    I got a letter of rejection when I applied to do voluntary work I mean whats so wrong with me?!

    I thought people would appreciate the free help! Dinted my confidence a bit, :bawling: I mean if I can't even get a voluntary job I don't have a hope in hell of getting a job when I leave Uni!

    i work at Oxfam twice a week. i cant really say it gives me a warm fuzzy feeling though but at least it makes a change from my paid job which i really hate at the moment.
    its ok though, good experience, nice people to talk to and looks good on your cv, definetley worth doing if you have nothing better to do like me!
