LONDON—For the past two years, I’ve been conducting a field interview in the British capital, which I had never before done.
The job is simple.
I have to take a position at a job-search website.
I get a salary, then I do my interview and the interviewers then take my pay.
The experience has changed my life.
The job has changed the lives of a lot of people who were previously unemployable.
It has made them more likely to get jobs in a new industry or career.
What is it like?
The job market has changed.
In recent years, employers have made a concerted effort to hire people who are at least 21 years old, with experience in a range of industries, such as IT, retail, hospitality, advertising, retail banking, IT, finance, construction, healthcare, and hospitality.
Many people I spoke to, from young people to their parents, were worried about their jobs.
I knew there were some who had no job prospects, and were desperate for employment.
But what I didn’t know was that the young people who worked in the jobs I interviewed had become more likely in the years that followed to be employed, in the UK as a whole, and in different parts of the country.
For many, the experience has left an indelible mark on their life.
For some, it has helped them achieve a career in their chosen field.
When I first started interviewing in 2011, the job market was a bit tough, with few jobs available.
Now, more than half of the jobs available in the job-seeking field are in hospitality and retail, according to the Employment Research and Skills Agency (ERSA).
I asked interviewers what they felt was their biggest risk in their job search.
The majority of people I talked to said that the risk of losing their job was the number of interviews they had to make in the first few weeks.
“The job market is so unpredictable that you don’t really know what’s going to happen, what the prospects are,” said Rachel Darnell, who was interviewed by a recruitment company for a job in the City of London in June 2012.
“I feel the most scared about the job interview.”
She and her partner had been looking for a new job in London for the past year.
They were nervous about the number and length of interviews, as they did not want to lose their job.
She said that it was one of the most stressful experiences of her life.
“The worst thing is that I’m not able to leave the interview room.
I can’t leave and leave and see the end result of what I’ve done,” she said.
Some interviewers were not so lucky.
They said they felt that they were wasting time and resources on the job interviews, which they did because they did feel that they had lost a job.
They felt they were being left out of the job hunt.
Darnell said that, because she was interviewed in person, she was the most anxious she had ever been.
There was a sense of uncertainty about the future.
She was worried about losing her job, because it was not clear whether her salary would be sufficient to cover her living costs.
I also met a man who was in his 30s and had been in a retail job for several years.
He had had an interview with a company and was in the process of applying for another one.
He said that he was anxious about the jobs prospects, because he had not found a new one in his field.
“I think that we’re all still a bit confused,” he said.
“You know, we have jobs, but what do we get for it?”
“You’re a new person,” said another interviewee.
One interviewee said that they felt like they had been put on a boat by the industry.
“We’re all kind of in this boat together,” he told me.
“I feel like I’m floating somewhere, but I’m kind of sinking.
I’m afraid to get out of this boat.”
What do you do if you get a job offer?
I am one of about 5,000 jobseekers who applied to the ERSA Job Centre last month, according and statistics from the agency.
A typical interviewee interviewed is an 18-year-old who has been out of school for at least a year.
He has been in the labour market for at most two years.
According to the statistics, job seekers who do not have any formal education are more likely than others to apply to the Job Centre, as are people who have recently graduated.
Job seekers who have had at least two years of full-time study are more than twice as likely as others to get a position, the statistics show.
