    Still looking? Do what I was forced to do: self-employment via consulting and contracting. Be warned though, it's hella stressful and you end up working harder and longer hours for less money that you'd be getting at a corporate.

    Yeah that's very true Avatar. I don't always realise that. My brother in law has also been without work for a long time now and it's not easy.

    May you find something soon! I hope you get an awesome job with great pay.

    I have no problem with working harder and longer hours, nor stress. And I was seriously underpaid at my last job, getting much less than I would've at another company, so I won't be making any less! The trouble I have is mostly that I'm not good at networking and marketing, and in my industry there are very, very few self-employed consultants. I genuinely don't know where to start with getting my name out there as a consultant, other than manufacturing some things, but that requires a bit of a capital outlay which I don't have now. I'm investigating this route, though, I'm busy looking at laser cutters as we speak.

    Thanks, man. I'm sure my boat will come in soon. I'm applying left, right and centre, but unfortunately, most job require either 10+ years of XP (I have 6) or 5 years in the built environment, which I also don't have. Soon, though, sooooooon.

    But, my intention wasn't to throw a pity party, just to give you two a teensy bit of perspective to help get you through the day! So go kick ass and take names!

    I might know a company that might be looking for someone. They're in manufacturing and have been around for at least 60 years... A good friend's uncle is the MD of the company.

    Maybe try and contact them? I'll PM the details.

    I'll do that, thanks. I've cold emailed a couple of places, and I am chatting to an energy company that I contacted this way. It's too early to tell if something will come from it, but the door does open this way!
