If your trying to get jobs in a city which you want to move to and you think your getting turned away because you don't have a local address Would you use your bestfriend who lives in that city?
Do you think that will make the hiring people look at your resume more?

People really need to know how to appear professional not only when you are being interviewed but when they are the ones doing the interviewing.

Temp agency rantCollapse )
I had to buy chocolate to cheer myself up.
I'm considering busking. There was a Jamaican dude busking in the subway and I am so much better than he was. I told my parents I wanted to be a busker when I was little. They were appalled! Problem is, busking is linked to begging in our society. Shame that.

current mood: frustrated

7:24 pm - Applications suck

herringprincess
Here's a puzzler for you: how does one write a job application that is professional and positive without sounding pretentious and arrogant?
Doesn't help that I'm in CV-writing mode, but the job is working for the Quakers, and their letter to me is fairly light, so I'm trying to strike a balance between formal and friendly...

8:38 am - Dole and temping

herringprincess
Signing up for unemployment benefit in the UK is more complicated than getting a job. I know this is deliberate, but it's very annoying when you are given a 'are-you-eligible-for-dole' appointment over a week after you applied for one, and live in fear that one of these jobs you've applied for will offer you an interview at the same time and so you'll go to that and then not get it and not even be on dole and have to start all over again. Paranoid? Me? Just used to things not going my way at the moment.....
And another thing. Temp agencies are supposed to make jobhunting easier, right? In what alternate universe does this actually happen?

current mood: vaguely ranty

8:52 pm - My turn

It's hard enough finding a decent job when you've been living in a place for a while and you have a network of friends and family to fall back on. In fact, most people I know got their jobs through someone they knew. But when you've been living somewhere for only a year and you've been studying and haven't built up those networks, how do you find jobs? Particularly when you take into account that 70 percent of jobs aren't advertised, that's a huge chunk of the pie that people like me can't access. So where does that leave us?

I've worked as an English teacher on two different continents and now that I'm "back home," I'm stuck applying for jobs that you don't even need a degree for and which even I think I'm overqualified for. It really stinks.

current mood: annoyed

Why is it so far to find a job as a History teacher? Why for?
