Back in the saddle again

I uploaded my CV on a few more websites, in for a penny in for a pound as they say! I have applied for 4 jobs, 2 healthcare assistant and 2 learning support assistant.

By late afternoon I was called by a nursing agency inviting me for an interview for a healthcare assistant role.

My first thought was “what am I going to wear!”

Into the ether

With my CV updated and revamped it’s now time to put it out there for all to see. An internet search informs me that there are a huge amount of job sites inviting me to upload my CV and get myself a job. I decided on 3 for now, the registration and upload of CV was so easy and straight forward. Now all I have to do is wait for job vacancies to be emailed to me and prospective employers to contact when they realize they can’t do without me!

12 hours later I get a call from a recruiter wanting more information about the roles I’m looking for and my current status

10 hours after that another recruiter asking the same thing.

Proof I think that these job sites are well worth signing up for.

Blowing the dust off the CV

It’s not easy updating a CV when you haven’t done any work for the last 6 years. But it did give me the opportunity to remember that before my illness I was somebody, I was worthwhile and achieved a hell of a lot.

In the deepest despair of being ill with CFS I felt like my life was over, I had nothing to live for because I simply didn’t have the energy and didn’t feel well enough to live. Reading and editing my CV helped me to evaluate my skills and experience and boost my confidence and resolve.
