    Agree Tap.
    Better than name and shame though- just sticky it on the vacancy thread saying idiots who spam the original poster will be barred. End of.

    Like has been said. Guys and gals posting vacancies will dry up because of all the clowns spamming them.

Why not create a page for those who applied for positions that they clearly did not have the qualifications for? Sort of like name and shame. I hope this does not put me in violations of the rules of the forum.

    Best Regards

    thanks lads not really what i wanted to hear but a whole lot better hearing it now than after paying for the heat course cheers boys. ps do you think its worth my while even shelling out for my cpo course in the first place seeing as theres so many overqualified lads with serious experience still looking for work it seems to be the same in all job sectors at the moment ive been plumbing the last few years recently let go, surviving on nixers,going for interviews but ive as good a chance as winning the lottery, dont want to pay big money for the course and be stuck in the same situation think i might just go for the army and go from there, any more advice would help boys, still undecided.

    Mate my advice start from the bottom and work up the tree why go for the CP Course straight away that way you will beable to make contacts and network on the way up will take a while but you will beable to establish a good name for yourself aslong as you work hard and dont piss about!!

    Hello Conf',
    the same advice as the others have given I'm afraid. Don't throw good money away on a full-on CP course with the hope of going to hostile environments and mixing with the deep-tan boys because without experience you won't get there. All you'll get is depressed and broke.
    Spend a fraction of your hard-saved cash on a decent security driving course as has been suggested or a good DS course and use the badges you get with them to look more realistically for work that will not only be within your reach but will get you the experience and contacts you will need to move up the ladder. I don't know what qualifies me to give advice to be honest . I've had three badges over the past years now, culminating in a CP but have been scrabbling around at the coal-face now for what seems like years doing whatever comes my way, hoping for that elusive break that will see me earn my stripes properly as a CP but the barriers I'm finding are proving just too tiring to get through. My last attempt at 'moving up the ladder' will be this year when I try and go back into driving which I did in the begining but moved away from, seduced by the dark side, and oblivious to the others who said not to listen to the siren calls....I'll do a good driving course somewhere and try and get back into the comfy seat again where my old bones can rest and keep the heater on.
    Whatever you do decide though, be the best at it you can, and if you do that , the work will come....eventually and perhaps agonisingly slowly but that's what this business is about...hurry up and wait. Perhaps I'll see you beside me one day , with your principal in the back ? You'll know me...i'll be the one with the radio tuned to Radio 4. Very good luck . Just don't rush your fences....

    Try networking mate, thats how most people find their work not like Yosser hughes "gimme a job I can do that" try all the usual companies and all your ex military mates any others you have worked with or know, There is a job section in here keep an eye on that but always the best way is networking. There are a lot of people looking for work so you probably won't get a great response to that question. Good luck mate
