Try, try and try again

I am pleased to announce that a good friend of mine has recently got the job he's been looking for. This hasn't been an easy ride for him, it has taken him over six months to get to this point. However it has been worth it as he now has a job which he'll be happy to go to in the morning and should help him to progress in his career.

Although this method isn't for everyone, as certainly isn't an option if you aren't already working, it shows that there is merit in not panicing and taking the first job that comes your way when things aren't going your way. With hardwork, a little luck and percerverance you are very likely to get something that will make you happy.

Even in these days of growing economic uncertainty there remains a wide range of jobs out there for you to go and get. So read this site, get prepared and make sure when the job you really want comes around you're in the best place to go and get it.

If you do, then please help the rest of us out by sharing your interview experiences and questions on this site.

Recruitment consultants

A good friend of mine nearly got caught looking for another job today when a recruitment consultant decided to ring him at work. Not only did he call him in work hours, he actually called him on his work phone and left a message with his boss!

Recruitment consultants can be very useful but some of them can be an absolute pain. I've seen the best and worst of recruitment consultants. The best have found me the jobs that I was looking for, prepared me well for the interview and given me regular and quick feedback. The worst send you to interviews that aren't appropriate, don't let you know how you got on and will constantly pester you with news jobs at inappropriate times - even when you've asked them no to.

I would still recommend using recruitment consultants as one of the roads to finding a new job - but I would definitely suggest not wasting time with those that are clearly working more for their own interests than yours.
