I got the first sense this week in a long time that some kind a real jobs appetite was starting to return to the market.
The number of briefs coming in to our consultancy is starting, I think, to show that the demand is returning. You wont see any pictures of green shoots or mentions of anything green at all but if you want an instinct on what is happening, then there you have it.
It was good to see the Reed Index reporting some positive year on year stats for post Easter too.
I am looking forward to seeing some more good news reports later this year.
Indeed to the uninitiated is where you may very likely end up after a few clicks of a recent job search without necessarily knowing. It’s a great handy place to carry out your job search because it sort of acts like a google for all jobs. You only really need to go to one place and do a search for a job function and you get some great recent job postings in that category….easy.
As reported in Venturebeat.com Indeed has overtaken TotalJobs to become the top job search site in the U.K. based on unique visitors.
As of March 2012, Indeed has attracted more than 67 million unique visitors

At the time of course I didn’t want to believe it having worked hard to get a business up and running.
Well not quite 60 seconds. Alexander Chase was delighted to start the week with another successful hire and placement.
The PR agency in question a top London Consumer Lifestyle agency with an enviable client list had been looking for a high calibre PR Account Manager for 3 months.
Not quite 60 seconds but we managed to find and select the right candidate within a week of receiving the initial brief. The hiring Associate Director was delighted with the progess Alexander Chase made having not worked with the agency before.
Great bench mark for future and a positive impression we have
Searching for job vacancies isn’t especially easy if you are currently in a role. Calls from job agencies with all sorts of different positions can be distracting. One of things that can be made to work for you is a simple tool called RSS or Really Simple Syndication!
