  3. Phyl Drennan Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:10 pm

    I just want employers to stop looking at the length of time I’ve been unemployed, and start to look at what I can offer.

    All I want is a fair chance.

    • Daisy Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:33 pm

      I would like employers to look at the progress I have made in previous jobs rather than looking at the gaps in my employment. Living in a seasonal town, it is not easy to find/keep a full time job.

    • mairead dempsey Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 6:15 pm

      Hear hear!!

    • wendy baker Friday, 20 Dec, 2013 at 3:51 pm

      well said

    • Giles Skidmore Wednesday, 1 Jan, 2014 at 5:22 pm

      I am with you. I wish They would see we are trying to get a job by going on courses and applying for things. We are all tarred with the same brush just because we are unemployed. Some of us really want a job and need to work !!

  4. Elzbieta Bielec Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:11 pm

    I would like to get back into employment that pays a wage enough for me to pay my bills and allow me to have the odd luxury. I would like to get feedback regarding my application and interview so that I am aware where I need to gain additional points. Finally I would like there to be more people in employment and people who have not had employment be given the chance and opportunity to gain skills.

    • Paul Ferry Friday, 20 Dec, 2013 at 5:46 pm

      I quite agree like to get feedback regarding an application and interview so that I am aware where I need to gain additional points. I would like the employers to be my previous employment experience and given a chance to prove my skills.

  5. Paul Longhurst Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:11 pm

    I would like the World to be a peaceful place, and to see people with smiles on their faces once more and having respect for each other and for each others’ beliefs.

  6. Michael Lewis Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:12 pm

    I feel a change of career might be on the cards in 2014, as 2013 has been a struggle after getting a job that really didn’t deliver what it promised. However, what is really important is improved health, continued loving relationship and long term happiness and moving house. 2014 you’ve got a lot to deliver, please don’t let me down like 2013 did, with the sudden death of a loved one, ill health and a job that turned out to be a sham.

  7. ceri Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:12 pm

    I dont just want a job I want a career

    • Franky Nyakture Saturday, 14 Dec, 2013 at 12:32 am

      There is a limitations everything in life. The time sow and time to reap. 2013, was my year to sow. I know ow I will surely start reaping big time in 2014.

  8. Amrita Pal Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:12 pm

    I want a new job. I want to be given a chance to prove I am good enough and not be told that I’m not hired because I don’t have enough experience. I want a job so I can help my parents out and started saving with my boyfriend for our upcoming wedding.

  9. Peter Box Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:13 pm

    Easy, for the economy to move forward creating more jobs across all industries, enabling peole to find roles they enjoy and further their careers. as well as allowing increases in salaries and packages.

    • Samim Aalam Sunday, 15 Dec, 2013 at 5:27 am

      I want a new and fabulous career,where i can feel free and earn more money which makes my life easy and comfortable,and for all may this 014 brings a good luck for all those people who are searching there dream job.

  10. David vogel Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:13 pm

    I would like a job that will provide me with a challenge and also allow my skills to be exploited for the benefit of my new employer. The country is starting to recover after a bitter few years and I want to be part of its success moving forward.

  11. Brendon cooper Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:13 pm

    I want a job that excites me and makes a difference in other peoples lives, one that helps me feed my family as well as a job that will allow me to live a bit., laugh a bit and save a bit.

  12. Tony Farmborough Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:14 pm

    A new job / career, that will see me safe and secure for my family.
    And peace in the world – Oh and as it is Christmas good will to all mankind.

  13. Filippo Mazzarino Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:14 pm

    I would like to end this struggling and find a job to let me help with my family.

  14. Dave Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:14 pm

    Get in to a role I enjoy, that makes the most of my talents. Just like the “good old days”

  15. Sandra Chastey Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:15 pm

    I would love to wake up in the morning, smile and say I am going to work today. Loving my job, the work I do and the people I work with is my dream.
    And so it should be for everyone if we could really choose what we want to be doing all day every day, not having to worry about earning enough just to exist.
    To truly live each day in JOY.

  16. Edward Davies Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:15 pm

    A career that I can finally enjoy, something that I look forward to going to in the morning and coming home again in the evening with a sense of satisfaction that I have achieved something, no matter how small.

  17. Donna Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:15 pm

    My plan to take over the world has been scuppered by my inability to find the perfect job. I have the cape, I would appreciate a little helping hand in the application and confidence department.

  18. Darren Gray Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:15 pm

    Career/Job stability, my full Motorcycle License and a holiday for the first time in Thirteen Years!

  19. Simon Haigh Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:16 pm

    i want a career that allows me to leave my mark on the world

  20. Philip South Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:16 pm

    I want a job which pays £300k a year. Where I have to work for 2 hours a day, get an hour for lunch and two 15 minute breaks.
    A job which gives me 258 days a year holiday and unlimited worldwide travel.
    A job which gives me the company car of my choice. One I can change every week if required.
    A job where I’m the boss and nobody can argue with my decisions.
    Does this kind if job appear on TotalJobs?? I’ll spend years looking for it!!

    • sandie Saturday, 14 Dec, 2013 at 7:48 pm

      I think it is time your grew up and got a proper job and maybe try to work for a living.
      I just want a permanent job.

      • Colin Meade Saturday, 21 Dec, 2013 at 8:26 am

        Well said.
        Its people like that who seem to think looking for a job is a joke but some of us need good jobs to pay bills and feed our familys,its obvious to me they havent had to strugle or scrimp and save just to put food on the table.Some of us have had good jobs in the past and through redundancy ended up with nothing and now have the VERY hard task of climbing up and trying to get a foot back on the employment lader.I personaly have extensive knowledge and years of experience within my field but just cant seem to get my foot on that elusive ladder but I wont give uo hope 2014 might be the year when that ladder stops right at my feet…

    • Ghazwan Antoine Tuesday, 17 Dec, 2013 at 11:10 am

      FX – Foreign Exchange
      Open an account with any broker / put £20,000 deposit, then BUY 3,000,000 USD/CHF and leave it for 1 year, you don’t need to work even that 2 hour a day you mention. … by the end of the year close your position and take the profit … this would be between 400k-550k … wallla

  21. Joanne Davies Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:16 pm

    I would just love to see myself in the job that I want in 2014.

  22. Antonio J. Calvillo Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:16 pm

    I want to find a place where I can help to do the things better, where my workmates will be honest and good persons and where I will be able to develop myself.

    Best Regards

  23. Hannah Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:17 pm

    I LOVE living in London – the history, the opportunities, the exhibitions, the food, the theatre…. the list goes on.

    However, I think we’d all be that bit happier every day if people were more friendly and happy.

    During the Olympics the vibe was so much more positive – people were talking doing the unheard of like talking to each other on the tube :)

    I would like to see that same Olympic atmosphere in London in 2014 (if it’s possible without Mo Farrah and Usain Bolt!).

  24. Emily Barnicoat Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:17 pm

    Having studied hard this year to get my PM qualifications I would like to really progress my career next year. Its all every well seeing on the page but having a chance to put it all into action would be amazing!

  25. Erika Blazic Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:18 pm

    I would like to see more investments into my country, which will lead to new employments, also I would like to see more opportunities for my daughter to win some scholarship abroad….I would like to give more help to others, just to see more smiling faces instead of concerned. I would like to see more peace in my country as well as wellbeing all around the world.

  26. Ben Hughes Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:18 pm

    I would love to see myself joining a respectful company and be in a permanent, full time position. I would love to be seen as a good citizen! I would love to see my girlfriend give birth to our 1st baby without any problems! (Fingers crossed!!!) and I would also love to win this price! Hehe. Many thanks hope to hear back!!<3

  27. Michael Smithers Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:18 pm

    I have tempt and covered maternity leave for the past 5 years and now what I would like is a permanent full time job where I can settle and show my employer the experience I have gain, being able to hit the floor running.
    I am seeking a challenging role within a progressive company that would utilise the experience and knowledge already gained. Failing that… a lottery win!

  28. samantha arthur Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:18 pm

    I want a career change, im a university graduate working in a call centre and want change that will challenge me to use my brain again!

  29. Duncan Inwood Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:19 pm

    I want to see recruitment revolutionized.
    How can an employer judge a potential employee by a bit of paper?
    Why do I do have to travel miles and miles for interviews when we have the technologies we have today?

    • Steve Elliott Saturday, 14 Dec, 2013 at 4:27 pm

      I would willingly travel miles and miles in order to talk to people rather that keep getting rejected by a computer all the time. I have 44 years worth of experience in customer services, yet the “surveys” that you have pass on application sites in order to be able to send your “bit of paper” to the company reject me. How can “technologies” know me?

  30. Harvey Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:19 pm

    I would like to build a career instead of a job which will enable me to have a nice future .

  31. Emma Blackman Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:19 pm

    The thing that would make 2014 a better year for me would to get my life in order and get a job that’s in the clacton on sea area do I could easily get to it. A job that helps me out in the long run and gives me support along the way and sees the potential in me not just what they see with their eyes but what they see in me.

  32. Alexandra Gilbert Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:20 pm

    I would like to see me starting a new career and learning more about the working world, I’d love to have some more experience and just know what I 100% would like out of life and make people happy!
    I would also like to see me using an iPad Air :)

  33. Luke liddiard Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:20 pm

    I’d like to see not so Great Britain out of the EU and pumping its money into the economy to get our farmers and butchers ect working again.instead of being a country that resources from abroad, thus giving more apprentiships and jobs to people from here in the uk. But I suppose our hard working mp’s need the 11% pay rise more than us seeking work aye.

  34. Colin Wood Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:20 pm

    I would like a job that allows me to look after my family and visit my family in New Zealand. They moved away 3 years ago and I miss my brother, especially at this time of year. He’s always been there for me and I would love to surprise him by visiting. I just need a chance and I have so much to offer.

  35. John Chapman Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:20 pm

    I would like to work, or alternatively use my time to create revenue streams for the next 3 years. After this I would like to be occupied perhaps part-time. Then RETIRE, so that I can build my own house by the sea or a lake or a river, travel, conduct music or play my French Horn with orchestras and music groups. I would like 2014 to be the STARTING POINT!

  36. Chris savage Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:21 pm

    Looking to get into the oil and gas industry, but no one will take me as I have no offshore experience. I’m looking to work as a radio operator a position I’ve held for over 13 years in the armed forces. I am more than qualified to fill this role. After being made redundant and unemployed for the last 2 months I’m hoping that Santa can give me the opportunity I need to make 2014 a great year!!

  37. Niall Hoy Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:21 pm

    I would love a head start in starting my own mobile vehicle valeting company, and how to keep it successful.

  38. Martin Jarvis Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:21 pm

    Make a positive career move , with better prospects for future development and to be appreciated more. Would be nice to be able to have weekends for me and do more skydiving !!!

  39. Matthew Micaleff Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:21 pm

    I have so much to offer in reality and will achieve results required by any employer but employers don’t seem to judge people on this anymore they want to pay the lowest they can get away with and with so many people without a job the good old values are always overlooked.

  40. Andrew Hyland Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:22 pm

    I would like to see more employer lead initiatives that are targeted at getting more people not currently in employment or education in to the workplace

  41. stacey jones Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:22 pm

    I want to be able to stand on my own two feet and look after myself,be totally independant and learn new skills to find a job I’d enjoy. :)

  42. Jordan Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:22 pm

    I would really appreciate any working opportunity finding it hard to find a job and this is a great opportunity for me thanks jordan

  43. Ray Kaimbacher Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:22 pm

    Hi, this would be an awesome prize to win!
    Definitely the career Coaching and the CV makeover would be a fantastic step for me to move in to the right direction. I am currently wanting to get back in to the Job market and advise would be greatly apprectiated.

    But the main Focus for the coming year is to find a Job that pays for my daily life like for almost everyone in this Country. Plus, I have just bought a house which makes it even more difficult.

    Looking Forward to hear back from you,
    Kind regards,

  44. Debbie Thompson Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:23 pm

    I would like a role where my employer appreciates both my talent and committment. That with a good work life balance would be great… “Professionalism goes both ways !!”

  45. Cheyanne Turner Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:23 pm

    Constantly, I’m browsing for jobs. Having a job isn’t just about the money but also enjoying it and feeling comfortable with your surroundings. Work should be a happy environment, with challenges ahead and goals to reach. I want those things, something to wake up and look forward to in the morning. A job that will put a smile on my face and better my children for the future. I could give them the world, other than just myself. The word is a competitive place and it’s really hard but I think honestly hard work and goals such as running up that career ladder is what makes life worth living. Jobs keep the world moving forward and creating new opportunities for others. Everyone in my eyes deserves a chance, literally I believe everyone. It’s only fair. You have to come out of the rain to see the sun.

  46. Lynn Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:23 pm

    I would like to see that the companies would move up hearing impaired (profound deaf) people up the ladder according to their merits and make sure that the companies are fair in terms of not ignoring the hearing impaired employees just in sake of being easier to move hearing people regarding the use of phones etc. We should be able to do this in 2014..we are in modern age, aren’t we ?

  47. Daniel Turner Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:24 pm

    I would like a career that will help me move onwards and upwards. One that will help me and my wife to be have an awesome life together once we are married in June 2014, so we can afford to have kids and possibly a Dog! Woof!

  48. Robyn Vickers Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:24 pm

    I would love to have a secured full time job which will allow me to save financially for a child and to build our dream house in the woods away from the city life so our children could grow up away from city life and enjoy the countryside life that I was brought up with.

  49. Syeda Khanom Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:24 pm

    I would like to secure employment in a well paid job.

  50. terri Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:24 pm

    I’d love to be able to find the right career for me or a sustainable job that would lead me to the career path I want. I already have in mind what I want to do but it’s just getting the right first steps to do it, so I’d like to see more available jobs in horse care or equine care. My main goal is to be a full time and qualified riding instructor to lead to something even bigger. Life is too short to be stuck in a dead end job you hate so get out there, do me, be more!!! :)

  51. James Scanlan Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:25 pm

    I would like a job that will provide me with new challenges and also allow my skills to be exploited for the benefit of my new employer. I have many years hands on experience and feel I can contribute to enhancing my future employers status and add value to the business

  52. Phil Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:25 pm

    A chance to have a career that pays well to live on, is something that I’d look forward to doing each time I wake up and to be able to treat my other half for staying with me through these past two year.

  53. Edita Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:25 pm

    Much more positive year than this one…I would like to see people using their potential, being respected and getting what they deserve. I also would like to see the recruitment process being more transparent and that employers provide a honest feedback to all candidates and that there is a fairness when it comes to the selection process. I hope that 2014 will be a great year for all of us.

  54. Miss Reagan Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:25 pm

    Do what you love to do and give it your very best. Whether it’s business or football, or the theater, or any field. If you don’t love what you’re doing and you can’t give it your best, get out of it. Life is too short. We grow up to fast,

  55. Justin Alexander Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:26 pm

    I would love to get a job that I actually look forward to when I get up every morning, but to be honest I would settle for something that just pays the bills at the moment, and I can work from it from there.

  56. Flemming Lord Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:26 pm

    I would like automation of voice recognition software, speech synthesis and artificial intelligence to free people from the misery of working in call centres by replacing them with computers.

  57. Pratima Maharjan Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:26 pm

    I just don’t want a job, but wish for a career to continue in future. I want a career that pays all my bills and bit of a saving for future. I want the employers to provide me a concrete feedback after my interviews and not say that I was almost perfect only that some other candidate had slightly more experience that I did, hence was not selected. I am ready to go an extra mile to achieve the goal but I want employers to provide me a chance to prove it.

  58. Muzakkir Hussain Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:26 pm

    If i had the oppurtunity to win this competition i would not only for my self but for other people in various countries i would like to share my knowledge that i have learned wit them and also if i got a new job i would like to share my knowledge with my fellow team workers so i and also they could learn something from me and i can learn from them. Also i would help my family out with any problems and also help young relatives and family friends to achive a brighter future.

  59. David Edwards Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:27 pm

    I would like to win this competition and kick start the new year with an amazing boost to my job hunting prospects.

  60. Sam Milsome Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:27 pm

    In 2014 I wish to see myself ascend and break the shackles of being terminally without employment. I am freelance but in this day and age it just seems to be another word for jobless. Since May this year I quit my soulless retail job and moved to London with grand hopes, only for them to be dashed come August.

    Since then it has been a battle to stay afloat and it has honestly ground me down. My current laptop is on its last legs and I genuinely cannot afford to get a new one, so once this is gone, so will my career, in effect.

    I do not wish to go back to selling newspapers, that job almost killed me inside; onwards and upwards in 2014, for it can’t get any worse, right? Anyway, what I’d like to see next year is me starting my life, being content in a job that I don’t hate and actually applying the talents I have.

    Thank you.

  61. David Burgess-Joyce Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:27 pm

    Ah, world peace, more puppies and kittens in the workplace, trousers that don’t lose their crease in the rain, the abolition of skinny jeans and Jennifer Aniston’s sudden desire for a bespectacled, slightly balding, 49 year old guy from Merseyside! All these things I want in 2014. Other than Jennifer, I doubt any will actually happen, but in their stead I’d love a job where I make a real difference as opposed to one where action-less meetings are prevalent. Because, as we all know, meetings are where minutes are taken and hours are lost!

  62. Andrew Windsor Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:27 pm

    I would like the opportunity to share my knowledge and help that person to grow aswell as develop my career with what I can offer an employer. Positive attitude with a positive mind.

  63. Laura Furnival Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:28 pm

    I would love to have a job which meant I could spend more time with my son and partner, my little boy Reggie means more to me than anything and he’s growing up so quickly. I would also love to earn enough to take him on holiday, perhaps Disneyland, as he’s never had a holiday. I pride myself in knowing I have worked hard to get where I am, but being a full-time working mother, does have it’s downsides :-( here’s to a Happy Christmas one and all! :-) x

  64. Simon Clark Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:28 pm

    I want a new job where I am challenged, valued and respected, oh and paid regularly. In return I will give my all to my employer and colleagues.

  65. Tsvety Hristanova Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:28 pm

    I had an amazing career back home, I was the youngest manager in a big international company for 4 years, but my husband and I were looking for a better life to start a family, so we moved to the UK. Now we have to build everything all over again, starting with a job, a house, and a family. Getting a job is the first on the list for 2014!

    at a career cross-roads looking for a fresh start, a better quality of life and work-life balance that will enable me to add many years of corporate life experience to sectors and companies that could previously ill afford me to help them improve and allow me to spend more time with family, which will hopefully be a win-win scenario for all parties.

  70. James Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:29 pm

    I would love nothing more than to find the career that is for me. I would like a job as a recruitment consulatantn. The job profile fits me perfectly along with my 12 years of management experience. “Someone please give me a chance”.

  71. Honeybee35 Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:30 pm

    2014 would make for a better year for me if:

    1. I could have the brains of Barack Obama
    2. The body of Rihanna
    3. The wit of Alan Carr
    4. The voice of Kate Middleton
    5. & the luck of the Irish.

    A few months without having to see Kim K and Kanye W all over the place wouldn’t go amiss either. (Well, a girl can only wish!) I’m still trying to work out why they have so much media value – do they secretly conduct life-saving surgery or something? Answers on a postcard, twitter or facebook please!

  72. Martin Baker Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:30 pm

    I want my baby boy to be born safely and healthy, and be in a job where my wife can choose whether she wants to work or be a full time mum.

    • becky Saturday, 14 Dec, 2013 at 11:18 am

      Ahh, I think Martin and Wife should win something and that Mps should take a DECREASE in wages😉 so British people can reap rewards especially NHS workers 😊 firemen and maybe police 😔 we would have more to spend in British economy if we had better paid jobs… Obviously no ones going to be spending when there’s nothing left after paying for essentials, where as MPs can claim it on their expenses!!

    I would like to see people making the most for themselves in 2014. We can all sit doing a dead-end 9-5 job just because we have to, but wouldn’t it be great if everybody could have a job that they not only need, but instead have one that they actually love?! Live to work, don’t work to live!

  77. Peter gregory Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:31 pm

    I’d love to have a career change to help support my family and be a proper dad. I wish we could all show employers what we can do other than looking at Cv’s. My grandad once told me in the 40′s he walked out of 1 job straight into the next, let’s bring them days back and give everyone a chance.

  78. Aasim Farooq Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:32 pm

    Hmmmmmm… What do I wish to see in 2014.

    There are many things I would love to see in 2014. This includes witnessing a sunny summer vacation. I realise the summer of 2013 was pleasant however, I would truly love if Summer started in March 2014.

    I would love to see a train not delayed or arriving early at a train station. I crave an early train or bus!

    But most importantly I would love to see one person’s employment status change for the good.

  82. Joe Collins Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:33 pm

    I will get a job of my dreams after graduating from a UK university and will make my mother proud of the hard work she did for me and that would then be the best gift I could give to my late father. I would also be able to buy my lifetime dream machine – Hayabusa.

  86. Asha Mangul Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:34 pm

    I recently read TotalJob’s ‘Inside Job’ article about whether younger or older individuals experience find it more difficult to find work. The answer was, of course, that both groups have experienced difficulties. I would like to see more open-mindedness and fairness, and less discrimination with regards to younger/older jobseekers. Everyone should have a fair chance to prove themselves, use their skills, and earn a living.

  87. Michelle Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:34 pm

    I Would love to have a job that’s 9-5 mon-fri and have a weekend off for a change but all I do is silly hours that I don’t get enuff sleep,and I keep saying to my fiance that I would love to open up a homeless centre to help homeless people get housing quickley as I hate seeing homeless people out there on the streets at this freezing time of year and its just such a shame how some people don’t get to see there family at christmas as they have either fallen out or passed away I would love to have a big enuff house to say come on in for christmas.iam always thinking of others in that sense iam very throughful but you get some people that are very nasty and just think of them selves I don’t understand why the world is so stubbarn. But I would love to help the homeless as the old saying is get sent to coventry the only shame is I live and was born in coventry.

  88. Kevin Smith Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:34 pm

    I want to stop employers being so negative for goodness sake. Just because I had a brain operation and am 57 does not mean I can’t still work. Good job my enthusiasm and great positive attitude is still with me – otherwise I could just shoot myself!!!!!!!! (well, after Christmas anyway)

  89. Roy Downes Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:34 pm

  90. Magdalena Pelakova Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:35 pm

    I want to be happier in 2014!… whether I will find my dream job or not. I want to appreciate every opportunity that will be given to me and learn from my mistakes, so I can do better next time.
    I believe that if I will not give up searching, eventually there will be an employer who will give me THE chance. That is the only thing I need to prove, that I am as good as those who are working in my field.

  91. Lisa joanne clarke Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:35 pm

    I would like to finish my open university degree at the age of 39 and continue with my voluntary work to gain experience in my new chosen career. My career until now has been in litigation, however my degree is in social science as I am interested in helping society. My voluntary work consists of working for a Police Crime Commissioner and Hate Crime Services. I would love to find a rewarding career within social order and social justice when I complete my degree.

    Hell a new job would be nice and an outside look at how I could improve my job search. However I would rather work for myself running personal effectiveness courses and psychiatry recovery workshops. If you let me run effectiveness course for you your going to need the psychiatry recovery workshop afterwards. I than would be able to feed the kids more than once a week and not shock the neighbours when I wear trousers to work, not just a shirt and tie!!

  101. MAREK KOCHAN Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:38 pm

  105. Grant Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:39 pm

    I have always been self employed and mucked about with work, I’d like to wake up in the mornings and no I’m actually going to work, instead of getting a phone call telling me there’s no work. I have applied for so many jobs on total jobs and I have had no luck. I’d like to be full time employed and no that I would be getting money every month. So that way I could actually work out what’s what. So I would love the chance for this opportunity.

    Thank you.

  107. Gary Jarrald Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:39 pm

    A world that allows people to follow their dreams and be rewarded for their hard work, dedication and self sacrifice. A society that understands that nothing in this life is for free, and finally for the people of this world to understand that respect is earned by the living, and only paid to the dead, it is not a currency

    Merry Christmas to you all & may 2014 allow for your dreams to be realised

  108. mary Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:39 pm

    For 2014 I would like a major change in my life, to get married with the love of my life and find a job that can give me enough freedom to give 100% to the job and the company and achieve greatness which I know I’m capable of!

  110. Leon Lafayette Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:40 pm

    I decided to leave the world of wage slavery this year and take the plunge and go self employed. It’s difficult and I am struggling with finances but with a little hard work, a bag of self motivation and a cup full of dedication oh and not to forget the prize money :p I should be able to tackle 2014. My goal for 2014 is to stay strong and earn enough to pay my bills and begin to grow a healthy income. Bring on the challenge and the money!!! Please!? Pretty please!?

  111. Erik Visernevs Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:40 pm

    I want to see more jobs that are suitable for me.

  113. Ben Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:41 pm

    Well all I can say about 2013 job wise has been horrendous! First of all being made redundant for the third time (still only 28) hurt like hell and knocked my confidence to ground zero!!! After securing a job with EON and being in my 2nd week of training I thought things where looking up until I was let go due to a technicality on my CRB (it had an unspent conviction on) I’ve never even been inside a police station! Once I’d spent months getting my record corrected (no apology given even tho someone else’s mistake had cost me my job! Again I was down and finally secured another role in November only to be told the day before I started that I had to complete a credit check (my score was obviously bad after falling behind on credit card payments, since I was out of work) I failed the check and lost the job before I started!

    So for 2014 all I want is to get a job and keep it! I’ll scrub toilets, clean streets, even wipe the elderlys bottoms aslong as it means I have a place to go to each day and call work.

    • Nelly Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 10:56 pm

  119. David Holloway Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:42 pm

    In 2014 I would like to get a job with an organization that recognizes my attributes and skills.

    IT’S NOT BEEN THE BEST TIME,
    OVER THE PAST YEAR,
    PLENTY TO BE SAD ABOUT,
    AND NOT MUCH CHEER!

    A LOSS OF FRIENDS AND FAMILY,
    OF WHICH TO SHED A TEAR,
    NOT MUCH HAPPINESS,
    AND NO CAREER!

    2014 WILL BE HERE SOON,
    A YER TO BRING IN THE NEW,
    A JOB, MONEY, HAPPINESS,
    TO NAME BUT A FEW!

    SO I’LL ENTER THIS YEAR,
    OPTIMISTIC AND STRONG,
    A NEW JOB FOR ME,
    I’M SURE WON’T BE LONG!

  124. Stephen Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:44 pm

    I really want a job and I feel that sometimes employers don’t take the time to personally know me and give me the chance to really show them my full potential as an employee all I need is for an employer to say yes we will give you a chance to show that I am the perfect person for the job. Until I get that one chance I won’t be able to plan for the future or expand my skills until I have the backing from my employer sure I can do course after course but employers want experience which no one is willing to take the chance on me to show my full potential and worth.

  125. Arno van Loon Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:44 pm

    2014 that finally employers recognize that i am Unique

    Behind every send cv is a person, a unique person

  127. paul young Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:45 pm

    Next year. I want to expand my career with new training and may be a change in direction. To push myself to make a difference for my family and myself. Have a good Christmas everyone.

  128. Barani Sittampalam Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:45 pm

    This year carries a lot of tragedies and happenings. I wish a safe future for our future generation and a safe country, where you do not need to be afraid who is following you and who can take you something precious away.
    I also wish for graduates that they get a job. A company might expect a ‘perfect’candidate, but no one is born perfect. Someone can develop his perfectionalism by experience and lessons in failure and success.
    Same for students. Give the students a better opportunity to educate, not through raising the study fees, which sometimes can be signify that rich people (with money) can graduate, but also that poor students can afford it without taking so much loan.
    I wish also young people that they can afford an own home without taking loan or getting in financial crisis. If they could get better support their future might be brighter.
    Finally I wish good health system based on doctors, hospitals and even in foods. I hope this can be improved in next year, so that no one has to be afraid that he cannot get an appointment at hospital. Will be funny if the lack in doctors, will lead to treatments out of the country or if the food is unhealthy in the supermarket, we have to move out into the forest to make our own organic foods :D

  129. Rosanna Vincent Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:45 pm

    I would like to begin a career in the charity sector so I can feel like I am making a difference through my work, as this is something that I am really passionate about. I have carried out voluntary work but I never seem to have the amount of experience required. I would also like to go travelling and help out in conservation projects across the globe.

  130. Valentina Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:45 pm

    I would like to be happy, whatever the situation will be and the things that will happen. Life is a work in progress, who know how 2014 will be.

  132. Murray Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:46 pm

    My ultimate 2014 would consist of ‘An end to world poverty, no more wars, and all children having access to food and water’…but since I am never going to enter Miss World that little speech can stay in my head!! In reality I would aspire to be more successful, with a higher income and a better work-life balance. The prizes on offer would be fantastic in helping me achieve these goals with the exception of the Toni & Guy voucher, I am sure they are experts in their field but I don’t think even they can help a slap head like me!!!!

  133. Marisa Confortola Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:46 pm

    I finished my degree last year and i still haven’t got a job i want. Although I have been to so many job interviews but I haven’t had any luck. So I am really hoping to get a career I would like to go to so I am counting on 2014 to be my year to succeed and achieve a goal. I wish to give more money to my mum who has been in financial difficulties ever since my dad passed away.

  134. Sunya Athwal Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:47 pm

    i would really love a job with the help from you guys at totaljobs !!!As i have recently left the Royal Navy after 12 years to be with my wife more and see our first child born in the new year, there would be no better way to celebrate getting my career back on track again.

    It would be amazing to use 2014 as a starting point in helping build up a career that’ll help others in the long run. Make one dream happen to allow for other dreams to take place.

  140. Kerrie Johnston Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:48 pm

    After trying to return to return to the workplace after being a full time mummy for a few yearsI would like to be able to find a new career that will enable me to help support my family. I gave up my career to follow my husband in the military. He has now finished. Ive been trying for a year nut could really use the help to correct what I am doing wrong.

    I would like to see a man poo off a very high building onto david camerons head.

  142. heather clarke Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:49 pm

    In 2014 I would like a positive outlook on life, something to get up in the morning for. Seems like at the minute it is just drag myself out of bed, work, sleep, repeat.
    I would also like people to be a bit nicer to each other and respect that everyone has an ambition to be happy

  143. Christopher Aggett Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:49 pm

    Hi my name is chris I used to be in the British Army until I left to be closer to my family. Over the last year or so I have become a little obsessed with nutrition and finding out it’s importance. This was because I had piled on weight and needed a lift in life. Since I des covered various podcasts and information explaining how and what good nutrition ment I got the ball rolling with trying to eat right and exercise again. I have twin boys who are 9 and I now coach their successful u10s rugby team. I also have set up a free fitness class which people love and is great fun and after the sessions I relay the info I have learnt to improve their know late to lead a healthier life. I have everything in place to open up my own company which does this full time. However I don’t have the nutrition or fitness instructor courses behind me or the funds to set up. I work 60 plus hours a week so have no time to do them. My fitness group is called the walking shread ! And has a few zombie lovers and I have great ideas for a warehouse type bootcamp gym that would teach young and old the importance of nutrition and train specific training such as military fitness sports and for events such as tough mudder. The key to my club however would be adventure training it’s something that the military use to ease stress and improver bonding. In the civilian world it’s constant with no break which is why I want that to be a big part too. I took my group up pen y fan this year for some it was a big achievment and some just a first and lot of fun. I want to make this a reality and take them up snowdon this year. I want to change peoples lives for the better and help people enjoy life. Depression hit me this year and it was a struggle my sister has it and my club helps. The more people I help the better I feel and I know it would be a successful business I just need help to get going. :)

  144. F Adewale Ajibade Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:49 pm

    I will like to see myself get employed in a good job/career thereby i will be able to take good care of myself and my family, and be able to have money to spend for holidays and special events and be able to do more things even for my community and society.

