So where does everybody look for jobs these days especially in design and media?
Have registered with nijobs and jobfinder so they send me emails daily if anything comes up.
What about the local papers or recruitment agencies...are they good?

Related to jobs, i'm at a certain crossroads. Heard back from a job I applied for saying I got through to next stage, but it isnt interview stage yet, stage 3 of 4 or something. However, I've been researching and have an interview for a teaching course in Barcelona over the summer for 6 months. With this qualification I could teach in any private school in Europe, but not guaranteed that I will find a job at the end of the course.

A tricky situation. I'm tempted to head over to Barcelona and have a go at this, maybe even move around Europe for a job related to teaching (rubbish pay, but would be good fun).

Any ideas?

I got my last job through twitter.

I've two regular jobs on at the moment, one through the board and the other one through the job I got from the board.

In design especially it seems that you need to be working to get work, sounds silly but when you're stuff is out and about you get chatting to more prospective clients. Fuck looking for a firm to work for, start small and work up.

Absolutely no ties here. No mortgage, car, gf, kids. May as well go and see what happens, not like the job situation will be any worse than it is now if i do come back here

aLEGEND is absolutely correct as well.

Create your own job. If you can make an idea work in this climate, it'll be such a runner come a recovery.

Anyone got any brilliant ideas for a business they fancy passing on to me?

Reversible cups. Sometimes I don't want the bother of washing a cup should I change from tea to coffee or visaversa. Struggling with the handle issue at the moment though. Scalded myself with all the prototypes so far.

So you're a coder geek that can't hold together a conversation ;)

Only joking. Often thought this about most of my uni class or the gamers that stayed in uni all during the night gaming.

Had an interesting chat with our new global head this morning about mobility and career progression. Other than just move jobs, he's moved internationally 5 times. He said he's never really chosen any of the roles since maybe his very first job. They just fall into his lap basically. Do your current job well and network a bit but don't go chasing jobs as they will usually come to you if you do it right.

Easier said than done?

i find myself having to look at particular company's websites to see if any positions are available as well.

Bollocks.

Also I can perfectly well hold up a conversation, the first interview went very well. I don't know what happened in this one.

I've had my eye out for a part time job but they're all shite. Glorified admin is all you can do at 20 hours per week :/

So I got accepted into the 6 weeks course in Barcelona. Up the hoods.

Figured I was mad debating between a job in Belfast and being able to see a great city with a view to travelling Europe after.

Doing a CELTA qualification for teaching English as a foreign language. I already have my TEFL, so this seemed like the next logical step. Heading over there mid July.

Anyone done any HGV training lately? Cost etc?

£500 when my bro did it (for lessions) but that was years ago

If a decent job is advertised as part time, would it be rude to contact them to ask how part time it is, or best to wait until the interview stage (if you get that far)?

0 |

it is absoulutely acceptable to contact them an ask. No-one likes to be sitting on the other side of the table in an interview only to find out the person you have spent time shortlisting etc actually couldn't take the job even if they wanted to because it is too many or not enough hours.

Its actually pretty poor that they didn't include it in the ad. Sames a lot of time.
