    Finding a job..

    I never realised it would be so hard to find work..
    Part time jobs are like hidden gems which are normally discovered by 600 applicants.

    I normally do call centre work part time while I continue my studies and normally have no problem at all finding a job. I have checked on most the popular job sites and I believe my CV is ok yet I rarely receive any word back..

    Anyone else having a hard time finding work again?
    Any tips on finding a part time role?

    Thanks

    no I own my own business, but I agree alot of people are finding it vv hard to get work.

    Just keep looking mate

    Don't just look on the internet, if it's not just call centre work you're after wander round shops/bars/pubs etc, most places advertise in their windows.....

    Oh, and spend less time on here!!! :thumbsup:

    I know that it doesn't actually pay you a salary, but what about volunteering in the interim - basically to keep you busy, get you out there networking and just building a few contacts, plus it's something else to put on your CV. Employers quite like it if you've done some volunteering in your local community.

    Try royal mail they only take on part time staff, they have done away with setting on full time staff..

    I got a full-time job and a part-time job, & i also go to uni part-time i've always found jobs no problem. Security/stewarding work there is the need for at the moment, but its not regular work you'll get called up for events etc which are always about in the summer.

    good luck

    Do you need to drive for a lot of their positions?
    Currently living in a semi dodgy area so kinda worried about getting attacked

    considering though =) thanks

    Good luck TM - I know how hard it is at the moment.

    Don't forget to check the local authority website as their advertise their own posts and have a lot of part time positions through job shares etc
