I'm trying to set up a website/ blog which will have a membership forum. The idea is to help anyone seeking a job to build up the skills and attitude to get a job.
An important aspect is to keep up the motivation of those who are unemployed or made redundant.
Content ranges from straight training how to do something to quite cynical articles, eg consider those running temp agencies as pimps selling your body, skills etc.
The articles will be in UK English, but I will be writing for an International market.
Long term I plan to turn the posts into an ebook and training course.
Who am I?
I am a retired further education lecturer, (equivalent to American community college). I live in Richmond, west of London, in a really nice area within walking distance of the River Thames.
I'm noted to have a quirky sense of humour and having 'off the wall' ideas.
I'm married, have three grown up children. I enjoy walking, swimming, photography and whizzing around in my Mazda Bongo camper van, (similar in size to a VW camper), just back from a month's trip in Scotland.
I'm reasonably skilled in web techniques.
