I thoroughly enjoyed my last job hunt as it got me out of where i was. Without the hunt there would have been no hope and without hope i would have ended up....well actually i don't even want to imagine that!
Ive always found job hunting pretty easy but then there are many role in my industry.
First things first, get a full profile on LinkeIn. Ive found my last two jobs from there without even having to look - plus consultancy fees for contractual work.
Secondly, post your CV to job sites, loads of them. You will get recruiters searching you out rather than the other way around. Speak to colleagues about trusted specialist recruiters. Dont be fussy at the start and take as many interviews and you can physically handle so that you are practices when you get the one you really want.
