					?There are plenty of places that you can look for employment, and you should always
keep your options open when searching for a new job. The internet is is a good place
to search foremployment as most companies use the internet to advertise nowadays
and it is becoming more popular as time goes on. Not all businesses use the internet
though, some use the job centres and the local press so its always worth a visit or a
look in the classifieds. Employment agencies also offer a wide range of vacancies,
some permanent and some temporary. Temporary positions may not be what you are
looking for but you can gain valuable practical experience, which will go well on your
CV. Temporary positions can also lead to permanent employment so this is an option
that is worth considering.

Most websites have search bars where you can specify the type of job you want, or
the geographical area that you want to work in, for example you could search for jobs
Birmingham or jobs Glasgow, or you could narrow the search down to plumbers jobs
in Glasgow.

Always think about learning new skills, or gaining new qualifications. New skills will
vastly improve your chance of getting employment. New skills can open doors and
could also lead to a new and better paid job. If you feel youre stuck in a rut or in a
dead end job then retraining could be the answer youre looking for.

You can always use the direct approach, say you are unemployed plumber you could
make a list of plumbing businesses and then send them a CV with an accompanying
letter asking if there are any positions vacant.CV'S
