Contracting: Looking for work: Unusual job sources

September 9th, 2008 by Richy B. Leave a reply »

I’m aware that a number of people reading this blog at the moment are looking for work – well, here’s a few resources you can try that you may not have considered:

(yes, Workcircle should be paying me a small commission if you find a job through their system).

Are there any unusual resources for IT jobs that you know about which you’d like to share?

This post is over 6 months old.

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".

    We have looked through the following page on your site:
    and noticed that you have a “jobs” section in which several sites were listed.

    We would like to recommend the addition of our site Careerjet (, an employment search engine for the UK. In one simple search, Careerjet gives the job seeker access to a massive selection of jobs that are compiled from various internet sources, saving the trouble of having to visit each site individually.

    Some of our embeddable tools might be of interest to you:
    JobBox – see
    SearchBox – see

    We hope this site will interest you and can be included in your listings.

    Thank you.

    Kind regards,

    Emily Kovak
