Which job search sites would you recommend?
Currently using http://www.indeed.co.uk and totaljobs.com.
the actual jobcentre site
jobs.ac.uk (for academic related)
also industry specific are very good, eg theengineer.co.uk for engineering jobs.
As above + totaljobs
Have you looked on your local paper website? Quite often they have a careers section that is quite good as it's jobs that aren't 150 miles away!
And, industry specific as above.
Cheers folks - hadn't thought about LinkedIn.
hadn't thought about LinkedIn.
Depending on your industry (?) many companies use it as a way of getting people who are linked to the right people to apply. Some very good jobs get put there and often nowhere else apart from the company website!
I got mu current gig through connections on Linkedin, so I'd say it's well worth looking at.
The ? above is to ask your industry - Am sure someone here may well know someone/something specific to help you!
I am currently an account manager in the construction industry (I work for a main contractor). I am on LinkedIn but I've only ever used it to stalk people (I'm not on Facebook). Not literally, obviously. So I might need to put a bit of work in to get the full potential out of it, but that's not a problem!
Who's linked to CFH on LinkedIn then?
'Tis a very useful site: it's got me a gig before, and a very useful one at that.
Hill McGlynn (now part of Randstat (sp?)) are / were a construction industry recruitment company. They're based in Whiteley (near Fareham) now, I think. Might help, hopefully...
Indeed is where i got every job iv had its a belter!!!! And no sponserd jobs or adverts!!!!
Just received a call from an HR guy from a company rather than an agency because he saw my CV on an industry specific site. Work smart, not hard.
linked in and indeed were good when I was looking, however I actually got my current job from reed which is not actually as good!
