As of December 2017, UK employment figures had dropped by 56,000. This caused many economists to start warning that the UK jobs market had peaked. However, with unemployment remaining at record low levels and the jobs market itself diversifying thanks to the influence of tech and globalisation there is still a lot to be positive about. So, if you’re currently looking for a new role then it’s still possible to find your dream job. You may just have to make some adjustments in the way that you go looking for it.
Networking is a tried and tested way to help find new job opportunities.

Social networking via platforms such as LinkedIn and Twitter can be just as valuable in terms of extending your connections and creating opportunities as going to events.
As well as engaging with social networking, there are many other online tools that will make it easier to get ahead.
