Since qualifying a year ago I haven't managed to secure a job, have only had 7 interviews and 6 weeks of supply work. My bank account and my spirit can not handle this anymore so I have been applying for all the jobs I can. I haven't even managed to secure any office or retail work! Finally I have an interview for a call centre job which is full time and permanant so at least it provides me with money and security which will allow me to move back out of home. I think it's likely that I am commiting career suicide by moving out of education and I doubt i'll ever get back in, especially as I havem't done my NQT year. I was thinking the other day, everyone I know in my generation seems to be having a really tough time, only 1 person has a job in the area they trained in, the rest are either looking for work or working at whatever job they can get their hands on. It's so frustrating to think that those of us who have gained a degree are worse off than those who left school at 16 and went straight into work. I wish all the other jobseekers well. I would still like to get a teaching job but there are none left to apply for now. Good luck!
