Nice Work – If You Can Get It

No Jobs – Get this Book

Found a sun faded copy of the book “NICE WORK if you can get it” by Guy Dauncey which judging by the sticker on the bottom left corner and stamp [Careers Office LIBRARY Reference Only > Jobs] on the inside cover, I acquired sometime after its publish date of 1983.

Nice Work if u=you can get it

How to be positive about unemployment

The book – ISBN 0 86082 357 1 – was heralded as the non-working man’s Bible that preached how to be positive about unemployment and was dedicated to the individuals and groups all over the country who were refusing to accept unemployment passively.

Recession Proof Jobs

Whilst browsing a variety of bizzare  “list” sites we came across this list of  jobs that will boom during recession.  Imagine our delight when we realised it was a starting point for a post about unpopular jobs and grim working evironments.

A while back a post on the subject of working as a mystery shopper deemed to it to be a crap job and now we have the dubious pleasure in bringing you a comprehensivc list of jobs that may also be wave the famous Pasty Muncher tag of “crap”.

The list predicts growth of  jobs in splendid UK  instiutions such as prisons, job centres and schools highlighting the growing need to retrain, redeploy the work force and bang up the unemployed – prisoners are not counted as “out of work”

Little wonder up there with the worst of the worst are recruitment agents – another dreadful profession job that benefits from being recession proof – even thought there are less jobs – the annoying gob-shites still talk up each and every opportunity no matter how dismal and demeaning – and increasingly enjoy repeat commissions as the trend for temporary staff and short contract work during economic slowdowns.

Top Job  – Plastic Surgeon

Apparantly the prospect of losing a job or failing to find new work can lead to desperate measures with some people becoming convinced that by changing their appearance they can position themselves better in the job market.

Rhino Pasty anyone?

Nice, i think things might have changed a bit since 1983, but the article is right on topic. I’m sure everyone would want to make plastic surgeon money, but its just not in the cards.

Thanks for sharing valuable information about “NICE WORK if you can get it”. Though there are many sources to know the latest openings but job search also depends upon the efforts in the right direction. First of all one should fix up personal parameters to search a job.

The earth throughout its history on average was about 20 F hotter than it is today.

We’re in a cold spell still from the last ice age. Global Warming is returning it to normal and hopefully it’ll drown the bastards in Florida.

Work is tough to find everywhere these days. It seems like any job is a good job.