    I will like to win a laptop or an ipad air also ;)

  145. Mario Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:50 pm

    All I want is financial stability, for me and my kids, nothing for free just a job.
    2013 a disaster!, I like to think that anythink that starts on the wrong foot will end well, unfortunately I’ve just lost my job.

  146. Frank Weeks Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:50 pm

    Employers should give priority to recruiting and and then training British workers rather than recruiting foreign candidates on the excuse of “skills shortage”. Age should be irrelevant to recruitment, only potential should matter.

  147. Jordan Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:50 pm

    I’d like to see the Government putting more funding into Apprenticeships to give us 18+ unemployed youths a fighting chance. Too many company’s are not accepting 18-25 youths for apprenticeships because of the lack of funding. With more opportunities to learn while you earn would see a decrease in youth unemployment. With the relevant qualifications gained from said apprenticeships and with the 1-2 years contract, finding a job in the relevant sector would be a lot easier than trying to get your foot into the door without the experience or qualifications.

  148. michael cudmore Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:50 pm

    I would like to transport my office and all the people closer to my home. 50 miles away !!!!!

  149. Adam Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:51 pm

    I would like that in 2014 there will be a real change to how people think. I would like that everyone will have enough time to spend with family and friends and do not have to worry about financial side of things. I would like for the society to change and start rewarding fanatically jobs which are have a great value to the society. I would love that people will start to love more themselves and others around them.

  150. Annette Janman Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:51 pm

    I lost my mum in Septamber after looking after her for 4 years and now i would like to be back in full time employment. I am doing courses to better myself which hopefully will lead to a new career. You never know what is round the corner. good luck everyone.

  151. Anushika Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:51 pm

    I am looking forward to find my first ever part time job where I can develop valuable skills that will be useful when applying for a placement by the end of 2014! I would love to have a job with a lot of variety where I can make a good contribution to the success of the firm I work for. I want my 2014 to be a beautiful , efficient and productive year ! :)

  152. RYAN Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:52 pm

    So what would make 2014 a whole lot better than 2013?

    Well for starters England could win the World Cup Football, rather than snatching defeat from the jaws of victory as per usual…

    All dictators and warmongers around the world giving up fighting and taking up golf…

    A month Python reunion (which actually goes ahead sans bickering)…

    And finally the scrapping of the idea of money and I could make my living as an accountant actually counting beans.

    Now that would make for a fantastic 2014!!!

  153. Loral Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:52 pm

    I would like 2014 to be my time to shine in a job that I can show how enthusiastic ,hard working I am and not be told I don’t have the experience. I would like to be happy in what I am doing and gain my confidence back. In 2014 I would like to show the people that didn’t believe in me and had doubts about me, how wrong they was to act like that. I just want HAPPINESS!! =)

  154. M. Ali Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:52 pm

    I want 2014 to be better with new job to lift me up from choosing every month between buying food or paying for gas.
    Want better start for my family who suffer with me after losing my job, a job in graphic design or illustration so i can draw a better life for them.
    Sad, real , but optimistic and 2014 will be my new art job and new start. thank you
    Mo Ali

  155. Andrew McNeilage Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:52 pm

    2013 has been a interesting year for me regarding my work and personal life, having to deal with a possible life changing illness and thankfully coming through it fine! Was made redundant from a job that I loved doing was hard, it’s tuff to accept things like that when you have given the job 100% but I moved on holing my head high and I would still recommend the company to anyone thinking of working for them as it’s a learning curve not personal. I would like 2014 to be a productive year full of hope and stability.

  156. kseniia Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:53 pm

    I hope if I to win any of the prize in 2014 and get a job (Priority), it would at least make my year 2014 more interesting. I never won any prize before in any contest or competition participated.

    Laptop – to be able to send more CV and make more application. (Replace my old PC)
    Career coaching – to learn technique and skills.
    Ipad – to check out jobs vacancies on Totaljobs site.
    Debenhams voucher – to get a nive outfit for interview
    Toni & Guy – have a nice haircut for interview.
    Fuller CV – CV makeover.
    Careers advice book – to learn more technique and tips.
    M&S – to buy food when not got an job offer.

  157. Helen Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:53 pm

    Firstly, l want to beat the downtrodden employment market (with a little training and my continued daily persistence with totaljobs.com) and score myself an amazing events management role within a dynamic, forward thinking organisation.
    Secondly (and hopefully with a healthy income and some new tools), l want to help my amazing 20 year old daughter launch her stylist business and see her build herself a more secure future.

  158. Deirdre Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:53 pm

    For 2014 I would like World Peace.. Ohh wait wrong type of competition:-D .

    Seriously though for 2014 like everyone else I love a job, not just any job I would love a job were I feel confident in my position, where my ideas and work can really contribute. Perhaps more importantly I would like to work in an environment were a am able to make the odd mistake without threat of job loss, I have a creative mind so it works on trial and error!
    Failing finding my perfect job, I would of course take the “winning the lottery in 2014” scenario, but I feel perhaps you lovely folks at total jobs could help me more with the first request.

  159. Di Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:53 pm

    I want a new career after 25 years in the Civil Service, somewhere where I am valued for the skills I know I can bring to my employer and not side-lined because I prefer to work part-time. I want to work to live not the other way around. Oh, and I’d like to not lose anyone I love in 2014.

  160. Jenny Middleton Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:54 pm

    For 2014 I would like the nicest, most passionate and interesting creative team to leave the office and come running down the street, through the wind, snow and hail, to sweep me off my feet and give me a huge (if slightly late) christmas present of the best job. Then I can start my life of pouring myself into a career which I love doing and makes me happy.

  161. Camilla Forster Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:54 pm

    In 2014, I would like to see myself earn at least £600 a week, including a basic salary and commission, helping people find work as a recruitment consultant. I would like to see my home based business which I will be building in the evening and weekends, take off and earn me at least £30,000 a month by the end of the year, as “Profits are better than wages” as America’s most loved business philosopher Jim Rohn loved to say! :)
    I will go on fantastic weekend breaks with my friends and family, and take my mum, brother and sisters clothes shopping in London just for the crack! I will go to lots of shows and unusual outings, with friends and family, as life is too short and there is lots to do! I will also work on myself spiritually and mentally and travel to Florida, California and New York, as there is so much happening there, and we can’t take our material possessions with us when we die, just our personalities and memories! I will contribute to society and donate to my favourite charity, as it’s important to give back too! And if I win this competition, I will be a great winner, and gratefully promote TotalJobs until the cows come home! (I love sharing great things and experiences with my friends, and am a natural promoter.) ;) Most of all though, I would like to see things really turn around for the better in society, and see the good people in government accomplish their goals all over the world, uniting with each other instead of fighting, so we really can start to see peace on earth! Hurrah! :)

    • Norbert Mezei Friday, 20 Dec, 2013 at 10:39 pm

      Thank you for the chance.My daughter wants to go for nice summer holiday. In order to fulfill her dream ,I have to succeed on the job interview coming up in January.Your support will give me an edge and turn 2014 into a year of success.

  162. andrew bailey Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:54 pm

    for 2014 i’d like an e-mail saying “YES! you’ve got yourself a job where the weather is good, the money is better, the food is great, and the houses are cheap so pack your bags coz you’ll be leaving this week!………. come on santa do your job right this year!

  163. Juliet Mansell Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:55 pm

    I would like to be in a financial position to be able to travel to Cameroon and Sudan and help build school and provide children with a much needed education

  164. Reece Roberts Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:55 pm

    What i would love to see happen in 2014 is for me to get my life straight, being a 17 year old would no direction and no way to financially help my parents kills me therefore I would love to get a job in a place where i feel comfortable and happy earning my own money to take the stress off of my parents and myself because they can’t afford a lot at the moment, I would just love to be able to treat my mum to dinner or buy a nice present for my dad without being skint afterwards because then I could really be happy and give myself some direction in life instead of sticking around here feeling lost, hopeless and depressed, fingers crossed that I can find a way to get myself a really nice job next year.

  165. Gregor Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:55 pm

    2014 for me is going to be a year of joy, hope, opportunity and in all reality I am super excited to make the most of it.

    Lucky number 13 has not been a year to rejoice though definitely one to remember and learn from. Having been made redundant from a job I fully enjoyed and had a promising future I found employment where the operations would look backwards in the 1970′s!! I split from up from a wonderful woman, I contracted optical neuritis and am waiting to see if this is a symptom of MS. Just the other week whilst driving to work my windscreen was smashed from falling debris in the high winds!!!

    So having all this in one year has been challenging and if I’m honest perversely enjoyable in that when faced with adversity I stepped up and faced each scenario. Now that the year is closing and looking back in reflection I am a stronger person, more giving and fully energised for 2014.

    What do I hope for in the forthcoming year, well 1) get my career back on track and earn a position I am capable of and on the at inspires, one that lets me use my talent and skills to be the best. 2) Learn gaelic!! I have never been one to pick up languages easily, I really desire to this ability and what better language than one of national heritage. This would also open new doors in career possibilities :) 3) Buy a Ferrari F12… Ok this one may have to wait a year or so?! 4) Love and happiness, hopefully for me but me giving more to others. The power of a smile and an ear is wondrous and seeing others get a little lift in spirits because someone is simply there and spending a little time to care. What goes round, comes round!

    So really, 2014 is going to be what I make it, and I’m going to make it great…

  166. George Fotopoulos Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:56 pm

    I want a new job or a new career. I hope 2014 will give me that…

  167. Tarmo Niinepuu Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:56 pm

    I would like to get a job which I am trained and have experienced for and in fall I would like to get to postgraduate course in Westminster University.

  168. Simon Daly Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:56 pm

    If the Govt would change its’ economic direction, I would like to see better job creation, followed by actual consideration by recruitment companies of a persons CV, without the 3 second glance on it.
    Myself, along with thousands of others, would have the chance of giving our skills to enable better working environments for better security.
    Otherwise, a decent shot at showing my own ability to someone who will take the time for it, after so long unemployed and re-educating.

  169. José Milhano Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:56 pm

    My dream for next year it’s to improve my self personal and professional the way I can bring my family near me. I want a better job because I don’t like to apply to helps from the government :)
    I only to be happy near my kids and wife

  170. Julie Reed Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:57 pm

    In 2014 I’d like to find a job that lets me have a career which lets me grow and flourish in a company that appreciates me. On a more general note I hope 2014 brings good things to the people who deserve it. I still believe in you Karma so don’t let me down :D

  171. Leo Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:57 pm

    This would give self-worth to a currently directionless career. I don’t know what I want to do with my life and there is so much static as to what the ‘right’ way of doing things is. The only person who has the answer as to what will make me happy is me, but I don’t have a clue.

    So for 2014, I want pride in what I do, confidence that I am capable and beyond. When people ask me what my job is or for advice, I can actually have a conversation without embarrassment, certain that I do have a growing career I can be proud of. I will help others achieve and strive for better with a new sense of assertiveness and expertise found only through experience.

    Oh, and world peace.

  172. jane thorpe Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:57 pm

    I am a hca band 2 and love what I do

    Thanks

  173. Roman Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:57 pm

    I want to see more sports facilities and at cheaper rates! This is the best way to keep bored children off the street! It bridges the racial, religious & cultural gaps in the UK. It is also important for the health of people at all ages! I would love a job to promote sports facilities to all schools and social groups such as scouts and girl guides, make them aware of the benefits and promote these facilities to all! Sport can save the World! I am no God… but my name is Roman! :)

  174. Louise Anderson Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:58 pm

    For me a new job would be great ( I think my continual presence at home every day is beginning to annoy my cat, daughter etc). But for everyone I think it’s time for the economy to get going again and in such a way that people really can feel their lives improving.

  175. Arvydas Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:58 pm

    Very nice!!! Merry Christmas!!!

  176. Sarah Collins Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:58 pm

    Ah well now…. it would be nice if experience and loyalty could be appreciated by employers in 2014 and ageism was truly a thing of the past!

  177. Robert Sowrey Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:59 pm

    I would like to see all those jobless parents’ who have pride in themselves, to get a job and feel a sense of satisfaction that they are responsible for putting food on the table and a roof over their children’s heads. The ones who want to earn their money rather than getting it from the state.

  178. Juliet Mansell Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:59 pm

    I would like to be in a financial position to be able to travel to Cameroon and Sudan and help build a school and provide children with a much needed education

  179. Ema R. Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 12:59 pm

    This year was as unpromising and monotonic as 365 days spent living with your parents could be. No career changes, no changes in personal life; unless you count that one time a guy at the bus stop winked at me – though it might be possible he just got something in his eye. So here I was, single twenty year old with big career aspirations (I admit, I’m still hoping to be an astronaut one day), spending her days of what is supposed to be the most adventurous and colorful time of her life, living in a small flat with her parents. That’s when I decided to take matters into my own hands. I packed my suitcase (big old school backpack), waved my parents and my three cats goodbye (did I mention I used to hoard cats? Now you know) and set out on a journey to England. And here I am, after hours of motion sickness conquered, I’m finally in London, starting my own adult life. Though I admit – there are days when I still miss having not a care in the world, but at the same time I want to grow up – I want to have education, to have a job with career prospects (hopefully not in McDonald’s), to find my one true love (hey there, boys) and to live my life to the fullest. New year is a year of hopes and aspirations coming true, of truly listening to yourself and following your dreams. By yourself. With your own hands. This is the year I show to the world who I really am, what I am capable of. And no matter how many times I fail or make a mistake, I will get up and try again until I make it. I will be the person I have always dreamed of to be ever since I was a child, when I used to look up to my parents. I will make those who care about me proud. I will make myself proud. I will become a success. 2014 is the year I change everything about myself and become a responsible adult. 2014 is the year I truly start my life.

  180. Charlene Jagger Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:00 pm

    I have been stuck in the same job for the past 5 years, since I left school, and I am no longer being challenged at what I do. My confidence has shrunk since I have started this job due to the role and other personal factors. I no longer feel that I am able to go out and find jobs that interest me and I would love the opportunity to get help in finding my career path and set myself up for my future. All I am after are the tools to help me get where I want to in life. I left school a bright student and since then I feel I have achieved nothing and I would just love to get the confidence to get myself out there and have my voice heard.

  181. Peter Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:00 pm

    A man clicks a link on a website, enters his job requirements and up pops just what he wants. In one click, he’s applied. Back comes a reply to take an online interview, he’s asked relevant questions, he gives honest answers; yes he can start on Monday. His coffee is still warm and after drinking it, he calls his partner with the news. The sweet taste of success lingers as he ponders excitedly over the new adventure ahead. The man is you, the job is your dream, but the vision is reality. Welcome to 2014.

  182. Leigh Doyle Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:00 pm

    I’m young and I am currently doing an apprenticeship, I am going to need some help in choosing the path I want to take in terms of my career. I would like to go into a full time career that utilizes the skills I have gained whilst completing my apprenticeship, but the career also has to be something I would enjoy in order to keep me motivated to get out of bed and go to work everyday. I would like to receive interview opportunities from various companies in order to keep my options open and allow me to get the career most suited to me.

    Leigh Doyle

  183. Sally Musselle Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:00 pm

    For 2014 I would like a year that I can look back on and say YES! I restarted my life after finalizing my divorce after a two year battle to date. Where I have started a new working life with good prospects and a future to be proud of!
    I would like to look back on a year where I have started and completed most of my accounting qualifications along side my new job.
    I know I will be looking back on a land mark year holding the hands of my three children and smile being grateful for all I have and I all I look forward to in 2015!

  184. Nathalie Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:01 pm

    We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day…
    And to make 2014 (or any other)your year, keep it simple:

    1) Count your blessings first
    2) Whatever you did last year, Do it better
    3) Go step by step, One day at a time.
    4) Create/make your own opportunities.
    5) Believe in your abilities at all times,
    6) Quitting is not an option. Keep Going.
    7) Finish what you started.

    Happy New Year everyone

  185. Nick Morton Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:01 pm

    I wish to see a happy & health family life, not just for me but my friends too, some of whom are struggling with their health. That coupled with an challenging new role should make me smile all day every day,
    Have fun everyone, whatever you’re doing…………. :-)

  186. Sacha Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:01 pm

    Other than land the job that allows me to redefine who I am, I would like to build my dream eco house for my parents, daughter and I. To top it off, it would be great if all global debt was wiped from and we could all start again and it made was illegal to be aggressive about ones religion!
    Happy Christmas :)

  187. Tom Wright Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:01 pm

    I just want to be happy, Designing and creating things to make other people happy. Is that too hard to ask for?

  188. Samantha Coidan Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:02 pm

    Well currently working as a recruitment consultant and although I love the job and the people I work with, I really miss my dental nursing and practice management. I would love to be able to get back into this and make a real difference to those who ‘hate the dentist’. I want to be able to improve my knowledge and qualifications and be able to have easy access to these. I love the learn and earn, but need to help to get that bit further to make myself and the company a huge success.

  189. Phil Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:02 pm

  191. Paul Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:02 pm

    I would like a job where I am happy and can make a real difference not only to clients but the company too.

  193. J Ferrett Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:03 pm

    After finishing a full military career, I now want a career in the civilian sector. A career that I can use my skills and experience, but even more importantly, a career that gives me job satisfaction.

  194. Fredrik Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:03 pm

    I will begin my new job as a contract renewal and also begin with my Cisco CCNA course that is 1 year course so its perfect for 2015 new job in my area of expertise.

    I have been unemployed for 5 months and would love to start the new year with a new job so I can set myself up for what I want to do in the future! I can’t afford all the resources I need for this to happen so this would be a massive help!

  196. Peter Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:04 pm

    People need to change.
    Terrorism need to stop.
    Everyone need to be happy.
    Pollution need to be control.
    Corruption need to be stopped.
    Everyone must think all human beings are equal.

    Thank you….!!

    I would like to set up a social enterprise to provide support and practical help to the local community. To plough profits back into the community to provide more jobs better resources and social inclusion for all. If it works in my community, to then roll it out to other communities, so eventually every community ends up with what they want, not just what they are given.I believe that if everyone who wishes to have input into their community has the opportunity, then growth and pride in their community flourishes.
    After all; what would you rather have, what your given or what through your own achievements, what you want?

  199. Jordan Stephenson Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:04 pm

    I would like to see a stable economic growth with a government package to attract bigger firms to the UK and open up a lot of Entry level jobs where people can train in to an exciting long term career prospective like myself!

  200. Jay Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    In 2014 I would like to find a job where I enjoy working and will be happy again without feeling stressed and anxious…..I would also like to see Simon Cowell wear his trousers round his waist instead of his chest Ha Ha Ha……Merry Christmas everyone…..

  201. Dave Wood Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    Last year, after I lost my job, I had a moment of realisation (some may say enlightened) I now know the meaning of happiness and what’s needed to help others find theirs. All I need is the right job to enable the message to reach, as many of those that most desperately need it, as possible; with totaljobs help maybe I can achieve this dream.

  202. Sunny Dhaliwal Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    I’d like to see websites like totaljobs become obsolete as we are all in the careers we want to be in! Congratulations totaljobs, you will have succeeded…

  203. Andrei Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:06 pm

    I want happiness and a good carrier that allows me to develop

  204. Ian carpenter Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:06 pm

    In 2014 I would like to “brush” up on my interview skills, “touch up” my c.v and “roll” out the red carpet to a new career in the decorating sector. I want a career where I am happy going to work, where I can thrive in the industry, support my family and look forward in life and to the possibility of a wedding!! There’s nothing better than the feeling of security, and with the aid of totaljobs I hope to do this! 2014 is gonna be a good year and hopefully the start of something special!!! Fingers and toes are crossed!!

  205. Gianluca Cherubini Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:06 pm

    I want to be helpful, not only an asset. I want to be brilliant, not only an expert. I want to be awesome, not only a smart guy. I want a chance to prove all that. And I want it now. I do not believe in luck, because it is not luck it’s TotalJobs!

  206. barry hall Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:06 pm

    I would like a job that will pay enough to cover my bills and help look after my family buy also one that will push me and stretch my abilities to make the best I can be in my job but also offer the ability to progress through the company so I can reach my goals and progress as high as I can in the company

  207. Lyndall Smith Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:07 pm

    The next George R.R Martin ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ novel to be published

  208. Bernard Christianctus Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:07 pm

    In 2014, I would love to have a better career life which will help me achieve my common goals of being a great computer engineer. In 2013, I have been looking for a way of expressing my potentials in the computing world and I believe this new year I will be on top of my career. I also want to work in United Kingdom because she has a great way of treating her citizens. Looking at 2014, the year is coming to everyone with great things and I believe it wont pass me by. Contrary to the life style of people, 2014 would affect me because i really want a new life.

  209. Nigel Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:07 pm

    I would like to see a move from a ‘job’ to a ‘career’ and to work for an appreciative employer that recognises your extra effort. Money and recognition are not the main big drivers for me, instead I want training and developing to be the best I can be. The employer will mutually benefit from that return on investment and I also have a transferable asset (skills) that I can carry with me wherever my career takes me.

  210. Rebecca Yourell Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:08 pm

    In 2014 I would like for both my partner and I to find full time permanant jobs. Finantial security for my family would be such a releaf after 2 years if short contracts and company’s going bust. It’s very mentally draining to constantly worry if I can buy good or heat me house.

  211. Mario Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:08 pm

    I would like to “wow” everyone in my new Debenhams suit in my new job! Oh and my wife would be so happy if I didn’t have to leave the house at 6.30 every morning to drive to a job two hours away.

  212. Gwynfor Humphreys Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:08 pm

    I would like a job that would allow me to put back into construction all that it has given me over the years and pass all my knowledge on to the next generation to make the Industry safer to work in and develop and improve the end product.

  213. Linda Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:08 pm

    I would like to get funding so I can start my own company, and stop chasing jobs I actually don’t want, just to pay the bills. I believe it’s a waste to work on someone else dream while you have your own. My next wish for 2014 would be for governments to stop ethnic profiling and work more towards Equality, Freedom & Justice for all mankind.

  214. Henry Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:09 pm

    Dear Santa
    I am sitting here drinking a cup of tea,
    2013 was really bad for me.
    I packed my things and put them in a cart,
    I moved to Leicester to begin a new start.
    I’m filled with sugar and spice,
    And always treat people very nice.
    All i want for christmas is that special job for me,
    So that i can begin my life with glee.

  216. Anne Tansey Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:09 pm

    I’d like to see a redistribution of wealth , world peace , aliens landing to sort things out and oh a job that pays a living wage would be the icing on my cake . I did just see a pig fly past my window !

  217. Lillian Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:10 pm

    I would like to see the trainings available to young people can be offered to the matured ones, too; why can’t I want to be a plumber at 40 after looking after my kids and now they are grown up? no apprenticeship is available to us even though we have more common sense and are much more willing to learn, we are only given what’s left if there’s any. I don’t want much, just equal opportunity. Totaljobs, please make my wish come true.

  218. Greg Higman Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:10 pm

  219. Andrew Griffiths Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:10 pm

    I am very lucky. I’ve just got a new job. What I would like is a technical makeover (you know, a lap top, an i-pad to start with) and a personal makeover would freshen me up for my new start in January 2014. Can I be that lucky? or is that just greedy! Good luck everyone else and keep positive!

  220. Frank Kerr Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:11 pm

    I want a 2:1 pass and acceptance onto a post grad teaching course.

  221. natasha Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:11 pm

    This sounds like a fantastic opportunity this could open alot of doors for a individual like my self who cannot offord all the right tools needed to be a huge success as I am able. If I was choosen I would be so delighted to begin my own make up range but not any make up range a make up so unique which dont just help women look and feel great but also treats the skin. Some women suffer with really bad skin issues and for some, make up makes it worse I know because I am also one that has these problems. I wanted to be a mqkeup artists since day one but then also thought if there were a skin make up solution for women even men likw myself it could really change peoples life. I love when I do a makeover and customers are glowing with happiness I love making people feel good about then self its such a joy but I would absolutely love to make others who are deeply upset in the skin there in feel happier and confident in there own body buy actually solving the problem and at rhe same time look amazing. I truly believe in this and would love your help to make a difference in not just my life but a lot of women/mens life all over for 2014 thank you for hearing me out

    I want 2014 to be the year I correct my younger selfs mistakes. I am enrolled into uni which can be a painstakingly risky option but I don’t have much else so why not? I’m not getting any younger!

  223. Maciej Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:11 pm

    Hi,

    I would like to see myself in full time employment working with young people, As I enjoy teaching and mentoring young people. I really need to find full time employment as I am getting married in August and could really do with the additional finance in order to give my princess the wedding of her dreams. So I would really love to see myself in 2014 a married man, financially stable to look after my family!!!

    Theo

  226. Carol Brady Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:12 pm

    I would love to get back into work and regain some self confidence, as I am a older parent of a teenager and a single parent.
    I have found it very difficult, so I have working voluntary
    with my housing association, which is great but does not pay the bills.
    It would be lovely to kiss the jobcentre goodbye and stand
    on my own two feet.

  227. Ben Best Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:12 pm

    Twenty Fourteen is the year that I learn
    to drive a truck, or maybe give someone a perm,
    perhaps I’ll teach English or sell a new car,
    or maybe someone will see me, playing my guitar.

    I’ve spent a long time sorting my CV,
    writing covering letters, and being distracted by TV.
    I’ve looked on TotalJobs, and in the local Newspaper
    but I’ve still had no luck in my job hunting caper.

    I’ve decided, I think, that it’s time to re-train,
    To look for something different, start using my brain
    So what I really want from twenty fourteen,
    is a career not a job; I’m ready, I’m keen!

  228. Amina Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:13 pm

    2013 has been a very tough year for me. I would like a bright career with a stable job so that I can deliver my skills, experience and knowledge to show what I am capable of.
    My moto in life is to help myself to help others. By seeing a simple smile on my family and friends gives me the joy and happiness.
    I hope 2014 gives me this opportunity to fulfill my wish and succeed for a better future for myself and for the people who are around me.

  229. Saranpreet Grewal Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:13 pm

    Well I’m due to have another baby girl in April 2014. So my special year would be for her and my other little girl to be happy and healthy. In order to do that and provide them with everything that I couldn’t have when I was younger is to get myself into a fantastic stable job and work my butt off to ensure that they will always be cared for.
    Also would hopefully like to get a whole nights sleep at least once without my girls waking up so that I don’t look too rough in the morning but that’s sort of a miracle type of wish.
    Thank you xxx

  230. kelvin Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:13 pm

    i like to see the uk economic improve in 2014 so everyone can find work easily

  231. Benjamin Haigh Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:14 pm

    I would genuinely like to see greater prospects and the achievement of success by those labelled as long term unemployed.

    The regulation of the recruitment sector, too many quick start recruitment companies, cashing in on the out of work, the desperate will apply to anything viable, even if it is a fake add, a scam, a zero hours commission only short term fix make a recruitment pyramid scheme starter rich.

    The restructuring of the Welfare State. The word benefit is dated and its positive connotation is misleading to those who have never been at the grace of the State, assistance is a better word. Welfare should be based on dignity and not entitlement.

    An end to the media stigmatization of the out of work. Those not earning are vulnerable, there is no other collective term that fits.

  232. Michael Lynn Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:14 pm

    In 2014 I’d like my wife to have bigger boobs.
    My 2 year old son not to age a day.
    My house to be decorated perfectly and porfessionally rather than my horrendous DIY glaring at us all.
    My holidays to not be restricted to our hometown beach, for the day.
    Oh and how could I forget, I want my hair to grow back, bald doesnt suit me.

  233. Jean Lumingu Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:14 pm

    People must become more motivate and career oriented and stop blame it on the system or limited themselves, we have all the tools necessary to find the right job for us (Internet, news papers, job site and many more).
    Nothing is impossible in this world, have faith and work hard, doors are open to everyone.

  234. Samantha Tether Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:14 pm

    I have never been employed and i’m 19 so I apply for anything I can. I always try to be enthusiastic in what I do but on job seekers it feels like I:
    Eat
    Sleep
    Apply
    Repeat
    It seems I can not do much more than this in order to try to gain a job or even career.
    But I still keep my hopes up and stay motivated.

  235. Connor Aldous Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:15 pm

    I want to develop superpowers! :P
    or a fair chance at getting a job. Either will do lol

  236. Melanie Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:15 pm

    I want world domination!

    But seriously I would like to make a difference. Ideally I would like to put everything I learnt in my degree, my unique personality quarks, traits and skill set to good use to forge a career with a bright future and recognition.

    And I would like world peace too 

  237. Paul Fellows Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:15 pm

    2014 is coming soon
    Cosmos hear and grant this boon.
    A job within in my new career
    Is all I ask, no greed, not here!
    Recruiters look beneath the page
    See all the skills I’ve gained with age.
    Don’t write me off give, me a chance.
    I’m good to go, my skills enhanced.
    A word to David in number 10,
    I found I was quite angry when
    You said I’m a shirker or a slob,
    I’m unemployed and I want a job!
    Let the new year bring to all
    That letter email or phone call,
    That’ll banish all the pain and sorrow.
    You’ve got a job you can start tomorrow!

  238. Suki Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:15 pm

    I want to have a great new job, with great new people, to save enough money for a deposit on a flat, and the same for everybody else looking for a job out there. That’s right, jobs for all! I should be Priminister!

  239. Sangeeta Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:16 pm

    A new job that inspires my passion for marketing again with a path to clearly progress…oh and a winning lottery ticket!

  240. Jatin Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:16 pm

    I would like to get a job offer which I can accept from my heart knowing that I will be able to give back something to my friends, family and society. I would like to hope that employers in 2014 start to understand that skills are not everything for a job. Mindset is even more important. A person that possesses all the skills but does not have a good mindset will not be as successful as one who lacks the skills for a job but has the best mindset!

  241. J Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:16 pm

    Stuck in a glamourised admin job for so long and need to get a job that I enjoy and that pays well :-)
    My CV & I both need a super make over

    Thanks

  242. Richard Green Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:17 pm

    I hit 50, so Life begins… I start my DBA and recruiters recognise that my best work lies ahead…

  243. Ruthie Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:17 pm

    In 2014 I hope to find purpose, fulfillment and real direction. Life is a book of chapters, and my next chapter is full of potential. Hope is not just a word it is a state of mind.

  244. john lynch Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:17 pm

    I would like a job that pays a decent wage so i can take my three daughter’s away abroad on holiday,After bringing them up for sixteen year’s on my owen.

  245. Dayo Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:17 pm

    Honestly, what I would like to see happen in 2014.
    – A job better than I’ve ever had before (currently unemployed)
    - More opportunities for people to better their families, lives, pockets
    - People living in harmony rather than this tension created by immigration issues currently.
    - Global peace.
    - England winning the World Cup.
    - Arsenal winning a cup (Premiership or Champions league preferably)
    - Wages to increase more than inflation.
    - A cure found to the present incurable ailments such as Cancer, AIDS.

