My 'Unemployment stage' thread has been going on for quite a while now, so I figured it was time to create a new thread with this update as I attempt to go from unemployment to being partially self-employed. Recently I was accepted onto my University's freelance program. They help to promote freelancers to small businesses. All work is paid. However, it is not guaranteed that I'll get any work as it is dependent on if any companies inquire. Still, I'm going to try my best to get the word out and network around. I'll still be applying to various different jobs of course in the meantime. So uh yeah, here's hoping I can get to the next stage of this journey.

I think it well. Certainly felt less intimidated when I was there than I did whilst I was preparing for the interview.
