I have just discovered I have been offered a job interview (yay). However I am starting to get to the point where I want to give up. I qualified in the summer but have yet to start my NQT year, this interview will be my fifth. On the one hand I know in the long run 5 isn't that many but I just get the feeling that I will never be the one actually offered the job. But it's frustrating when you keep hearing about people getting the first job they apply for. Around my way there are over 100 people applying for each post and although I can write a good application I'm sure they must be dissapointed when they see me in person as I don't 'shine'! I am really fed up of the job hunt now and the endless hours filling out application forms. I especially hate when you arrive at an interview and can already tell which person will be getting the job before you even start. My interview performance has improved with all this practice but I still get terribly nervous at interview and I know I don't talk for long enough. I would just like to be given the chance to start my NQT year and prove myself. What can I do to make myself the bride? Sorry for the whinge but I am losing hope!
