Our expert says:
Being out of work, for conscientious people like you and many of us, is a very unpleasant state, but don't give up hope. These are difficult times, and its not necessarily your fault either that you are out of work or that you haven't yet found work.
Why not see a good CBT style psychologist to learn how to control the anxiety that arises when you face interviews, and even role-play such situations so you can feel confident in dealing well with them. The symptoms you are describing are those of an anxiety disorder, and CBT is very successful in treating and controlling this disorder. Your self-description also sounds like depression, which commonly accompanies anxiety, and also responds well to CBT, so get properly assessed by the psychologist, and properly treated for any disorders that are causing problems for you. You say you went for CBT, but it really doesnt sounds like its working properly - maybe your shrink isn't doing it right, or somehow the pair of you aren't compatible and you' do better working with someone else.
