Dear all,
Thinking of switching jobs. Just wanted to know if anyone could recommend a reputable jobsite advertising 'real' jobs. Also, any employment agencies you might recommend.

I've done loadsa modelling on MATLAB, and am looking for a position where I could put this to use, and hopefully make a living out of! I've sent CV's to some jobsites in the past, but I get the impression that they list fake adverts. Also, I've not had much luck with employment agencies as well.

Any help appreciated!
sashi

ps: send me a private message if that's more comfortable for you

Unfortunately I can't advise any other route than applying to everyone you can. Companies frequently have 'sole agency' contracts with particular recruiters, so if you don't apply to many agencies you are effectively cutting yourself off from many potential employers.

Also, keep resending your CV, perhaps every month, to ensure that recruiters know that you are still looking.

The IET offer a jobs website where you can register your details and upload a CV, you can find details of this at: www.theiet.org/jobs or by going to the Jobs section under the Careers and Training tab.

There is also general information on writing a CV and applying for roles in our Career Options section at: www.theiet.org/career-options or by going to the Career Options section which is under the Careers and Training tab.

If you have a specific job profile in mind for the type of work that you are interested in then you may also like to use the online professional development system, Career Manager, to formulate a job profile from recognised engineering frameworks.

Thanks all for your suggestions. I'm actually trying to make the leap from academia, and am looking for something in industry now.

cheers,

If you are sending to employment agencies have you also phoned them a day or so later to have a chat with one of their people? Last time I was looking I built up a good relationship with one recruiter in the North west and got a job offer through him

I made a list of agencies and just went down the list each week looking for the new jobs and applying to the ones that looked good - I found that internet job agencies are quite passive and you have to apply rather than waiting for the jobs to find you.

I would also take a good hard look at the CV as well - not saying yours is bad but any little tweek and additional info is always good

I have a doubt.

MATLAB is to be purchased. But there is a free software namely SCILAB. What are the capabilities of Scilab compared to Matlab for a power engineer?

I have experienced that Scilab can be used for Complex number calculations including Matrix Inverse. What are other uses for a power engineer?

Yes, most advertised jobs do seem to be placed via employment agents, recruitment agencies or other such intermediaries.


I would like to add there are two types of job market in the UK; the advertised job market (based on 20% of the job vacancies) with increased competition from other candidates and the un-advertised or hidden job market (based on 80% of the job vacancies)

The only way to get the number of people needed for engineering is to :

Pay them attractive salaries
Stop treating them like nerds
Have more respect generally for engineering
Have a far higher understanding of what encourages people into engineering

Finally - keep those people still in engineering as engineers (rather than pen-pushers) so as to pass on their knowledge or experience otherwise engineering in the UK will die completely - it is in its final death-throws and another 5-10 years will see it in its grave unless there is a massive change in attitude now.

Engineers are the salvation of this country, and all of its problems.
