That's it really. At nearing 40 I am finally about to enter the job market. I left college had a baby, had another then spent years caring for him (disabled) When I finally thought about going to work I had 2 more children. I have spent the last 3 years preparing to get into Uni to study Midwifery (unsuccessful 1st try) I really need to work but God it is so scary. I've applied for a few jobs but I'm not sure what I want to do or even what I can do. Any hand holding, inspirational speeches are more than welcome
Are you applying again to study midwifery? Did you just not get in last time because of the demand for places? If I've read your OP correctly, you're looking for a job because you need a job, but have spent 3 years working towards studying midwifery.
I'd try again for that if I were you - go for a career over a job
Yes not enough places so will definitely be applying again for midwifery. DD4 is now 4 so from next year I have to jobseek. I have put all my efforts into midwifery but someone needs to pay the bills. I would leave pretty much any job if I got into uni. I have applied for 3 jobs already but they all ask work history and I don't have any! I feel unqualified for even shelf stacking in asda, didn't stop me applying though.
