    I found in no real order.

    www.monster.co.uk -- good list of jobs. Agencies seem to check the CVs here and if its got the buzzwords they will call you with job offers.

    www.reed.co.uk - IMHO the best job search here, although jobserve is a very close second

    www.cwjobs.co.uk - seems to mainly specialise in real techie jobs

    www.totaljobs.com - to me the worst of the bunch, cant search by minimum and maximum salary that makes it harder to wade through

    www.jobserve.com - Good search facilities if you're looking for a job near home, allows you to search within radius



    what kind of jobs r u looking for? I found using the generic searches e.g. IT and Telecoms. Then putting a minimum and maximum wage level to be the most useful for job hunting.

    Remember to make sure ur CV is bang on though. My CV was poor and it meant 4 weeks of no phone calls :-(. As soon as it was improved I got 4 interview offers within a fortnight.

    what they said all you do is tell the site to send you jobs in your area.

    Allthough most of will send you jobs from a few miles outside you area.

    Many thanks for the links

    Erm, i'm looking for any kind of technical support job that allows me to get hands on experience with server end technologies.

    If you click the link below, it redirects you to my topic in the newbies section which explains a little about my current position

    Make a good CV with plenty of buzz points as a lot of them have on this forum. Then dash it onto monster and u should be all good. Highlight ur experience of server 03 and AD.

    Theres normally recruitment agencies that will call you up virtually straight away.

    Position ur in at the moment is ideal. You may find it tricky to go straight into a server role as they tend to want quite a lot of experience. Having said that u may get lucky, I'd assume it would depend a bit on ur area.

    When u go 2 companies make sure u have a swagger round and check what the job progression opportunities are. I'd imagine there will be a few companies wanting to bite ur hand off due to ur age and experience.

    Main thing that I got wrong is make sure your CV is perfect before applying for jobs or posting on Monster.

    Hope this helps
