Episode 13 - Looking For Work (Part 1)
In this episode of the Improvement Podcast, Sean & Dave talk about the ins and outs of looking for work. We've definitely been there, when it seems impossible to obtain any form of work. We've been hired and we've been made redundant. We've had roles for years, and been without work for months. I know we're not alone. We discuss alternative ways to apply for roles, and also going it alone. We'd love to know your thoughts - let us know.
Questions We Faced Today
Do people need to consider retraining?
How secure is your job, really.
Is experience more valuable than a degree?
Is there an alternative method of applying for roles?

Our favourite pieces of advice from the episode. They come in many forms, but all are encouraged and (we like to think) pretty useful.
Sean's - Keep your options open. You'll never be 100% secure. Keep an eye out for opportunities.
Dave's - Think like a business. Look at their point of view while applying for roles.
