    Monday mornings are always slow unless were coming up to a milestone.
    True. I'm tired and bored so I need a distraction but no one is taking on this thread and I don't want to talk to myself. :P

    I'm wondering why agencies keep calling me and asking if I'm interested in a job and I never hear from them again!

    A lot of agencies have KPIs that need to be met. They might not actually have job available and just want you on their books.

    Do you have a LinkedIn profile up?

    With agencies I've learned to be very wary to who I send my CV to. Some are just CV grabbers and then spam you to death with pointless emails about jobs that neither fit you or are anywhere near where you live.

    I've learned to investigate the agency to ensure they meet my criteria of being an agency I want to do business with.

    I think you need to spruce up your LinkedIn profile to attract the right people. Lots of companies use LinkedIn these days.

    I get that all the time - "We have this role, would you be interested?" I always reply with "Send me the job Spec and I will let you know"

    Tends to weed out a lot of the blaggers.

    Today i had an exam. I didn't study anything. And i learnt, you can easily pass using this method.
    - come 15 mins early.
    - write answers on your bench.
    - copy them on paper.

    No one looks at your desk. O.o

    Suggestions would be to add more in depth information on your LinkedIn profile. Treat it like a business card and CV at the same time. I would also suggest joining groups that fit with the type of job you're after and any job groups that have listings for positions in your area/discipline.

    Had an interesting dinner party this weekend with a new group of friends.

    Conversation turned to religion for around 30 minutes with everyone discussing there chosen faiths. Spent the whole time silent just listening and looking more and more bored.

    Eventually someone tried to engage me in conversation on the subject with the line "You've been quiet, what's your faith?"

    My response "I have no faith and no beliefs, I live my life the way I see fit, make my own choices, mistakes and take responsibility for my actions. I refuse to follow the ideas set down centuries ago as a system of control for the needy and week-minded masses"

    The 5 minute silence that followed was priceless. Eventually broke the silence myself with "Guess you don't want me to say grace before dinner then?"

    I don't think I will be invited out with that circle of friends for a while.

    You also need more connections and possibly do some networking. Are there any networking events you can attend? Also do a search on Work Jelly in your area. What this is, is a self employed work group that brings people together to get self employed people out of their homes and be able to network more. With your skills you should be able to attract some business easily.

    It was quite a mixed group and it was actually quite an involved and surprisingly civilised discussion. We had Sikh, Muslim, Catholic, Christian, Baptist represented. The conversation wasn't at all preachy by any means, it just seemed that if I hadn't have been asked my opinion and closed the conversation down completely they would still be talking about it now.

    That's quite the mixed group you had there, including yourself in the mix. What's amusing is that none of them really have much justification for why the believe what they believe other than simply being brought up by it or finding something that 'suited' them. It always interesting though how those who believe will always try to find something to believe in but rarely think that disbelief is an option. Oh well. Listening to that conversation probably would have driven me nuts too. I try to be polite as much as possible but I would have pretty much said the same as you once asked.

    I have the same issue. I can normally eat less on the weekends. I think it's the work we do. :P
