Are You A Pick & Mix Job Seeker ?

Fortunately for my children, Pick & Mix is alive and kicking – in cinemas, shopping centre’s, holiday resorts and airports to name just a few places. There is a new kid on the block too it seems – the Pick & Mix job seeker. When you go online and search through different job boards, there can be so many jobs that as you glance through them, you want to apply to as many as possible. What do you do? Well, if what other people tell me is true, you send out a generic CV to all of those jobs and see what happens.

Growth In Part-Time Job Opportunities

Part-time workers are a life-line for many UK employers, from the large multi-nationals to the smaller businesses with just a handful of employees. Interestingly, the latest figures (Dec 2010) from the Office of National Statistics in their GDP and Labour Market Report show how important part-time roles are now to the UK economy. Whilst the overall employment market did show resilience in the three months of Q3, in the period Q309 to Q310, it was part-time jobs which showed real growth at over 4% (a total of over 320,000 jobs), against full-time jobs which saw a slight decline of 0.2%.

80 Of The FTSE100 Company Career Sites

Most FTSE100 Companies have their own career micro-sites now, and I now have updated the list to 80 of the FTSE100, so this will interest anyone who is keen to work in a UK blue-chip company, the majority of whom have highly recognisable brands. Having looked at all 80 companies, many of them offer you the ability to search roles on their website by specific job category, geographical location and job type. As I have mentioned before, I don’t believe you will get the same responsiveness or service that you would from a good relationship-driven recruitment agency, or as diverse a choice of jobs (you are only looking at one company after all), but you should use these sites as part of an all-round planned job search programme. If you are looking for your next role in an International FTSE-listed corporate business, then this list is one of the best places to start your job hunt !
