Im so tired of looking for work. I look but I dont really apply these days. All the ads state they want years of exp., usually 3 or 5. I have none really. Just 6 months of work experience. Im looking for an accounts payable position. I dont know what i ultimately want to do for a career. Ill just settle for that now cos I did a course on it. I studied accounting too a bit at uni.
Theres no job out there for me where theyre willing to train someone up, and if there was one, i bet thousands would apply. I doubt out of thousands that apply I'd be the one theyd pick.
I wanted to get in the finance industry a few years back, but realised there wasnt much chance due to the nature of the job and its requirements and experience needed. The way into banks is to go through their graduate recruitment process but I wasnt good enough on that.
I dont know how the hell Im going to get a job. I probably could get a cleaning job, but I dont want that. That doesnt lead anywhere.
Any people in a similar situation?
Yeah, I can related. I am fed up looking for a job. I do online searches and look through the newspapers but I don't find anything for me. Or if i do, it either says you have to have experience, own your own transport, be an ougoing person and can work as part of a team etc.
I then stop job searching for a while because I know there isn't any jobs around and it gets boring. I would like a cleaning job, looks easy to do lol but all the cleaning jobs i've seen, you have to own your own transport. And I don't have a car. *sigh* and I'm too scared to learn to drive! It does say Previous experience prefered but not nessercary as full training can be given, which is good but it's the transport thing that really holds me back.
Ohhh and uhm...you know when you get those job advertisement, saying if you are interested in the job, contact bluh bluh bluh...I hate using phones!! I sometimes apply for the jobs where they want you to reply by email only just to avoid using phones.
I really need to get this phone fear and get driving lessons sorted. Then I'd probably be in a job by now. grrrrr!!!
