im registared with jobsite to and yes they are great at sending you out job offers but how many other hundreds of sparks are they also sending too.
i have followed up a few of the jobs and usually recieve an email later to say - due to overwelming response bla bla bla

it is tough to find work at the minute and any work that i have come across ( i subbie into larger firms) is paying below the rate

Sorry to but in guys, but are any of you on the books with the agency - Sterling Solutions??

We used get most of our agency sparks from there. Havn't used them for a while now due to lower workload but they had a good rep with the guys we had.

Sterling Group - the base for contractors

:D

Ii was in this situation in the 1990s to early 2002 but please do not think i am taking the **** with a family of four at the time

i actually spent five quid on a rubber stamp pad and printed off a load of flyers sent the kids around various housing estates offering electrical and other household services. it was slow but at least we survived
do not believe me what about the number of pizza leaflets you get ???????

good luck to you all
i will say a prayer for you all

cheers
