Hi I posted here not long ago about never getting perm jobs. The job at that time went to the deputy heads daughter but I didn't apply due to illness. I managed to get an extra year in that village school which was lovely but I'm now without a job after a failed interview. I interviewed on Friday and heard back today. I am m6 with lots of experience. The job went to a student known to the school through our office staff. So here I am, 39, newly separated and no job and utterly down. It seems I always get two rolling temp contracts then the school drop me. I work hard and try my best but I just don't seem to equal a perm job. I am very quiet and shortish(5'3) and mousy ..maybe not that noticeable or memorable or intersting? My head said I don't sell myself professionally and I need to be a member of the team (my school is 1 form so I thought I knew everyone well now) instead of always using my school time to work as that's when photocopiers are free. I just feel like I'm doomed in any job because I'm a bit of a mouse. I dunno how else to explain it. Any advice? thanks for reading.