    I can dream…;-)

  246. Chris Pitchford Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:18 pm

    I just want to find a job so I can pay the bills and feed my children.

  247. arielle smith-lamb Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:18 pm

    I want to get a job, so that myself and my partner can have financial stability in life. So that my partner doesn’t have to pay all the bill

  248. Adam Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:18 pm

    I would like to see employment rate and salaries high, interest rates and house prices low. And of course people happy. Nice dream isn’t it?!

  249. David Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:18 pm

    I will celebrate being one year nearer to retirement leaving a space free for a young person to have work

    If only the government could see the sense in this and reduce the retirement age, for a while at least, instead of pushing it up

  250. Alexandra Tsiatsiou Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:19 pm

    Just health and love. These are the powers that will help us keep chasing our dreams.

  251. Jason Hubbard Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:19 pm

    A job role in my chosen career path, which is stable and gives me the ability to support my family.I don’t mind having to relocate any where in the UK to get that job role. I’m also prepared to attend some additional training if that helps get the role I’m after.

  252. David Russell Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:19 pm

    I’d like to see my career as a proof reader take off. If I had a pound for every spelling mistake in the ads I’ve seen during 2013, I would have over £78 by now.

    It’s bad enough not getting feedback on an application, but considering they were recruiting for a “manafacturing engineer” it does grate a little.

    Oh and world peace would be nice.

  253. Ian R Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:20 pm

    That’s easy I want to be debt free. To do this all I need is a job that inspires me to do my best.

    Because I believe if I do my best then my salary will be enough to finally clear all my debts.

  254. Callum Orzechowski Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:20 pm

    2014 well thats the name on the door we’re all going to walk through at midnight on new years eve. I guess that I wont be alone when breathing a big sigh of relief that i’m still fortunate enough to own my house and the children had as an enjoyable christmas as could be afforded.

    So what’s 2014 got in store for me? I guess the key thing it holds will be opportunity, the new year looks really promising as we are starting to see some upturn in movement, in the IT jobs market. However there is one thing i’ll be doing differently in 2014, i’ll be approaching the employer directly! After spending a year applying for in excess of 100 positions a week through recruiters and agency’s it became clear that i was doing something wrong.

    Now to be fair, i’ve got a pretty unique set of skills and experience, but time after time i was getting put on the too difficult to handle path because i didn’t neatly fit into the job specification or i was over qualified. I recently tested the theory and approached the UK head of HR for a Global IT Business, using the wonder of Linkedin anything is possible and within hours a returned email and i was being asked what i wanted to join the business and strangely being complement on my skill set and experience, i’d long since forgotten that i once used to be a valued and experienced member of the team!

    So in 2014 I’m off to make my own opportunities and 2013 thanks i’ve learned some lessons that will stay with me forever but lets not do this too often…

  255. Andrea Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:20 pm

    Id like a part time administration job, to be able to show off my skills and feel some sort of worth again. The money from a job would enable me to marry my fiance and to complete our family. The make over would improve my confidence and make me feel good, which is what i need at the moment, as everything has gone against us recently…. in a nut shell it would be ‘A PERFECT CHRISTMAS WISH COME TRUE’….

  256. Mira Gyuleva Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:20 pm

    I would like 2014 to bring health to me and the ones I love.I also want a successful new career in Fashion PR in London.
    Merry Xmas!

  257. Marks Ncube Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:21 pm

    My 2014 new year’s resolution is to make no more resolutions. Only getting a new job will be a resolution not broken. This is because most people set unreasonable and unrealistic goals for themselves. My 2014 resolution, however, is guaranteed to one thing only getting a job that will make me and my family happy. The undeniable key to success, is to not set yourself up for failure.

  258. Ed Moss Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:21 pm

    I would like to meet an honest and professional recruitment consultant with a client that is not “leading”, CAN reveal the salary, CAN reveal the name of the client and who doesn’t reply with a computerised rejection letter at 3am on a Sunday morning two hours after you apply for the job – the job being with their anonymous leading client who despite having a multi-billion turnover doesn’t know what salary they are offering! – professional recruitment consultant who obtains an interview for you based on the fact that your CV, which they have actually manually read, matches the job description of “my client”.

  259. Milko Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:21 pm

    Having been unemployed since moving to the UK in July to support my wife’s career, I would like to see 2014 bring in some great new prospects and the ideal position for me to also plant my roots in the UK and begin a fruitful career!

  260. Silvana Mansilla Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:21 pm

    I want to find my RIGHT job and i think Totaljobs.com is the best way to do it, and now is Not only giving me the perfect webside to my everyday jobseeker also the chance of winning
    over £3,500 worth of job-related prizes to step forward professionally and I would very much appreciate if i can get this massive boost just in time for 2014.

  261. Richard Blair Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:22 pm

    Perhaps it didn’t work out for me this year, but I believe in myself and my abilities. Redundancy is just a social stigma,it’s not the end of the world. Positive thinking will keep me going, and I won’t give in until I’ve recovered my way in life. The secret is to keep engaging with people of all walks of life, sometimes a kick up the backside is what spurs you on to greater things.

  262. colin mccabe Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:22 pm

  263. Carlos Lopes Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:22 pm

    My wishes for 2014:
    EU – stop with the austerity and get some jobs going on! Production beats damage control anytime.
    World Cup – please be civilized, Brazil. This should be a great party and a way to improve the country. The chance is just there for you to take it.
    Hunger – heard something about a billion dollar investment for a huge shopping center going on in China. Don’t we have better causes to drop the funds (hint: title).
    Family – things are not great in my home country (Portugal). 2014 can’t be worse than this one financially and I really wish it doesn’t.
    Me – I would like to get a job, actually. London, help me out!

  264. Mariachiara Magri Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:23 pm

    A Great 2014 for me?
    Well, I think first of all, I would like to grow my hair , and I’m not able to withstand more than a month that I run to the hairdresser to cut them again ! Make them grow , and have a flowing mane would be wonderful. Now I also want to lose those extra pounds 2-3 , although not threaten my self-esteem , it would always be a way to increase my love life , which in 2013 was bad .I would also like to this in 2014 a new government for Italy , a serious government , which uplifts the fate of my country. I want a future here in England I wish I could express my creativity in a big agency communication; work until late at night , and taken in the morning , on projects engaging and stimulating. I would like to learn new things, beautiful and interesting things , I wish I had the time to start doing gym .I would like a summer with the sun and a Christmas with snow . oh and of course I would like to win the contest and the ipad.I also wish that every day was a good day , and every night was a good night ,I wish the guy I love would leave his wife and chose me! I wish my mother would stop with the poker and began to knit with And I wish that my sweet little nieces would stop to ask for gifts absurd. But despite this , I’m sure that 2014 will bring me more good things, and opportunities to live, with a smile, or a tear , it is important.
    I wish you a merry christmas

    2013 took away my job
    It wasn’t a very good year
    All I want is to earn a few bob
    And that will make me cheer!

  266. Steve Rabbich Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:23 pm

    Its Really Simple.I would like to be able to put all the knowledge and skills I have gained over the years to good use and if I get the opportunity to pass some of that on to people who want to learn then even better.

  267. Anthony Williams Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:24 pm

    2014 has to be the year where career dreams come alive. I don’t want to watch from the sidelines, but be an active part of the growing innovation in the media industry. More focus would be on how to effectively use the media to enhance economic growth in less developed nations through the promotion of cultural-tourism.

  268. Mark Kennedy Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:24 pm

    I’d love a job with accompany who, could except me for who I am, tinnitus or no tinnitus. It’s a struggle finding a job due to my earring issues as companies believe I’ve nothing to over. Due to my disability, i’d love to know how I could over come this issue as it not only stressful but also demoralising having work all my life. So all I wont for Christmas is an opportunity to look to a brighter future.

  269. Michael Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:25 pm

    part from winning the lottery and England winning the World Cup in Brazil, all I want to see in 2014 is my career taking shape.

    I have a relevant degree that is backed up with relevant work experience for what I want to pursue. I have applied to many job applications and have had a hand full of interviews. Maybe I am not confident enough, maybe I lack experience or maybe I am just unlucky, I really don’t know. But I am determined and all I want just like many other job hunters is to be given that golden opportunity. Let me show you what I can do!

  270. Tim Beesley Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:25 pm

    Since 2009 I’ve had my dad in a care home – almost deaf, blind and with dementia. He died in 2012. My mum has had heart and lung problems. My partner found she has the BRACC2 cancer gene and has had operations as a result, that went wrong! I finally got my 98 yr old grandmother in a home after a month in hospital with various illnesses in October. She died in December. Now have to sort out her estate! For 2014? Some peace and freedom from other’s illness and time for myself and what I need! I feel selfish saying that, but itis exhausting looking after others.

  271. Will Hopson Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:25 pm

    I would like a job that I can work hard, and develop myself and the role. I want to be able to afford to get married to my beautiful fiance. I would like to make Christmas 2014 to be the best Christmas ever for my 8 year old step son. I am a keen boxer and love what the Olympics has done for the sport, so I would love put something, back into the sport, there are some very good up and coming young prospects in my town, and I would love to have fund some of their training as the area is quite poor. Thanks

  272. Mike Jackson Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:25 pm

    Would like to find a job that will take me through to my retirement and that I will enjoy and find satisfying.

  273. Paul Chiddle Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:26 pm

    To find a new job that will allow us to be reunited as a family, please!
    Thank you very much!!!

  274. Michelle Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:26 pm

    After a year of personal grief and loss, being let down by so many recruitment agencies and the jcp, I have decided to make a life for myself in the north of Sweden. I wish to work as an IT engineer, my career choice of a lifetime, and would like to find a nice company to work for until I retire or who are willing to take me on to help me get settled over there. I also wish that recruitment agencies/HR personal would stop looking at age/time of unemployment and help push us for roles that we CAN do, not that they THINK we can do.

  275. Luis Campos Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:26 pm

    Basically finding a job which would help me develop my skills as am electrician because I have searched everywhere and there is nowhere and no way how to get help if you are older than 25 it gets much harder to find a company that will help you or fund or even help you in getting your qualification so that would be lovely to actually start the year in a high getting a job doing what I like And wen getting paid for it and obviously developing my skills

  276. Samuel Watts Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:26 pm

    Being a young person brings a lot of problems with employment. Employers prefer someone with experience and this along with some other personal issues has made 2013 a hard year for me. I believe that being young puts a person at a massive disadvantage when it comes to being employed. I hope to gain employment next year to give me my desired job within the financial sector. The opportunities this competition offers would benefit me massively. Especially the Career coaching day with Aimee Bateman and the CV makeover. I also hope that more funding and specialists are put into schemes for young people to get employed and gain experience.
    Thanks very much to total jobs for giving people opportunities for employment.
    I wish a good 2014 for myself and everyone,
    Regards Samuel Watts

  277. Kenny Jones Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:27 pm

    What do I want for 2014?

    A job I can finally call my own, after going in and out of college getting different qualifications in IT and related studies I’m hoping I can finally have a job to stand on equal ground with my peers and to prove anyone wrong while I’m at it.
    I don’t get much a chance if ever to prove myself and I’ve been more than eager to do so, just never given the shot I need.

  278. Lindsey Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:27 pm

    I would just like to have a job so that I have money to help give my daughter a better life and take her on holidays (even mini breaks over the weekend or visiting family.

  279. Bartek Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:27 pm

    Find god long term employment.

  280. Hannah Ridley Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:28 pm

    The world is a sadder place with the loss of Nelson Mandela,he was a man that knew how to give people a chance, promoted acceptance of others and showed us how to forgive. This year I lost my Grandma another beautiful person, I lost my unborn child and my job. I hope that in 2014 someone will give me a chance and offer me a job, not be prejudiced by my youth, or the fact I was pregnant at a young age,somone who will forgive my silly mistakes, accept me as I am and allow me the opportunity to work for them so I can grow, mature, build future and if Grandma is looking down on me, make her proud!

  281. Glen Arnold Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:28 pm

    what I would like to happen in the new year is to have a better chance of being able to find work and hopefully get a career and move forward and progress in life gaining experience and new skills along the way I’ve been out of work for two years since I lost my job as a painter and decorator I apply everyday to about 20 or more jobs a day and barely get about 3 employers get back to me to let me know whether I have the chance to have an interview or turn me down.

    I would like to see that everybody has a equal opportunity to be able to find work and for companies to reply back to messages left even if it is a rejection. because there’s nothing worse than applying for a job and hoping to get it and then not even get the decency to message us back to tell us that we haven’t got the job.

    it would be perfect if the government could put more funding into helping people to find work,apprenticeships or even help other to get into training to help them find their career path for future opportunities instead of wasting it on useless projects that end up blowing up in their faces and making people lose their job instead of gaining

    • kelly Friday, 20 Dec, 2013 at 3:15 pm

      I would like 2014 to be my new year. I’ve been to hell and back with employment and not getting paid. I would love a new carer and a new job even part time so i can start fresh and let my life begin once more

  282. julie pilkington Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:28 pm

    I would like 2014 to be a year of opportunity and firsts. My daughter is off to university and will be having so many first experiences and challenges. I am looking for that special job that allows me the opportunity to showcase my talents and invests in my future.

  283. tracy hindley Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:28 pm

    After 24 years doing the same job i believe that i deserve a chance to change career paths, I need a change, I deserve a change and I will achieve my goal in 2014

  284. sharon Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:29 pm

    I would like to get a job for the simple reason it would allow my family and i to have a better 2014 and onwards.
    I just need to get a flipping job! Not desperate yet but soon!
    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all.

  285. Aisha Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:29 pm

    All I want is a wickidest Job ever! Nah, Joking! The BEST Job ever working in a Office making psychological HDR Timelapse videos! But here is the thing…I made that Job up. Does such a Job exist? If so, cool and bring it on because you already have someone like me waiting to be hired. Actually hired for the first time in my life.

    Does wudu(purification) and then start making dua(prayer)……ameeeen

    Haha I attempted posting this comment like a million times and finally it’s posted. Alhamdulilah!

  286. Tom Lenham Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:29 pm

    I want to find a way to change my career – to take the experience and skills I have into a new and exciting field. I also want this webpage to work properly so I can actually post my comment!

  287. eve Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:30 pm

    I’m starting fresh in UK, I took risks and moved here. Now, I would really like to find a job and settle properly. Me and my loyal companion, Charlotte the Chihuahua ;)

  288. RICHARD SCOTT Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:30 pm

    i would like 2014 to be better than 2013 i ran my own bar in rhyl for 6 months it did not work out it nearly cost me my marriage i was working 104 hours a week i had more arguments in 6 months than i ever did in 37 years of marriage i would like to get a new job and start my life all over again as i do not like being out of work

  289. Eric Sutherland Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:31 pm

    I’d like to see politicians of all flavours stop blaming each other and start to talk the country up instead of down. I’d like to see support for the entrepreneurs and wealth makers that create the jobs we are all looking for. I’d like to see so many jobs available that recruiters have to start treating candidates with respect and take as much time and care to respond to an application as a candidate puts in to write the application – or at least actually read it all and offer some real feedback. :)

  290. Hayley Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:31 pm

    I would like to make 2014 a good year for myself any son.
    Things have been tough and I need to improve our lives.
    Winning would give me a confidence boost and help me on my way to finding a worth while job to support us both and make us happy

  291. Sandra Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:31 pm

    I want a job that’s great
    A job that I dont hate
    That feels me up with glee
    And suits me to a tee
    That pays more than the going rate
    But doesn’t make me stay back late
    That challenges my brain
    Without me going insane!

  292. Dany Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:31 pm

    All I want for me is all I want from all the people hwo will read my post.I wish for 2014 to be the best year of my life and I wish the same for all of you.

    Best wishes from me to you.

  293. adam Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:32 pm

    I would like to stop being overlooked by employers looking for cheap underqualified staff.

    And maybe a marylin monroe pose from queen lizzy.

  294. William Caton Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:32 pm

    Well in 2014 I’m getting married , we’ve just moved home after my partners mum passed away,
    To be honest it’s brought us closer together but we just struggle with compassion.
    A want to be realised of my achievements in life as a hairdresser and care assistant and struggle with both.
    What can I do?
    I need help in life with being noticed of my abilities in caring and styling :-(
    Thanks

  295. shorone walker Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:32 pm

    Well what can I say 2013 has been a rocky year for me.
    As I not long lost my job of 5years,over a silly mis understanding. I have activily been seeking work,but haven’t had any luck,though through it all still all smiles and a positive attiude hoping things will be better next year! All I could say I really want next year is a chance to progress,gain,develop and strive to be a better person and find the job my dreams are made of!!

  296. chelsey wood Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:32 pm

    I would love to see more help for young peple (18-24) with families getting into work as there isnt any help out there for those, like me that are desparate to provide for their family. On a brighter note, boris falling in the thames and dragging cameron in would be funny :)

  297. Tamarin Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:33 pm

    I would love to be blessed with a job, Not just any job (even though I’m pretty open minded) but something in which I actually use my qualifications, in which I can develop my career and move forward in life, learning constantly.

  298. SILVANA Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:33 pm

    I wish for this 2014 that i can find myself in my Dream position, and i can get it with the chance of this massive boost and with the continue everyday jobseeker that TOTALJOBS is giving me.

  299. jay adams Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:33 pm

    Firstly I want too start a new career for myself. Secondly I have become a father so I want to be able to provide my daughter with a nice, healthy life style. I also want to get into a job where I can progress and be the best I can be!

    Thanks

  300. Kirsten Vollmers Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:34 pm

    I don’t really know anybody who doesn’t deserve a bit more happiness for the next year so best of luck to everyone! It would be amazing to see more job opportunities for those of us who are honest, hard-working and just looking to make life better for those we love. I appreciate having a job but it would be wonderful to have a job that appreciated me back. It would be wonderful to be a bit happier in 2014!

  301. Louise Larcombe Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:34 pm

    2 months ago I was made redundant from the job I thought I would retire from. In 2014, at 30 years old, I will have the tough and bewildering task of finding another great job. I think I need professional help!

  302. Luke Bolland Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:34 pm

    What I would to see happen in 2014 is the discovery of a renewable energy that can sustain mans need to put planes in the air, cars on the road and heat in our homes pollution free. Which is made entirely from every day items bought at the supermarket.
    Also I’m the one that makes the discovery which gets me a Nobel prize, drinks are on me!

  303. Brian Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:34 pm

    It’s a big year…One son gets married, the other finishes University and enters a buoyant job market for his first job. I continue contracting and win some great short contracts, or secure a stellar opportunity for a new longer-term career. My football team wins the Premier League again after a 53 year gap. England do well in the Football World Cup and inspire the nation. The economic recovery gathers pace and touches all walks of UK life to give everyone a boost in their own way. My wife doesn’t buy another dog, so that we stick with owning just the one…and the vet bills calm down. And I don’t get any more Toblerones on Fathers Day.

  304. Cris Morgado Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:35 pm

    In 2014 I would like to see start-up use the power of social media and tech in order to eradicate: wars and famine.

  305. Suraj Kampli Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:35 pm

    As the job market trends indicate a upward trend in 2014, hope 2014 is a positive year for job seekers and trendsetting years for totaljobs.com

  307. Mohamed Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:35 pm

    Let’s hope the best in 2014….!! Better placement..! Better life style.!!!In 2014 I would like a positive outlook on life, something to get up in the morning for. Seems like at the minute it is just drag myself out of bed, work, sleep, repeat. I would also like people to be a bit nicer to each other and respect that everyone has an ambition to be happy

  308. Dani Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:36 pm

    All I want to do is better myself so I can provide such a great future for my three children and myself. I haven’t been able to afford to pay for a course myself due to the cost of living, everyone always tells me I’m a bright person but I have never believed in myself. Now that my confidence has grown I want the best in lif, confidence is roaring, people say I have a professional approach, I want to use it all to it’s full potential and get out there and show people what I can do :)

  309. Mark webb Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:36 pm

    hi all, what i would want for the year (2014) is well my mum just had a weight loss operation so i would want her to reach her goal weight and finally be able to run around and be able to play with her two grand kids plus my sister just got enaged to her bf so i would want her to be happy and get married also i would want my granny to be be cured of cancer as she is in her third lot of cancer and finally i would want to get a job as i love to work and need and want a job because i have been on the benefits system for almost 4 years and i know from personal experience that when u are on the system for as long as i have been on it can really damge your self confidence and get you really depressed and lastly i really want or countries in the uk to finally give everyone the chance at getting a job so no one can feel the way i have felt for the past 3 years.

  310. Tony Holmes Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:36 pm

    I am a fully qualified chef with 2nd regional prize award for the midlands 1992. I left the career due to having a young family. I have gained considerable experience in many lines of work since. My children are grown up now and I would love to get back into the career that I have a flair and passion for but I think employers consider that because I haven’t been working in a kitchen for a while that my skills may be dated and I would burn the soup. I turn 50 years of age next year, I don’t want to be recycling fridges or picking and packing although it seems we have to be grateful to have ‘any’ employment right now. Next year if I don’t find an employer that recognises me as the great chef that I am then I will utilise my skills with my own business.

  311. sana ali Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:37 pm

    I want a new job but more than that i want peace in the world,i want everybody to stop hating each other and stay happy:)

  312. Nebian Gashi Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:37 pm

    A lot of fellows nowadays have a B.A., M.D., or Ph.D. Unfortunately, they don’t have a J.O.B.
    However I’m lucky that this does not apply to me…
    I do not want a J.O.B.
    2014 will bring a C.A.R.E.E.R. instead…..
    So it’s looking all rosy ahead!!!
    Oh and an iPad Air or an Acer Laptop I would not dread!!!! :)

  313. Cris Morgado Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:37 pm

    In 2014 I would like to see a start-up emerge using the power of social media and tech in order to end wars and famine.

  314. Pam B Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:38 pm

    I want a new job where everyone is full of life, chat about everything under the sun, including work, working as a team and takes on older people because we are not useless – we are just full of positive information and skills.

  315. Cara Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:38 pm

  318. Isaac Elesia Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:39 pm

    Being an oldman of 58, i am feeling as if the job market is no place for oldman. I have attended many unsuccessul job interviews and have volunteered and work for nothing for nearly one year without securing any job.My computer is gone for good and the local library only allow half an hour to use their computer. My confidence is at rock bottom, and it seems to me the God has turn his back on me. Thanks to totaljobs advice, i feel that 2014 will be a better year for me.

  319. Danny OKeeffe Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:39 pm

    I want to find the job that offers me the next step in my career, I don’t just want the 9-5, I want something to make my career thrive!

    In 2014, I would like the simple things in life to blossom…

    A Family, to be started
    A Career, to be enjoyed
    A feeling of fulfillment from the above, to drive my commitment to them all!

  320. Shaniqua B Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:39 pm

    I would like to set my plans in motion, so that I can finally achive my goals and eventually reach the final destination of the life journey I’ve been on. Hopefully I will finally find the job I’d love to do and get my writing fully under way.

    I would like to build my career in an established organisation, get a good starting salary and have the opportunity to develop my skills, meet new people and have the life I was always dreaming!

  324. Ope Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:40 pm

    2014 would be a better year than 2013 with a ‘can do’ attitude. It begins from within, changing our minds, surrounding ourselves with inspiring people and images in order to be a success. Knowing and believing we can get the job we want with hard work and perseverance. Never giving up or becoming complacent but delivering our best, 100% in everything..

  325. stephen foale Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:41 pm

    I want the world!

    I want rid of the government!

    I want the world to be a happy place!

    I want no war!

    I want people to see the truth!

    but…

    I want never gets!!!

  326. Hollie - Apprentice (Business and Administration Level 2) Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:41 pm

    I always strive to give my all, I am currently on an apprenticeship in an office environment. However, I fear that I will not be given my full-time paid wage when my course ends May 2014. I am entering this competition as I hope I can find something with some stability.

    I enjoy what I am doing, and hope in the New Year that isn’t taken from under my feet.

    However, I count myself lucky this year to have the most amazing boyfriend, his little boy and a roof over our heads.

  327. Kayleigh Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:42 pm

    I would like a decent paying job so I can save up for a house with my boyfriend which we will turn into our home and start our family together.

  328. Paul Eldridge Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:42 pm

    I would like to get any job I have been unemployed for 5years now it good be my age is 46years and my mother is widow and I would like get a job to help her and myself.

  329. Ms Powell Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:42 pm

    Personally for 2014 I would like to be in a job that firstly gives me joy and fulfillment and secondly financial security. I have always worked in jobs that involve helping others and I have recently attempted to set up my own business in order to help people.

    For 2014 I would like to see improvements in our society as a whole. Less crime and more love, kindness and compassion.

    As a child I always asked questions like “Why are we here?” and I believe my purpose is in life is to make a difference in this world.

  330. brendan quinn Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:42 pm

    To wake up on new years day to news that the worlds governments wised up, banks realise its not actually their money and they have things called customers who pay their wages. Companies who have stockpiled loads of cash release it, start investing in people and begin to invest in development and expansion. The Press realise that talking about doom and gloom makes everyone feel negative. New Year New Vision, Let everyone wake up in the morning with a smile on their face.

  331. J Ali Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:43 pm

    McGregors theory X and theory Y is an interpretation of how our work days go by
    ‘I hate my job’ ‘I just work to get paid’ you guys fall into category X
    ‘I love my job’ ‘my standards are high’ this group fall into category Y
    So how can WE make a significant change last, where category X is a thing of the past??
    Just think of what you love the most – and in this area, search for a particular job post!!
    With help from the great recruitment firms around, Your perfect job will soon come round
    Wouldn’t it be great for all of us to see, people working in jobs with pride and glee
    So make a change if you hate your job now, Search for a job that will make you say wow!!
    It’s ok if it didn’t work out in 2013, a new year is ahead of us, lets make a change in 2014
    2014 – Everyone loves the job they are in.

  332. Nabin Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:43 pm

    As I know that every ever have been more or less challenging year for me through out lots of challenges I have more or less succeeded on in .
    As I believe life = problem problem = solution solution = success success = achievement so more or less every year have been somehow a achievement year for be weather it’s on my desired field or on undesired field so I hope this year to be a most challenging year to me but I will be very pleased if all the challenges will be on the field of my interest which will surly help me to achieve something on my career and which help to enhance my knowledge and ability for next problem, which will lead to make me more able to get the job of my desire one day .
    Looking forward to it in the coming year 2014.

    I am hoping and Praying that I can fined a Job early in 2014 so that I can reunite my family that I left in the Philippines and bring them to a colder climate in the UK. The earlier the better because my son(16) has never seen snow!

  335. Peter Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:44 pm

    The year 2014 will be extra great if I succeed in transforming the ‘easy to learn’ BRIDGE lessons I wrote into a website and/or an app, so that bridge – one of the best mind sport games – becomes more accessible to everyone. Sporting in great, adding a mind sport to your activities is better!

  336. S. Thomas Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:44 pm

    Since I already have a degree in Bsc Computing, what seems the most difficult is proving I have the competencies to become a Business-project Analyst when a quarter of my degree actually focussed on Business Studies at management-analysis depth.

    For 2014 I would value support seeking to gain internships, more work experience and paid employment… at present even a 1st class honours seems to go unnoticed under a see of 100+ applicants applying for the same jobs and assumptions that I only code, design websites and utilise databases (not my strengths, yet I have received 15+ calls all telling them I am business studies oriented not a computer coder).

    I have been in education for 13 years and I know I have made a difference in the lives of the students I have taught over the years, but I know I could do more if I were out of the classroom. I want to make a difference the helps our society grow and give our children a future of possibilities.

  338. Emma Barrett Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:45 pm

    I would to get job within administration, gain more experience to enhance my C.V. Whilst doing this, I would like to AAT distance learning course, progressively learning more skills, and move from general administration to more financial. I cant see me being able to achieve more than this in 2014 but if possible, I would to like continue through the AAT levels and become a fully qualified accountant and find a career more suited to my skills and personality. Once this is achieved I can start paying back to all those have helped me get this far.

  339. Antony Del Sette Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:45 pm

    2014 is a year that will determine what kind of man I can become. It is a year that will bring me a new home, a new career and most importantly a new member of my family. The future is very exciting in the Del Sette household. Goodbye to the days of adolescent weekends and lazy weekdays. 2014 is a year for me to become someone I have never been before. Somebody for a child to grow up and aspire to be. To be able to be a man that my child would be proud of. That is my only wish.

  340. Jacqueline Williams Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:45 pm

    Having been a jack of all things within an office I would like to find out where my talents really lay. Perhaps have some retraining, find a new path ! I really could do with some professional help to direct my efficiency.

  341. Virginie Lacoste Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:46 pm

    I would love to see a change in the workplace around the world. I wish for everyone to have a competive, fair and rewarding position within their skillsets. A position where they will be treated with respect, be given a fair salary and provided with the opportunity for growth. In return I would like to see employees who will be respectful of their peers and supervisors. Employees who will behave maturelly and offer employers a competent, driven, proactive and respectful employee/ candidate.
    The perfect job or the perfect employee requires team work from both party.

  342. Valerio P. Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:46 pm

    This year I move to London, so it was really exciting! Why not make it even better?

  343. George Isibor Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:46 pm

    Firstly, 2013 has not been so great for me but it has only made me stronger and resilient, I worked in the service industry for 4years after many disappointments, I made a transition in July 2013 into the IT industry but it has been really hard to get a contract/job because am a newly qualified IT professional and most company need experienced people. This has affected me so bad because I need to support my young family. I am married, have daughter but unemployed and have lost my place as the bread winner of my beloved family. So life for me at the moment is very hard but I will never give up I am still fighting to sharpen my skills, chase knowledge and finish the year very strong. Come 2014, I want more IT company to invest into apprenticeship scheme,and also give room for young talent. I quote sometimes it is not ‘how far but rather it is how well’. The trials, lows and down I have been through since 2013 has taught me a great lesson in life so I am preparing for 2014 and for those people out there going through the same tragedy and pains as me, I have a message for you. Hold on to your goals and stay true to it never give up because 2014 is your year of accomplishments. Just decide: Commit: Succeed, remember ‘No Guts No Glory’. Have a great holiday, merry Xmas to everyone and to total jobs for the support and encouragement through out this year and I hope you all bought your turkey yet :) Thanks. George

    On a social note, world peace and more tolerance for our fellow man. A global upturn in GDP to eliminate deficits worldwide.

    Workwise, a Training Contract or alternatively a well paid enjoyable job close to home.

    At home, a new conservatory to stop the house from being so cold in the winter and reduce my ever increasing utility bills

  347. Mark Webb Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:47 pm

    what i would want for 2014, well firstly i would want my mum who just had a weight loss operation to finally reach her goal weight and be able to run around and play with her two grand kids, my granmother has just entered into her third lot of cancer so i would love for here to be cured of it, my sister has just got engaged to her bf and i would want her to be happy entirely and lastly what i would want, all i want is to get a job as i have been unemployed for the past 4 years and i have been on the benefits system which i dont like now yes it has kept me alive but if anyone who has been on it knows that it can seriously damage your self confidence to apply for work when they ask for sooo much for the requirements plus it can really make u depressed and finally i would want everyone to have the opportunity to get a job and be happy with it

  348. K.GOLDER Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:48 pm

    Daily News : The Government has today announced the latest unemployment figures it remains at 0% , however there is no room for complacency as there are still some vacancies.

