By David BeattieThe job market is still hard to crack, but a number of things could make the job market a little more bearable for those looking to fill the gap.
One is that some jobs have a greater appeal than others.
And the most appealing ones, according to job market expert and lecturer at Oxford University, Professor Matthew Goodwin, include bartending, service jobs and hospitality roles.
So what are some of the jobs that are actually harder to get?
According to Goodwin, the most difficult ones to fill are those with the lowest pay.
In other words, there’s less demand for them in the current economic climate, which means that there’s a greater likelihood that they will go unapplied, or the job may not be the best fit for someone.
So, what’s the good news?
The good news is that it may not necessarily mean that you’ll be able to find a job in the future.
It may also depend on your personal circumstances.
If you are not looking for a full-time job, Goodwin explains, there are a few things you can do to try to find the job.
Firstly, Goodwin says, it may be easier to work in restaurants, cafes and bars.
You may also be able use online platforms such as jobs.com and LinkedIn, which offer you a range of job vacancies to choose from.
If your preferred location is more remote, Goodwin advises you to look for jobs in places that have a good range of restaurants and cafes.
“In the cities, you may find the most competitive positions, but they’re often not very well known,” Goodwin says.
“If you find one in a remote location, it will make it more likely that it will be an attractive job.”
Another thing to consider is the kind of work you’re looking for.
Goodwin says that the ideal job description for a barista is “very creative, and they do a lot of interesting things”.
But he adds that “the key is to find someone who’s a good fit for your skill set.”
He also suggests that you take a look at the types of jobs that bartenders do.
If the job description says “barman”, Goodwin advises that it’s likely you will find someone that fits the profile of the job you’re seeking.
“Barman jobs are often low-skilled, which can mean that it can be harder to find good-paying positions,” he says.
The last thing to be aware of is that bartending is often an entry-level job, meaning that people looking to work as a bartender have lower qualifications.
It’s also important to note that bartends work from home.
So if you’re considering a career in bartending and you’re not sure if a job is right for you, Goodwin suggests that the best thing to do is to talk to your bar manager about the possibilities of a new job.
“I think it’s a great idea to ask a manager,” he explains.
“If you don’t like the answer, they can always look into it.”
