    How do you guys find jobs? I'm looking for other jobs and don't know where to look! Are there any that are aimed at IT people?

      I don't want to do that, I want to find the job myself rather than people try to match me. I've been head hunted before and didn't like it so much.

        loads of websites out there. bang your CV on them and they email jobs that match your criteria

          I know you guys are saying websites, but a few examples would be lovely

          I've never done this before, I'm starting off with no knowledge

            Reed (has one click apply - its a job site)
            Jobsite (has one click apply - its a job site)
            Indeed (Is a job search engine, and finds a lot of duplicates as ads are placed on various job sites, can also support 1 click apply for some though).
            Fish4jobs (think its ****)
            monster (think its ****).

            Oilcareers for oil company based jobs, linkedin gets mentioned a lot but dont think it did me any good. I think I sent out 100's of job applications for about 3-4 interviews. Most of my failings back then were down to transport but that isnt a problem for you I guess been part of this forum

            As for IT specific job sites, I did come across one but it was pointless as I recall and I cant remember its name to be honest, your more likely to find IT specific recruitment agencies/head hunters who usually find IT people (and they still post job listings all over the place).

                give your CV to a proper recruitment company, not just a general website, where itll get lost.
