    I update my CV on jobserve and wait for the phone to start ringing. Usually then have to disable the CV a week later to stop the phone from ringing.

    I don't use it much to actively look for advertised roles as there seems to be a lot more going on which isn't necessarily advertised.

    Well, to round things off (having started the thread) I've now got a new job! I had an interview a week ago, got offered the same day and start on Monday. The only down-side is that it's only until the end of November. On the upside, the day after accepting the role I was offered another position closer to home on more money and to start whenever I wanted!!!!!

    The first position was via Jobserve, the second via an ex-colleague

    I apply for roles on Jobserve probably like anyone else, but to be honest probably 1 in 30 maybe more actually gets in touch, seems a waste of time to be honest for me.

    Seems a lot that. Over what time period do you apply for 30 gigs? A week, a month?
