    Matching suitable jobs with people.

    I am not on job seekers allowance but if you are you have to apply for a certain amount of jobs to keep claiming it regardless of whether the jobs are suitable.

    There are all sorts of barriers to getting a job including age and location.
    Isn't that exactly what the job centres do, parson, match people to jobs?

    Sometimes it pays to take an 'unsuitable' job - as, for some strange reason, it is easier to find work if one is already in work. Surely any job - however menial - would be a help to restoring confidence and self esteem? It would certainly boost the discipline of regular hours.

    Are there not such places as 'Job Centres' that do exactly that - help people to find work? I understand they also offer help with writing CVs, letters etc., I seem to remember that Newspapers and Magazines have 'Situations Vacant' columns. There are also plenty of 'Agencies' - some that employ the low skilled or temps or casual labour - some that are more specific and find work for those with more qualifications, professionals, and/or disabled people,

    There is already a full support system in place for people to find employment - if they really want to - what else would you suggest?
    Job Centres are places of doom and despair. They are useless for helping you find work.

    Plutonium was on the dole for two years in an area of high employment. Either his search criteria was too narrow, or he is a lazy shit, take your pick. It would appear that he is now an expert in job seeking as well as a self taught Google professor in the field of autism. These skills tend to come to the forefront on a Saturday night and always coincide with the intake of large quantities of whiskey.

    When he says "as I understand it", googled information will always follow.

    No, I wasn't.

    No, it wasn't.

    were


    or he is a lazy shit, take your pick.
    If I'm lazy then please explain why:

    (a) I took a job for 7 an hour even though it was only for a week and I would have to sign on again after that;
    (b) I did voluntary work for the CAB for which I was paid nothing.

    And remind me what you said you do/did, LP? Oh, you didn't.


    It would appear that he is now an expert in job seeking
    Well in the sense that I have been in continuous employment since July 2010, you're right. Although for my last two jobs, I didn't apply, I was headhunted.

    In his ignorance, LP probably thinks that headhunters are an African tribe. Bless.

    Professional troll, doesn't get paid as such but does get off every time you nibble his bait.

    I've been on the dole 3 times.
    The first was the longest but I went to the careers office every day until I found a job. The work was rubbish and poorly paid, but it as work, not scrounging.
    The second time was for three days, the last for four days.

    There's always something if you're willing to find it.
    I'm a low educated, total guttersnipe, dim witted moron.

    Get back in your basket and behave yourself. Your master will be back soon.

    Perhaps some help with bus fares, while looking for a job.
    Or perhaps a bus pass.
