Fingers crossed you’ll have a job by this time tomorrow @TAB even if it’s not your ‘favourite’ site. I remember being really cross with a previous employer because they stuffed up the sep cert with the wrong reason stated (no I did NOT resign, rather they did not continue the contract & despite being in each other’s line of vision I’d had to approach the boss late in the day with the coming weeks client appointments booked into my electronic diary by his 2IC but not told to whether to turn up or not the next day). @Zoe7 To add insult to injury another staff member had a birthday so he decided to pretend it was also my farewell afternoon tea. Spineless, disingenuous ..... Anyway back to you- sorry you’re not physically well atm @TAB - working may therefore be tricky although it sounds like it’s a necessary evil.. Any more thoughts about a cert iv or moving to a city?

hi gang @Hamsolo01 how are you travelling today, taking it easy?
@TAB your situation sounds so tough, sitting with you. I've been unemployed for 7 years & it's a hard hole to dig myself out of, just one step at a time.
@Sam3 don't beat yourself up too much - let those ruminations go! You're a good mum.
@Shaz51 hi how are you today?
@Zoe7 yes so glad my kitty cat is picking up, he's my best buddy

hi @BryanaCamp yeah, research has been around for years that even after 2 weeks off work it's a slippery slope .. anyway .. had some big gains yest, got separation cert from work, was avoiding asking cos too embarrassed, but bills owing and no work is reality anyway, as someone on tv said the other day, 'good' unemployment figures still leave at least 600,000 people behind ... ok only times not on dole were 3years, 3 years and 4years(permanent jobs) ok and 4 years when had lots of casual work so out of 38 year work life, was either studying or un/semi employed for .. 20 years .. wow.. didnt realise

hi @Hamsolo01 perhaps Tafe is an option for you? ok what about if you applied for 1 'real' job this week and 5 or so 'crappy' ones like nightfill or whatever. Would get you out of the house and help to get socialised. Just a thought. and if you dont like it, just walk, and no worse off. might be lots better off though..

yeah volunteering can be motivating, well at bare minimum gets you out of house and get to meet new people. I volunteered at a hospital before went off to mines. was in pay office then medical records. should have got a job out of it, was just so easy and boring. nice people though and guess I got to see more things even if mines got me nowhere in the end.
yeah am ok. Had an hours walk already, check my posts in tabalugas ? anyway things more positive than yesterday, got separation cert for centrelink from work and registered for work somewhere else. its given me hope and sometimes that's enough @Hamsolo01
