You are not the only ones.
I work in Admin and unfortunately was made redundant from my job in March. For the first time ever, I have found it difficult to get a job. It's taken me two months to get another job but that's not bad going compared to others who were made redundant with me.
It has nothing to do with our nationalities, more to do with age. I took my DOB off my CV and I'm only 38!
