Another 19 jobs available that I won't get

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by supply slave, Mar 30, 2012.

  1. So there are another 19 jobs available in my area and specialism that I (more than likely) won't get.I think there must be something wrong with my personality as I always think THIS COULD BE THE ONE. And then am disappointed when I hear jack s!!t.Medication please!

    Well, there are two big reasons why you might not get these jobs. Or one, at least - don't be greedy.
    1) You don't apply
    2) You tell yourself that you won't get them.
    I am just NOT going to have you feeling so down about your chances. You should instead be thinking that you are EXTREMELY LUCKY that there are so many jobs in your subject and area.
    Not many other posters can say the same, you lucky old thing you!
    *rant over*

    I'm going to reiterate what Theo has said "Be greatful there are jobs to apply for!" Not a single job for past 3 weeks in my LA (sorry there was 1 for Maths specialist at Sec. which I could have applied for had it been Primary but. . )
    Next positive attitude. Well you certainly can't get a job you don't apply for so get writing. I seem to remember you did about 3 one eveing a while back so you've obviously got lots to use for cutting and pasting to the job specifics of each school. So what are you waiting for? Get researching!
    Best of luck with them!
  4. Before anyone will believe that they can hire you, you have to believe in yourself.

  5. The odds of getting something look pretty good to me!
    Pick at least your favourite 5, or even 10, and really sell yourself. When you've done those go for the other 10 or so. You've probably got a couple of weeks to put in the preparation and just think..... you could be posting your own "I got the job" message next month.
  6. I do understand, believe me but its the case of looking at the school and doing your best-there was a point one time, when we didn't even know what a pers. spec was!! So with experience and adjustment you will do it...eventually-only a matter of time-Re look over your last application and follow Theos advice AGAIN-keep reviewing and so on-I do painting and I am NEVER happy with my last work-I have to do it better...so the same as this...ok yes try to ask the schools for feedback-there may be a clue there-together all of us will do it-have a break today then get back to it....
