Job seeker Resource
Ok, so one of the initial projects that we got planned is to build a job seeker user listing of resources that we have been recommended or have used personally. Being based in the UK, you will find that most of these services are UK based. That then means that the employment resources are for UK domicile people looking for work in the UK, or for people abroad looking to crack the UK jobs market. You will find that Jobseeker Resources pages, are broken down into the principle HR services you would expect from a professional HR department within a large company and are broken into the following: job search, CV writing, interview coaching, training & development, career coaching and salary negotiation.
For job search, we have currently focused on employment/ recruitment agencies and on job boards/ job sites. We aim to list those companies or websites that we have been recommended by people we know and trust, or have 1st hand experience ourselves of how they work, how good they are as job seeker tools.
With CV writers, there are a myriad of services available at all sorts of prices being charged, with some companies out there charging ridiculous prices right through to other operators who seem to charge a very reasonable price for the service offered. Again, these have been recommended to us by authorities in the market or have been tested 1st hand.
Interview coaching typically gets offered by wither career coaches or CV writing houses, though there are some business operators out there that focus on this aspect of HR and have made a business out of it.
Career Coaching & Planning professionals are varied in the level of service they offer, prices they charge and level of job seeker candidate they target. We will strive to deliver a clear break-down so you can quickly disseminate the best service for you.
DO REMEMBER that the Resource page is a WORK IN PROGRESS. Any good listing worth its mustard takes time to collate.
Enjoy the site!