    I would like for 2014, that everyone who has been searching, interviewed been told NO,finds a suitable position in a satisying role and lives happily ever after, this includes myself. A happy and successful new year wish to all.

    I have graduated from University studying Game Art Design. I have the skills and passion to follow a career in this industry, I just lack the knowledge of how to apply to companies the right way.This competition would be a real boost for me to one day find my place in the Games Industry.

    I would like a job so I can go and see my family because I have not seen them for over 6 years and to live again after a long time of unemployment.

  358. Dalie M Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:51 pm

    Dear 2013, the struggle’s been REAL! So 2014, could you please be a little more gentle in your dealings with me. Especially in regards to my not having to worry about whether I’m going to have food on my table the next day, or a roof on my head in a couple of months. A decent job in a respectable company, coupled with loads of fun and humour, and some good ol’ general elections results, as well as some real social progress in this country would do all of us a lot of good too don’t ya think? So I’ma raise my glass to a year filled with less drama, and more peace, love, joy, STRENGTH and hope. Again the struggle’s been real…and I think now’s the time I got me some blessings. “Can I get an Amen?”. And the crowd gleefully shouted AMEN!

  359. Aaron Chambers Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:51 pm

    i would like the opportunity to reach for the stars in my endeavours, live life to the fullest and share those dreams and aspirations with those close to me, life is to short to waste on negative views and opinions, 2014 should be the year of growth and prosperity and finding one’s niche in life…wish me luck!!!!

    i want a career that gives me a sense of pride in what i do. A job which is interesting and gives me a chance to utilize what i have learnt. A job which gives me a feeling of satifaction and achievement at the end of the day.

  361. SABA ALI Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:51 pm

    i would like to see employers give people without ‘experience’ a chance. Every job i look at nowadays states experience required but if we dont get given a chance to be employed without experience, how are we supposed to gain it??? And no, not everyone is ‘rich’ enough to work voluntary so they can gain experience!

  367. Fermin Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:54 pm

    In 2014 it will be good if employers stop using the economic crisis to lower their salaries, cut on staff and squeeze their employees. This will stop people taking time off because of stress.
    I would like to see in 2014 real Equal Opportunities regardless of length of unemployment, disabilities, or age. As we are suppose to work until later years in our life, it is time that this new reality starts to show, right now it is only tactical decisions.
    All the above will allow us to be part of the “real world” and contribute to the growth of the country. Getting a correct salary will allow us to spend not only for our own satisfaction but also for the growth of the whole country and economy.

    i would be very happy if electricity bills could be ruduced and tax should be lifted from students salaries in 2014.

  372. Seo Y Yang Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:56 pm

    I was born in Seoul, South Korea – one of the most competitive cities in the world. My parents were strict and so was I to myself to keep my performance at school. When I was 15, I left Korea and have lived and studied in the US, Austria, Germany and the UK and the competition never stopped. As a result of sleepless nights, I speak three languages fluently, have a master’s degree from LSE (graduated from 2012) and completed an internship at Deutsche Bank. But I am still unemployed.
    In 2014, I am turning 30 in the Korean age – Koreans calculate the age differently (In fact, I am 28 in the ‘Western’ age). From a very early age, I was always competing. I used to say that I had such a happy childhood but I am even questioning it. I also often ask myself, what I could do differently – maybe I should not have changed university in 2008; maybe I should have gone to Germany a bit earlier. Maybe I should have listened to my heart rather than trying to make my parents happy by listening to them all the time. What if, what if, what if…
    But believe me. I am not staying at home crying, recalling the past and thinking what I could have done differently. I get up early, try to stay in shape (mentally and physically), contact recruit agencies and keep myself updated in my area. I always do my best and I can say that I really have done all I could in 2013, although it was not successful.
    I will keep doing my best in 2014 until I feel that there was nothing else I could do more. But I really want to find a position in 2014, where I will be challenged and supported to grow further; where I can utilize my knowledge and experience at workplace; where I can call a day with a feeling that I have learned something that day. There are a couple of things which are waiting until I find a job and I wish they would happen in 2014. I am currently not in such a good relationship with my parents because they don’t understand what I am doing – I want to be the good child again by showing that I can do it. And I will get married – I did not want the marriage to be an escape from my situation and my partner and I have been waiting for me to have my career started. My partner has been very supportive in this stressful time and now I want to show him that his effort has not been worthless.
    I would really appreciate some professional and detailed support in my job search. I would really appreciate that.

  373. Sandra Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:56 pm

    In 2014 I would love:-
    . cures for terminal illnesses
    . people having more time for one another again and community spirits returning
    . greed that causes wars to stop so we can have world peace
    . people seeking work (including me) to find a job to enable them to return to “live, love and laughter”
    . natural disasters such as droughts, forest fires and Tsunami’s to end
    . starvation and homelessness sorted worldwide

    For me to win this competition would mean one less thing from the above for me to hope for and realistically in the sad situation that we are accustomed to live in is statistically probably more likely!!!

  374. Stephen Beswick Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:56 pm

    For once I’d like a permenent job with good hours.

  375. lisa bailey Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:57 pm

    Id love to get a job that has half decent hours, i love my job in the care industry making people smile, helping them and seeing the smile on there face makes me know in doing my job so well, but the hours are so long upto 12 hour shifts 4-5 times a week. Its so hard.. What would make my year is to get a job that pays slightly more in which i can improve my skills & knowledge. And so that i don’t have to do such long hours just to earn money to help me to pay my bills! And so i can occasionally treat myself and get my hair done and feel nice and human again! :)

  376. Will Rayner Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:57 pm

    I would like to begin a career in the field I like, move into my own flat, remove the “long distance” part from my long distance relationship and, most importantly, make her very happy!

    (I would also quite like to win one of the prizes)

  377. Christopher Hughes Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:57 pm

    Firstly what a great idea for a competition and some amazing prizes!

    As for seeing change in 2014 I really want to see a much friendlier and welcoming world when it comes for looking and applying for a job. It shouldn’t be a daunting process or something we feel nervous about. A job should be the place which completely turns around and eradicates this belief I see most people carry around which boils down to “I’m not good enough”. I want to see people not afraid to enjoy their jobs, I want to see positive work environments where the company is basically like a family where people work together, get ‘in the zone’ and really offer value to not only the company but themselves and the people around them.

    I want to see employees (and employers)recognised for the value they have and offer and where we all well and truly work together, have understanding, connection and fun. Passion is what I want to see from everyone, no longer do we need to walk in to work with our heads down or worrying about our “superiors”.

    I lost my job at the favourite place I worked, it was a call centre basically a Claims Management Company but it was at its high point a fun environment where we worked hard but had a laugh, if anyone’s seen the show The Call Centre you’ll know what I mean. The best times were when the manager and I were on an equal level, respected each others role and position and could at the same time talk to about our interests.

    I had been late over the course of two years a number of times and this is why ultimately I was dismissed, I still think they made a bad decision as I really was on their side so to speak. Its a shame that one department can rule over who should stay or go. Despite being willing to do overtime, an extra hour every day for a week to make up for any past lateness which would make me have worked way over the normal times.

    There is a dark side which isn’t noticed where people are discriminated against and judged and I honestly think if it was down to a vote of whether I should have stayed or gone that 99% of that company or team would have kept me.

    If I didn’t value something worthwhile I normally wouldn’t care but when you lose something good it does hit and hurt you especially if you know a company is making a harsh decision. I lost a good job and they lost a great employee.

    I want to see less patronisation and intimidation from employers, more easy goingness yet still have those steel boundaries there which are set out and demonstrated from the get go.

    Overall the employer and employee should be in a win win mindset and in fact the employers should be treated like human beings not a dogs body that can easily be replaced. Nothing beats an environment where everyone is like friends and family, might seem unrealistic but I have seen some of the best managers dismissed or leave and it is sad when things change.

    Some of these policies in companies are ridiculous and there are departments which don’t always need to exist.

    Thanks for taking the time to read such a lengthy rant, something I have wanted to get off my chest for a long time. @ChrisHughesy

    I am looking forward to year 2014 optimistically in the belief that it will bring ‘good tidings’and success in securing desired employment.
    After years of accepting ‘unwanted’ employments just for the reasons of making ends meet, I would like to see myself in a happy, fulfilling and rewarding job in 2014.

  382. Andy Clarke Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:59 pm

    I would like to see the recruitment market regulated. A contract signed by a Director of the hiring company and recruiter/agency, robust JDs with salary ext details, no ads with no live jobs, a time scale, interview expenses – all to focus the hiring companies and recruited – and to prevent CV ‘fishing’. Oh, and ageism, sexism and racism removed completely so that we move to true meritocracy to win the global race. This will rid the system of friction (inefficiency based on rogue and incompetent processes at the candidates cost).

  383. LUEREX GONSALVES Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 1:59 pm

    thanks peace out

  385. Margaret Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:00 pm

    I would love a job that gave people a chance to prove them self they look at there cv and say no you have not got what we’re looking for why do they do that especially when you have some experience employers should give every one a change to work

  386. Matthew Gow Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:00 pm

    Friends and family are there to support me.
    Negative things happen! accept it and move on.
    Don’t forget to smile :-)

  391. Anton Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:01 pm

    I don’t expect to be wealthier, or healthier, or more fulfilled in 2014; what I do expect is that I shall be more grateful for what I’ve got and more dedicated to becoming a better person and a more effective manager. There are some things which I think would make 2014 a good year for job hunters, including:-

    a) HR departments are obliged to respond to ALL job applicants and all unsuccessful interviewees given feedback from prospective employers.

    b) It becomes compulsory for companies not only to offer apprenticeships but to offer a guaranteed contract of employment upon their successful completion.

    c) Everyone over 50 is given a guaranteed interview for any job they apply for.

    d) October 3rd becomes a public holiday. It’s my birthday, and everyone is authorised to party on!

    e) Champagne becomes available on prescription.

  392. Jenny Reid Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:02 pm

    That an employer will give me the ability to be able to have the courage to be committed to co-operate with consciousness. To work fairly and honourably and to respect people.

  393. Martin Wheeler Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:02 pm

    2014 has to be a better year.
    My last exciting project finished in June and I spent the next few weeks searching but also coping with loosing both my father and uncle. The last month has been sorting my fathers affairs and now I intend to start 2014 with positive thoughts and a position that will give job satisfaction together with making a mark in which ever business who wants me!!

  394. Joanna Wade Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:02 pm

    2013 has been an up and down year for me, My Mum passed away suddenly in April which brought great sadness to my family but in September I gave birth to my second daughter bring great joy to us all.
    I am due to be made redundant in March 2014 and really want to find a career that will fulfil my potential, challenge me and make my time away from my two daughters worthwhile.

  395. Atif Ahmed Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:03 pm

    I believe that tomorrow is always better as I can do tomorrow what I failed in yesterday! In 2014, I’d like to see change in a way of recruiting employees. I want to see recruiter setting interviews everywhere. For example, I’m from Egypt, currently live in Oman, so no one is able to come and interviewing me. I have to apply for visa and travel and pay lots of money, and then get rejected! So I would be a great idea that recruiters who can arrange interview in our places, so people will get know more about them and to broaden the way of employing.

    I want to work for a company that inspires me, that has a culture that nurtures talent and appreciates hard work and commitment ! I would like to professionally grow within an organisation that is not afraid of change and innovation and who is willing to collaborate and listen to ideas that it’s employees generate. If this doesn’t happen then I will of course win the lottery and set up an animal rescue centre, the end !

    What i would like in 2014. I would love for someone to take a chance on me .
    I’m hard working trustworthy and reliable. I served in the royal armoured corps/ kings royal hussars for 6 years and i got a glowing report from them.You think this would help me get a job but it doesn’t I’ve lost track of how many cv’s i’ve sent or business’s ive called into. It makes me wonder if I made the right decision joining the army or should I of just gone to college as I could have a trade behind me now. I know times are hard at the moment and I should count my blessings that we all have are health but my health does not pay the bills and we are struggling to pay the bills, which is causing tension between me and my partner and which is upsetting my little girl as she picks up on it. Even though we try to be positive and stay strong it’s hard. I’m a proud man and don’t want to sign on but i feel like I’m being pushed into it . I like working hard for my money and not scrounging of others. Maybe I’m doing something wrong or im going about it the wrong way . I would love nothing more than to be able to give my partner the great news that I’m in full time contracted work and she no longer needs to worry. There would be less stress at home and we could enjoy being a family and not have to worry. I’d also love to be able to treat my 2 year old daughter like a princess every now and again( but only if she is good lol ). Anyway I don’t care what job I do either as I’m not picky. From workin in drainage covered in allsorts to working in an office. A jobs a job at the end of the day aslong as it’s fulltime and is contracted thats all that matters. Sorry if I’ve gone on a little I’m just really frustrated and upset as I’m trying my hardest to do everything right honestly but nothing works. Anyway who ever took the time to read this merry Christmas and have a happy new year . I hope 2014 brings you lots of luck and happiness…. All the best

    I just want a job to kick start my career in life.

    I have been mum for 10 years now……I would like to be working mum from 2014

  400. Abdul-Karim Ali Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:04 pm

    What I would like to happen in 2014, is for money and success to become abundant in my life and that all my dreams as ambitious as they may be can come in to reality. I also know that it is not impossible for those things to happen it’s simply a matter of dedication and wanting it bad enough with those two qualities pushing you, you could surely complete any task at hand, I know that I will. In 2014 I will become the man I’ve always dreamed of being In every aspect, that is what I know will happen, what I would like to happen is for me to win this competition so it can push me closer to realising my dreams.

  401. John J Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:04 pm

    My life’s been a roller coaster of highs and lows, like everyone else i guess. I have a very specialist unconventional skill and work has dive bombed since the recession kicked in. No amount of job sites, employment agencies or online searching can help me. I feel isolated from the rest of the working population and population in general and yet i feel and know i have so much to offer.
    It’s easy when working to criticise those out of work. However, we don’t all fit snugly into a pigeon hole, we are all different, with different lives, circumstances and skills….

  402. Steven Downie Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:05 pm

    I am hoping that 2014 can provide me with the opportunity (in recruitment) that I have been searching for. An opportunity to work, even if it means on commission only. As long as I am given a platform to work with, then I can start to work towards my goal of creating success in my work grow so I can give them something back for the opportunity they have given me. But its all about being given an opportunity which are few and far between unfortunately.

  403. Jon Tabb Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:05 pm

    I would like to recover from my major spinal surgery in time for the new year, where I can find an employer that does not judge me for my “disability”, unlike the one that is trying to get rid of me. all I ask for is to be given the chance to prove myself and earn a decent living wage for me, my partner and my adopted son at six years of age,(his father died of cancer two years ago).

  404. Gemma Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:05 pm

    My favourite quote

    “Problems cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them” Einstien.

    This is why I am entering this competition; in 2014 I am going to pro-actively take steps to make a change to my life. I believe that with guidance and the correct tools, I will be find a job that fulfils me, which I have no doubt have a domino effect on my personal life.

    In 2014 my aim is to be happy, healthy and successful.

  405. Ian Butterfield Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:06 pm

    I would like to return to employment and do the job I have trained for and want to do again.
    This will let me provide for my young family and give us the chances to become a happy family again.

  406. Beth Thomas Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:06 pm

    I would like to finish my legal qualification and join a career path that will allow me to protect and preserve human rights.

    I am currently going to struggle to do this as I am trying to find the funds to complete my course; the cuts to legal aid also mean that the employers I want to target are actually making cut backs, not hiring more people into this essential but overlooked element of our legal system. I am however determined to pursue this worthwhile and fulfilling path.

  407. Halima shahzad Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:06 pm

    I want everyone to live in peace, i want everyone to get along with each other regardless their skin colour, height, weight or background. I wish this would happen in 2014 then ther would be less murders, less terrorist attacks and no more hate.

  408. stephen holmes Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:06 pm

    I need to diversify as i get older i need a job that’s not physically demanding this could lead to the training i will need . fingers crossed.

  409. Ricci Lowe Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:07 pm

    I would like to get on the degree course i’m after doing and become a full time design engineer instead of ‘king of CAD’ which is the title i currently hold!

  410. Dani Chitty Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:07 pm

    I would like to see the Global Economy pick up from this recession which would in turn create new career opportunities and subsequent success for all those (including myself) out of work.

    Also, I wish that President Obama finds a way to make Obamacare work price-wise by lifting up state restrictions for health insurance companies therefore driving competition and making healthcare more affordable to those middle class families that can pay for some of it, with free healthcare schemes, initiatives and clinics for those who are victim to extreme socio-economic poverty. Healthcare is at the core of freedom, i.e. not just for the rich, if we are to call ourselves part of the developed world, we simply can’t allow our sick to go dying in the street or worse destitute their families for a generation to acquire necessary life saving/prolonging treatment.

    For Britain, I’d like there to be less xenophobic feeling towards Eastern Europeans “coming over here and stealing our jobs”. They are simply looking for ways to prosper for the well being of themselves and their families. People have been doing this for generations in the history of the world, so why should they be treated with such hatred for doing no different than many of our ancestors did years ago?

    In terms of war on terror, I wish there to be a global united conflagration to those whose only wish is to spread hate and terror to the majority who want to live peacefully in this world. Only then can we reach a place of enlightenment and push forward to the next period in the history of man. This would also require a total disarmament of biological, radiological and chemical weapons of mass destruction. As well as this, our dictators need to be reached out to, to free the people trapped within their own home countries.

    There are many more issues at hand that need to be solved but if anyone of these were to be solved or even the back broken of it then I know it would be a successful year of the new millennia.

  411. Daniel Bass Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:07 pm

    I have 2 NVQ levels in hairdressing and college certificates in health & safety and safe moving and handling.
    yet it seems it all accounts for nothing when you go to see an employer at an interview because they believe you do not have enough experience.

    Since having my hairdressing NVQs i have not been able to find a job in that industry and have had to train myself through mobile work by styling/colouring hair for friends and relatives.

    what i would like to see a change in 2014 is to give people the opportunity to prove themselves rather than get turned away at the sight of having no experience so that people can actually get ahead in their careers and their lives.

  412. Sigrid Marceau Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:07 pm

    I would like red skies at night, offering Shepherds delight, not just for Christmas but the whole of next year. Joy and security for all those held dear to me, bringing opportunity, rest and cheer.

  413. zeki demir Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:08 pm

    I want 2014 be the peaceful year for the whole world.Hunger free and a good year especially for our country economically.I want to see happy working faces without worry aboit their rents shopping or other expenses.I want younger people feeling safe about their future.At least a start for my dreams …2014 should be much better than past…

  414. Joshua Georgas Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:08 pm

    In 2014 I would like to see work and currency become redundant. In 2014 I would love to be able to achieve goals that we don’t necessarily have time for because of work. I want to see a utopian world where there is no financial stress and corruption, where there is no pressure to need to find a career path. In 2014 I want to be able to follow my dreams.

  415. Sue Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:08 pm

    Dear Totaljobs,

    What will make 2014 better for me is a new laptop worth £679.99 and I also feel that a day’s career coaching with Job Academy host Aimee Bateman will be priceless. An ipad Air will be handy when I am on the move. A smart interview outfit from Debenham would be really nice and a new hairstyle from Toni & Guy. I also feel my CV needs a fuller makeover. A selection of career advise book will help heaps and offer me good advises and I love Marks and Spencers food, so that will be good for my lunch. I hope that Totaljobs can help me boost my career chance in 2014 and help me find and secure a job through the site, 2014 will be just much better with all these things (just joking). But I do appreciate if I could get all these wonderful gifts from Totaljobs :D , as I do feel it can help in my career path. 2013 hasn’t been exactly a good year even though I have a job and I do enjoy working, it is not exactly the career choice I truely want as my dream job is to be a Designer. So I hope 2014 will be the year when my dream come true. Thank you for reading and have a great 2014.

  416. Rita Lawson Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:08 pm

  418. Nadia Picard-Cook Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:09 pm

    My three wishes are my little boy of 17 months growing out of his terrible twos, a happy marriage and the icing on the “chocolate” cake… to be ultimately the One offered the job.
    This is what I would like to see happen in 2014.

  419. Mrs Ngumbur Abudar Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:09 pm

    I would like a Job in my career in 2014 that would help me alleviate the poverty of so many people around me. I am born to lend to many people. I would like 2014 to be that year that my life will make a positive difference to many. I declare 2014 to be my year of positive impact to many, Totaljobs help me achieve this.

  420. Ayo Oduseun Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:10 pm

    There is nothing more frustrating than unfulfilled career dreams,it is more challenging especially when you invested time, resources and effort all in the hope that at the end of it all, the career change will be well worth it.

    Unfortunately this is my predicament, but only for a short while though, why because perseverance shows character which in turn leads to result sooner or later! I am positive that 2014 will deliver for me, after all i am giving it all i have got and more…..!

  421. Michael Hurd Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:10 pm

    I Graduated in 2003 as a computer network engineer in Sydney Australia. I worked as an IT Project manager/ IT manager for four years in Australia before my ex partner was severely injured in a car accident leaving me to care for her full time, until our relationship broke down in 2011. In 2012 I met a wonderful woman who I married and would like her to very much join me here.I move to England for a fresh start and hoped to get back into The IT industry. So far after a year of searching and over 1000 job applications and only 3 interviews still no IT job. At present I’m working as a temporary worker as an assembler to earn an income. I would like to find my dream job in 2014. And I would very much like my wife to join me

  422. Adnan Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:11 pm

  423. Robert de Souza Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:11 pm

    Firstly, I’d like to apologise in advance for the essay!

    I believe the enterprising, entrepreneurial characteristics should be heavily incorporated into a new type of career position.

    I’m not exactly sure how this could be structured… It could be some sort of division in the company or even a separate company who allocates development projects and related projects to individuals with resources and help. These projects will encourage the skills of that individual. Maybe there’s another way to go about it, I’m not sure, but, I believe it’s possible and should be done to help a large and growing demographic of people. Employers should look at the candidates as individuals who could dramatically influence the company, and potentially a very valuable asset.

    Entrepreneurs are very stubborn in getting a job. They tend to understand the concept of working for others are quite pointless and have the view of “why should I work for anybody else, to get them more wealth, when I could be doing it myself?”.

    I believe by developing a new type of career position, it will have multiple benefits;
    - The companies, venture capitalists, etc who develop or take on this new style of employment will see a wave of incredibly enthusiastic individuals who can add huge value and potentially come up with some incredible products or services for them to use…
    - It will help entrepreneurs stay completely focused, have a perfect environment to develop their own ideas for themselves and for the company they’re working for…
    - It will also encourage people who aren’t necessarily entrepreneurial to step forward and take destiny and wealth into their own hands…

    I think to encourage companies to do this; there should be a huge influence from a NEW section of government who helps nurture this idea.

    This would be ideal for people like me who want to develop huge brands and companies, as we’ve all got to begin somewhere, and if people like me (or potentially like me) are looking for a job, this would suit them perfectly.

    To conclude, I believe everybody should own a business; whether it’s a lifestyle business or a potentially large brand! I think this will push the economy further and make everybody very self motivated, with a good income and grow this country dramatically.

    ROBERT DE SOUZA, 19, LONDON.

  424. Geofff Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:11 pm

    I want employers to maintain their ageist attitudes for just a few more months. My job seeker’s allowance runs out on my 60th birthday. Roll on retirement and the easy life.

  425. Aleksandr Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:11 pm

    It’s great opportunity for everyone to get new life! In this case NEW life means – new job, very good job – job of your dream! So, if you can get job of your dream – you can reach what ever you dream are! Many people want to change their life, and it’s possible! In 2014 I want to get proper IT job, driving license, and my own house! I wish a good luck to everyone! Be lucky, and be happy!

  426. Micheline Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:12 pm

    To chose my CV because of 2 criteria:
    1- I worth the vacancy & new potential employer would do everything to retain me
    2- it was sent through totaljobs

  427. John Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:12 pm

    I would like the company that took me on in December to keep me on after the Christmas rush is over.after all a job should be for life,(oh those were the days).I’d also like to see everyone looking for work,get an interview,that is the best feeling,to know that a company wants to potentially hire you.
    Then after.the interview,even if you didn’t get the position to give feedback on it,an email takes seconds,who else has sat by the phone/computer waiting?.
    Finally I’d love to see someone in no.ten with the guts to put Britain back at the top,and not be dictated to by USA and Brussels.
    Come on, Britain can be great again,all we need is determination.

  428. Reuben Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:12 pm

    I’d like 2014 to be the year that I’m not afraid to just go for it…

    The year where we realise that being realistic is the same thing as giving up.

    The year where we finally realise that our real job is to connect to people, to interact with them in a way that leaves them better than we found them.

    The year where we become so obsessed with serving and helping others with their dreams, that our own fall naturally in to place.

    The year where our work week feels more like a work day. and our monday mornings have more of a good time friday afternoon feel – a “what am I going to achieve this week?” kind of frame of mind.

    I think thats unrealistic enough to aim for….?

  429. Alexandru Anghelina Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:13 pm

    Best thing I could hope for in 2014 is to get the job I want and use my 1st paycheck to buy my girlfriend a proper ring to ask her to marry me. That would make 2014 a best year of my life so far.

  430. felicity gradidge Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:13 pm

    In 2014 I would love to see myself get back on my own two feet and be happy with a new carer which I will throw myself into.
    As well as helping the people who helped me through of rough times of the year just past to say a HUGE thank you for being there for me.

  431. Jackie Cooper Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:14 pm

    I would like 2014 to bring about a fairer economy, where 0 contracted hours and part time vacancies are not the norm, but more oppotunities of full time positions and national minimum wage increased for everyone. This would hopefully bring more money into the economy as more people would be able to spend and put back into the economy, to keep the cycle going, along with the ability to be able to afford prescription charges.

    I would then like to see progresion moving forward for those, like myself, who are more creative and jobs avaliable for people who do not have an academic mind, but are willing to work hard to achieve good things, creative skills can produce as much productivity as academic skills just needs to be honed the right way.

  432. Natalie Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:14 pm

    I would like to see a permanent job and I would also like to continue working within employability and maybe train to be an advisor to help with long term unemployed to help them take the step into first time job roles

  433. Erika Hunyadi Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:14 pm

    I would like to get a job where I do not have to scare about I will lose it. I would like to get a job where I can feel I am useful and I can improve my knowledge and I can help to the people as well.
    After I would like to have a baby and to feel my family in safe, because I can pay my-maybe my own-house, I can make them happy and to be aware we can live together in happiness and in health.

  434. Kate Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:15 pm

    Not having a job sucks.
    But there are lots of things that I’ve realised I can do to gain new skills whilst searching for work – volunteer, help out friends/family, take up a new hobby. It’s surprising what new skills I’ve been able to learn – if only to show me that I am capable of learning something that I thought I wasn’t good at – I’ve CAN draw after all!
    2013 has been a terrible year for me & some of my close friends, but I’m heading into 2014 with renewed optimism and hope that things will improve.

  435. Jane Heeks Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:15 pm

    I would love the government to help the long termed unemployed to get the help they need to be employable.
    I would also like to get a new customer service job for myself to help with the everyday living expenses.
    I would also like to be able to give support back to those who need it.

  436. Paolo Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:15 pm

    I would like to get up in the morning, having my hair cut at Toni & Guy before getting my new smart suit at Debenhams.
    On my way to day’s career coaching with Job Academy, I would read a selection of careers advice books and check my emails on my brand new iPad Air.
    After the Fuller CV makeover, I would start sending my new CV (trough TotalJobs) using my new Acer Aspire V5 laptop.

    Finally I will invite you all at Marks and Spencer for free drinks!
    Peace and love to everybody in 2014 :)

  437. sarah summers Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:15 pm

    easy due to discrimination off a former employer then being made redundant off another it leaves me looking for another career, the jobcentere are a waste of time in providing any help and employers just only care about past experience not on what transferable skills i have, the work programme i have been placed on is not helping, started trying self employment but the jobcentre seem more bothered about deducting any income i make, its not like I`m not trying but just getting nowhere i just want to work

  438. iyke Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:16 pm

    I want to get into a better career that will enable me do things I couldn’t do at present. A job I will have passion doing, it’s not all about what I will benefit from employer but how my skills would benefit my employer and make an impact to the company I would be working for.

    • Yasir Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:19 pm

      I will pray that 2014 bring happiness to all you also me giving jobs are those which are still jobless like me giving girl friends are those guys which are still searching for girls and generate mercy on our leader’s heartr they think about us we are also human also we had little wishes

  439. Mohammed Iqbl Patel Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:16 pm

    I would like to see the world as a place of peace for the many who are suffering across the globe. Yes we may see ourselves as less fortunate due to the difficult times that we see here in our country. But look at the places around the globe and realize we are far better than the many who don’t have what we have. So I say Thank God and cherish what we have and be patient for indeed we are not unfortunate but rather very fortunate to have what we have.

  440. Natasha Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:16 pm

    I am imagining myself sitting by the ocean, drinking out of a coconut with a blue paper umbrella sticking out of it. I am listening to the waves of the ocean crashing on the beach. My toes are sinking into the warm, soft sand. I have a beautiful man sitting beside me – he is smiling at me. I am staring at the bright blue sky and the hot sun is beating down on my blonde hair. Everything is fine back at home. I am holiday from my fantastic new career that presented itself to me. Life is wonderful. It is a glorious 2014! (A girl can dream!)

  441. paul williams Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:17 pm

    after working for over 25 years,having 3 children,a mortage,etc,to provide for.i would like 2014 to not have the thought of claiming benifits to help me provide for the things i need……

  442. OJanneh Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:17 pm

    I would like to be debt free by ending of 2013 to 2014. I know a well paying job in the six figure range will help towards reaching my goal, but anything in-between will be a great help. Winning a CV makeover, career coaching, the laptop, the Ipad, the Cash, and the whole SHEBANG! Will definitely be a good start to 2014. Good Luck to me, and to the rest, better luck next time and happy holidays. God bless.

  443. Pavels Lasmanis Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:17 pm

    I want to learn english language to speak fluently, and find a job in office with friendly team. I dream to become a graphic designer! I really like to make some creative art in photoshop and if I get paid for it, it will be a Christmas miracle.

  444. Hugo Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:18 pm

    I wish for everyone to be given a fair chance when applying for a job based on their skills and expertise. Don’t think about luxuries, the joy you get from working in what you really want to work and have studied to do is priceless.

  445. Lina Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:18 pm

    It is sad to sit and read all those comments on here as all those people want is a job which will make their lives slightly better. I want the same. Good things come to those who wait(really wait), I guess… Best of luck everyone!

  446. Martha Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:18 pm

    Finally I wanna change my life, because this year was the worst in my life – I lost job, friends and I stayed with mother care. If I win, I could show everyone that I’m still strong and my interpersonal skills are higher than other normal people. I had a lot of dreams, ambitions but I left this. Now I have only depression that I cant do what I wanted. I lost my life, help me. I want to win with myself.

