having been recently made redundant from my job after 2.5yrs I am now on the lookout for a new role.
I think I've probably applied for 70+ jobs and just seem to be getting no where. I have worked in admin for 15yrs but seems I can't even get an interview for a reception position. Of all the jobs I've applied for I've maybe had 10% of companies reply. I've had one interview and they never got back to me (I must've been awful lol) and even then it was more of a casual chat and they didn't seem to ask anything relevant to my skills or the position.
Ive redone my CV and cover letter but am now thinking do I need to pay a professional to go over the cv to tell me where I'm going wrong... I've also registered with some temp agencies and even they say they have nothing.
Its all very disheartening and seems to be a who you know culture (I don't know many people so that won't help me)
sorry to Moan just wanted to vent and let it out.
