    Yes, he did - probably means the news was bad. He doesn't react to posts in quite the way others would and I would suggest that this is a function of his autism.

    Had another interview on Thursday. I put more effort into this one than I ever thought possible. I walked 6 miles to the train station in the dark at 3:30 in the morning, just to get there. I pushed myself well beyond my limits during the interview. I pushed myself too far because I made myself ill. But it wasn't enough. I don't see how I can push myself further, or how I could have interviewed better. Putting so much effort into getting a job, so much effort that it nearly kills me, isn't enough. I'm sorry if you don't want to hear it, I'm sorry if it scares you, but something is seriously wrong with this world if suicide is my only way out of this living hell. I don't see how I can go through that ordeal again, just to get yet another rejection.

    Axe, please seek assistance from some one close to where you live.

    What you are suggesting no doubt will hurt others that you know. I am sure there are people out there who can offer you the support you need.

    Best wishes

    Unfortunately, there isn't anyone out there who can offer the support I need. I have no friends or family who can help me. Apart from the help that I get from this forum, I am completely alone.

    I think you mean 'implore' not 'applaud' ?

    Have you tried getting in contact with a Employment {Agency/ Solutions} company? Most offer services where they offer interview training as well as contacting companies where you have had interviews and get feedback so that they help you improve your chances.

    Yes, I'm registered with many, many agencies, and I phone them almost every day. Agencies are solely motivated by placement fees, and a candidate with autism, who can't seem to get a job, is not a high priority for them. Almost all of my interviews come from schools, councils, NHS, etc; the private sector employs almost exclusively through agencies, which is why I don't get many interviews compared with the number of jobs I apply for.

    Axe mate,

    I don't really know you but I've read this thread with interest.
    I can only imagine in part of what you must be going through - I've been in some very dark and depressive places in my life and I know what that was like for me.
    If I can help you or offer you advice or anything to try and help - throw me a PM on the forum mate.

    I know there may not be much I can actually do but it may help you to talk things over or just to have a sounding off about things.
    In any case, I'm here if needed mate. I'm about to become unemployed myself (due to personal circumstances) and I've been unemployed for a year prior to getting this job so I know long-term unemployment is... to put it lightly - crap.

    They promise so much help, but actual help... there's sweet FA.
    Seems if you WANT to work, you get penalised - if you are happy to sit at home scratching your ass and claiming benefits that's fine - at least that's how it was for me.
    I was looking for work, yet I got penalised for it - accused of 'not really looking' and all manner of crap like that.

    Anyway - if I can help in anyway - just ask and I'll do what I can

    Az

    I know this is for people wanting to work with autism.....but just wondering whether they would be more sympathetic to your situation...

    Thirded Axe, you have pretty much the whole of EduGeek as your friends now, I don't recon there is anybody on here that this thread hasn't touched!

    I wish you luck in looking for jobs Axe, why don't you try contacting the company Little Miss mentioned above, otherwise try contacting your local councillers to see if they can help you out anyway, sounds to me like there may be some disability discrimination going on with some of the interviews you are attending, which is not fair and is definatly not equal opportunites!

    Axe - Are you near to any Edugeekers going to the Conference thing-a-me-bob, maybe have a day out and meet some faces, even if it is only for a drink in the evening.