  447. Diana Gavazzo Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:18 pm

    What would I like to see happen in 2014?
    Good question… but I’m changing it to “What I’m going to see happen in 2014?”
    In 2014 I’m going to give myself a chance to do the thing I love most, and by doing so I’m going to hopefully inspire other people to do the same. I believe the world needs more people to go out and do what they do best and love the most.
    2014 will be the next year I cross a few more things from my bucket list. :)
    I want to help make other people’s dreams come true in 2014 too. I’m going to stay true to myself and do my utmost best to always be fair, determined, just and a good human being. Good things come to those who believe (and wait yes, so if I don’t win the computer I’ll have to go buy one!!). Anyway, I’m going to make sure 2014 will be my best year so far.

  448. James Gordon Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:19 pm

    I’d like managment to actually manage and communicate better.
    I’d also like a fair weeks wage for a fair days work! ;-)
    I’d also like your site to allow me to register my comments without it thinking that the other 1000 people registering a comment is me!
    I’d also like to tell me mum that I was sexually abused in the Navy but it would probably kill her. :-(

  449. Alix Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:19 pm

    I would like the opportunity for a career change. I know I have so much more to deliver, I just need the right employer who will let me prove myself. I would love to finally have full time work, with regular hours and my weekends back. It would mean I would no longer have to worry about getting enough overtime to make ends meet, and also give me a chance to start saving up for bigger, better things. And finally learn how to drive! 2013 has been okay career wise, I know there are those worse off out there, but I would love the chance to finally get out there and show my potential and for people to recognise the experience I already have. 2014 is going to be my year, because I will make it so!

  450. Ahmed Ahmed Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:20 pm

    I just really want a job that when I wake up in the morning i’m excited to go to work because I am fully committed to it, whereas if I got a job where I felt like Godzilla every morning I wouldn’t be as motivated or even passionate. what i want for 2014 that I never had in 2013 is a job where I can be me and not somebody that is wearing mask and takes it off as soon as work is over.

  451. Andrew Ogunmola Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:20 pm

    The year 2013 has been a year of challenges and its about to end. 2014 shall be my year of new things, new job, new opportunities, the year which i will reunite with my family and to have the chance of a new beginning for me and my family. I would like to further my education to have a better job opportunity.These are my wishes for 2014.

  452. James W Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:20 pm

    I would like to get a job to help me finance an MRes programme in Cancer Sciences starting in September.

  453. Nicola Rutherford Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:20 pm

    I would love a stress free year, earn enough money to live on, without running out before the end of the month. I would like my family and I to live a happy and fulfilling life without money worries.

  454. Barry Wright Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:21 pm

    It’s really very simple for me to gain employment in the Industry that I have spent 40 years in and for all the recruitment agencies to be honest and tell the truth as to why they always have candidates with more experience and are a better match to their clients requirements than I have (40 years really counts for nothing if you are over 55 years young What a laugh
    I have one wish for 2014 to get that job and feel useful again “Any chances any one”

  455. Helen Morgan Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:21 pm

    As we spend a third of our day at work, I would like to find a position that will make me happy, give me longevity and security for the future as I have been made redundant 3 times after providing 10 years of loyal service twice so would appreciate someone giving me back some of the loyalty and hard work I put into my work daily. Maybe this complete makeover would provide me with the change of luck I so desperately need! Trying to stay positive is very hard when you go for interviews and are told you are too experienced for roles. I also wish everyone seeking employment could find what they need to make their lives better as it takes more muscles to frown than to smile!:-)

  456. richard ellis Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:22 pm

    that peace is restored in the Middle east and Africa, that the poor refugees find relief and are able to return to their homes and families

  457. Marius Gervinauskas Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:22 pm

    I just want to be happy and have my favorite job. Find wife and start making children ;)

  458. Barry Bennett Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:22 pm

    all I need is someone to get back to me from all the 100 jobs I have applied for, just cant see the end of it, so please bring me some luck 2014

  459. Justyna Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:22 pm

    Dear New Year 2014 please bring me a ”something”
    what most I desire.
    The ”something” need not be at all visible nor tangible, maybe even not smell, but let it be ”something” without I can not live …. JOB

  460. Ian MacFarlane Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:23 pm

    I would like the government to realise that (in general) employers are discriminating against “older” people looking for a “career” as oppose to a “job”. How’s that going to pan out when people can’t retire at 65-66-67-68-101?

    I would like companies to realise that at 55 years old/ people still have drive, ambition and that ever valuable experience and at least 10 years working life in front of them.

    As someone who has been looking for work for 12 months and who stayed with the same company for over 38 years (starting on the shop floor and finishing as a senior manager) it’s very very FRUSTRATING.

    Seasons greeting to all and may those of you looking for work be successful in 2014

  461. Patrick Green Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:23 pm

    Recreation of vision to develop my passion and focus for the future.

    The upcoming year 2014 should be a better year than 2013 for me or I’ll be the fool of the year gone. The wide implications of procrastination are germinating and the harvest is a deluge of weeds and dark, murky and unappealing waters.

    To fail to plan is to plan to fail. Failure to plan, to prepare,to be creative and be proactive therefore, is a plan on it’s own. I have decide to deviate from the norm and embrace the future with confidence. Taking ownership of my own development.

    This is so becoming to look like another new year resolution, flowing with the tide? I have decided to walk the tough road, to be persistently hard working and innovative in order to have within my grasp my evolved personality in an eureka.

    David Cameron and the network of politicians, law and policy makers impacting my life and riding me hard? The economy that nosedived and is slowly crawling back up in an epileptic forum of spin doctors. These and more are stakeholders in the case scenario. Their objective my hope. What if they fail?

    The suffering masses are making do with crumbs. This competition although a nice gesture by Total jobs is not enough for the multitude of unemployed to share in the Christmas bonanza. Your system will momentarily crash and will not be able to cope with the number of responses.

    There seem to be no light behind the dark clouds. The mien of the people is lost in the cluttered applications for jobs sitting in the various bins across the different councils.

    A generation lost? The whole picture is unfathomable in the light of the chaos, in the light of the dilemma of our generation.

    The solution lies within the person. I have decided therefore, to recreate a vision, to develop my passion and focus for the future.

    My help start with me. All things being equal the offal of the offerings of the government might make a healthy buffet at the turn of the new year.

  462. Geoff Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:23 pm

    I want to give up the rat race and retire as I turn 60 in the spring.

  463. Marlon Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:24 pm

    Hi everyone, finding a good and stable job is my greatest target next year. So If I can have the opportunity to be hired sooner, I can continue my project to our very own mother earth be save through environmental and friendly power generation. Hoping this will be happen next year.

  464. Angela Lopes Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:24 pm

    I have a dream!
    I would like that in 2014 someone (maybe me, in my new job in London city) will invent the teletransportation! :)

  465. Badu Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:24 pm

    Hopefully get a job or an interview (feels like getting a degree was a waste of time ).
    And hopefully the economy starts to pick up slightly so people can get in to work again.
    Japan next summer anyone?

  466. Rob Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:24 pm

    I would ideally like to be in the position to retrain for a change in direction and to land in a job that I am truly happy with , that would be a dream come true for 2014 .

  467. Tauffal Ahmed Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:25 pm

    I want to prove that like all of us we can all succeed and make something of ourselves no matter what happens 2014 I will find work and will do my best to build a future for myself and my family a future long term career ain’t just a dream it will be a reality.
    I would like to see more in job training with employers giving people a chance to build to their strengths investment in people is the most important aspect in a successful business.

    Good luck to everyone for 2014 don’t just be a statistic be what you want to be.

  468. John Davies Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:25 pm

    What I would like to see happen in the new year 2014 !!

    The British government would bring into place an act that would stop all politicians lying and spouting spin when asked a direct question to divert the truth from their parties or themselves.

    Aliens to land on earth and help clean up this planet after the mess previous governments and countries have made of the environment and to establish world peace and bring about plentiful food, water and clean energy for every country and to eliminate greed.

    But most of all I would like a job where I am appreciated, paid well for my hard work so I can be secure in my employment until I retire.

    Merry Christmas to all lets hope 2014 is a good one for everyone :-)

    John Davies.

  469. Lorenzo Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:25 pm

    Mm it’s not easy about what I want for 2014, but a job I enjoy doing, no money is not important, it’s important you are happy with what you do, more happy you are, more you will achieve in your future , happiness comes from the inside ( not from the outside ) …. Remember it’s all up to you, what you achieve, where you go, what you will be, is dosen’t deepened on John, Michel or lucky who are around you, all is just up to you…how you present yourself in a interview, what job you will take to pay your bills, etc. ( yes I am unemployed , over 40, not married, no family in short I have nothing, but I know if I really want it I will get everything in 2014 ) and I always keep this in my minde “I am not 40, I am 18 with 22 years of expiriance ” :)

  470. sharon ann still Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:26 pm

    I simply wish job hunting was not age discriminate so that people with a longer career history are not feared as being over powering or over talented to the younger interviewer..
    I am very age proud and career history proud .. still hunting ….

  471. Daniel Hawkins Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:26 pm

    I would like to get a job that gives me the opportunity to use and improve on the skills that i have learned. Gaining experience that enables me to carve out a career in the Graphic Design Industry!

  472. Annette Summers Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:26 pm

    Itwould be great if I won the lottery, got my ideal job with a good wage lol. Make some new friends and make mine and my familys’ life a bit better and brighter :-)

  473. mogumogu Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:27 pm

    I would like not to see happen in 2014
    Losing home
    Losing job
    Losing family
    Losing friends
    Losing my confidence
    Which all happened in 2013
    The only thing I would not mind was
    Losing my weight!

    • Shaun Dean Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 6:33 pm

      I would like to see the job centre empty

  474. Charlotte Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:27 pm

    I would really benefit from this equipment In order to help my freelance graphic design career or just to be able to work from home whilst also taking care of my grandparents. This competition is too good to be true and I would really make the most of the prizes in so many ways I couldn’t even start to list them. Needless to say it would be life changing at this point for me.

  475. Darren Summersby Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:27 pm

    I would like a new job and earn good money to be able to buy stuff like this so I don’t have to enter competitions to win this stuff.

  476. william bowen Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:28 pm

    2013 has been a tough year I hope in 2014 that as a family we can get back to some normality starting with my wifes tumour going and never coming back and a career / job offer that sees the potential in a 44 year old – surely someone will take a chance on me.

  477. Anna Pearman Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:28 pm

    I would like to be given the opportunity to learn and train within a position to enable me to make a much needed career change.

  478. Brendan Walsh Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:28 pm

    I would like to see Great Britain stop gifting money abroad and instead use that money to create more jobs in this country, once this is achieved and Great Britain has a healthy economy and is out of debt, then help other countries.

  479. Tony Puckey Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:29 pm

    To retain a degree of idealism, without hiding too much of it behind a carapace of scepticism.
    That;and to continue playing handball with my kids in the lounge without breaking anything…..further.
    Ultimately though,to find a job after taking this leap of faith!

  480. Albert Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:29 pm

    I want peace, jobs and FAIR chances for everybody, and a Business career for me! Also, why dont you split the prize in 10 people instead of all just for one?¿

  481. Jeremy Jones Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:30 pm

    It’s simple to me and came to me straight away. After the tragic news of the legendary Nelson Mandela, I was distraught. This came at an extremely surprising time since I am about to go to Malawi to volunteer for 3 months. I had further thoughts and realised that the best thing that could ever happen in 2014 is for the whole World to finally take in and use Mandela’s lessons to get the best out of the World. It all starts in Africa, helping Africa show their true colours by the whole continent supporting each other in achieving a branch-like structure to help each other come out of poverty, eradicate HIV/AIDS, build a sustainable living and become a first-world continent as a whole. In a nut-shell, as you see the United States of America and the European Union; why can there not be a United Africa?!

  482. Nina Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:30 pm

    What I would like to see in 2014:

    After seeing 2 close friends suffer from and be taken away by cancer in the past year, I am determined to look for silver linings – 50 is but the youth of age!

    Hearing “You’re Hired” would keep me Inspired!

  483. Helen Morgan Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:30 pm

    I dont want a lot for Christmas, there is just one thing i need, i dont care about the presents, underneath the Christmas tree, i just want you for my own, more than you could ever know, make my wish come truuuuuuuuue, all I want for Christmas is a job with uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu! :-)
    Joking aside, it would make my year!!!!!

  484. Nasrin Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:31 pm

    2014 would be much better year for me than 2013 if I could see my parents who live abroad (as I have not seen them for last 2 years) and I wish to start my BPTC, unfortunately, I wont be able to start it if I cant secure a permanent job to pay for course fee. So, I have two wishes for 2014, If I could see my parents and get a Job to complete my BPTC and make a career progression.

  485. K H Cheung Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:31 pm

    Focus!Focus and Focus! I want 2014 to be a productive year!
    I wanna work harder, as so play harder and enjoy time with my family.
    I also wanna upgrade myself, and learn more new things. I want to be a social media freak!

    P.S.: With Good Health for everyone of course!

  486. Rajiv Patel Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:31 pm

    Have been applying for around 10 jobs a day in anticipation of getting back into work. Having lost my home and my family, it would nice to get a job, visit my two boys (different parts of the country) and have a place of my own again, as I currently have no fixed abode. I know that if I do get a job, I will no longer be stressed, depressed and anxious all the time. The additional thought of having some quality family time would be so beneficial to me and my children. I am prepared to work hard and improve my situation at any cost. All the best, merry christmas and a very happy new year.

  487. Florin Toma Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:31 pm

    I would love 2014 to be the year when totaljobs will help me find the job of my life.

  488. david crouch Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:32 pm

    All i want for 2014 is to find a job that i can really get me teeth into, something where i feel that i am making a difference and helping build a better future for the company i work for…..
    Also a nice secure environment were i can let my creative juices flow….

  489. Katrina Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:32 pm

    I’ve been made redundant 3 times in less than 2 years, not because of a lack if skills & experience but because of restructures & the new demands on companies. I have learnt so much during this time, and as a result my work ethics are stronger because of it. The redundancies make me look like a liability on paper, not the victim of bad luck & circumstance. I just want the recognition & financials I deserve.

  490. M. Ali Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:32 pm

    As an Artist , will wipe all 2013 dark marks ,, draw white thoughts, green, orange optimistic ideas and red energy to start my new job.
    Will illustrate good feelings all the way to the interview, will draw blue sky on bus and underground, will mix colours all the way through.
    Will frame all that along with my little daughter picture and put them on my work desk on my first day of work, sit and think ( That was my best artwork)..

    For 2014 I would like to find a new job position in a diferent country than mine for having the oportunity of working in other culture and with other people. I would like losts of people could work in my country and the unemployers will be decrease. And my last wish for 2014 would be that every old people in the Earth could have a good home, good care and good food in their last years in this world.

    Merry Christmas for everybody and the hopeness in a better world is the force for continuing with the fight and weaking up every day.

  496. Stephen Percival Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:35 pm

    I want employers to choose potential employees without reference gender, race, sexual orientation and, especially in my case, age.

  497. Tim Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:35 pm

    I would like to see people plan for the future and not just today. I would like to see people at the top held responsible when things go wrong. I would like to see people care about the whole and not just the parts. I would like to know I live in a world worth living in.

  498. GL Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:35 pm

    I’d like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony

    I’d like to see the world for once all standing hand in hand
    And hear the echo through the hills for peace throughout the land

  499. Louise Brown Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:36 pm

    Things a new job in 2014 will get me: A new home, a sense of self worth, an electric toothbrush, nights out with friends, a gym membership, a chance to start saving and start planning a family, be able to afford to get my name changed back to maiden since my divorce, marry my new boyfriend and enough money to fund my love of gothic fashion :)
    Too many job seekers and just not enough jobs… Hopefully things will get better in the future. All the best to everyone who entered, and to everyone looking for work like myself.

  500. debbie ford Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:36 pm

  504. Jo Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:37 pm

    As 2014 begins I will loose a job I love due to ill health under the heading incapability.However I am more than capable to work from home.With the prospect of being unemployed,I decided the only way to earn a living with the flexibility my illness requires,was to set up in business for myself.I spend all my time working online so the obvious course for me was to become a social media manager.I have built my website,completed a massive amount of training,drawn up my marketing plan and spent what little money I had in the process.I have many skills that need to be well presented to show that I really am as amazing as my CV says.When I launch my new career in early 2014 I would like to meet prospective clients wearing something other than my pink bobbled onsie with the hood. The hood will be essential to hide my grey roots and unstyled hair.I would like to do demonstrations and impress them with my online skills, my notepad and pen are very basic.I just hope they dont need advice on using an ipad,as iv never had the pleasure of learning to use one myself.My weakness is selling myself on a one to one/ face to face basis even though I totally believe in myself and my ability to deliver.Bring it on 2014.

  505. GL Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:38 pm

    2014 would be a great year for me if I got back into work as, I’d be able to give my daughter the 21st birthday party she deserves but never had as I was out of work.

  507. fortune Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:38 pm

    Better wage, better living, better lifestyle equal’s better job from Total that would make a difference in 2014 for me

  509. Lisa Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:39 pm

    Simple. To move out of my parents house like the guy of the Lloyds bank advert, get an environmental consultant job after I finish my masters related to Environmental Impact Assessment and be able to afford a new dress without the concern of money worries. Financially, its been difficult this year with having to commute to and from my uni (Manchester)from my savings and working long hours at a retail shop at £6.31. Overall, to see the light at the end of the tunnel and have my determination pay off. Thanks.

  510. Anthony Williams Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:39 pm

    All I want for Christmas is Anthony Williams brain and to win something, just once in my life. The rest I’ll manage. Thank you and MERRY CHRISTMAS!

  511. Andrew Bell Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:40 pm

    Simply, I would like to wish everyone registered with Totaljobs a very, merry Christmas and hopefully a fantastic new ‘working’ year. I’ve just written this ditty to the tune of 12 days of Christmas as a wish list I would like to see happening in 2014 for my fellow jobseekers and me, and it’s quite appropriate as it’s the 13th Dec today.

    With 12 days ’til Christmas I’d truly love to see:
    Twelve Plumbers’ Plumbing
    Eleven Typists’ Typing
    Ten Bills all Paying
    Nine Ladies Nursing
    Eight Farmers Milking
    Seven Seamstress’ Sewing
    Six Tilers’ Laying
    Five Golden Rings (from Employers)
    Four Call Centre Leads
    Three Fresh Starts
    Two Total Jobs
    and a Part-time Role for Charity

  512. Graham Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:40 pm

    Hello.
    I would like to see a new car in my drive as the one I have right now is so weak and slow that it wouldn’t pull a greasy stick out of a dogs bum :-)
    Well you asked :-)

  513. Alessandro Guidi Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:40 pm

    For my daughter Luna… She still Believe in Santa Claus!!!

  514. Murray Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:41 pm

    In the new year I will become a dad for the first time (end of may). This alone will make my year amazing. All I want is for mum and baby to be healthy and happy.

    A lot of uncertainty still looms as I am still looking for work. I am studying towards an accountancy qualification from home that will hopefully give me some more work opportunities. Finding work has been difficult, I have applied for lots of jobs just have not been lucky yet. I hope to find something soon so we can properly plan our future and provide a good home for our new family. I want to leave the uncertainty in 2013!

    Positive thinking and fingers and toes crossed all will be well. Here’s another person hoping the new year 2014 will be their year, ha ;)

  515. dawn Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:41 pm

    I would like to see better paid jobs available and I would like a Job with good pay.A better laptop would also be nice.

  516. Grant Lucas Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:41 pm

    I’d like to move up in my career so that I’d be able to look after my elderly mother and maybe be able to get us a little place of our own.

  517. Chris Smith Mr Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:42 pm

    I am fortunate enough to thoroughly enjoy my current position,employer and workplace. I am employed on a weekly contract via an employement agency. My wish for 2014 would be to follow through to the next stage of employment as a direct employee enabling me to feel the contentment and security of being employed direct.

  518. Tracey Callaghan-Hayes Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:42 pm

    Hi

    I dont want to talk about the good or bad things in life like everyone else. Its all part of life and there is nothing new about that. I just want to win the prize as it will help and might even boost my job search chances.

    P.S. Since your surname is HAyes and I live in Hayes, do I have a better chance to be selected ? :)

    Yours Sincerely
    Sabah

    I’d like Positive Money’s quest to be realized, where banks can no longer issue money; I’d like all politicians, regardless of party, to live on their country’s minimum wage for 6 months; I’d like parents to educate their children and teachers to teach and stop trying to educate; I’d like everyone to forget about political correctness; I’d like massive respect for the environment; I’d like everyone to constantly remember what it’s like to be in the next guy’s shoes; I’d like all unwanted domestic animals to be sterilized; I’d like my workplace to thrive and prosper; I’d like to live much nearer to the people I love; I’d like my husband to stop snoring and my children to find what they’re striving for. I’d like to be mysterious and serene as well as long and slim. Happy New Year, World!

    To have a happy 2014, with my little family and an excellent job – which will also help with our financial needs!

  521. Mark N Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:43 pm

    My career was in a groove,
    a rut, for many a year.
    “Perhaps I ought to move
    but it’s easy to stay here”

    Then I had a visit
    from a manager on high:
    “Your time here’s at its limit…
    it’s time to say goodbye!”

    So a new post I must find
    now that I am out and free,
    shake the cobwebs from my mind
    and dust off my CV.

    In two thousand and fourteen
    I must search and see
    if all that I have learnt and been
    will open golden doors for me…”

    For 2014 I would like to see gainful employment and success for all who strive to better themselves, happiness in abundance and a transition from our current position of stagnation into a world where the growth and development of humanity is not intrinsically linked to the exploitation of finite resources.

    Not too much to ask is it?

  523. Doug Banks Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:44 pm

    Totaljobs have the power to transform lives. For people to realise their dreams, their potential, their ideal job. Success is born out of taking opportunity. Totaljobs present those potential life changing opportunities. 2014 could be the year for so many! Keep up the good work TJ! :-)

  524. anthony Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:44 pm

    Never be sad never be blue totaljobs will find a job for you happy xmas all

  525. Matthew Iorns Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:44 pm

    Into my inbox I wander
    As usual no offers to ponder
    One caught the eye
    Lets not be shy
    This chance I shall not squander

    Yes,thirteen, somewhat static
    Fourteen, hopefully dramatic
    Hope for a chance
    My life will enhance
    As my rhyming is pretty erratic

    So here to change, I toast
    Next year a job to boast
    Some get up and go
    Put on a show
    Prove last year is only a ghost

    So next year I may succeed
    I know its not guaranteed
    But with lots of ambition
    To achieve in my mission
    I might be wearing some tweed!

    • Lucyna Aleksandrowicz Tuesday, 7 Jan, 2014 at 1:03 pm

      love it :)

  526. Julia Charnock Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:45 pm

    After over two and a half years of unemployment, I would like to get a job. Seems that twenty years of experience and two degrees doesn’t even get you in for an interview these days…

  527. Matthew Kirk Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:45 pm

    I put everything into making my dream career work, even taking an apprenticeship on at the same time as a degree and moving abroad only to find that the market simply is not there. I would like an employer to see my enthusiasm to learn and apply myself in a new career.

  528. Mimi Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:45 pm

    What I would like to see happen in 2014 – people being less stressed and more smiley, less gossips and more words of love, less time spent at work and more time with family and friends, I wish people didn’t have to run after money so much so they can enjoy their time with loved ones instead! And as for me I wish I could be with my mum & sis more often; I love them but bad economy in my country doesn’t allow me to stay and live there with them.

  529. Steffen Schiller Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:46 pm

    I would like to see my career moving into a more satisfying and interesting direction – that means a new position and maybe even a career change. I want to find the pleasure in my work again!

  530. Steve Emms Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:46 pm

    2013… Not a good year, broke my ankle at work in January & cant pass my ENG1 (seafarers medical)Plates & pins in ankle now for life but I am able to work & have been job searching for 6 months but as yet nothing, Have stopped smoking & drinking but still dont have enough money for kids christmas gifts. Just hope new year will bring new financial future for my family & make me feel less of a failure as a parent & provider. fingers crossed, merry xmas & happy new year to all.

  531. jonny sunderland Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:46 pm

    well had a really hard year this year are little boy had to have major heart surgery.so i had to leave my employment to care for him. He is still recovering and i am now able to look for work again you prize package would be perfect to help me look for work in the future

  532. NIt Nat Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:47 pm

    I would like to see people speak their mind about how they view other people based on their race, religion, sexuality, culture, creed etc and not be biased to agree with the majority opinion of this world. Because hey its going to be 2014

  533. mohammed nafri Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:47 pm

    really, i would like to find jobs via total jobs.com in up coming year in 2014. this is one of the most valuable opportunity to find jobs.

  534. Nana Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:47 pm

    In 2014 I would like to see a lot of stuff happened, but the most important is a to find a job that I actually would enjoy. I mean everybody knows how is it usually in an english office, but a bit of humor and creativity would harm nobody. I personally, I am a creative person and highly adaptable what gives me the opportunity to choose from more than one environment where to work, but again if you don’t have already 5 years experience nobody want’s employ you. So basically you supposed to be born already with some work experience right, because it doesn’t really matter whether you’re a graduate or not, until you don’t have the required experience don’t make yourself hopes. So that means when you have no chance to get experience because of that, that you don’t have any experience yet, you won’t have any…… So now what’s the solution, anybody knows?

  535. John Bosch Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:47 pm

    I would like that ALL jobless people get a decent job and a decent life for 2014 ! As far as for me, I already have a Life with no health problems, I would like to work for a Company that doesn’t consider a number, or work for myself and be able to pay all my bills at the end of the month and have some saved as well. Maybe I need a coach ! Merry Xmas and Happy New Year 2014 to ALL !

  536. Alexander McCreadie Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:48 pm

    I am a 20 year old guy living in Hertfordshire.
    My mum immigrated to Spain 2 years ago when I just turned 18. She left with her husband and left me in the UK on my own.
    I had a job in retail in London and at first I was doing ok.
    Soon after my mum left, I realised I was living with a physco drug addict and turned a blind eye to it but when his friend assaulted me whilst fueled on drugs I realised I had to get out of there.
    I then decided to move to London because it would be cheaper and easier for my job!
    I was living on about £950 a month which is not a lot after rent was paid.
    I very quickly became depressed and started a course of anti depressants.
    I lost my job as I could not longer cope anymore with the stress that life had thrown at me.
    I was living in a small box room on my own away from all my friends in a rough part of London.
    I then had no money to pay for rent and because I had to leave my shared house I also lost my deposit. I was taken in by various organisations like shelter housing and the YMCA.
    Now that I have dealt with my issues and sorted my life out,
    I’m now looking for a job in reception or admin as I love working with people.
    This isn’t a sob story or a cry for help. It is a statement to say that I have been through a lot as a young person and during this time, whilst I’m looking for work, it would be really nice to have a little Christmas treat to help me.
    I hope that anyone who reads this can feel inspired that no matter what happens in life, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger! If you want something, you have to go out into the world and get it. Stay strong and positive and always hope for the best!

  537. arinze Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:48 pm

    My goal for 2014

    First I want to take a moment to acknowledge 2013 as the best year of my life so far; because it was the year that I took hold of my mind and put it on a direct path towards success. Having struggled several years before, it occurred to me that nothing was going to change for me unless I took hold of my mindset and changed it towards the mindset of a successful person. That was my goal this year and suffices to say I have been blessed with the capacity to realize my dream and I am grateful for the support and opportunities that have lead to this massive leap.
    For 2014, I envision a year where my primary focus would be to take active steps towards developing the connections that will fuel long term prosperity. It will constitute a network of influential figures with valuable experience, skills and attitudes that will contribute positively towards my career. These individuals will be successful in their respective careers with knowledge and experience that I can take full advantage of. I will go the extra mile to provide them with service the extent of which I currently possess and in that process I will develop myself with their advice and support in the faith that their influence will yield a positive effect on me.
    I have decided that external circumstances will not determine the outcome of 2014; they will merely provide me with opportunities to adapt and grow as an individual. No matter what the environment is, I will be resourceful to find a way such that I and those involved profit (in a lawful capacity if I might add).
    I will conclude by expressing my gratitude to Total jobs for setting up this competition. It has allowed me an opportunity to reflect on the gains I have had this year and inspire me to express the direction of my future. Win or lose, you can hold me accountable to realize this dream, and I will be happy to return to give a testimony on your website and hopefully inspire others with my journey.

    Thank you

  538. peter daniel Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:49 pm

    Although I have semi-retired I should like to give back the experience that I have gained for the benefit of others. I hope 2014 will enable me to continue helping others whilst I know I can still learn many new things.

  539. dawn Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:49 pm

    I want to see better paid job’s and one of them for me. and a better laptop.

  540. Dave Vivyan Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:49 pm

    So a guy with a certified IQ of 130 and many, many years in a shift Analyst Support role is of no use to any employer then?

  541. Robert Smith Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:49 pm

    World Peace, no more hunger but failing that a job for me.

  542. Elliott Dixon Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:50 pm

    I hope to find a job to help fund my university education next year!

  543. Asproniu Constantin Cristian Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:50 pm

    For the year 2014 I want my business to improve and to make the right partnerships with the right people.Financial development is very important for a person because it allows us to buy the things we need and the things we desire for us and also for our beloved ones. To gain financial independence should be a major goal for everybody and even though there are many more other things which are a lot more important than money like, family, peace of mind, we ca not live a good life without them.
    So basically for the 2014 I want that everybody to improve theirs financial status by developing new business, gaining better jobs, making better investments, so we can afford the life we want and to help the people we love.

  544. Nicholas Beet Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:51 pm

    (From the Ashes) having been made redundant at the start of 2013,with lots of help, training and skill, I have launched my own first aid training company and hope that in 2014 (and beyond) I can make it grow.

  545. Paul Milam Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:51 pm

    In 2013 I was made redundant, lost my job and my home, struggled to find anyone willing to give me the time of day let alone an interview me and employ me.

    So in 2014 I would like a new job that pays the bills and I find for filling and worth while, a new home that i can call my own and share it with my partner.

    I just want to be happy, homed and a satisfying job, too much to ask?

  546. Nige Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:51 pm

I would like world peace and people to help one enough and be a lot more supportive towards family friends and strangers have a great Xmaz and good New Year. Would like to find a job so much it is very hard and wish everyone the very best in the hunt.

  550. Peter Metcalfe Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:52 pm

    My big ambition is to be a world class cricketer. Next to that would be to have my own cricket coaching business. But the ultimate at this moment in time is to get a job, any job. My parents have supported me and bank rolled me for many years and it’s time I repaid some of that back. My grandfather died back in June and it’s been a very upsetting time. I want to get a job that he would be proud of me having. I’ve done some silly things in my short life but now I want prove to all my critics that I have changed for the better.

  551. Twinkle Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:53 pm

    I have more to offer than a simple CV, so please surprise me!

  553. Mark Watson Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:53 pm

    After 27 years of working I now find myself in the same position as millions of others. So, what do I want now?

    Do I want to be paid a ridiculously high salary with all of the benefits that I could ever want?
    Do I want to be the big boss and have lots of people running around at my beck and call?

