... Because you never know what's round the corner

Hello guys and dolls! Today I've got some advice for anyone who's job hunting or struggling to get anywhere... be that in work or life in general! (Beware - I babble a lot in this post!)
I don't think I've mentioned this before, but for almost a year now I've been trying to get a job. It's very difficult for everyone at the moment given our economic climate, even the most qualified of people are struggling to find work.

So I'm sure a lot of you will be in the same boat as me and know how depressing and tough it is when you're applying for a load of jobs and no one even bothers to get back to you with a response.

About a week ago the whole situation suddenly got to me and my confidence completely disappeared. I was really down about everything and had pretty much given up hope of ever getting a job.

Because I wasn't getting any repsonse from any of the arrogant people at the companies I'd applied for, I decided to start chasing people up so I sent e-mails to them asking if they could tell me when I would get a response from them.

This was a very good idea and I recommend that EVERYONE does it. Even go into the shop or wherever you've applied at and tell them that you want to know why no one's got back to you. This will show them that you're serious about the job, as well as (hopefully) getting you a very well deserved response!

Not everyone who I contacted has replied to my e- mails, which I find incredibly rude and completely puts me off ever wanting to work for them, however I got a reply from one company and they wrote back offering me my first ever job interview!!

I was incredibly nervous but the interview was really layed back and I didn't have to do much talking at all. I was offered the job which I couldn't believe and still think I'm in shock!
So I FINALLY have a job and things are looking up. The whole point of this post and what I'm trying to say is NEVER GIVE UP HOPE. A week ago I was so depressed and had totally lost all confidence, now a few days later my life has completely changed and everything is GOOD!

Never give up hope or loose faith. Keep trying beacuse you never know what's round the corner and your time for good things to happen WILL come.

Lots of love... Hannah xxx
