    I think in this economy climate it might take longer but just keep trying.

    It’s pretty bleak in the chemistry world too Tony but look on the bright side – more time to ride!
    I’ve only been out of work for a month, I hope I don’t have to wait 3 months. All the best.

    That is sad indeed 🙁

    But sadder still, are some of the muppets on here, who argue that the way to get you back to work is to slash your benefit payments.

    Try not to be too despondent, you’ll eventually find something – but hold out until you find a job which deserves your skills.

    Good luck 😐

    have you thought about starting your own business? if you can build up a business in this climate then you’ll reap the rewards by the time the country gets back on its feet 🙂

    Hey Jedi, are you looking overseas for contract roles?
    I’m sure you are but there’s likely some short term stuff in Dubai etc (seems there always is).
    If you’re a trade person (i.e. can use a saw, screwdriver, etc) then check out Aus, at the moment the crunch hasn’t hit too hard, but it will – but hey, get a working holiday visa for a year, pop over (if you can afford it) and start going for a trade role.
    And as for getting over here, well, personally I’d be looking for something courier esq.
    Of course this is all pipe-dreams, but then if you’re thinking about the opportunities you’ll not miss them when they come, and I’m sure they will!

    Good luck!

    Plenty of jobs in Vancouver Tony, even with the downturn in the economy. Even I’ve got one :-0

    Sorry to hear that….I got made redundant beginning of this yr, but was on gardening leave from mid-December.
    No luck yet…..it seems very slow. Even the recruitment agents seem quite pessimistic at the moment, which is quite worrying.

    There are jobs out there; just not in the areas that I have experience in! Typical!

    I’m surprised that people are surprised that us recruitment consultants are pessimistic in the current climate, even more surprised at the faces people pull when I explain the lack of opportunities available at the moment at all levels.

    If thousands are being made redundant in the UK why on earth would anyone expect Employment Agencies to be overflowing with vacancies?

    Kingtut…I made the comment as normally recruitment agents are full of optimism and general ‘you’ll find something’ enthusiasm. I was trying to get across that it is obviously pretty bad out there if the recruitment agents are noticeably downbeat….that was all.

    Jedi….nice one. Good luck!!

    I wasn’t having a pop at you personally or at anyone really, yes us recruiters are finding it tough.
