No Job For Garry

In the past 10 days or so I have been actively looking for a job via the internet, walking round the area and other means and after 200 job applications so far I am yet to hear from a single company!

I have tried pretty much every industry don’t care what the job is as long as it allows me to support my family.

What happened to the days when you could walk into a company and charm the manager into giving you a chance?

The internet is a great thing but boy does it make job hunting hard with hundreds of people going for one job!

how can you resist this face?

how can you resist this face?


I have worked in retail, sales and been a teaching assistant in a school, as well as a provident agent but the less said about that the better!

I make a great cup of tea and can talk the hind legs of a donkey if it means a potential sale or simply networking opportunities. Not to mention how much my great sense of humour can liven up the office and Christmas parties without the moose dad dancing is something no company should be missing out on!

So my friends, I need a job! preferably close to Woodford so I can still be home for Brandon after school – 10am to 3pm would be perfect but I am prepared to drag my ass out the flat for a full time job as well!

I don’t care what it is as long as it pays more than benefits and allows me to pay the bills, feed and buy clothes for the kids and still have something left over to paint the town red now and again!

If any TV executives are out there I would make a great presenter! or can even try my hand at acting for the right role 😀

Come on folks help find the moose a job or at the very least an interview where I can do the rest……

  1. Wish I could help you sweetie, but I know less than nothing about the job market on your side of the pond. I know it’s pretty shitty here right now and I am incredibly thankful that I have the job I do. Chin up!


  2. Is the use of LinkedIn (professional networking) very common in the UK? It is here and I’ve been told it is an essential tool for job hunting, networking and career development. I can send you a free e-book about how to use it if you are interested.


  3. I’m pretty good at application forms and CVs and stuff – you just need a foot in the door. Give me a shout if I can help. try spreading yourself less thinly and taking a bit more time on the applications – 200 is an awful lot – did you really give them all your full attention?
