  1. Sticky Thread Sticky: I just need to get two references ...

    Been out now for 3 months - 1 month was moving house and sat on my hole for the last 2. Usual story, Jobserved to death, and now dealing with the cretins.

  2. Sticky Thread Sticky: Security Clearance (SC) Q&A Read first before asking questions

    Please find below an accumulation of questions that have featured on some of the many reptitive questions about SC. Maybe by putting them in a stickie and adding when we get new ones we can bat some of the drudgery off. I have given canned answers from what I read on the forum but you know how...

  6. Sticky Thread Sticky: Behaviour in the Professional Forums

    I have noticed an increase in squabbling and bickering in the Professional forums of late. I am not amused. I do not care who starts the squabbling. I will finish it by banning all participants. The more persistant the squabbling the longer the ban. Feel free to disagree and correct but...

  1. Renewal regret

    One month into contract renewal and all change - for the worst - much worse. I put the feelers out and there is the potential for a new gig (different agent). I'm supposed to be building a long term relationship with current agent, should I approach them first and tell them I want a move, maybe if...

Would you speak to the agent about the new role, or fear that you will spook him and the client putting...

    Chaps and chapesses, I am sure you have had the situation before where you do an interview, it goes fine and an offer seems likely. Then you get a call from the agent saying they want you, but would like to work for 10% less. Less than the rate that was agreed before you did the interview. You...
