As some of you are aware, I have spent the past year whirling around trying to juggle working FT, being a mum and making 400 mile round trips to care for my mum who had inoperable lung cancer.

A few weeks ago my grandad passed away, and then so did my mother. Everything has just gone to shit.

One thing I have done that is quite positive and "for me", id applied for a new job, it is a step up the career ladder and a much better position than I am in now. I started working on my application a few weeks ago when it was first released and before my mums condition began deteriorating. I have finished it this week and submitted it today. It closes on Monday.

I know in the midst of everything that is going on its a bit odd to be applying for new jobs, but these opportunities dont come along very often (and this only really happened by fluke) and so I would kick myself if I didn't, but most of all, after this last year I just feel like I want a fresh start.

So please please please could I ask for some good vibes.

Good luck! I'm sorry you've had such a horrible time recently. I don't think it's a strange thing to do, I think it's brilliant that you've even managed to put an application together.

I hope you get good news next week.

Well I didn't get shortlisted.

I know it sounds ridiculous but I was just hoping for one bit of good news, I have accomplished everything that I needed to that stopped me getting shortlisted last time, I have done and been through so much to put myself in a better position, worked so hard even whilst trying to juggle my mum being ill, and put together an excellent application (had it proofread by people already in senior positions in the field) while my mum was dying/had died (the timing of the job ad) to get somewhere and what for?

I'm so sorry you are disappointed, how can you not be? But you have achieved something; you've updated your cv, worked on a great application, had it checked and approved by people who know. These are important facts.

It's so hard to not take these rejections personally but it isn't personal, it's business. Maybe they already had a preferred candidate or others applied with the exact things they were looking for.

Have a short break and then get back on the horse. You DM and DGF will be so proud of you. flowers cake