    No – I want an employer who will simply give me a fair salary for a fair days work done and appreciate what I do. I want someone who understands when help and support is needed and looks to bring the best out of people. An enjoyable atmosphere, nice people, praise when it’s due. These to me are the important things that keep getting me out of bed in the morning.

    2014 has to be all about finding the right place for ME.

  554. joshua shaw Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:54 pm

    I would like to see the demise of computer software and more social interaction for the job search and trade environment.

  555. Clive Bygrave Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:54 pm

    First off all I would like to welcome the new year under the Eiffel Tower with the closest person to me. A fascinating new beginning 2014. By 2014, I see the work that makes me happy and gives satisfaction, which positively affects my whole family. I see myself and my family in the car while exploring the amazing Scottish castles. Year 2014 will be a year of happiness.

  557. Chito Prado Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:55 pm

    I wish, I can find a job that I want and employer that makes their employee happy. Because if the employee are happy they always give their 100%, and that’s make employer happy as we’ll.

  558. RASHFORD RICARDO Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:55 pm

    ST.MATTHEW22:39 And the second is like unto the First. THOU
    SHALT LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR AS THYSELF. I believe this is true. I am 78 years, a pensioner, have no need to peril myself to work now, BUT I AM SCROUGING THE PAGES FOR A JOB TO FINANCE A FRIEND WITH £4000.00 IN NIGERIA, who is held to rand some as she got sick and cannot work with a broken left leg. The people who she went there to work for was/is her employers, who spent on her fares and accommodation. They have her passport, and would not release it unless she pays them all the money they spent on her.
    Because of this reason, I must, (MUST) get a job, even though it is £5.00 per hout, or £16.00 per hour, as I am a shit house cleaner as well as a coded welder. However, in between those two, I have to consider my age and health, so I tread on safety net. Just before writing this, I have replied to vacancy that just came out, and I am sure, I will be considered. I tell all you readers who are reading this of the result, (as my God has never let me down from 2005 when He discovered me). I have 26 Miracles since 2005 to present, but if i get this job, I will not consider it to be 27, as it can go either way. Whoever is interested to know the result, check me out. This is my Neighbour I care about. Love(or better known as care.)for one another, and this wotld will be a Happier World for all to live in. Ras.

  559. Natalia Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:56 pm

    Definitely new laptop would give me better opportunities to find a perfect job. I would not have to beg my old one to work properly and don’t delete my e-mails and favourites websites when it has a bad working day. I could create the best CV and I hope to find this one carefully waited job which give me the high level of satisfaction and enough money to live without thinking how to get money to pay all the duties. I hope my family and dogs be in a good health, because having each other gives me the power to fight with adversity. 2014 has to be better – how long can I wait for the happiness and complacency? Definitely NO MORE!

  560. Twinkle Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:56 pm

    Basicly, to manipulate my phalanges acomplishing full purgation of The royal porcelain. OK, Ok… if the palace doesn’t need another dunny scrubber, then I gues I’ll settle with anything else until they do.

  563. David Casson Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:57 pm

    In 2014, I am going to need immense resources and help from Total Jobs to get the perfect job I need to move my family to Norfolk. We need to sell our house in Hertfordshire and move to Norfolk to be closer to elderly parents and other family and to give our kids a safer and fitter upbringing. Finding the most suitable role, that makes use of my abilities, close to our new home, arranging job interviews whilst moving to a new house will be a formidable task but I’m sure Total Jobs will be up to the task.

  564. Deso Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:57 pm

    I hope 2014 brings me a job with lots of money-making opportunities (and I’m not talking about becoming a forger!!!) and gives me both job satisfaction and security.

  565. graham seddon Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:58 pm

    I just would like a job

  566. Karen Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:58 pm

    2014 will see the start of my 3rd age – Done the full-blown career in my twenties/thirties, ran my own business while the family were growing up. Now I’m ready to use all my work experience and life experience to the full in a job that uses my brain and work ethic but without the need to worry about “career progression”. Looking forward to a fulfilling job for the next 15 years of my working life.

  567. Stephen Biggins Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 2:58 pm

  571. Rob Stanford Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:00 pm

    After an unintentionally long hiatus I just want to get back into a position where I can pay my way in the world at large. But more importantly, a job where coming to work is fun, as are the people I work with, and the final product for the customer is a joy to behold.

  572. Linda Costa Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:00 pm

    Dear total jobs,

    The New Year is only 18 days to start and I am 19 days to become a mother.

    I wish 2014 can bring new experiences, new adventures and most important peace in this crazy world where we live.

    Change is what we are all waiting for. Some will cut their hair, others will change their address or jobs. So, if jobs are the main point of 2014, getting a new job is also need a new pack of services, which will do our lives easier.

    Therefore,

    dear Total job, please don’t forget to leave something on my Christmas tree.

    With love

    Linda Costa

  573. Zahariev Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:00 pm

    Hello! I wish you all a Merry Christmas and good luck in the new 2014! Everyone to find work that seeks to be happy and satisfied! To become better and empathize with the problems of the people around us! Good Luck!

  574. Scott Cooper Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:01 pm

    I want to explore different job fields and find what best suits me, up for trying anything, long term career goal is to be permanently employed in a job I enjoy, I could also do with the CV Makeover… Probably my downfall.

  575. Alistair Barron Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:01 pm

    I have been out of work for quite some time now, earlier I was my wife,s main Carer for many years, until she passed away in 2010. I’m not in the least idle and I have been trying so hard to get employment with a dozen or so interviews this year alone, but it’s far from easy, who in their right mind would not like to work, it’s near nigh impossible to survive on job seekers allowance. I also have a three roomed house and have to pay extra for the two surplus bedrooms, no getting away from it, as you can imagine there’s not much left time you pay your bills and get your shopping. Having been unemployed for so long has left me all but withered and quite withdrawn, the thought of actually getting a job now and being successful fills me with utter dread, I have little or no confidence and my thoughts occasionally drift into depression and at times I just feel like ending the suffering.

  576. Mike O'Keeffe Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:02 pm

    I would like people to be able to get the jobs that make them happy rather than sticking with a job just because they can’t afford to change (taking a drop in pay, extra travel expenses, etc).
    Live to work, not work to live.

  577. Kim Thornton Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:02 pm

    Some happiness would be nice. To get back what we put in, respect and progression would be a good start. Improved pay but hey who am I kidding. To find my place in this world!

  578. Donata Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:02 pm

    All I want for Christmas, is a job that would allow me to make this world a better place for all.

  579. Elizabeth Glover Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:03 pm

    2014 would bring me a job that is both creative and hands on. I am 55, divorced now single, brought up 5 children all with University degrees and working. Started my career late landed an excellent high paid job as a Lecturer of IT/Multimedia after lots of qualifications and training. Lost job after 10 years because of a Gay Bully, started new career (limited contract)in 2008 and found I love helping solve other peoples problems, marketing and PR event planning with B2B contact. Then went on to create training materials for Network Rail only to be made redundant Christmas 2010. Thousands of job applications 3 interviews later – still no job. So stressed and depressed on ESA. Would start own business but no funding – want even just a well paid part-time job event planning or PR so I can start my own business and get a happier life. I also want the large house to sell in 2014 so I can downsize and money for holiday and to buy the children, their partners and grandchildren pressies. Please choose me x

  580. Emma Walk Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:03 pm

    I qualified as a solicitor in 2008 after over years of rigorous study and training. Unfortunately due to the recession I was not able to secure a position at my training firm. I have to date spent over 800 hours over 3 years (2010 to 2013) volunteering with various charities providing my legal services for free to do something for the greater good and keep my skills up to date. I have help many vulnerable clients get the advice they need. I also won a pregitious national legal award for my pro bono services last year which got me in the legal press. Despite all that hard work and effort I still haven’t managed to secure permanent work. I have had a few temp roles and undertaken a few non-legal internshisp but it’s been incredible hard. I have been, over this year, proactively trying to change careers and interviewing for different positions although I haven’t secured anything as of yet. Finding a new career path and securing a job that I love would make my 2014 the best year ever. As confucious once said ‘choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life.’ That’s what I am aiming for in 2014.

    I’m hoping to take the next step in a long-fought recovery and return to work from illness, by moving on from my current employer. I’m ready to leave the safe environment of the familiar and take on a new challenge elsewhere, keen to move onto the next stage in my career and put my illness behind me. The clothes vouchers would really be handy – I had to buy a whole new wardrobe when I returned to work due to weight-loss and my work clothes are in need of a refresh again. I’m also aiming to finish my part-time Masters to push forward my career again. Winning that laptop would certainly make the dissertation writing a lot less painful!

    Fingers crossed anyway. I’m hoping for a positive start to 2014!

  587. Richard Moore Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:06 pm

    2013 oh what a year,
    The employers promise so much,
    When they have you,they use you for what they can get,
    A number on the payroll,
    We’re better than that ,
    Why are they so shallow?
    We’re people with feelings,can they not see that?
    Treat us with respect,
    In return,
    We promise to do our best!

  588. Carol Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:06 pm

    Total Jobs is the easiest website in order to apply for jobs. They have made the process very user friendly.

  589. Borislav Nikolov Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:07 pm

    Nowadays it’s really hard to find a job after graduating. People have been studying all their life, being prepared to be employees. Also paying tons of money for university diplomas and can’t get the job that they want. It’s so frustrating when some employers desire +5 years experience (for example) for the most positions. So people had to start working before they even finish high school? No, I don’t think so. Nobody will hire under-age person.
    If someday I finally get a job and reach important role in a company. I would make as much as possible internship programs. I won’t choose only the best from the group. I will make all of them “The Best”, because no one is born with knowledge.

    I have just been laid off, from a 5 month Agency job, that took Me back to My Engineering roots. Having been Unemployed for the 3 years prior to that, I now have My Zest for working back! :-)
    I would really love to get a permanent position in 2014, so that I can give My Kid’s things that they really deserve, and I can start ‘living’ again.

    I have a very unusual story, quite long but necessary. Ever since I was 17 in 2006 ,I have dedicated my life to following my dream as a professional musician. We started our band ‘The Milkmen’ as a college project in Australia and since then I haven’t seen my life going any other way. We would play lots of gigs mostly unpaid and I would do various random jobs to keep my self going. I mainly worked for my dad’s entertainment company, I also did a bit of signwriting and shop fitting for a while. After battling many obstacles in our pursuit of succes we still find ourselves pushing on as the more we put intothe band, the harder it is to give up. In 2011 our drummer had to move back to France after using up all his Australian visas, in June last year we decided to make to the move back to England (we were born here) so our drummer could move here and we could pursue our music career. It has been so much harder for us over here, it’s like starting all over again. We are not getting the break we deserve and it is just getting harder. Four of us live in Portsmouth in a one bedroom flat literally suffering for our art, I have been working a day here and there for agencies. At the moment I have worked 3 days in the past month and I have been trying my best. There is no work for me, it seems like there is always some else with more experience. I have never focused on a back up career as my attitude towards my dream was ‘ if I have a back up plan then I’m not putting 100% into the band’ kind of foolish I know. But I have more passion than sense.

    I met a girl recently and she is amazing, it got me thinking ‘ how am I ever going to be able to have a normal life (wife and kids etc) if I don’t have a career or even a full time job.? I think it’s time to focus on a back up plan too, please consider me for this prize as it is exactly what I need right now, thanks

    2014 would bring me a job that is both creative and hands on. WHAT ARE EMPLOYERS LOOKING FOR – I am a raring to go 55 year old, divorced now single, brought up 5 children all with University degrees and working. Started my career late landed an excellent high paid job as a Lecturer of IT/Multimedia after lots of qualifications and training. Lost job after 10 years because of a nasty Bully (they took his side as he was gay), started new career (limited contract)in 2008 and found I love helping solve other peoples problems, marketing and PR event planning with B2B contact. Then went on to create training materials for Network Rail only to be made redundant Christmas 2010. Thousands of job applications 3 interviews later – still no job. So stressed and depressed on ESA. Would start own business but no funding – want even just a well paid part-time job event planning or PR so I can start my own business and get a happier life. I also want the large house to sell in 2014 so I can downsize and money for holiday and to buy the children, their partners and grandchildren pressies. Please choose me I need a confidence boost and a job x

    I want the USA to kick its economy in to gear and start growing at over 3%. I want China to stop picking on smaller countries, and start concentrating on its environment. China is ruining everything for its people: it needs to stop aiming for worlds largest economy because it won’t happen. China is too depended on exports and infrastructure investments. We shouldn’t worry about China too much it will mess up soon and its GDP growth rate will drop below 4%. Japan should free up its services industry and get its economy growing. Japan would double its Nominal GDP if it got its companies investing. Japanese companies are said to be sitting on 2.7 trillion dollars of cash; more than the USA. Also, the North Korean government should collapse and allow South Korea to take all its land back and help all the 20 million people who live in North Korea. The Philippines should get on with building more infrastructure, their corrupt government needs to wake up and get its population working and enjoying life. The Philippines should be growing at over 8% GDP but its government keeps being cautious and not grasping the brilliant opportunity it has right now: lots of readily available money and an abundant labour force. If all that happens, 2014 should be a good year for me. I am fine being poor, just as long as someone is happy.

    I would very much like to find a decent solid job in 2014 as I do t want to find myself sat on a park bench peering into a half empty bottle of white lightening, especially not in winter! Possibly wouldn’t be too bad in summer, anyway, I digress, a good job would mean the world to me as working is all I have ever done and being out of work means I struggle to go out and get rejected by women every weekend. Cheers

    “1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
    2. I wish I hadn’t worked so hard.
    3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.
    4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
    5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.”
    (Martino, J. Huffington Post, 2013)

    If i can have a job that permits me to achieve even one of these five things by the time i reach my final days, then i will be luckier than most.

    If i am part of this rat race,

    For this life is not one to waste.

    DEAR MR PRIME MINISTER TELL ME WHAT TO DO OUR COUNTRY’S GOT MORE PROBLEMS THEN ME AND YOU.
    im 25 years old and live in london i want a job as long as it pays the bills im good to go. i believe in good old traditions work hard play hard and apply this to our modern society.i have been to a lot of recruitment’s and passed the assessments but the funny thing is prior to start date i get told an excuse or a white lie sorry your application is denied,after the travel cost phone bill to registering your self example photo id pics my pockets feel kind of light and my mind all over the place,im not going to lie i have a criminal record nothing major and there is thousands of people in uk in the same situation and loose hope because someone somewhere don’t bother to do the evaluation right. There’s even times im telling employers, i dont want to mention any names i dont want to get in trouble where im saying im willing to work for free try me see how i do while there are recruiting big numbers of people all age backgrounds and im getting a polite rejection. Am not hateing on any body but lets see it from the rearview things i have seen are ridiculous in the country that we live and grew up in, i had a few ups and downs who has not i do have education and employment history but i feel like im in catch 22 situation if don’t declare my criminal record or i do declare my record cut me a break after all the education and work experience with a smile i have what employers look for do i really need all this to even get a example a cleaning job mop and hoover.The reality is this everything that is made is made and everything that is broken is broken and it will be like that the way our country is operating i don’t blame the department of work and pension they are providing a great service its on the individual how hard they try your job is your job by looking for a job till you find something and you should not give up like me. what we need is a fresh approach to everything and all the things that are happening in our economy society there are parents and single parents,students,migrant workers,low paid and high paid educated and uneducated skilled and unskilled national and international people, privet and government sectors we have a lot of gaps that are AWOL gone walkies etc… how can i give a advise to somebody when i dont have a job to begin with its a messed up situation for a common man sometimes i think nobody wants to work or do business with some one that is not on they level some times you have to fake it to make it in the rat race we created in our society and we have sectioned everyone to they allocated positions there is no promotion. people want to surround them self with people that look or act successful and not broke so they can say what made it successfull it must be doing good i want to be in business with that otherwise no one wants to do anything with you. Me personally im tired and sick for working here and there for cash in hand small jobs i want to establish and have a career after all the experience and education and the country’s i have been and seen and tooled my self up with knowledge i want a simple job were i can have a uniform or a name badge contribute to my national insurance and live life save up and settle down simple and plain i have brother and sister younger then me i have to raise the bar and set the standerd high and help my mum out am not asking im not asking if i had a dream im building elevators in it just throw the rope so i can climb it lol. if not im have to take out a loan get a degree and go abroad but aint giving up yet. Lord I am not perfect by a long shot, I confess to you dearly,But I work harder every day,And I hope that you hear me,In my heart I mean well,But if you help me grow,Then what i have in my heart will begin to show, And when I get goin I’m not lookin back for nothin,Cause I will know where I’m headed. Lord knows what im capable of and am not going back to that life style Any way cheer up people patience is key to success and i wish you lot all to have a descent honest job its been more then 24hours i been up looking for a jobs and filling out apps i came across this i had to fill this out. Any qustions feel free to ask me. thanks bye.

  605. Danielle Nash Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:12 pm

    This is probably not going to win but I figured if I write it down, it’s making a promise to myself to achieve it.

    What would I like to see in 2014

    2014,
    Unemployment figures falling.
    New possibilities in areas
    For the minorities who scare us.
    More exams in schools from a younger age
    Recognition for those who don’t make the front page,
    The Brave.
    The Selfless.

    2014,
    Energy Bills falling.
    More live instruments in the charts,
    Meaningful marriages, less broken hearts.
    More uni scholarships,
    Smaller wait on the transplant lists.
    Love harder
    Carpe Diem

    2014 my list can go on, for what I wish to be better than the previous years gone. Like to have more universal respect for women, but also teach women to respect themselves. To learn from cyclic mistakes and see failure as success and be proud of ourselves.
    What would make 2014 better than 2013 for me
    I want an income to live comfortably like everyone else. I’ve shared a small room with my sister my entire life, by the end of 2014 I would like to move out to a place where I have enough space to write my music and hopefully have neighbours who don’t mind my sax. Be able to drive and have a car not too big to pay a lot for petrol, but big enough to be able to carry the groceries back in the back seat and the boot rather than the bus. I will achieve this somehow by the end of 2014 and that’s my promise to myself.

  606. Karl Shatford Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:13 pm

    I want world peace, an end to child poverty, all religions to live in harnony and for world leaders to follow the Mandela model. Oh and to play my part and contribute in some small way, whilst smiling.

I don’t want to sit back and get stuck in a rut or even dwell over how life could have been if I’d done things different. My 52 year old step father has just started taking courses to improve his career and if he’s got the will and spirit then I don’t see why I can’t. I want to start a new career that can give me skills and experience for the future that will see me being employable for the rest of my life.

  617. Janelle Mottley Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:17 pm

    What would I like to see in 2014? Well, first of all I would like to see that the economy gets better so that everyone can have a job regardless of their social status without having to worry about job security or paying bills. Second, I would also like to see a change in government whereby the politicians REALLY listen more to what the people are saying and what they need rather than thinking about their own self-interests. Finally third, I would like it if people were able to treat each other more kindly and wasn’t so materialistic and greedy. I know these things won’t happen, but I guess you gotta live in hope right?

  618. Dave Palmer Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:18 pm

    I would like to see 2014 become the year that there actually is ‘work for all’. For the segregation barriers and labelling to come tumbling down and everyone be measured for ‘what’ they can offer employers and not; how old they are?, what sex they are?, are they disabled?, are they experienced? – and the list goes on. Not everyone can afford third level education but that does not mean to say that, given the chance, anyone can gain experience through employment. They just need a chance to prove their worth.
    Fairytale I know, but would be nice.

    I hope that 2014 will bring more at least than this year for me personally I would like to be able in having no worries regarding next day from financial and employment point of view to manage having your life financially secure not hunting and looking for jobs day by day hoping that someone will give you a chance to prove yourself regarding the job you are looking for might be people much better for certain jobs without experience rather the ones witch already are , I would like also to not make a big deal if you are looking ,applying for a job as a foreign person and in the same time to be able in having a shot as same as the other people

  624. Russ Barnes Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:21 pm

    In Sept, 2013 I relocated to Northampton from Leicester to live with my girlfriend. I left my secure job which I had been at for 9 years. I found a new job pretty quickly in Northampton and on 6th December they told me they had to let me go. I was gutted, not once had I been out of work but now I felt like I had lost everything, especially just before Christmas. I’m searching job sites everyday and agencies have been in touch but I don’t think I will have job before the end of this year.

    I hope 2014 brings me a secure job with a happier working environment with a salary that reflects the hard work I put into it. Then I can be happy again and surprise my girlfriend with something she’s always wanted.

    I want 2014 to bring everyone including myself that weekday buzz and purpose of getting back and making a contribution to society.

    Since I was young I’ve always dreamed to travel all around the world. When I grew up I realized that this is something hard to achieve, unless you’re rich, because travelling is expensive and every place has its price. Also, work always implies stay in a specific place with a couple of weeks a year to enjoy your holidays. This is not the life I want to live. I believe that we, as humans, have been made to discover, create, make experiences and enlarge our point of view.

    For my 2014, to being better than 2013, I hope to find a solution that allows me to travel while working. A solution that gives me the financial security to pursue my dreams, experience that amazing place called “world” and become a better man.

    I hope recruitment consultants stop treating candidates as databases and make an effort to contact everyone on their roll.

  630. HayleyA Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:23 pm

    I want 2014 to provide everyone, including myself, with a sense of purpose in getting up and going to work and making a contribution to society.

  631. Kirsty Sanders Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:24 pm

    I hope to get my foot in the door and start up on the path to career success as i have had a horrible time being bullied at school years ago , did not get to do my GCSE’s as a result of the bullying. Just finished my first qualification in csi:forensic science and no one will give me a chance, so hopefully 2014 will be the year i can finally get going on the career path :). I have belief in myself and i hope other can to.

    I would love to find a forever job.I don’t mind working hard for the right company as lon

    I would love to put my showcased skills and talent into a career that I desire to excel in! To be the best and stretch my imagination, limits and push my boundaries. Contribute everything in my keep to make the world a better place for myself and my family.

  634. shaun moon Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:25 pm

    All I want is to be in a job where my boss a co-workers are more supportive and appreciative of the work I do and in a calm atmosphere to enjoy while I work.

    In the new year i hope to find a new career.A place i can stay for the rest of my working life. A place i belong and shine, but also i would like to help the company i join grow.

  636. Louise Matthews Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:25 pm

    In 2014 I would like to run again, 2013 has been a year of disapointments and injuries ending in being involved in a road accident that has seen me unable to get about for nearly 3 months. I will find my confidence and determination in 2014, life is too short to worry and think ‘if only’ you are never to old to change your life. I can’t wait to re-start my life and find a career I enjoy that works wih my family life. Bring on 2014!

  637. Ian Truman Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:26 pm

    Here are my wishes for next year, expressed through my own version of “The Sound of Music”

    Jobs for the jobless and wealth for the needy
    Employers who respect you and aren’t just plain greedy
    End to all hardship so we can all live like kings
    These are a few of my favourite things

    Loved ones around you and friends to support you
    A job that you cherish and put your heart into
    Presents at Christmas and all the joy which it brings
    These are a few of my favourite things

    When the bills drop
    When the pipes freeze
    When I’m feeling sad
    I simply remember my favourite things
    and then I don’t feel so bad

    Everybody has a dream, I am not an exception. I would like to wake up in a world where people are united, equal and peace loving. I would like to wake up in a world where all of us would work for each other, to make everything right, to set proper direction for humankind. Today we look for differences but in 2014 we should look for similarities. We are all here, on planet Earth. Let’s show our appreciation and love for what nature gives us and let’s share it equal to everyone. No need for fights, no need for wars. Just better world for every single living creature. I believe all of us would participate in such a project. Project 2014 – “Our own world”.
    It may sound fun to you but it means a lot to me: “One for All and All for One”.

  639. Loz Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:26 pm

    After 8 years of hard work for the same employer, I’ve been unfairly made redundant whilst on maternity leave after having my first child. The big consequence is that my mortgage application has now fallen through and we’re stuck at the mother in laws for the foreseeable….nightmare! Sob story over, for 2014 I wish for employment with a fair employer who values and appreciates their loyal employees. I’m sure the prize would go a long way towards making my wish come true :)

  640. Robert Owen Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:27 pm

    I was out of work for many years due to injury. I had to change my career and spent four years achieving a qualification in Accounting. I have gained work experience over the past year which was vital when looking for work. Employers are always looking for experience, so hopefully 2014 will be the year the right opportunity comes knocking.

  641. sarah Skinner Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:27 pm

    I would like to find a forever job.I don’t mind working hard for the right company. As long as they invest in me as much as I invest in them.

  642. Daniel Hall Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:27 pm

    I hope in 2014 I can get a job, so my kids would have a better life and it would be great not to poor for once in my life :)

  643. Hannah Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:28 pm

    I don’t want something for myself, I want something for my partner, who after years of struggling to find employment took a job doing 10 hour nightshifts every weekend just to come and live with me while I’m studying for a degree. He sacrificed a lot to do this and it means so much to me and I hate seeing him dread the days he works. A job should be something that excites and motivates you, not something that pressurises you to stress levels beyond words. I want employers to see past people’s ages, qualifications or experience and give people the chance as even with GCSEs, Extra qualifications and 3 years experience employers still can’t see the potential that Dan has and I know he isn’t the only one. Employers need to give people the chance to GAIN experience, LEARN from it and actually LOVE their job!

  644. Kelly Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:28 pm

    I would love to have a new jobs that I could start from the bottom and work my way up to the top and to show my children that there are great opportunities out there if you put the effort in. Wish me luckxxxx

  645. Paul Duggan Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:28 pm

    What would really make 2014 special would be to have twin brothers or sisters for our 3 year old son.

    My wife is a twin, her mum is a twin. But supposedly they skip a generation – our son will probably have twin.

    Oh, my wife’s not pregnant but as my work is so quiet – we’ll at least have some spare time on our hands.

    Good luck everyone on the job search or career changes!!!

    After struggling so much in 2013, 2014 i want a new career and want 2014 to be my year. After completeing my degree and spending so much money to be told i need to go back to college or need more experience, to find a job in my preferred field, was a bit of a disappointment. Then to get a temporary job in a different field and it to finish just before i got married, this year was an even bigger disappointment!!
    I need 2014 to be my chance to show what i can do!
    Thank you

  648. Jay sargeant Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:29 pm

    In 2014 I want to see people on benifits payed food and milk vouchers instead of getting more money then most of the working people then with the money saved by the government it should be put towards paying working people better as I’ve been with the same company 8 years on the same hourly rate and no pay rise but feeling the pain as the bills still go up.

  649. amber louise ryle Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:30 pm

    I want to progress in a place of work, where I can feel satisfied that total jobs have pointed me in the direction to brilliant multi skilled organisations, where the structure is brilliant and where I can enjoy going to work every morning. Thumbs up for 2014 :)

  650. Melissa Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:30 pm

    The only thing that would make 2014 is getting the job I’ve always wanted working with children maybe being a teacher, helping children with learning difficulties anything to help children, nothing but this could make 2014 better than 2013!!!

  651. jason Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:30 pm

    i would like to see the hourly rate lifted from 6.31 to something reasonable,its hard to get a job as it is when you do finaly land on yr feet and get a job they want you to work for nothing i think its desgusting you work hard for 40hrs a week an take home nothing,people have to take these low paid jobs to pay bills an look after ther familys.when we pay threw the roof in tax on most things.maybe if the hourly rate when up people would take these jobs.

  652. Sandra Owen Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:31 pm

    In 2014 I would love to be matched to an employer where we have the same values, where my desire to help people and give an excellent service were appreciated. This would make me very happy, which would then hopefully impact on my personal life too.

  653. graham keith farmer Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:31 pm

    I would like a job where my age does not cause a concern to the employer and be appreciated for my work ethics.

    We all yearn for a change!! We rave and rant about it almost everyday!! But no one wants to be that CHANGE !! We rant about our paychecks our job our boss our colleagues.. but we seem to think only we are perfect ?? Why not try and step up a notch and prove we are worth it..the only change we need is ppl to change their negative approach and have a positive attitude .show ppl you are worthy of receiving but be the one to give first..
    Change is inevitable ..want a change?? Be that change .positivity is the only change required.

  655. Sandis Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:32 pm

    I want to make two of my dreams finally to come true. One of them is a car, i remember that day whaen I was still learning in school. All the other classmates had a car, but I was not jealous at them because I knew that they did not earn them by themselves but parents bought them. So my dream is to get this money by myself and finally make this dream to come true. Other dream is a laser operation for my scarf, 5 years ago I felt prom a bike and now I have scarf on my left eye, only laser operation can make my face again to look like it used to look before but it is not cheap.

  656. Becky Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:32 pm

  658. Sam Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:33 pm

    After having had the worst year of my life in 2013.. Being told I had cancer in May 2013 at the age of 27 which got cured through a procedure in July 2013 after several blood tests, sample (blood, urine, stool) tests. Following my recovery from the procedure, I found out I had two prolapsed discs at the beginning of September 2013 which rendered me unable to work. This was followed by a car accident at the end of September 2013 which brought in further pain and suffering to my back, right shoulder, right arm as well as pins & needles and numbness in my right leg which causes me to limp. In addition, I had a tooth extraction in October 2013 as a result of a filling that became loose unknown to me that had occurred after having hit my jaw to the steering wheel during the accident. I have been unable to work or seek employment since September due to the aforementioned medical reasons as doctors do not feel I am fit for work. My current sick note is due to end on the 6th January 2014. I hope the new year brings me better luck and more prosperity than the unlucky #13. The sadness does not end here as I lost my 95yo grandfather on Monday the 9th December 2013 at 8.30am. He passed away as I was holding his right hand in a handshake – he took three deep breaths and passed away whilst I was holding onto his hand. The funeral arrangements were sorted and he was buried on the same day at 4pm. I am still in mourning as he was not only my grandfather but my friend whom I loved dearly. By profession, I am a lawyer with a BA(Hons) Law with French Law, followed by a Post-Graduate Diploma in Law and due to not being in employment, I have accumulated financial debts of over £3,500. I am the eldest in the family and my younger brothers who are university students have been assisting in paying the mortgage and bills at home which is an unnecessary burden on them causing them much unneeded distractions from their studies. My father is suffering from arthritis and thus is unable to work as he is on constant pain medication. There are a lot of financial difficulties at the moment, and in addition to the above physical conditions, I have been going to psychological therapy due to everything I have gone through this year. If I was to be the winner of this competition, I would share the prizes with my younger brothers and give the laptop to my youngest brother whose birthday is on the 23rd December 2013. He will be turning 20 and this laptop would assist him in his assignments at university. Furthermore, these illnesses have prevented me from finalizing my further studies to qualify as a Chartered Legal Executive as I have no funds for the course and presently unemployed. I am 18 months away from qualifying which is when I would accumulate the necessary work experience required in order to qualify. Finally, winning the above prizes would give me some consolation that the year can end with some light at the end of the tunnel and show me things can get better and brighter in the forthcoming year.

    2014 – the year when everyone has the opportunity to work somewhere that actively promotes employee-ownership and is located no more that 20 minutes bus ride from home.

