All I want is a job and some dignity

Two years ago I was made redundant from my job as a professional in a construction-related business. Since then I have tried, without success, to secure another job.
I started out looking for a similar position to the one I'd been in for the previous 10 years. However, it soon began to dawn on me that the construction industry was in freefall and that I would have to broaden my job search criteria.
Having only worked in one particular industry, my experience (although extensive) was quite specialist.
