As a “mature” student and having worked for many years in a large organisation, getting a summer job was going to be a piece of cake. Just about every suitable job I’ve seen advertised offers the lowest hourly rate possible while many of them ask for qualifications in this, that or the next thing.
Is it that I don’t have enough experience? Not according to the info on my CV. Could it be that I have too much experience? Possibly, but since we’re only talking about temporary jobs for a few weeks it would seem unlikely that this would be an issue.
Each day I open my inbox with hope, perhaps today will be the day.
