I have now been unemployed 3 weeks. This is the 2nd tme i've been made redundant in the last 3 years and the current UK economy is not looking very good so i am not overly hopeful at present.
Something i've noticed over the last few weeks is people telling me i should take anything as an income is better than nothing (well there is welfare so that isn't necessarily true). I try to understand this mentality but come slightly short of fully comprehending it as i was always taught to start at the bottom and work yourself up to the top and this mentality have followed me through my working life. I've worked in banking, retail sector and for a charity/social enterprise so the idea of taking a cleaner job (no prob with the role, my mother is a cleaner) makes me think twice and also potential employers in the future may look at my CV and make a decision which could go either way. I want to go up, not down.
Would you take anything to ensure the bills were paid?
Thanks in advance.
