Hello, I have just joined Horses Mouth and hope to gain some good advice. I am 43 years old and recently returned to UK after living abroad for 8 years. Am finding it difficult to find work, I think because I have been out of the system for so long. I am applying for Admin jobs and hardly ever get any response, presumably because there are so many applicants.
Would like to do some voluntary work to enhance my CV and have an interview at Citizens Advice Bureau to see if I can train to be an adviser. Will this improve my chances at getting a paid job?
Seeking any career advice or ideas, am getting quite down about it all.

If you've lived, you've learned...and you've probably got a story to tell. Mentoring online is the perfect way to share your hard earned-wisdom with those who can benefit from your experiences and knowledge, all in a supportive, safe and secure online environment. It takes seconds to sign up and you never know who you might meet!
If you've tried using search and browsed the profiles on our site but can't find anyone who's quite right for you, send a request for a mentor to the whole community. You'll get some good responses and one or two may turn into mentoring relationships.
