LinkedIn Yet?

Category: PersonalChrisM @ 1:06 pm

In the sector of information technology, jobs can sometimes be difficult to find if you have not got the right experience in some areas. However, to get that experience, you need to be in a job with responsibilities related to that area. Unless there is a good training scheme, or the possibility of promotion with new skill set requirements, you can end up in a vicious circle. The next time we live in Britain, I really hope I can find a job with some hope of promotion, however two out of the three last proper employers no longer exist or have ceased operations in Britain. This means providing a reference could be difficult, so I decided to use the Recommendation section over at my LinkedIn profile. If you want to have a look at them, I think you need to add me first. I was just wondering if anyone had used these when applying for a job in Britain. I am hoping that people working in the IT industry might be more willing to accept this form of reference?
