    Sorry it’s been long getting back to you all. First of all thank you. However I find it hard talking on the phone it creates a panic attack, I pass out when I do panic and shake terribly.

    Hi@katd40

    Welcome to the community & thank you for your query.

    I'm sorry to hear that you are not getting any interviews.

    Looking for work and eventually finding a job can be a challenge and usually when we are not getting interviews it could be because our CV's, cover letters or applications are not up to scratch.

    The good thing is that you can do something about it by making sure that they are all of good quality.

    If you can do this yourself or with the support of a family member or friend, then great.

    You can also contact us at Support to work to get support with interview skills any more.

    If you think that we could be beneficial for your progress then you can find more information about us here: https://www.scope.org.uk/support/services/employment/support-work


    I wish you all the best & hope that you will be successful in finding a job.

    Kind Regards
    Pia