    But if that is not possible a part-time job which my 40 plus years of experience could be useful, rather than age being a major problem.
    Oh and more than just one winner getting all of the prizes!!

  664. Lucia Hanakova Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:36 pm

    I would like to be hired by big comapny, which is recognized worldwide and where I can show that with strong personality , confidence, right attitude,hard work and determination everything is possible. I would like to show that even in 2014 if you born poor you can still become rich.. like Arnold Schwarzenegger from nothing become movie star and from movie star become politician.. that if you really want something from your life fight for it, because you never know maybe one day you will be on right place the right time and the dream can become REALITY.

  665. Alan Godden Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:36 pm

    In 2014, I would just like a job that would help pay for the everyday essentials required by my two very young sons with ‘special needs’ and their exhausted mum. The prizes have been extremely well thought out – everything you would need to get the position you desire, kickstarting a new chapter in the lucky recipents life.
    I have found that TotalJobs provide a fantstic service in providing opportunities to get your dream position. Unfortunately after two years of unemployment I am still searching. It would appear that there is no legislating for companies that do not consider the elder person (55) who can give a wealth of worklife experience to the company and their younger personnel.

Sorted my health out now but employers have difficulty employing me due to recent health scare. 2014 is going to be my year, the year of Adam Palmer where I get a job where I’m not looked at because of my health but I’m looked at because of my work and how I’ll give all my time and effort to my job

    I would like peace on earth and less conflict. I would like to see capable countries aid in uplifting less capable countries which would ultimately result in more growth for the more capable countries.

  675. Josh Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:40 pm

    In 2014 I want to be happy! I want to feel happy knowing I am going for it, searching for that job, knowing that I do have the enthusiasm, the drive and confidence to succeed. I want to feel happy when I get e call or email saying I got it! I want to feel happy when I see I’ll be working with great people! I want to feel happy when paying those bills, and being able to treat myself and my loved ones. Happy through the journey of looking for.finding,loving that job!

  679. Michael woolley Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:41 pm

    It would be nice to increase the minimum wage to at least £10 an hour, and to offer people full time employment instead of zero hours, I’m the wrong side of sixty now so I’ve no chance of getting an other job, But while I’ve been unemployed I’ve met some young and bright people while on training causes, It’s a shame to see so many out of work, My wish is to see all these kids in full employment!

  680. Daniel Rushbrooke Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:42 pm

    A fresh start. An opportunity to start 2014 with a smile on my face, and finish 2014 with joy in my heart. To find a job where employees are valued and paid correctly on time. The feeling of jumping out of bed in the morning, excited at what the days prospects may bring. That exhausted feeling you have when you get home from work, a reminder of a hard days work but the feeling of a job well done.

  681. Lesley Watkins Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:42 pm

    The jobs come and go, same the money, but the happiness lived is precious!!!

    I wish that I was able to have a job or an online business one day, so that I could visit my parents (who live in another country) more, than just once or twice a year. They are not getting any younger and I don’t want to be disconnected from my past live so much, I also want to take care of them, when it will be needed. I also wish for people to start thinking outside of the box and see people as individuals, not as groups. We are all different, and all deserve a chance in life. I wish for other people to be healthy, and to have a lot of time for their children in families, because you cannot buy the time. I also wish that less people become a victim of a fraud, or a scam and hope that the scammers wake up and realize, that using others to get “rich” is the worst kind of a thing to do. The last thing I wish for is for people, to be PEOPLE for others, doesn’t matter how old are they, where are they from, and if they are rich, poor, sick or well, wearing stylish clothes or a regular tracksuit. The list would be longer than that, but I wish for myself and others similar to me, and different, to be happy, but out of positive reasons.

  685. Saeed Omar Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:44 pm

    Enter more competitions like this and stop playing the lottery. Stop smoking my own cigarettes, stop watching TV all day and get more sleep, stop looking for a job and start my own business selling people hope, stop trying to lose weight and start eating anything & everything, stop making excuses and be awesome but all jokes aside I hope to meet Aimee Bateman and inspirational Entrepreneurs.

    I would like to see more job opportunity for younger and older people to give everyone a fair chance upon getting a carer that they would love to do everyday. Also for the government to start helping people instead of only thinking about themselves and hope that there are more job opportunity so that student who have large amount of debt would be able to pay it back.

    The first thing I’d like to see happen is January 1st, that’s got to be a good start. Joke. Let’s face it, trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window.
    Someone said to me the other day “The future isn’t what it used to be, you know” and I thought, well, it can be whatever you want, if you really want it to be. Someone else said “Keep thinking of what it is you want, and the mighty forces of the cosmos will conspire to help you get it.” Maybe. Or it could just be that chance meeting, a passing comment or just the wind in the right direction on a particular day that eventually gets you to where you’re destined to be, and wherever that is, you’ve just got to make the most of it. You play the hand you’re dealt and you play it to the best of your ability.
    In 2014, I want to see the results of my hand being played well, hopefully in the form of a job. One that inspires, excites and makes me feel good to be alive, a calling perhaps. I hope you play well too.

    How Best can I contribute to make this world a better place for all, to put a smile in the face of the less privileged. How do I stop or reduce the crime rate in the world. How I stop all these killing and procure a safe place for you and finally, how can I improve the marginal profit of the organization I shall be working with from 2014

    I have never been out of work since my working life began in 1977 then on the 29th of november this year came the news evrybody hates,i was to be made redundant.The look on my childrens face’s was heartbreaking they understand the need for work to pay for everything in life.I want to carry on working i refuse to give up so may 2014 bring me a new job whether it’s in my present line of work or something different i can and am willing to learn new types of work.

  700. Shahin Miah Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:50 pm

    I would like 2014 to be a fresh start for me and my family. I would use totaljobs website to help me find a career which would be rewarding as well as a blessing for my family. My main motive is to get a job which would help my dad with expenses and bring smiles to my parents’ faces. I do want the Government to provide more support for the unemployed as well as provide some placements for those with or without experience. I am totally confident I will get my career started from TotalJobs. Thank you!

  701. Jane Penninck Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:50 pm

    I’d love to find and secure a job that is challenging and rewarding for me and where I can make a difference to my new employer so that he/she is happy to have employed me. Good luck to all in 2014. Be happy and healthy and I hope you find and enjoy your new jobs too.

  702. Lydia Wright Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:51 pm

    Unfortunately, dreams of becoming an internationally famous rock star don’t look every so likely to happen during the next year. As a recent graduate, I’d love to kick off my career in a good direction and give myself the best possible chance to make a success of myself out in the working world, even if it isn’t as a world famous cupcake designer.

    I would love to see myself master lion taming- particularly one from the wild- but failing that to be able to balance an enjoyable work life with my existing hobbies: music, baking, archery, procrastination, etc.

    But what I would most like to see in 2014 is that I have some luck left in me as well as potential, and to see myself winning this prize and (gracefully) lording it over my brother, who once called me nearly the unluckiest person on the planet, second only to Bad Luck Brian.

  703. George Daniilidis Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:51 pm

    I wanna the new year brings health the most important in all people,jobs for everyone without discriminations about race,nationality,sex etc. and i please god to pull out the european countries and not only of the economic crisis due to governments.

  704. Meral Alagoz Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:51 pm

    2013 treated me really bad. It was really stressful at work, I am totally worked out. Finally I have decided to leave my job and start over again but then I found myself in the hospital. There are more it will not anyone make smile so I should cut it short, everything came together and still nothing has solved. I just expect from 2014 a little bit of gentleness, a little bit of luck. Hope I will have my surgery first and get in to a new company in 2014. Like one of my friend pointed out at the hospital ‘what could you expect from number 13′, 14 will be much better!

  705. Peter Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:52 pm

    I would love to have a job, that’s supports me to do the best work that I can, while having fun.

  706. Andy Critchell Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:52 pm

    I hate my boss

  707. Zoe Marshall Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:52 pm

    2013 will hopefully give me a gigantic kick up the bum and propel me into 2014 where good things will happen. A new career, a new outlook, a renewed energy and say goodbye to all the excuses I come up with all the time as to why I can’t get a new job. I need the fear factor gone and the brave factor injecting in to me :) Oh and be paid a ridiculous amount of money would also be pretty good ;) Good luck to everyone entering, well not too much……..

  708. Julija Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:53 pm

    I have a great expectations from year 2014. It is a year of the Horse, so I don’t mind to work like one:)I really would like to go further in my career, change direction a little and to apply for Events Assistant or Coordinator and learn learn learn. There is the quote: “be careful what you wish, because it might happen” ( something like that anyway),so I dream to finally get from next year what I wish – interesting job with good wage (obviously), new people around and challenges. New year, new page, new life!!!!!Yes!!!!

    I want to feel alive again and experience happiness, again!Full Time job with a pension!Someone in my life who wants me just the way I am with Aspergers` Syndrome and often very misunderstood!To be accepted and respected!To move out of rented accommodation and to share that someone`s mortgage.

    Praying that I will get a job in 2014 to have a successful career with a Company in order to ensure happiness and stability for me and my family and job satisfaction.

  714. Andy Critchell Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:56 pm

    In 2014 I’d like to see the inside of my eyelids more while I’m at work

  715. Eleanor cutler Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:56 pm

    Obviously I hope to get a job!

    But what I really want is to win the lottery, after which I will pay off my mum’s mortgage, pay off my university debt, set up university funds for my nephews and nieces, buy up council estatesa and rent them out for super cheap prices to the less well-off and buy 7 red pandas because they’re stupid and adorable.

    I also want season 4 of Sherlock to be announced as soon as 3 finishes, but that’s probably asking too much.

  716. Robert Connor Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:56 pm

    I keep getting jobs that pay £6.40 and I can not afford to work as it is just paying the bills and leaving little else for anything else, I just want to be able to take my wife on a holiday, and to do this I need help to get a better job,I have never been unemployed just unlucky in jobs, but it is better than being unemployed

  717. Clare Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:57 pm

    What would I like to see happen in 2014?

    It’s funny how the bad times in your life make you relfect on what’s important and what you really want from life isn’t it? I suppose when you’re up you don’t imagine coming down, but when you’re down all you imagine is getting back up. So that’s what I want to see happen in 2014, getting back up. 2013 has been a pretty crap year for various reasons so i’m looking forward to a better 2014 which is already looking more hopeful with my Mum finishing her chemotherapy and me and my fiance buying our first house next year, so a new job would that pays well and is rewarding would be a nice bonus (they say good things come in three’s don’t they?!)So here’s to a happy, healthy and hopefully successful 2014 :)

  718. Ahsan Ellahi Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:57 pm

  719. Mohammed Shahadat Hassan Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:58 pm

    I want a full time job that provides progression to make me a competitive for the company, eventually earning more and bringing increased finance in the company.

  720. Karl Wright Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:58 pm

    I would like to see the widespread practice of ageism abolished to give the over 40’s an opportunity to get back to work, employers to realise the true value of their time served employees, end the false economy of offshoring It and business skills, as well as the Government improving the nations education system and providing a genuine pathway for children to progress, obtain meaningful qualifications and be able to and enter the workforce so they can build a sensible future for themselves and for humanity.

  721. Kirsten Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:59 pm

    As a graduate I have not been able to find a job, as university has not equipped me with the skills needed to find one. I hope that I can learn new skills in 2014 to help me acquire one.

  722. Jamie Furness Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:59 pm

    Feedback and a proactive stance on job recruitment. “Sorry, we were looking specifically for Java and experience working in a telco. However, we have checked our database, and have found the following potential roles for you…”

  723. Andrew Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 3:59 pm

    I would like to see more openess and honesty in the market of recruitment from all parties so that we can all be more successfully. Dare I say and find me that great role I am looking foir?

  724. Dan Reynoldson Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:00 pm

    After moving from the East Midlands to Essex in order to provide for my girlfriend and her baby, I would like more local jobs to be available. Jobs with the availability of progression; to work your way up the ladder, proving yourself to be an important member of that workplace. So far I haven’t been able to find such jobs, despite the experience I hold within the office environment. I would also like to see more jobs for the people looking for their first job, everyone has to start from somewhere and without experience, it’s hard for many to work in organisation requesting experience.

  725. Terry Cohen Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:00 pm

    I am working voluntary at present which is o.k. but i would love to get back to paid employment.
    I am 58 and my career spans accounts, administration and general office work.
    I hope 2014 brings me a chance of success as it is long overdue. I have tried really hard to get an office job with pay – something must change for the better i hope.

  726. Tes Ahmed Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:01 pm

    2014 – one vision … one goal – for us all to be the best that we can – employers, employees, friends, family, colleagues to make every contact count and this world a better place

  727. Cdixon Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:01 pm

    I would like to get a job where I actually get to use all the skills, qualities and qualifications I have.

  728. Colin Martin Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:01 pm

    To be fortunate to get full time employment. Hopefully help will be given to the over 50s, we may have experience, but even though it is not admitted by companies ageist does go on.

  729. Thomas Wilkins Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:02 pm

    Its simple!!! I want to get a job that will make me happy and pay me of course and there to be more jobs available for everyone which there hasnt been for the last few years.

  730. GintarasG Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:02 pm

    Hello,
    All good luck in finding your dream job, normal slow TOTALJOBS.COM :) Help !!!!!!!!!!!
    I would like to see me starting a new career and learning more about the working world, I’d love to have some more experience and just know what I would like out of life and make people happy, my family happy. :)

  731. Souvii Chameleone Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:02 pm

    Philosopher Alan Watts has inspired and ebcourages me to be determined to turn my hobbies into my career, so that’s what I am wishing and aiming for; to be a full time self employed performer, predominantly teaching and coaching people to sing and perform in all aspects of life, sing solo duet and in a band, learn how to play bass guitar and really go for it with modelling, acting and choreography!

    Happy new year to me and all!

  732. Glynis Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:03 pm

    What would make 2014 better for me ,
    Than everything that happened in 2013?
    A knight on a white horse to rescue me
    From unemployment and poverty?
    A huge lottery win of millions of pounds
    To spend some (and save some) in leaps and bounds?
    To reverse the signs of ageing and get fitter too?
    Well, I could go the gym (so that’s one of the two)
    So that is my wishlist, but it’s not reality
    For none of those things will happen to me.
    But I hope to become a tutor and help people to learn
    Benefiting others, but at the same time earn!
    In the meantime, I’ll remain as a volunteer
    So Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

  733. Adrienne Wakeling Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:03 pm

  739. Pardeep Jatt Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:06 pm

    2014, 2014 should be a year of a more progressive economy, where the dynamics of Supply & Demand are met to full capacity, making unemployed people like myself able to say one simple phrase to their loved one’s I’m going to work’

  740. Debbie Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:06 pm

    Job = Good Life, 2013 brought sadness but no balance of happiness. 2014 will bring happiness and lot of great new memories.. Stay positive and you can achieve anything! Good luck to the winner of this fab competition.

  741. Steve Collins Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:06 pm

    I would like Santa to bring me a slimmer waist and a fatter wallet, last year he got it the wrong way round:)

    Seriously I would like the chance to make the most of my skills and experience with an employer who recognises my worth and develops my potential.

    Good luck to everyone in their search for a worthwhile career in 2014.

  742. Soheal Simjee Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:07 pm

    I would like to get a job and get back on the career ladder so I don’t feel such a leech towards the hardworking tax payers.

  744. Juliet Porter Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:08 pm

    2014 is going to be the best year ever. The year that my career takes a turn for the better. I get a job that I love and that utilises my skills and abilities without exploiting my good nature or anybody’s. A chance to balance everything and become prosperous and successful after years of studying, working and volunteering I want to significantly contribute to the future of my family,my community and the planet.

    2014 is going to be the culmination of my life’s work I will happily productive and able to support the dreams of my children and my partner to go to University and to travel.

  745. Stephen Davies Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:08 pm

    I would like a job with a company that values educational skills, work and life experiences, and that pays accordingly.

  746. Al Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:08 pm

    I am lucky because I have been offered a job, but I would like to see a different approach on interviews… They are all kind of the same… It would be nice to see something more innovative and see that they are not following scripts and old fashion guidelines…

  747. Steve Jones Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:09 pm

    we all need jobs that we love to do not doing a job because its the only one available, and a decent wage so that we can live not just survive.

  748. tony finegan Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:09 pm

    I have been trying to change my career for the last 12 months, I know the time is right but my lack of practical experience lets me down. At my own expense I have attended all relevant courses and gained the qualifications Cant somebody open the door for me please??

  749. Sophie Hughes Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:09 pm

    Well I broke up with my Fiance this year and am back living with my parents and looking for a new career in 2014 so this prize would really boost my confidence at the moment!! I have been doing voluntary work singing in care homes recently but hoping 2014 has a new job in store for me :)

  750. Kirsty Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:10 pm

    I want to get a fab new job, in my field. I’m scared that I’ll be unemployed too long to be able to get back into the sector I’ve been working in.

  751. Nancy Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:10 pm

    I would like to get a job, in the field I have devoted my part time studies to, I would like to pay off my student loan; buy food and clothes without making mental and manual calculations about whether the prices are going to leave me in the red,each month.
    I would like to hear the words ‘we would like to interview you… Or you got the job, congratulations !’
    Basically the job and money, in order to move back out of my mother’s place, before we hate each other!

  752. misha Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:11 pm

    Honest reasons for recruiting (so that i’ll qualify for my bonus, for example); don’t tax me on my personal allowance without asking!; a really pleasant and professional working atmosphere; more good’n’nice people on security; far fewer hangovers over the course of the new year!

  753. Tim Wickens Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:11 pm

    In 2014 I’d really like to see myself going to a job that doesn’t make me feel totally worthles.

    I need one opportunity at M&S to work as buyer and want to see the brand rocking in uk for homeware. It is my dream.
    It has got such high quality standards so if the price is low everyone would love to buy one from M&S.
    I want to see them in top 4 retailer list. Oh god please give me this chance.

  756. John G Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:12 pm

    Businesses to reignite with passion and belief in what they do and deliver; driving the economy forward; taking risks and investing in people and ideas: not spread-sheets. Business Leaders will inspire and lead. Management will no longer be driven by spread-sheets; but by forecasts, and growth. Investments will once again be longer-term, and everyone will grow and benefit.

  757. Colin Martin Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:13 pm

    I am aged 53 and I have been looking for full time employment for 2 years now since my redundancy from Bank of America, I have applied for hundreds of jobs, most don’t even bother to reply. I believe that there is ageist in companies even if they wont admit it, so for 2014 I would love the opportunity to get full time employment and for companies to realise that age does not matter.

  758. Peter Paku Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:13 pm

    In order of importance 1)England wins the World Cup in Brazil.2)The GoCompare guy disappears completely.3)White van guys politely let you take them over.4)My 17 years old daughter is back from a party at 11 PM Friday with indigestion caused by hot chocolate.5)Public transport is now much cheaper.6)Not a single octogenarian is found guilty for beastly deeds committed 50 years ago, but the ones are active now got caught immediately.7) I lose a stone and a half.8)I quit smoking.9) I am 35 again.10) erm..what…ooh yeah..I find a job my education and skills deserve! That is all, is it too much?

  759. Steve Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:13 pm

    Politicians to stop trying to do business (Serco)and hire us, businessmen to keep off TV (Dragons Den), Chefs to stay in the kitchen (except Nigella), bankers to do their jobs properly, comedians to read the news, make “jobs for the boys” an offence (Paul Flowers), and please stop people texting when they walk down Oxford Street. Have a good 2014 guys.

  760. Aaron Wilson Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:14 pm

    In 2014 I’d like to see myself get a job regardless of whether it’s what I want to do or not just so that I can pay back my parents for all the help they’ve given me. Additionally, I have loads of experience and I just want to make a change by proving to at least one employer that age does not determine your competence in the role and if I can prove that to just one employer then who knows how many young people will get the opportunity to be employed?

  761. Duncan Hayhurst Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:15 pm

    I appreciate employers looking for people that can do the job and have to make short-lists from the hundreds of applications they receive at times but what I see is several repeated failings in their approach.

    Firstly they ask for non specific skills which applies to a wide cross section of people, both inside and outside the areas they are recruiting for which results in them trawling the talent pool and over filling their quotas.

    Secondly they look to fill the post with people already doing the very job they are advertising for which results in the same people recirculating – where are the empty places to be filled being sourced from if not themselves (people leaving a similar role for another only shows to me there is a problem, either with the roles they are leaving or the person wishing to leave yet they still employ a troubled person or one willing to leave if offered a few pounds more elsewhere) especially if they are unwilling to take on fresh faces into the employment net.

    This causes many breakdowns and a circle of employment / vacancies which the unemployed can not enter. Add a few years absence into the mix, a redundancy and a skill gap and you find you can not use any of the decades of skills you have carefully developed and listed on your C.V. (which by now is too long, even though you make your skills look ridiculously brief and bullet pointed to the point of being no more than acronyms).

    To add insult to this impossible mountain you have begun to ascend you then go back and ask ‘the question?’

    Q: What was wrong with the application? Was it the C.V?

    Assuming you get an answer it is most likely to be:

    You are too old, usually disguised as – we are looking for someone with new qualifications, or your experience is out of date.

    You are too qualified for this post, you should be looking for something more senior – we need some school leaver and you know too much, besides you probably only need a stepping stone and will be away in no time anyways.

    Your experience is not current enough, maybe you should try something less demanding – we think you are too old and why not give up or take a part time job whilst waiting for retirement, we can not afford to have you rock the boat.

    I have always helped and been helpful, when I find the key to breaking this cycle I hope I can pass it to you all before age and senility takes over.

    May you all find the corner folded back enough for you to prise open the envelope and enrich what is becoming a poor workplace, devoid of standards of care and professional pride. To you all Good hunting, success and empowerment.

    Merry Christmas and a brighter happier New Year.

      hi Duncan,
      could’nt agree more if there were two of me, seems the scrap heap is the only thing us “dinosaurs” have to look forward to check out my comment later

  762. Steve Brown Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:15 pm

    I would like to employers not to request so many proofs of my existence, be more considerate with people who have long term health conditions that require time off for regular appointments (not that the government helps), have a job closer to home (not 90 minutes away as per government), increases in retirement age should be abolished to help younger people, employers should research more the alternative means of getting to their premises other than stating in their adverts ‘car users only due to location’ (as I have found that some are on bus / train routes) and finally that agencies would pay for bank holidays.

  763. Eric Featley Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:16 pm

    Well, Simple question, so many answers. I just want to create a better situation for myself, it has been a hard year in 2014. Always bills, have to buy food, have to buy gas, electric, pay water bill, as well as benefit requirements which have become utterly stupid through out the year of 2014. I want to better myself, and start being able to give back to a community in the near future instead of the late future or never! Even if I won this and only got a job that was a good job that paid well that I didn’t want to do as much as another job, it would still be a stepping stone, and it’s better to land on stepping stones to get to the other side, than to land in water and not be going any where, which I have been in too many times for too long. I want to get to the other side, make my life for-filling and be able to help my self and anyone else who I can that deserves it to a better, richer and healthier life.

  764. rebecca wanklyn Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:16 pm

    I would love to go into work everday and be able to enjoy job I am doing. Also to be inspired everday by the people I am surrounded by. In 2014 I would love to be to have a family and move into my own house with my boyfriend and be able to afford the luxuries of a decent wardrobe. Also to be able to have the simplest of pleasures of decorating a home and hangong shelves.by having that dream job I will not only have the satisfaction of loving the job I am doing but also having confidencw within myself and self satisfaction. A job isnt about money its being able to enjoy my life everday and knowing what I am doing is worth something. Also too not have people look down at me like I am nothing to be soemone would be truly amazing.

  765. Charli Wicks Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:16 pm

    I would like to move forward in my dream job as a researcher, and be a part of helping those affected by neurological degeneration. I would also like a job which allows me to finally support myself and those around me after years of financial support from them. In summary, I would like to move forward!

  766. Saira Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:17 pm

    I just want a job and to be happy.

  767. M.Plam Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:17 pm

    During this time a little stability would be a nice change, not only for those who are seeking employment but also for GB as well, a little bit of fair chance and kindness and this should be an ideal pace..not only for holiday season but also for us as humans,cheers

  768. Juliet Findlay Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:17 pm

    I would like a get new job in a different job sector where i can use the new skills i have learnt.

  769. Adam Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:18 pm

    Universal awakening and the breaking of the system that dictates we must work and pay tax all our lives instead of going out and growing as individuals. I want the happiness of everyone on the planet and a choice for them to go do what they love rather than do what they must to survive in this corporation run world. The world would be a lot happier place.

  770. Zoe Guest Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:18 pm

    I want a new career that challenges me and helps me to grow as an individual. I would also like to see growth in my pay each month!! I want to have all my debts paid off and to have a good amount of money saved to fund my mortgage deposit. I want to be happy!

  771. REJIN GEORGE VARUGHESE Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:19 pm

    2013 gave me many memories to be cherished in life,on both high and low notes.I hope the same to happen with me in 2014 as well because these things moulds me into a better person day by day.2014,I would love be the happiest man I could be even with a lighter purse so that my state of mind is not so much dependant on currency.Days with no regrets will be my goal when i close my eyes on bed every night.

  772. Shaun Williamson Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:19 pm

    It is simple I need you and Aimee to help me focus on what I am doing wrong in my Job searches, Also to help my create a new CV one that will grab a potential new employer attention and get me a interview and job.

  773. Linda Smith Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:19 pm

    I would like my husband and I to get our preferred jobs in Perth Scotland as we are relocation after over twenty years living outside the UK, wish us luck!!!

  774. Philip John Edwards Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:19 pm

    It is a job that I want, of course. I know the kind of job it will be, more physical than intellectual and skilled, kitchen porter, cleaner or perhaps a manual factory worker. I know that I have tried many times before but I will try again, I want to be happy, I want to have a home, I want to earn money, I want to have a regular job, I don’t want to be special, I just want to be me.

  775. Susannah Weaving Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:20 pm

    All I want is a career which is engaging and pays enough so I can finally move out of my parents house. :)

  776. Andrea Pointon Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:20 pm

    To carry on with career I am in, having worked really hard and achieved lots of qualifications, I don’t want employers to be put off because of my age!! As 50 is the new 40!!

  777. Malcolm Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:20 pm

    Hmmm this is easy !
    Background
    3 years of hunting
    various copies of professionally written CV’s
    more than 2500 applications
    5 interviews
    still no proper job !!
    I do have a zero hours job so I guess I should not complain.
    So what would be good for 2014 ?
    All I really want is the employment agencies to do their job and respond to applicants rather than automatically generated responses.
    I would also like companies to stop being ageist although it is very difficult to prove but when I offer more than the people securing positions it has to be the case.
    Am I asking to much ?

  778. Matt T Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:21 pm

    Well…..

    2013, has been a very difficult year for me and for many. I made the decision to close my Business that I had run for 7 years, which also cost me my marriage. I have learnt so much from it, somethings very exciting, somethings crushing and painful.

    However, 2014, will be a year of great opportunity for everyone to design their future and develop their skills in an ever changing job market. A job market that I am sure has changed for ever.

    For me, I plan to ensure that personal development is at the top of my list for the coming year, which, with a change in attitude and philosophy, will help me down the road to a new job and new career.

    I would like to see a change in the attitude and economy in this country, that will enable not just me, but all those who wish for a job in 2014. We need to make a joint effort to create jobs, that will help make us the country we once were.

    I want to become successful, which will enable me to help others, get that better life we all want so badly. To build myself a career, with others help, that will hopefully benefit many different people in the future in return.

    For things to change, you have to change, something I plan for 2014.

    I want to help people become financially independent, to have an income that allows them to spend more time with their loved ones, to give people hope that the future can be a better place. I want to help people from all walks of life lower their household expenses, so they can breathe a little at the end of each month.

    I want to make a difference to other people’s lives!

  779. Richard Smith Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:21 pm

    I wish for 2014 to bring me employment and prosperity.Never had much luck and the situation ain’t getting no better.Am fed up with doing all the training and not seeing any results.

  780. Neil Chirside Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:21 pm

    Lets have an open market based on skills and encourage employers to look beyond the history to the REAL person.
    Put some effort in and find the REAL candidate-That’s me by the way!!

  781. Maggi Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:22 pm

    I hope to see Nelson Mandela’s influence ripple across the world. As he is right poverty is manmade and can be altered. This is a message to all the banks and large utility companies so that they can decide to pay out monies to make jobs for people who have suffered financially in the last few years – in part due to them.

  782. Derek Smith Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:22 pm

    I would love a new career after being a musician for the last 25 years!!

  783. Debbie Hoare Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:22 pm

    I would like the recruiter to realise that I am THE one for the job instead of always ending up being shortlisted only to come in at second place making me feel that I was so near and yet so far. I have a lot to offer and a lot of experience in my field, I just wish that there were more jobs and that I could come first instead of second for once!

  784. Tony Lawrence Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:23 pm

    My aim for 2014 is to find a position that I can earn what I am worth and to pass on 40+ years of front-line sales experience to a younger generation. I need to overcome the hurdle of inexperienced so-called ‘RECRUITMENT’ consultants fishing for CV’s and not having the courtesy to let me know the outcome of the initial ‘recruiters interview’
    Very poor sales tactic indeed. If the recruiter needs a real salesman, go for someone with 40 years experience with the record of NEVER being under target – EVER

  785. Lisa Markham Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:23 pm

    I would like for either me or my partner to be able to get a job so that we would be able to go out more and treat ourselves and our daughter more so that we could enjoy life more and do things and go places we haven’t done or been to. I would also like this because then we wouldn’t be on benefits and would be more independant. It would be nice to have a happier 2014 as the ending of 2013 isn’t going well for me and my family at the moment and I want to change that.

  786. nashada azam Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:24 pm

    I would love to spend money on my
    Children. Take them to disney orlando
    I would love to fit a new kitchen
    And pay of debt outstanding

  787. Adrian Guest Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:25 pm

    I think the first thing would be to win the competition. I’ve been trying to save up money for a bit of time now and with work being on and off it has not been possible. Also with my son doing his exams in 2014 i would love him to get his grades that he is desperate to get. He is a real genius of the family and to see his dreams come true would be fabulous. The last thong i would love to happen in 2014 would be for me to find a secure, steady job so i can see more of my family and make my life with my family be a lot more secure.

  788. john roberts Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:25 pm

    I just would like a job

  789. Alison Atkinson Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:26 pm

    I would like 2014 to bring me the prize of this competition.

    Laptop – I would be able to use the laptop to prepare accounts/audits at clients premises after getting the job through totaljobs website

    days career coaching – after losing my job mid 2013, my confidence has taken a knock (am I good enough to continue as an accountant). This would help me get my confidence back and help employers get a better employee

    iPad Air – can check my email, download online free classes for my qualification

    Debenhams vouchers – new suits for that professional persona of the accountant

    Toni & Guy voucher – nice haircut to go with the professional persona

    fuller CV makeover – to help me get my ideal job

    careers advice books – to use in conjunction with careers coaching

    Marks & Spencer vouchers – having never received presents for passing exams/job interviews it would be nice to treat myself to a lunch.

    thank you

  790. Jason Widdup Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:26 pm

    A happier 2014 for me would be to have good news fed to us all the time such as, no wars and violance in our world, no sufferers from crime, poverty and love lost with innocent lives being taken by any means. Cures to our most threatening diseases. Humanity generally getting on well and if where disagreement exists compromising to do good for the world, the animal kingdom and ourselves. Generosity for those less fortunate from the more fortunate ones, equality for everyone that deserves it.

