Bloody hell Aldi that was quick !!
Thank you for your recent application. Unfortunately on this occasion you have not been successful.
Due to the high volume of applications that we receive, we are unable to provide specific feedback to individual candidates.
We would welcome applications from you in the future, however please note that for the next 6 months we can only accept applications for a different role with a similar or lower level of responsibility.
Stick at it mate, it all seems doom and gloom atm but if you carry on as you are, you will succeed. I had almost 3 years (1980-83) out of work and it almost finished me off, luckily I had the support of my missus and some great friends which got me through it. Just have to try and stay positive and keep going, somewhere out there is a job with your name on it.
I've had a couple more redundancies and trouble finding work since but always managed to find something in the end. There's no doubt job searching when you're in your 50's is harder but your experience and work ethic will be attractive to some employers.
Put our house on the market yesterday.
I'm putting this in this thread rather than the Happy thread because I foresee a lot of swearing and ranting over the coming months as we go through the enviable task of moving house.
But I look forward to the day that I post house moving stuff in the Happy thread.... It only takes about a month/6 weeks in total to move, right?
This house malarkey is a bit stressful, isn't it?
1. Viewed a property - loved it
2. Made an offer on said property
3. Our house listing went live
4. 5 viewings booked in
5. First person to see it has offered 5k under what we need, so I declined and have renegotiated for the extra 5k that we need
6. Dream house has 1 other offer on it - both will be accepted but it's the first to get an offer accepted on their property which will be accepted - RACE!
All of the above has happened since 6pm last night....
