Things are hard enough trying to get a job but this morning we thought we were going to get a break.
The wife had a call from an employment agent saying they had role they would like to put her forward for, great you would think however here comes the sting...
My wife has a fair few certificates for this and that and can earn a lot more than I can out here, however before the agent would put her forward for any jobs she has to prove she can do what she said she can do by showing the certificates. Well we don’t have them with us due the a last minute change before we left the UK, they ended up with all our stuff in storage (still in the UK).
So as it stands it is pointless my wife going for any jobs in her field and it seems the rate for what I do is so low that it would not support us (it did in the UK and we could have bought a house on it too).
I must say neither of us have never been asked to show certificates at a job interview in the UK. So for us I think that maybe it, I can’t see my wife getting the well paid job she can do due to the certificates issue. I think we maybe going back in a few weeks time if things don’t get better.
A tip for anyone coming over, make sure you have certificates and the like to support anything you have on your CV.
