    Default Finally got a job after two plus years

    As some of you know I have a back problem which because of failed surgery means that I havent worked since October 2006 until today.
    I have landed myself a job which involves loooking after 10 cars for a care agency and the odd bit of handyman duties for there customers as of when needed. The job with the cars is weekly valeting and general vehicle inspection and minor repairs and making sure all servicing is done when needed.
    Its only a smallish amount of hours to start with mainly to see how I manage and if all goes to plan there will be further hours added and eventually becoming full time.
    I am so pleased to get this job as I have had quite a few issues where I did not even get an interview even though I have been more than qualafied for the post but because I am disabled and have a current disability meant I was not good enough.
    I just wanted to share my good news with you all as I am over the moon and maybe my luck is about to change.

    It sure is and when you apply for a job and notify them you are supposed to automaticlay get an interview. I have got someone looking into one post I applied for where I filled in an application form and ticked the disabled box and wrote in what my problem was but all I got was a thanks but no thanks letter back.
