Finding jobs for the disabled
You know that title makes me cringe. . 'The disabled' - sounds like we're talking about an alien race - that's us! Please say something like 'Finding jobs for disabled people' - now that covers all impairments.
Reading this thread and having read that people have sent out nearly 1000 applications and only got four negative replies means you're not doing something right.
It's a shame that there isn't a forum on how to write a decent CV. Everyone has skills that you might just take for granted. If you look after your on household budget then you have financial skills. Creating a shopping list - shows you have organisational skills.
Tailor make each CV to match the job you're applying for - that's how you get shortlisted for an interview. Don't send out the same CV to different organisations.
By the way I'm only trying to be constructive if you're really wanting to work not being judgmental.
