, would you employ someone who had 9 Months off work, through ill health? I cannot see any other reason for such a negative comeback on any applications :(

Tried a Job Agency, but they don't offer me work because I am not "Immediatoly" available - That is to say, they called me at 4pm expecting me to go to work at 5pm for a client, I said I couldn't because I have 2 children and could not arrange Childcare at such short notice, (I even informed them off this at interview stage so why they acted like this I do not kow) since then I have heard nothing off them either - I have rung them and they said (ready for a laugh) I am not being offered any positions as I am not reliable !!! :o

Needed a moan................ :(

I'd use another agency if I were you. I'd make a fuss of it with that agency though. Make a complaint about how you've been treated and lost potential earnings because of it.

Sorry to hear about your situation. Let's hope things pick up for you soon. With it being the holiday season quarter any industry linked to retail will be busier -often wanting temp staff to cover extra work, if that's of any help?
