    Previously I had failed my AS levels and resat in 2011 which took a toll on my mental health leading to depression. In 2012 I managed to get to Uni and managed to overcome my obstacles and ended up this year with a first class degree in a science field. I now want to progress to masters year set to start in January

    Between me finishing Uni in May, I returned home and went on to job seekers allowance to help me with money whilst I looked for a job. I tried at many interviews and have not got anything, I'm still trying. My family life is terrible, it's constant picking on me on whatever I am doing even though my usual tasks are either studying/preparing as much as I can for masters or reading inspirational books which have been life savers for me throughout and that's where I seek inspiration from. I get yelled at like a kid for basically just breathing. I cannot afford my own place (or i would be paying for masters too - I have to rely on family) however I asked clearly and they said it was fine. Now it's constant arguments over absolutely nothing. I feel hopeless and no idea what to do!

    what's letting you down at interviews? if you can eradicate the problem, and perform well at the interview you should get a job. it's not your fault, keep trying and working on yourself - don't be put down by the negatives, focus on the positives and good things will happen!!
