I moved here from the UK in Nov 2007 to follow my husband's career, and after having my 2nd boy in February this year, I am having a nightmare trying to find work.
I'm so fed up with it, I don't know what to do. I was a forensic scientist in the UK, and I also have an engineering PhD, and no labs or universities here are interested in me, it is driving me crazy.
I would attempt to work in Starbucks, but they will probably tell me I need cantonese, and/or I'm over qualified.
If I have to watch one more episode of Tellytubbies or Noddy or Barney that stupid dinosaur, I'm going to go mad. My brain is rotting, I feel myself becoming more stupid by the day.
What am I doing wrong? If anyone out there has any tips on job hunting and applications, please please help. I have done all the usual things of signing up with online recruiters and checking the classifieds every day and applying to whatever seems appropriate, but I hear nothing, it is so depressing and frustrating.
If any of you can offer any advice, I would be more than grateful.
