The motivation to write this piece stems from the experiences of many who are, or have been, in similar positions. I am sure most young engineers, technologists and technicians have all gone through this - that period when nothing seems to be going your way. Despite all your efforts to show interest, no job interviews seem to come through. All you get is that dreaded response assuring you that your details are being kept on record and that you will be contacted as soon as suitable positions become available. You have applied for all the available jobs, but you seldom get on the shortlist. Sometimes you do get on the list only to fall out at that last hurdle. It is worse when you think you have what is needed for the job available, but still cannot land that position. You read about the apparent lack of skilled professionals, and it all seems like a farce to you.
