Experience

Gaining useful, bona-fide experience from the work place with fluctuating mental health can be a daunting task. And I find it painful.

Articulating the reality of hard earned experience and conveying my self worth at interviews often seems out of my grasp due to mental health, non verbal communication, body language and lack of a clearly defined experience all rolled into one.

Struggling to reflect a new potential based on experience accrued is totally nerve racking when trying something new.

But I have to do it or I will not be able to contribute.

Interviewers know what experiences they are looking for. So I have to verbally tick their boxes with something that tells them that I have those experiences in a way that satisfies them.

That is the reality of an interview and technique. Moreover they need to be able to work with me so that I can fit in and contribute to their organisation.

Poor mental health and lack of experience have obstructed me from accepting the truth of these realities. I have to be aware of what I am doing at an interview in the hope I will pass it without giving up.
