I am thinking of giving up completely on construction (“Anxious about finding work in 2010?”, 26 February, building.co.uk).

It has pretty much ruined my life. “Experienced” and “qualified” doesn’t mean anything – especially if you are young.

I’ve been job hunting for more than a year now and there is not even the slightest hint of anything, because I am not at senior level. When will people wake up? Probably never, is my judgment on this backward industry.
