Happy 100th Birthday Approachthemarket.com

Happy 100th Birthday Approachthemarket.com

Last week was a special week for us here at Approachthemarket.com as it has been over a year since we started our venture to help UK Professional Job Seekers.  We passed the big milestone of our 100th article last week, hence the birthday cake as the picture.


To reflect on what we have done for people who are looking for jobs, we thought it would be a good idea to review some of our best posts over the last 12 months, and provide direct links so you can click straight through to read those that interest you.  If you know any family members or friends who may like what we write about, feel free to pass this on or you can share this post with them (and all the others) via Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn etc at the end of the article.


I hope you have also signed up to receive our regular FREE newsletter called “Career Brief”.  If not, you can do so in less than 10 seconds on the right hand panel, and you will receive all our updates automatically, and at no cost to you.  As a thank-you, you will also receive one of our helpful E-books which we are also giving away FREE, and is instantly downloadable via a link we will send you.


The last year has enabled us to build a wealth of information, tips and advice for all UK professionals in the job market today.  Below is a list of some of our favourites, which we hope you will like also.
