I am in the process of applying for a job as a TA. Since graduating with a 2:2 theology degree in 1998 I have done mainly voluntary work. I have loads of experience working with children in all kinds of settings from pre-school to key stage 1 and 2 BUT I have no real belief in my ability to get a paying job. I know that on paper I come across well and find it quite easy to write down my skills, experience and achievements but when it comes to interviews my brain goes all fuzzy and I find it incredibly difficult to present myself well. It doen't help that the job I have applied for is at my children's school. I am already dreading (where I already volunteer in different capacities) having to face teachers etc if I don't get the job... all this worrying and I don't even know if I've got an interview yet!
