So as many of you know I have been looking for work as a Mate/Labourer for around 5 months now, but no one will take me on due to not having enough experience. It really is a Catch 22 situation. So I have tried, phoning companies, emailing CVs, applying for Electricians Mates jobs on the job sites, going to the Wholesalers and giving each of them a CV and Cover Letter but I have heard nothing. Some get in touch, but then it just seems to fall flat. I am just running out of options really as its a long time to be out of work. Any suggestions on how to get experience would be great.

There is I’ve went in and spoke to the ones doing the electrical work. Said that they don’t have anything at the moment.

Sometimes in this game you have to tell the odd porkie. Try again saying you have 1 year experience. Have you got an ECS card

I have an ECS Labourer Card. I don’t want to lie as when I start it’s going to be pretty obvious that I’ve not got a years experience. I’ve got everything Tools, Car, Ltd Co with PL and PI Insurance.

You need to lie to get a foot in the door. Try it and see what happens

Well I done a trial yesterday but the guy after telling him what I’ve done, he could tell straight away that I had none to little experience. So that was the end of that so I don’t fancy trying to blag it. Rather be honest.
