Is it a recession or just a tight market? Either way, the job-hunt has just become trickier yet again. The fine people on our national broadcaster who bring you The Tubridy Show are feeling your pain and have invited me to come on air and talk through the nuts and bolts of job-hunting in 2008.
We did the first slot today, talking about laying the foundations for your hunt. You can find the entire programme here or just listen to the pertinent part (about 19 minutes) below:

For me, the takeaway point is the quote from Jaws in which Richard Dreyfuss explains the nature and perfection of sharks:

“Mr. Vaughn, what we are dealing with here is a perfect engine. A eating machine. It’s really a miracle of evolution. All this machine does is swim and eat and make little sharks, and that’s all.”

I contend that the jobs marketplace is equally simple in its nature and, as long as you make an effort to understand it and build your approach from that understanding, you can compete effectively without getting your legs bitten off.

The Tubridy folks have put links up to the discussion points and books we discussed on the show here.

Next week: It’s CV time!
