I've recently passed level 4 and I'm looking for a way into the industry. I live in Powys so there isn't necessarily the range of work here that there is in other parts of the country. Do people think that employers might forego some need for experience if someone has a level 4? Most jobs list a years experience as a prerequisite. I'm really struggling in the job I'm doing currently. There has been a really aggressive program of cost cutting. I do think management are instructed to pile the workload on their more trusted, or more capable staff, there is a reason why I think it's always me. Anyway I don't like it and I want out. Unfortunately there's little better or more secure in the area and I have a mortgage and bills to pay. In the 6 weeks or so since I got my last level 4 result I have applied to maybe 4 or 5 jobs, had one interview, which I know I performed really badly in. I'm in my 40's and would really like to get into the industry. Any advice would be appreciated.
