I registered with a few employment agencies a long time ago, a couple via the internet, today I got an email from one of less useful ones letting me know that my account had been closed cos I hadn't visited for a year. This is what they put: Thanks for using the site, and we hope to see you back on at some point in the future.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p> <o:p>(I'm still looking for work) </o:p> <o:p>Thanks for wishing me back to unemployment, when I do get a job, how kind! PML</o:p>

The idiocy of some of these places amazes me. Its like having "Please call again" on the door of an undertakers.

Yeah I went through one once. I work on aeroplanes and they offered me a job as a train guard.

Wills, that wasn't my reply to them, that was my comment in here lol I ignored their email, just like they ignored my criteria and kept sending me details of jobs that weren't suitable. I have no restraint, on Tuesday I had a hissy fit in the job centre. I'd just spent 20 mins in a meeting listening to an advisor telling me how they are there to help me find a job etc yada yada and how, if I have any issues, I can discuss any help I need with my personal advisor after this meeting. When I saw my personal advisor, to ask about funding to pay for the exam at the end of a free course, I didn't get chance to even finish my sentence when she interrupted me saying 'I don't do this as my regular job so I can't help you' I wish I could control my temper, I was so angry I stormed out when what I should have done is insisted on seeing the manager. For 2 yrs now I've been met with one obstruction after another when I've tried to find work or any help to get a job. At the moment, as some may already know, I have an appeal in for a grant to pay for new glasses. I'm struggling at moment with the glasses I have and if I have to read a lot of text for a lengthy period I start getting headache and eye ache. If my appeal is NOT granted then I will be forced to sign off sick as not only won't I be able to look for jobs I won't be able to do one if I got one, not to mention the damage it will cause my eyesight. On a previous occasion I broke my glasses and couldn't afford the £15 for repair, I was told by the social that I wouldn't be getting the money from them as they don't pay for such things. My mum helped me out that time. I have retrained, to be able to carry on working, because I couldn't continue doing manual work. I am trying to find a job but I am limited to what I do because of my physical problem yet when I ask for genuine help I am either refused or don't qualify. Then I'm put on stupid, mind-numbingly boring, courses to learn how to fill in an application form and create a C V. Taking the pi$$ or what?!! During my time with the job centre they have given me incorrect information, causing me to have to decline a job offer because I'd have been £17 worse off if I took it, and sent me to a government run recruitment agency only to be told that they don't deal with the job centre anymore. When I told an advisor at the job centre they hadn't a clue what I was on about. And these people are telling ME how to get a job?? I'm amazed they secured their own job! Restraint, what's that? lol
