Regional job hunting websites

There’s still a lot of bad news on the employment front, with a lot of large companies making layoffs and plenty of school leavers with no job to go to. You might think that this is a bad time to look for a new job – especially if you are employed at the moment. But there are still employers with opportunities for the right person, and those helpful people at My Job Group may be able to find one for you.

They have many different websites covering all areas of the country, such as local London jobs, my Edinburgh jobs and my Birmingham jobs. This allows them to target jobs to the area you’re interested in, without you having to sort through results to find those near you. They have listings from many local employers and a search engine to help you find the right opportunity for you.

On each site they also have a Careers Centre with tips on how to improve your CV, write a good cover letter or prepare for the interview – some of these ideas and suggestions might be just what you need to get into your new job! If you’re currently out of a job or just fancy a change, I recommend you take a look and see what’s available in your area.

Bad news on the employment front

Well, I’m back from the USA now, and the news in the UK media has been about the recent report showing that unemployment is still on the rise. A quarter of the 528,000 people who have been out of work for more than a year are less than 25 years old. There are thousands of school and university leavers who are just now entering the job market and finding it particularly tough.

However, one good thing to do if you find yourself in this situation is to look for extra skills or experience that can differentiate you from other applicants and make you stand out to employers. You can do this by looking for training courses which are relevant to the work you want to do (for example, you might consider a course on computer skills) or by trying to get some volunteer work to get you experience in the industry.

The market is so difficult now for those looking for work that even this may not be enough to get a job immediately. However, those that have spent the time bettering themselves will be the ones to benefit when the job market picks up.
