    Hi guys, just came across this site which is great I had my interview last Wednesday an it didn't go as planned. Didn't get to mention any of my experiences or link in theory, so disappointed with myself ...I know a few people who got rejected two days after interview, however because mine was so close to easter I'm thinking I could be rejected on Monday. .what do you all think?

    I also had my interview last wed at queens. I had under a week to prepare and I was up late learning everything and had put a lot of work in but I didn't cope well at interview I got too nervous and forgot everything and felt awful afterwards I was quite upset. I haven't heard anything yet but I was thinking the same because of Easter holidays that's why I hadn't heard. It's an awful feeling when u know ur capable of more but I'm sure a lot of ppl were the same

    Yeah I came out feeling terrible so that's why I went on the internet to find tbis because i needed to speak to people who were in same position and I'm also new to this. I think I will apply again next year I'm going to be 29 in June and I feel like maybe I'm too old but I went through 4 years of uni and started uni quite late because I had my daughter young so feel like iv missed my chances at a good career but I don't want to give up

    Jen I feel exactly the same, il be 34 in oct an only just graduated summer past, I spent the last 15yrs being a mammy to my 3 children so I know how u feel. However, when I applied 5yrs ago I was no where near confident enough to imagine being a social worker but now I'm ready, iv also been a youth ans community worker the past 5 years which I didn't even get to mention in interview altho it was on my personal statement. To be honest I felt a bit rushed in interview and kicked myself when I got out as to not just throwing all the info in lol...I think your age is perfect for sw as your a mature parent wit life experiences u can empathise with alot of people!!

    Andrea I was the exact same, I kicked myself when I came out about stuff that I should have said, but everyone in the same boat! So hopefully that will lessen your worries! What is done, is done and hopefully it went better than you think!😊 good luck!
