Job search

Direct.gov: finding a job provides a fairly basic job seekers' overview, which may jog the memory of anyone who has been with the same employer for some time.

The Guardian also offers an online careers service which is well worth a look. 

Rich in downloads, e-books and online since 2005, the New Life Network provides a whole host of alternatives to merely seeking more of the same.

However to speed up the return on your investments, it pays to know your digital tools:

jobs.ac.uk provides an excellent guide to using RSS feeds, for instance, bringing information directly to you and far faster than by e-mail.

Social media too, can cut your efforts to the chase:

upload your profile to the professional networking site LinkedIN 
follow Twitjobs (jobs advertised through Twitter plus many more)
or sign up for gist.com which aggregates information about contacts you may be approaching for work.

Expect these tips to change too, because social media moves fast!

Finally, once you've opened that oh so important door to a new job or business, try Businessballs for some great tips on securing a sale or selection. Good luck!
