Been far too long since my last post! A lot has happened too! coldest winter for over 100 years, theres was christmas and new year, and I even got myself a new fulltime job! Its great to be finally working proper hours again and earning some decent money.

Over the past 18 months I must have applied for easily 800 jobs, had 3 interviews and finially started my new job on the 3rd of january! So far its all going well, just need to keep up the good work 🙂

So the lesson for anyone struggling to find a job is just to keep at it! Persistance does eventually pay off, and don’t feel downhearted if you dont hear back. out of 800 applications I heard back from about 5% of the jobs in the UK, but about 85% of my applications for jobs in sweden got a very nice letter back apologising that I never got the job, some of them even suggested other companies to try and apply for!
