Hi again

I'm afraid there are not likely many employers trawling the internet or these forums looking for employees. You sound like you have some experience that you could include on a CV that you could post or better still deliver in person to potential employers in your area. Woulld going self employed be an option for you?

In case a prospective employer were to ask, you probably need to think about how you would explain your reasoning for instances where you dropped out but it may be better to focus on experience gained over qualifications gained.

With a foot full of bullets I tried to run faster but I just hobbled on to the next disaster.
