My brother is currently a Call centre manager for a publishing company who do Industry and Manufacturing sector magazines. He is experienced in both telesales (on advertising), presentations, managing up to 50 staff at a time, looking after Manufacturing clients and research projects. He has qualifications in Media and writing and is currently also putting his first novel out looking for a publisher.

His job is decidedly dodgy at present and he is actively looking at his options.

Looking for a new job as well as of today - do job sites like Monster and all that actually work ?

Any advice on where to look would be helpful to me , I've always looked in the paper but looking to spead my wings into something new and exciting

Is the job market everything people say it is in this climate or should we not be affraid to go and leave our comfort zones ?

I have used jobsites in the past mainly jobserve as I worked in IT, they do work. But I found that they mainly seem a way for recruitment consultants to get your CV and they don't always read them correctly. I.e I was a systems engineer (IT)before become a Voice and Data engineer (IT) so therefore I get loads of job ads for System Engineer (avionics) :)

But they are free so cant do any harm and get you plenty of exposure

The job market in IT is pants at the moment, everyone I speak to in it is telling me there is none around.

Hi Jon,

The monster job site does work - in fact we recruit most of our staff from it saving a fortune in agency fees. There is no harm in posting your CV on it as many employers have accounts to search for candidates. In this way we sometime end up recruiting people based on a CV we like the sound of rather than to fill a specific vacancy. If you dont post your CV you are missing part of the potential market.

The problem is with some recruitment agencies who are just out for a quick buck and think that all they need to do to get 20% commission is to look at a job advert, do a search on monster and then forward a few CVs without contacting the person who wrote the CV or as mentioned above even read the CVs properly.

Having said that there are some excellent specialist agencies out there as well who (depending on your background) are worth talking to as well.

For obvious reasons there are a lot of people looking for work at the moment but there are also companies still recruiting (eg we are still looking for electronic engineers).

Good luck finding something suitable.

I think Monster and CareerBuilder just pick key words out of your CV and use them to link you to jobs. Most of the job details I receive are not at all related to my experience, but, as has been said, these sites are free and relevant things do turn up. In this climate you have to use all the tools at your disposal. Don't rely on them, though. I've been told that few people get jobs through them.

You could try LinkedIn.com. This site has jobs posted by members and some are posted only on there. It's a networking site. You can search for people, get connected to friends and colleagues, see their connections and expand your network.

Also, have a look at employment agencies to see what they can offer you.

I'm pretty secure, running my own small consulting company with a long term contract in London but I am still signed up to Exec Appointments. In my opinion this is one of the best recruitment sites out there. It has an excellent and very granular search filter and it trawls dozens of the top agencies, mailing matched opportunities on a daily basis. I regularly get anything up to a dozen a day and the vast majority are just about a perfect match.

Whilst some sectors are better than others, the best route to another job is personal networking. In a 25+ year carreer spanning 6-8 jobs, I've only ever applied for one - my first after school. For all the others I've been headhunted. I'd encourage everyone to sign up to Linked In. I've been there for about 3 years now and although only a few opportunities have come through, they are very relavent to my experience and come via personal recommendation, which is always the best way. It also proves you must never burn your bridges, no matter how many numpties you work for.....

I regularly come across new requirements (and have several contractors working for me now) - I'll pop in here when something new turns up.

I'm a soprano, having trained at the Royal Northern College of Music. Whilst I stopped pursuing opera a very long time ago, I do perform at weddings in the London and home counties areas, and occasionally do concert platform work and recitals. I really, really should have a website for this, there is one in the pipeline, I am just slow/lazy(?) with technical stuff.

Just because you can, does'nt mean you should.

Jobsite.co.uk has lots of good jobs

Rapido is an easy search

As a chemist I have always found recruitment agencies totally rubbish

and gave up on them months ago. in my experience, lazy uninterested

and if you want to get anywhere you are constantly harassing them

and as for the jobs they put you in for, i'm sure they don't read CVs!

Anyway, sick of science so, after 20 years playing with quite a few motorcycles,

classic cars and landrovers/rangerover classics in my spare time, I am wondering if there

is anyone out there who would consider taking on a 40 year old apprentice

vehicle restorer. I have no formal qualifications in vehicle maintenance

but am a good spanner wielder and can do a little light welding. I would like

to start at the bottom and do my qualifications as I go along.

If anyone could point me in something like the right direction, I am in the

Crewe area but would happily travel 20 or so miles for the right vocation.

Know it's a long shot but if you don't ask, you don't get!

cheers

Neil

I'm impressed ! how about recording and posting some stuff, I'd love to hear it.

Trevor, I pretty much agree. I did once get a job via Monster, but I am the only person I know who did and the job didn't last long. Most of what CareerBuilder sends me is semi-relevant but generally way above my level.

Back to the main purpose of the thread, I am unemployed. For the last six years I worked with piped medical gas systems, which are the networks of piping in hospitals that move the oxygen, air, vacuum, N20, N2, etc. through the building and end at those funny little sockets over the patient's beds or other places. I did standards compliance inspections (annual maintenance as well as certification), upgrades, retrofits, equipment installs, emergency services, etc. I also did a small amount of indoor air quality work in medical facilities which mainly consisted of ventilation studies (fresh air exchange in OR's, labs, etc.) and a little bit of chemical vapour monitoring. I have also been the Director of Maintenance in a residential nursing-care/physical rehab facility. I have an National Fire Protection Association Inspector credential and I am a memeber of the Medical Gas Professional Heathcare Organization.

In my personal life I have restored motorcycles, built theatre sets, done home improvement, etc.

If anybody knows anybody in the Atlanta area who can use my talents (especially in healthcare facility engineering support), please don't hesitate to get in touch.
