    Job Path

    Anyone with experience of the new welfare job seeker scheme called Job Path replaces Intreo.
    You have to attend one on one interviews 3 times a week until you find a job.
    They will look for the job for you and attend interviews .Then when you get a job they call the employer
    to check how you are working .

    One on One interviews with whom?
    There was some issues with outsourcing this to private companies when they were asking candidates were they likely to engage in criminal activity!

    Another stupid idea from government. Provide well paid jobs and people will work. The only "jobs" available at present are mickey mouse minimum wage and CE nonsense. People aren't "slackers" that's just the establishment line. They want to provide a wage for their family and make a contribution towards society pay them properly ffs.

    After the recession, millions of unemployed workers faced a wrenching dilemma: hold out for a job as good as the one they left, or take a lower-level position, often outside their field.

    A new study surprisingly concludes it's better to wait, at least for mid-level workers. It found employers seeking office workers were more likely to call unemployed applicants with relevant experience than those with similar backgrounds who recently took a lower-level position.
    The unemployed should hold out for better job, study says

    There is a small minority of slackers. I remember when unemployment here was around 3% in the early noughties and there were labour shortages in loads of sectors. There were people who were still unemployed and had been since they were in school with me. One of them was taken on by the company I was working in.

    The chap was a disaster. He latched on to me and would keep me chatting the whole time if I let him. He stayed all day Monday, left early on Tuesday, turned up a couple of hours late on Wednesday, disappeared at lunchtime on Thursday.

    Needless to say, he'd got the PFO by Friday.

    Who are "they"? Will " they" accompany the candidate and attend the job interview? What gives then the right to call the employer? several issues come to mind:

    Who will conduct the 3 interviews per week?
    What is the aim of this? If it is some form of training have those conducting the interview the appropriate skills, experience and competence to deliver training?
    The individual's rights and protection under a raft of legislation, not least data protection.
    What type of employer would permit a candidate to be accompanied at interview in this manner?
    How intrusive will, the demands on the employer for progress reports, be?
    Is there financial inducement for the employer ?
