    Job Hunting Survey - Please Help

    Guys hope you can help,

    I am doing a study for a Diploma course on recruitment in the Education sector and wanted to run a poll of EduGeekers to find out where they had discovered their latest role.

    If you could indicate for me it might make for interesting reading!

    Limited to 10 types so hopefully this captures everyone..

    Really appreciate it !

    Having noticed the odd school based job in the local newspaper, I went to the source and kept scanning my local, and neighbouring, council's websites for job vacancies.

    Thirty years in IT and every job has been a result of newspaper ads by the company or school concerned. I've sent my CV literally hundreds (and probably thousands) of times to agencies and I've never had an interview as a consequence.
