Everyone from KPMG to the TUC say the job market is shrinking, but there are still plenty of opportunities out there for those who take positive action.

If you demonstrate to an employer just how you are going to add value to their organisation, there are jobs available. Problem is, how do you create that dynamic CV that creates the vital first impression and gets you the interview? How do you develop an interview technique that allows you to control the interview and negotiate the right job at the right price?

The solution comes as one company is expanding in a new and innovative way. 121careers.co.uk has launched a website specifically aimed at all those in the workforce who are in need of careers advice because they are being forced to consider their future careers, or for those who are striving to achieve more from their careers. Through their website www.121careers.co.uk, and using the latest Audio/Visual technology, 121careers deliver high quality career management to clients throughout the world, offering private, online advice and guidance sessions supported by a comprehensive on-line self-help package of tools and resources, from the comfort of clients own homes, office, or anywhere with good access to the internet.

‘The key to the service has been harnessing the latest webcam technology’, says Marketing Director, Neil McMillan. ‘We can now offer professional careers guidance at the click of a mouse. And as it is internet based via webcam, the price is affordable to all.’
‘It’s easy to use. Our clients choose which adviser they want from a panel on the 121careers.co.uk web site. They choose when they want to receive their on-line advice sessions, and where they will receive them. They can now be literally, anywhere in the world. In an office, their home or wherever is convenient and private. Most importantly, they pay some 70% less than traditional careers advice for the highest quality careers advice from industry professionals, all of whom are members of the Institute of Careers Guidance (ICG).’

Ian Bourne, Director, who has led two careers companies, been a director of two Connexions partnerships and Chief Executive of the Careers Services National Association, says ‘All that is needed is a broadband connection and a webcam and the 121careers.co.uk virtual career lab allows the Career Adviser and client to communicate as if they were in the same room. Full two-way audio and video enables the adviser and client both to see and hear each other. The shared whiteboard means the adviser and client can view and edit images, text and exercises together. With the widespread availability of access to the Internet by broadband from home, businesses, schools and hotels, the service is considerably more accessible than traditional career management programmes.’

Operations Director, Phil Isaac, who was instrumental in developing the technological solution, commented: ‘Apart from the environmental advantages through the reduction in travel, the cost of Career Guidance via the internet is kept to an absolute minimum and this opens up access to quality career management to everybody who wants to achieve their full potential. The key to the quality of our approach is that we only use fully qualified, experienced professional advisers that are members of the ICG (the Institute of Career Guidance). We also have no affiliations with any employers or educational establishments and so can offer totally impartial advice.’

A sister company provides the same level of professional careers advice and guidance to students, both in the UK and throughout the world via the 5000 strong, International Schools network, through the WorldClassCareers.co.uk web site.
