HICCUPS

    I endure a number of persistent and alarming career-threshold hiccups. These are significant snags and hurdles which prevent me form developing as fluently as I should, like a stammer, I remain inexperienced for too long in a new job.

    I recognise that employers expect me to develop at a reasonable rate. How then, can I ensure that this happens to stay in a continually adjusting employment? It is like I am always trying to start over again, each time, like a recurring nausea.

   This then, could be my alternative CV profile; I have the energy, enthusiasm and efficiency but it is not enough for I need the knack of gaining knowledge through experience at the required pace, as my peers do, to be profitable and competitive.

   So I would no longer look on, left behind, whenever I start a new employment. This career hiccup has always been with me to a great degree, to the bewilderment of my family, friends and to what I have anticipated of myself. Oh Dear!! It all sounds like gobbledegook out there!

   Though at least I have flown, a few feet, off the ground, coughing and spluttering into action.
