CASE STUDY

"Like lots of people I was made redundant recently, it was a real shock, especially because it was so unexpected. I thought I was in a secure job for life. I averaged about thirty job applications a day, but despite the fact I have got excellent references and good computer skills, job hunting just became really depressing.
