    If your job search takes ages what are your alternative jobs?
    Looks like recession is going to stay on the way - it is good to have ideas.

    It's not necessarily a job but I do a bit of day trading whilst at work, something i'd get a bit more involved in if I ever got canned. With the way the markets are at the moment there is big money to be made.

    I am a lorry driver. Full time.
    And i doing this for 4years now.
    Somehow i have to make this change this year because my cv looks bad enough, already. The last 3 jobs, HGV driver. I am really afraid, this going to make any career change nearly impossible. I could make up extra role-s, responsibilities but that does not do any difference. So that is a tricky one.....:hhhmmm:cussing:sick
