There are many things that one can do to improve your chances of finding work.Re-training is one solution, but is retraining the best solution? what do you actually retrain as. It is all well and good retraining as a plumber or a electrician but are there many plumber’s jobs in Liverpool at the present?

The construction and building industries at the moment are dead on their feet, and retraining as anything related to the construction industry seems a little aimless, but is does not mean that the building industry will pick up in the years to come.

I am thinking of retraining as web designer or programmer, but at the moment I am focused on online advertising, Google AdSense clicks and so on. I am polishing up my SEO skills and putting my spare time to some good use, and that’s what I would advise to anyone out there who is sat about doing nothing with their time.
