I took redundancy 6 months ago, the restructure was badly planned and myself and others felt very ill having to do twice the workload as half of the staff had gone. I did not want to leave where I worked as it was a nice place to work. I had a break for a few months to rest etc.
2 weeks ago I signed up to recruitment agencies, I thought I would easily get work. I had 3 last minute interviews and found this daunting as I had not practiced interviews in months. Feedback I had was I came across as quiet or gave yes or no answers. The yes and no answers the interviewer asked closed questions so I did not know how I could elaborate. Coming across as quiet I am a quiet person but my previous roles involved lots of telephone work. I overcame being quiet and became confidence and assertive. I was good at my old job but I feel I have lost some confidence since leaving.
Now I don't know what to do. Is August a quiet month for applying for jobs? The jobs I seem to find at call centre work. I would prefer an introverted role but still helping people. The interviewers have said they have aggressive customers which may not suit my personality. Anyone got any advice?*
