Have you got a work-related problem? In a new series we invite you to send in a short description of your predicament â€“ so that other readers can offer solutions
My daughter has recently finished a programming course. She did really well and had a short placement afterwards. She wants to work but has been spooked in the past by bad experiences with interviews. Also she is quiet â€“ not the kind of person who will lead a conversation â€“ and this doesnâ€™t help. This fear of interviews has held her up for months now and she is starting to lose confidence in her ability to work. She has wonderful qualities. She comes from a big family and has always been a team worker. She is not catty or gossipy. She is very smart and willing to learn. But she canâ€™t bring herself to face an interview. Any advice?
