I am currently on a secondary PGCE and have recently started my second placement. I have applied for a number of jobs but haven't managed to get an interview. I have a conviction which dates back to 1997 and I have declared it on all applications. I'm now starting to worry the conviction is preventing me from getting interviews. I was hoping you could offer me some advice how I can at least get my 'foot through the door' to interview. Any advice is much appreciated.
