Sort of happy but a bit annoyed about this
In 2000 i left school and was sent to a training place called Taurus Skills foundation which i left in 2002. I did my Warehouse NVQ there and when i left there was talk on taking me on but there was two people who didn’t think it was a good idea. Also in them two years i asked to do a computer NVQ and they said i couldn’t do it and they wouldn’t give me a reason either.
I went to the job centre today as I’m still finding it rather difficult to find a radio job, and spoke to someone on new deal. I was expecting an ear full like “You cant to that, think realistically” and all that. Instead i was greeted with a “You’ve come onto new deal… why do you think you haven’t got a job yet?” i told him why and a bit of what i did in the past and doing now and said “I know a course that can help”. Now the thing I’m not happy about is that apparently i need to go on a “Course to help build my confidence”.
I don’t need that, my career involves me nattering about a bunch of stuff in front of a potently high audience and I’m confident about doing that. The second, is that the courses I’ll be on are going to be at where i used to train. The difference is though is that they have changed their name and that they do more courses so it would be good to see who’s still there. Apparently they will put me on placement and if the people like me where i go they will take me on.
I’m not sure on whether that will happen because i don’t have much faith in that system, i hope it does!
