Right, I'm not normally one to come on forums and have a moan but I've had it. I took redundancy in 2013 to become a stay at home dad and in January this year started to look for work again. I've got a pretty impressive CV (if I do say so myself) and am lucky enough to have had DBS so my PD (which I've had since I was 22) doesn't stop me from working. However since January I've had 13 interviews and every one has been a no, and I've disclosed my condition at or before every interview.
My feedback has been 99% positive, with one exception being I lacked a bit of knowledge around a particular area of work I'd be doing, but by and large I haven't had any negative feedback, or tips to improve on. I can get quite dyskinetic at interview but always give full answers and don't try and brush off any questions.
Should I start thinking the worst of employers?
Am I naive i thinking that employers won't take my condition into account (though they would never admit to it)?
Is 13 interviews and 13 no's in six months standard in this current climate, or should I start being suspicious?
Has anyone else experienced similar problems?
I want (and need!) to work so much, and given that I had surgery to prolong my abililty to work and provide for my family it's crushing to hear no after no and each time wondering was it my PD?
Sorry, rant over!
