If my current search for employment continues at this failure rate, I may get to watch the tournament uninterrupted for the first time since 2006.
Keep trying Andrew. When my work was known to finish in 2006, it took me about 6 months from when I started searching until I got an offer, resulting in a break in employment of around 4 months in between but the change was worth it as it is next to the seaside so the quality of life is much better and everything turned out for the better. It also happened that my brother and his family were visiting from the States so I had more time seeing them which was a bonus.
What type of work are you looking for ? Have you tried distributing your CVs to many agencies ? Keep trying and good luck Andrew.
