Just wanted to say thank you for the great advice you have given on the forum here. Of the six applications I have sent off so far, three of them have secured interviews. May I add, that the three that have secured interviews are also the three latest, with which I included an executive summary! Whilst I haven't managed to secure a job yet, I have been told that making it to interview is an outstanding achievement in itself (beating 200+ applicants in an area where competition is fiercer than fierce). I figure that this is all good experience and that nothing is making me more thick-skinned than being knocked down, picking myself up again and getting on with the next one. So, thank you. The inspirational stories on here are lovely to read and help give me motivation to keep going! My job is out there somewhere. Don't give up people!
