Enter our job hunting survey for a chance to win a £20 Amazon voucher

Finding work

It’s no secret that our job hunting habits have changed. No longer is registering at the local job centre the only way to find work with those seeking new employment turning to more imaginative sources to find work.

Some will browse the internet through search engines, company sites and on-line job agencies. Others will go down the more traditional route of registering with recruitment agencies and job centres. Younger candidates will no doubt tap into their social media expertise by hunting around informally on Facebook, Twitter and Linkedln. And many of us will simply ask around.

Building has put together a comprehensive survey to discover more about your job hunting techniques. Whether you’re a graduate architect, qualified QS, manager at a big contractor we are keen to find out how and how often you search for work.  

The multiple choice questionnaire will only take a few minutes with one lucky participant winning a £20 Amazon voucher. And don’t worry, your identity will remain anonymous!

Closing date for the survey is 1 April. To complete the survey click here.
