Talent Spotting

"Surfing a good career move"

"A major trend is for job hunters to have personal websites - effectively online CVs - that contain videos of themselves or projects they have worked on. They also contain blogs in which the job hunter seeks to establish their 'brand'.

Matt Pontin, recruitment manager for roading firm Fulton Hogan, said the online presence turns hunter into hunted.

"People are using the internet to create their own brand and their own proposition online with either a blog or their own space or webpage. They are showcasing their own skills online and giving employers the opportunity to hunt for them. It's developing into an online community that is tapped into as and when employers need skills," says Pontin."

I've just tried "roadworker blog" on Google.

It's only a matter of time.

I wonder if they do a pie allowance and de luxe shovel handles...
