The Job Club

I am often asked to talk at schools, colleges and job clubs in the UK. I was recently invited to host a job club event helping the long term unemployed find work. It’s sad that so many people have forgotten that finding work is in itself, a full time occupation. The number of people who spent an hour a day (or less) job hunting amazed me…it really did! Most were looking on line once every few days and that was it. They were off walking the dog, watching TV and shopping! Of course some had taken up voluntary work or had applied for warehouse work to keep the money dripping in…but they really were the exception. What a shame…people must make it happen themselves. One lady said that she wasn’t going to register with any more agencies…because one was rude to her once! And she’s still not working….go figure!
