Why don't you just say you want other people to find you a job rather than blethering on about us all being in it together first and then expecting others to find you a job ?

Seems a bit harsh, it's an online forum, maybe the poster just wants a bit of interaction and reassurance. Go easy everyone has to start somewhere..

This is a tough crowd, I've noticed people in Dubai are very nice but when some get behind the wheel of a car all bets are of, it looks like its the same online some people are a bit rude.

Thanks racing goat I think some people are just angry

I would say those of the aggressive driving persuasion and of the likewise forum style are actually in the minority - however as we all know the minority often do make the most noise, "empty vessels etc."

Stick with it/us, we really don't bite

So..... Just a thought, I know it's so left field but..... What job do you want? You'd be amazed the amount of people here who can hire (and fire).

As I said, just a thought....

Yep. Not everyone is organised enough to through all threads etc prior to taking the easy way out though. He's not exactly the first internet dummy.

Also, its pretty desperate times in his situation. Give the guy a break. Starting a separate thread instead of posting in an existing one is hardly the most destructive thing that comes to mind in that position

Speakers, seekers, sneakers, it doesn't matter. It's not what you know or who you know that will get you a job but having a proper job search strategy. Which basically means your CV and cover letter are excellent and are tailored to the job you are applying for (consisting of relevant details) and you apply for jobs whose necessary requirements match your qualifications and skills 100%.