  791. Joanne Pidgley Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:26 pm

    I am looking for a whole new life change – new job, new home, new friends, new life. The future starts here, one step at a time.

  792. Richard Horne Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:26 pm

    Well, having taken a few unplanned years out with a stroke, I’m looking to make the new year my time to shine again professionally (alongside starting my Masters) and return to what I’m good at… Circumstances have had me living on both sides of the financial fence, so trust me – I’m grateful for anything unexpected and, and I take each day as an opportunity to prove what I can do. These are wee bits that will help me on my way so so much. It’ll also save me putting in for a budgeting loan!!! Mind you, saying all that, there’s always someone who needs it more than myself. I suppose if I won this, you would be making an enthusiastic and committed job seeking life changing illness recovering half Scottish young-to-middle aged fellow very happy. Good luck everyone :D

  793. Lesley-Anne Paterson Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:27 pm

    I’m ready to enter the workforce after looking after my daughter, I just need the opportunity to show what I can do.

  794. Adrian Guest Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:27 pm

    I think the first thing would be to win the competition. I’ve been trying to save up money for a bit of time now for an iPad air and with work being on and off it has not been possible.

  795. Deacon-Bastyon Duncan Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:27 pm

    I wouldnlike to see the UK follow suit to what happened in Iceland and have the government removed from power and held accountable for the financial crash which left so many people like myself out of work. If that does not happen then a job of any kind I am not fussed.

  796. Priya Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:28 pm

    In 2014 I would like to have a job in HR. I am keenly looking for a job for months and have not been able to find one .I moved to London in Feb’13 post my wedding and have been looking for a job since august. If i had a job i would be able to manage things much much better and I would also be able to take care of my Dad in india. I just hope that the year 2014 brings me better luck . fingers crossed and praying for it everyday.

  797. Francisco Ballesteros Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:28 pm

    I would like to see competent people in EVERY managerial position, and more working class people thinking about their lives and starting a career, not having “just a job”.

  798. alex meadows Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:29 pm

    Allowing people to have the opportunities that they have earned through progression rather than bringing in more middle managers to learn from those below them.

  799. David Allan Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:29 pm

    I want cheese. Loads of cheese.

  800. Elena Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:29 pm

    Everyone is requesting for a job, but what about the environment? For 2014, I wish that people to better take care of the environment, if we don’t have it then for sure we won’t have to work. The stability of this will cause stability on jobs. We should of course keep an eye to the willingness for development, but also to be aware that the technological progress will cause automation and people will be needed less. So from time to time going back to old habits will be good for us as humanity.

  801. Helen Bennett Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:30 pm

    After working in same company for 25 years I finally made the leap & just left! Caring for mum through cancer gave me a true sense of what’s important in life. The job wasn’t important any longer it was just a job a chore a way of paying the bills. So I took a career break & now I’m ready to find new challenges. Whether that’s using my current skills or having a complete career change. I’m open to offers!

  802. Alison Thwaite Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:30 pm

    In 2014 I have 3 wishes for everyone, whatever their own aspirations – 1. Good health, 2.Success, no matter how big or small achieved through hard work, participation in the opportunities offered or created and dedication and finally 3. Respect yourself those around you and help them achieve their goals.

  803. Edwin Mendey Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:31 pm

    All I really want for the new year is a new job whether it is working for a company or working for myself as I had to take voluntary redundancy in December 2012.

  804. Matt Gregory Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:31 pm

    2014 I would love to find that job that re-inspires me, reignites that passion for what I do and make me believe that what I’m doing is helping and making a difference. I work as a fitness manager but don’t do much fitness inspiring as I’m behind a desk doing everything else and then some. I got into the industry for my love of sport and fitness and at present I can’t show that in what I do. A new job would make me believe that this is still the right career choice for me that I have put 13 years in for the right reasons. It would make home life better as I would not be stressing about work as much.

  805. Emil Hristov Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:31 pm

    I hope to be alive and healthy, then to be living a healthy life, the rest will soon follow.
    Anyway: Happiness is not about money, but it is also not in their absence.

  806. Tim Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:32 pm

    I’m sitting in my current job after all the years i have worked with all the experience i have thinking to my self if we did that here we would save money and time, If we did that over there it would save time and make the job safer.
    I talk to the boss and they listen but don’t seem to know how to go about improving the environment they are stuck in.
    I would like a job where i can make those changes and make a difference in the working environment to make my life and my work college life’s happier easier safer and more productive.

  807. Geraldine Clough Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:32 pm

    Since I not seen my dream of winning megabucks on the lotto and retiring early come true I want to get back into work to end the monotonous cycle of boredom and boredom induced exhaustion and also to get off benefits where I am seen as a scrounging Jeremy Kyle watching layabout(despite having worked and paid into the system for over 20 years)and give myself a better quality of life than at present!!!!!!!!!!!

  808. shaun carey Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:32 pm

    i want england to win the world cup as it would make the whole country proud

  809. Neil Naylor Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:33 pm

    A complete review of employment law with far less legislation. People hired and fired on merit. 100% employment making employers good employers in order to retain staff.

  810. Ame Wright Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:33 pm

    2014 is my year to really make a go of it. I’ve spent far too much time in my life not taking it seriously, over the last year I’ve filled my CV with all the voulentary work I can get my hands on and am doing all I can to secure a future for myself and my family. I’m at the point of building myself a platform to begin my career on and would benefit greatly from this offer. 2014 – the year to make it work!

  811. Sam Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:34 pm

    World peace! And a career that reflects my abilities and skills.

  812. zainab Abdulai Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:34 pm

    I would like a job so i can support myself while i study.

  813. Georgia Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:35 pm

    This year I lost my job due to a fall in the market trade.

    I have been trying ever since to get a job, every way possible.
    I’ve recently been going to college to gain some Qualifications in what I love doing best, which is Administration. I’m hoping by next year I have enough money to go back to College and do a Level 2 Administration Course.
    This year has been the hardest so far, and it would be an honor to Win such great things that I would benefit from due to the type of work i’m hoping to get into and appreciate very much.
    I’m hoping next year brings the best for me as I feel I really do deserve it. As I have tried my very hardest in achieving something id never thought id be able to do due to my lack of confidence.

  814. Emma Louise Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:35 pm

    To make my 2014 perfect, I would love to get a job where I can grow both my personal skills and help the company to grow. Ive learnt that being a 20 year old looking for a job is hard work when you’re up against 30 and 40 year olds with years of experience under their belt.
    This prize would definitely help me find my dream job and look the part as well, making 2014 the best year yet! X

  815. Elaine Everitt-Miller Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:35 pm

    My wish for 2014 is for my family and I to be healthy and happy.

  816. adeel Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:36 pm

    well what would i like to see?becoming succesful was one of my lifes goal.if i didnt get where i wanted tobe i would always give it my best and never give up. a fantastic job fe me that help sort all my lifes problems such as providing and living a life of my own instead of living of my parents. a job that would also keep me busy instead of being a boring type of person. i would also like to people really putting in the effort to get where they want instead of being lazy.

  817. George Gibbons Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:36 pm

    Winston Churchill once said, “If you’re going through hell, keep going.”

    Never more has this been so apparent to me than during the last few years. Students get a lot of flak, for dodging and taxes, and for getting highly intoxicated; but what is always overlooked, is our future finance situation. On graduating my Masters now, all I can say is that I am SKINT. I’ve worked full-time to put myself through my Masters, accumulating a hefty debt, to be thrown into a world looking evermore for “1-5 years experience required”. Only an elite few can really get experience while studying; so what do I want to see in 2014?

    I want to get my first job in my dream sector, giving me the experience to catapult myself up the ranks. I want to keep going through this hell, in the face of adversity, to triumph and be a better person. But mainly… I really just want some money to feed my cat. Poor Mittens…

  818. yasser hewidi Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:37 pm

    In 2013 I wish for myself to find a rewarding, progresive career whit a proper, looking after their staff company. I wish to find it through totaljobs.com thanks to winning the prize in this competition. Ho, ho, ho it would be better than winning a lottery! Happy New Year and good luck to all hard working job seekers :)

  820. Oluwatoyin Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:37 pm

    Simply i would like to get a job that would help me in making the world a better place , a job that would ideally put a smile on someone else’s face each and every time i perform it. i would love to be able to adopt a child , or be pregnant with one of mine , and to have my own husband live with me as one. its really not a lot to ask for but it has been a very impossible task to achieve . i will like also to get new qualifications.
    I would like to run a business that self manages , so i don’t have to slave away in front of the computer for too long .
    Also i would like the world to be at peace , no more wars , no more fighting and the world economy stabilized.

  821. Charles Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:38 pm

    Totaljobs means business

  822. Michael Robson Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:38 pm

    I want to work – To show employers I have the right Experience, Knowledge and Passion. To have the Purpose and the Pride that comes with employment. To feel Fulfilled and Alive again.

  823. Jason Dixon Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:39 pm

    I’d like to see the introduction of mature apprenticeship/trainee schemes for those over 24 that are realistic about wages for those trying to learn and support a family at the same time, but don’t live at home!

  824. Robert Sellers Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:39 pm

    2014 will be the best year ever if Liverpool win the title Manchester united win nothing and they fail to qualify for the champions league. That would keep me smiling all year long! Who needs a job if that happens! lol

  825. Jenny van Rensburg Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:39 pm

    EXPERIENCE EXPERIENCE is what Employers are looking for. I have recently relocated from South Africa, and when applying for jobs I am asked if I have UK EXPERIENCE. How does one get any UK EXPERIENCE if you are not employed. I have the necessary EXPERIENCE in my field. What are Employers really looking for? I sometimes feel that Agents and Employers are just going through the motions. I sometimes see the same advert being advertised and never stating its been filled. Oh, the joy of knowing I have employment in 2014, the stability in my circumstances as well as a healthy mind, will be the best EXPERIENCE I can achieve. Roll on 2014. Let see what EXPERIENCE employers can hand out to myself and others.

  826. Philippa Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:40 pm

    Growth in entrepreneurship,
    More of us will have a job we love and create new roles for others.

    I’ll start if you follow.

  827. shaunha Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:40 pm

    I would like career with more people to employee

  828. Stephen Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:41 pm

    There should be more of a range of jobs advertised such as jobs at sea and not just working as a waiter of hair dresser on a cruise ship but also transfer vessel jobs etc.

  829. M Saleem Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:41 pm

    I hope the economy grows in 2014 so that plenty of jobs can be created and everyone who is looking for a job can start a new career. I hope that all wars which are happening in the world must be stopped by negotiations and dialogues so that world can be a better place.

  830. Sam Chisholm Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:42 pm

    To have a job that uses all of my skills and a manager who appreciates the hard work you put in to doing a job well. A company that helps you to progress your career by allowing you time to attend courses even if you have had to finance it yourself.

  831. DT Verster Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:42 pm

    I would be really great if recruiters provide feedback rather than letting candidates “hang”. We all realise there is massive interest in each job posting and it is hard work dealing with each and every candidate – however, customer service is one of top priorities in each job and many people provide customer services to many more customers than you do every single day.

    So please, let 2014 be the year where recruiters provide appropriate feedback – email and phone when you say you will, let your candidates know what the situation is!!!

  832. Dora Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:42 pm

    So -
    I have a place labeled home,
    a man to call mine,
    a dog who is excited
    when I get home at 9.

    Yet -
    I am grumpy in the mornings,
    I am happy when the day’s done,
    in between the two…
    just don’t ask me to do
    ANYTHING;
    I am busy pretending
    that I am actually working.

    (You see it’s a long commute
    to get there…
    and once it’s done,
    it doesn’t get better.)

    Now -
    What do I wish for in 2014?
    A job that makes me forget
    that I am actually working.
    A profession that gives me joy,
    the feeling that I am useful,
    Something I’d do for free,
    yet it allows me to eat and feed*.
    Something that makes my soul sing and dance,
    while I can still pay for the rent.

    You may say I am dreamer,
    but I’m not the only one.
    I hope someday we’ll wake up

    I want everyone who is registered with total jobs to get a well paid job that keeps them financially independent, happy and focused. Oh this includes me too. I would like employers to stop judging people on their CV’s and actually listen to them and their qualities when interviewing potential employees. Respect works both ways big bosses, sit up and take note.

  834. Cass G Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:43 pm

    I would love to take the first steps towards fulfilling my career aspirations which would mean taking the leap from a 9 to 5 office job to working on projects as a marketing consultant.

    Working as a consultant will free up time for me to do more the creative hobbies I never have time for otherwise including painting a portrait to enter into the BP Portrait competition and completing my NLP course. All my tech, including my laptop, was stolen so winning this prize will really be the first step in helping me fulfil my dreams for 2014!

  835. Abdul Thorlu-Bangura Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:43 pm

    I simple will be in a Job advertised through this amazing website. I will make this site know to my friends both employers and unemployed globally. Each move I make to success I will feel proud I found it through this jobs board. Happy Christmas to All and Get Total(ly)job successful in 2014

    For me most importen thing in New Years 2014 is healthy,family,and of course find a good job and begin studying plumbing.My father said :You can be anything you wanna be!!!So why not?Life is too short ….Good Luck to ALL.

  837. Vandana Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:44 pm

    I desperately want a job .. But the recruiters claim that I dont have UK experience and that’s the reason why I am always being rejected .. How am I supposed to get experience if no one is giving me a job …!! I always want to give all the luxuries to my parents who had sacrificed their entire family life so as to give us a good life .. I remember those days of my childhood when my parents find hard to pay my school fees .And That hardships is the one that drives me to be successful in my life . And I also request all the recruiters not to be judgemental and thus give a chance for the fresher’s so as to prove their talent.

  838. ronvaughan Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:45 pm

    I want a new employer for the New Year who wants me for my amazing talents and skill set and what I can contribute to his business and does not look at how old that package comes in!

  839. Jessica Sanders Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:45 pm

    I am currently pregnant with my first baby! So I would love to see a perfect, healthy, be it screaming, little face in July.

  843. Judith Scott Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:47 pm

    I am looking to return to work after a long break and have some experience in Customer Service and admin, however, at 51, even with a recent degree, finding a job with no experience is proving very difficult. I really need someone to take a chance on me and give me an opportunity to show just how hard working and reliable I am. This year has been my family’s ‘Annus Horriblis’ and I would love 2014 to be the year my life changes for the better.

  844. Ladislav Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:48 pm

    Beat 2013 is not going to be easy, this year was terrific! And even if my current bartending job is not the best I have never felt better.

    I only have ONE new year resolution: to become a shipbroker.


    and stay awesome!

  846. Lee Marriott Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:49 pm

    I want to wake up in the morning with a smile on my face, to feel warmer inside my house than outside; smiling because once again I’m on the road to adventure, once again I’m on the journey towards a better tomorrow, a better future; smiling because I’m making a difference and because one step at a time I’m once again able to loose that cloak of shame, the stigma of the unemployed; smiling because once again I am useful, once again, I am – simply me!

  847. Rocky van de Benderskum Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:49 pm

    I would like the government to step up to some of their promises and fund environmental, horticulture and grass roots education. Less of the dumbing down with computer games and more getting and getting dirty hands.
    I would then be back in a position similar to the one I’ve recently become redundant from. Tutor in those very subjects but including Forest School

  848. phillip turrell Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:50 pm

    after losing my job, house and marriage this year i hoping to find a new job and a place of my own to live.
    think i will give marriage a miss.

    oops typo getting out

  850. basira khanom Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:51 pm

    I think everyone should get a fair chance to work, whatever their situation, wherever they’re from. to give everyone equal opportunities to prove themselves capable before judging, not everyone is perfect, or has a great education. many people lose confidence from being turned down too many times, finding it more and more difficult to pick themselves up. but giving someone a helping hand, helping them to not feel worthless may make less job seekers and more appreciative people happy to be accepted for who they are.

  851. nadim azim Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:51 pm

    Mission for year 2014, would like to fully understand the business transactions cycle and the teaching of the greatest successful businessman ever lived on the planet earth Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

  852. Mick Gibbons Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:51 pm

    Would just like a full time perm job and stop being mucked about by agency’s.Would love it if the job was a bit more of a challange and more rewarding

  853. Maija Bissett Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:52 pm

    In 2014, I would love to find ‘the job’ that will make me happy. Who knows what that is though!
    I also would love everyone to have a good year healthwise. I have learnt in 2013 that people can still die from something that I thought was impossible to die from in 2013 in the UK.

    In a nutshell – life is too short. seize the day whenever you can.

  854. Raouf Ahmed Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:52 pm

    Employers to be strategic and innovative in their work and the community too,
    Employees to have opportunities and fulfilment, work-life balance and time for a brew.

  855. Arthur Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:52 pm

    I would like to do something next year, that would make a difference. I would like to be useful for my employer and other people, and to make world a better place to live.

  856. Michel Gaud Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:54 pm

    Hi, I wish to find a job gave me pleasure over money just for the next three years before retiring, passing my 40 years hospitality knowledge, using the extra qualifications gain over the last few years, and forgetting my age.

  857. Sam shanks Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:54 pm

    I would like to see the “catch 22″ lifted, you need experience to get a job, yet you need a job to gain experience…

  858. Kerrie Green Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:55 pm

    In 2014 all I want is for my 2 kids to start sleeping through the night. I will be less grumpy, They will (hopefully) be more chilled and I can start occasionally playing as hard as I work.

  859. ian evans Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:55 pm

    I have worked all my life, I do not want to live on benefits.

  860. mary Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:56 pm

    I have always been volunteering teaching orphans and working in charity organisations and given my all because I had everything up until earlier this year, and I never thought I’d ever need a job so desperately as I lost everything I had. After concieving my first child and flying to visit my parents I come to realise that there was an armed robbery at my place and everything I ever owned, everything including the materials I passionately made for montessori children as well as my certificates, my manuals and albums, printer, laptop, ipad etc was all gone. It was a day when I cried hard only tpo realise that when I came into this world I came with nothing, and god blessed me with everything and now its all gone. The only thing I have left is my baby. I really wish I can win this so I can use the competition to benefit others especially the 60 orphans that i work with. and ofcourse my baby. i am looking for a job but the recruiters claim that they cannot give me priority due to my one month old. Hope I can get somewhere in life and be able to afford my baby’s nappies and formula. i believe god is great and will make a way, probably through this.

  861. Rob Hanley Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:56 pm

    I would like a career that is rewarding and fulfils my ability that is positive for both myself and the company I work for

  862. Debza abdekrime Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:57 pm

    Well I recently got both my qualifications for fitness instructor and personal trainer
    So what I wish for in 2014
    Is a job not so much as personal trainer where I get to charge loads if cash to train someone per hour but rather train the peoples who cannot afford to pay some 30 pounds an hour
    I want to train the joe s and the Pete’s and Marie’s who cannot afford to lay off such cash but still deserve the knowledge and skills and help and compassion to achieve their goals
    I don’t need a crazy pay checks either as long as I can pay my bills and eat well and maybe every other year go a week some place nice
    That what j wish for an employer who will give the chance to do that and allow to practice what i
    study so hard to do
    Sometimes a little less is good
    Having a job at all in this economy : isn’t that a bonus all by itself
    Happy new year to all

  863. Daniel Spafford Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:58 pm

    I would like the next year to be a lively and uplifting year that is full of money making plans and forward thinking ideas, also a fresh look with strong focus and direction on the various ways I can make this happen!

  864. maka Boizi Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:58 pm

    Hello, I would like to have more opportunities being offered to people like me, parents, people who have life experiences ready to muck in, willing to learn and improve! I would like the world to be just fairer with more jobs and careers! I would like a job which would allow me to offer more to my children than just the strict minimum when I have done 4 years of studies and graduated with a master degree! I wonder is it to much to ask?

  865. Soile Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:58 pm

    I like for 2014 to hold a job for me – a job where I can settle in and let the role grow and me to grow with it- I like to travel to far away places and to come home to my home and my job. I like to have the time and money to see my family more – Basically I want 2014 to be a nice year for me, my loved ones and – well everybody really.
    I think 2014 hold so much possibilities and I will do my best to help and make 2014 a good year. Merry Christmas and a very happy new year

  866. michael tatham Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:59 pm

    i’d like to get a new job and for people to taking my age into account, as it seems that is what stops me from getting interviews

  867. Dionysios Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 4:59 pm

    First of I would like to thank the management group of this website for their excellent work. I am looking forward to 2014 because I am positive that it will be a successful year for me and people like me,who have the right qualifications for the IT department of any company. I would like to wish GOOD LUCK to all the people that want to find work in 2014!

  868. Leslie McCormac Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:00 pm

    A shiny new job with help from TotalJobs is the best present I would like in 2014.

    Of course I am seeking a top and joyful career in the nearest future of 2014.

  870. stefania Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:01 pm

    I would like 2014 to be the year where potential employers finally understand that exportable skills are far more important that specific experience in narrow fields of business, that, given any vacancy, they ought to seek the smartest person who applies, not the one who has used a particular software before!

  871. Alina Muresan Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:01 pm

    ..big plans for 2014…i have decided next year to be the year I am going to make an important change in my life.I am planning to invest everything i can (attention,finances,time)into opening my own beauty salon,that is my dream and ,hopefully, I will get the chance to see that happening soon:)

  872. S C Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:01 pm

  873. Lizzie Gregory Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:02 pm

    I’d like to find a career where I feel I am making a difference, fulfilling my potential and achieving all I can. There is a saying that if you find a job you love, you never work a day in your life. I want to stop wishing my life away wishing it was Friday xx

  874. Alistair Cook Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:02 pm

    I’ve always felt that there’s no point on dwelling on the past, it’s a shame potential employers don’t see it that way most of the time. Ideally I don’t actually want someone to give me a job, I would much prefer to be in a position where I could give someone else a job. However, that doesn’t seem to be very likely without a great deal of support and understanding. As Abraham Lincoln said: “Look for the bad in people expecting to find it, and you most surely will.”

  875. Sheila Daniels Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:03 pm

    2014 Must be the year that the recruitment and job market changes. A chance to move into the 21st Century and assess peoples skils and abilities in a different way. Take out the prejudgements that skill labels create and look at the bigger picture. Maybe the interviews/assessments could include attempting to do the job being applied for to establish suitability.

  876. Aphrodite Charitaki Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:04 pm

    I could sit all day and sob,
    “How much I’d love to get a job!”
    I spent all day going through ads
    “english”,”legal”,”business” tags,
    searching all day and night through,
    while eating, walking, on the loo,
    constantly jazzing up my CV,
    my cover letters are pure poetry,
    hoping that one of these days,
    a recruiter will be just amazed,
    by my skills of expertise,
    and they’ll drop down to their knees,
    blown away, truly inspired,
    begging for me to be hired.
    Or perhaps that I will just
    make it past the e-mail part,
    and have just one interview
    where I’m certain to come through,
    with my wits, charm and dedication
    there will be no competition!
    But if that’s not going happen,
    at least not any time soon,
    maybe you guys will see my talent,
    and you’ll pick me for this boon!
    So, if I can only get this win,
    that’s what I’d like 2014 to bring!

    …for me, at least. For everyone else, world peace. But if I can just get a job, I’ll see to that too. Happy Holidays!

  877. kallen Daynes Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:04 pm

    I would like to see myself and all other unemployed people get jobs that will provide them and me with happiness and a feeling of pride in what they do.

  878. catriona Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:05 pm

    Focus on building my experienc, knowledge and progress in life as much as possible. Finish writing my book. Get a new house (well try scrimping to put towards deposit). Everyone to focus more on the positives and avoid being negative. See the silver lining etc. Jeee I dont ask for much eh :-)

  879. Grace Johnson Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:05 pm

    I saw something recently with a simple quote: ‘Live love laugh’. That’s what I hope for throughout 2014- to live life to the fullest, love and be loved, and laugh with my family and friends. Good health and happiness for my family is always important and I would be very grateful to find a career I am passionate about.

  880. Catherine Howie Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:05 pm

    I would like to find a job as a veterinary nursing assistant in my local area when I finish college in May 2014 this would be my ideal job as I want to become either a veterinary surgeon or nurse. I would like to help people and animals at the same time and make a huge difference to their lives and this would be a dream come true for me. I would like to do this as either a full-time or even part-time job would be absolutely fine during my gap year from May 2014 until September 2015 and as a part-time job whilst studying for my veterinary medicine or veterinary nursing degree. I want to get my own place with my fiancé as I’m sick and tired of us both still living with my parents for almost our entire relationship. It’s time for us to live on our own and I would like us both to be able to drive by the end of 2014 as well which would be amazing.

  881. Craig peedell Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:06 pm

    Having lost my confidence, I need to get it back.
    I’m not scared of hard work. I just need help to figure out what is right for me.
    I know what I’d like to do, I would now love the opportunity
    To spend time with someone that can help me decide if what I want to do is what I should do.
    Whatever happens 2014 WILL be my year.

  884. elena nugent Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:07 pm

    I would like to live abroad, because I’ve never done it before. I would like to see all friends of mine (and me too! :) )with the work of their dreams. Or perhaps just a work to be independent.

  889. Elizabeth Clapton Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:11 pm

    I would like 2014 to be year that my dreams will come true, I would like to start a career in the sector I am passionate about, I would like to be able to buy my own house and I would like to marry the man that I love.

  891. Lucy Taylor Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:13 pm

    What I would like in 2014 is to be able to progress within the company I am currently working for without being told I’m not confident and I don’t know how to prioritise things, I would also like to be able to start saving so that I can go back to college to do an Accountancy course because that has been my dream job since I was at school.

  892. Rob Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:13 pm

    I’d like to see last years changes to employee protection repealed. the government do a total u-turn on benefit changes. the job market to open up and embrace the workforce. and a brand new job for me.

    i want to be able to secure my own and my families future. after applying for lots of jobs i’m still searching for something secure and permanent. since my husband died suddenly in 2009 i have found myself going from one temp job to another, putting my kids first. Now i want to get back on track, secure all our futures including my 1st grandchild who is just 5 weeks old.

  894. Alan Dietrich Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:14 pm

    For employers to look beyond the simple narrative of the job description and look in to the characters and skills sets a prospective applicant can bring to the role and company as a whole. Qualifications are one thing but a free thinking individual who can demonstrate a level of intelligent can be just as important. Also clients to look more long term rather than quick fixes, then if both parties shares the same targets they both can grow together for the better of both parties.

  895. Marina De Salis Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:15 pm

    For 2014 we have to apply all we have learned in 2013, all skills we have gained with just applying for jobs also we have to go out and meet people by doing voluntary work or community work, you never know who knows who, also by being positive and helpful to other people you may find your true career path. Do not compare yorself to others as we are all different but basically we are all the same we need for a job to support ourselves and famulies so do aim high you have to know where you are going to get there.

  898. Natalie rosnovanu Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:17 pm

    As much as I like to sit and learn the ukulele…speak another language and watch box sets until my eyes go square I would quite like a job! 2014 please will you grant me the favour of being employed! I might get pins and needles in my legs if I sit around any longer…thank you kindly for listening to my comment I will write a song in honour to this moment x

    I’d like the chance to spread my wings in the field of design, as I haven’t really been given the chance. Here was me thinking after University I would go straight into an animation position – that was 3 years ago, and still not found a full time role!!

  900. Mukhtar Alam Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:18 pm

    In 2014 if get a job in U.K I would like to thanks those organization who give me an opportunity & understand me & my family. I belongs from middle class family. Now a days my days are going very bad & trying jobs here & there. Presently i am working in Shipping company as a operation but for past few month our company position is not in a good position. May be this the last month of my jobs. So i was worried about my jobs i don;t know what to do though i am family man & my family are depend on me. Thats why i trying to work in Abroad. Sir once i get chance i will do my level best to give the management satisfaction through my performance.Hope you understand and do the needful.

  901. Marc Goodman Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:18 pm

    In 2014 this is what I would love to happen – spend time writing my Cv on my Acer Aspire V5 laptop (and of course playing candy crush) then spend the day talking to Aimee Bateman covering topics such as highlights and lowlights of 2013. After the day with Aimee I just wanted to pop in to Debenhams as I heard the suits are top quality then get my hair cut at Tony & guys. Whilst at Tony and guys rather than read the lad mags they usually offer I would decline and say I brought my own selection of career books. When my CV had had the makeover it desperately deserved I would send it out like a carrer pigoen until it returned with the news we all want to hear a job offer! Only one way to celebrate a job offer and that’s a slap up meal at Marks and Spencer’s! I don’t want a lot for 2014 just to the opportunity I deserve.

  902. Joanna Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:18 pm

    I would like to work for a company that respects disability and offers part time working conditions without being forced to do a full time workload into part time hours.

  905. Rhian Noon Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:20 pm

    What I would like to see happen in 2014… I’d like a happier year for friends, family and colleagues. 2013 has been a year of illness, loss and redundancies and I’d love for happier memories to be made. On a personal note I’d love to finish my qualifications, progress in a new job role after being made redundant and hopefully get a house. Bring on New year!

    In 2014, I would like to see London becoming a fat-rat’s race.
    Pace would drop a bit, wouldn’t it.
    Fingers crossed Londoners!

    Many of the comments already left are in the first person. I want jobs for all; and not crappy “zero hours contracts” or workfare; where peoples true talents can shine; and wages meet the “living wage”; and greedy politicians earn performance related pay while taxing those who “can pay” but “don’t pay”. Not much to ask for, so for my second and third wishes may I ask for a smidgen of peace with a whole lotta love.

    As one door closes, another opens, and 2014 has the prospects of a fulfilling job for life. Or more time in the dole office. Stay positive!

    I would like to see more employers using Total Jobs as this is a fantastic way to advertise vacancies. As a job hunter I find the service simple and professional.

    All in all I really need,want and wish for a good(better) health for me and my loved ones in the 2014, because without that no money and no job matters. I would also like to get ahead in my career and do good with what I have in life, I wish for kind, honest and happy people around, I wish to see my family more often, to find love and happiness and to finally settle here in London or somewhere else.
    All the best wishes to you all for the New Year! :)

  911. Angela Godwin Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:23 pm

    In the year 2014 to come,God sparing my life,improvement is going to be my watchword. Becoming the best at what I do! Standing out among my peers! Doing whatever I do because I love to do it and not because I have to do it or for the pay. And finally,having the ability to smile,even when the road is rocky. All ot these will make my year better than the years past! Thank you.

  915. Steph Nixon Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:24 pm

    I’d love to join a company who values individuals, who can see past the negatives and who appreciate how useful experience of mental health troubles can be in industries like engineering. I’d like to help aid awareness of mental health issues within the workplace.

  916. Charles Fon Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:25 pm

    I want to be able to get a job, based on my merit and qualification and not based on connection.

  917. TRACY Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:25 pm

    I would like to have see a change in my career and to feel valued for always doing the best that i can do and been a fabulous employee.

  918. Laura McLauchlan Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:25 pm

    In 2014 I would like to find a job that actually challenges my potential so that when I leave work I feel as though I have actually accomplished something that day.

  919. stephen fray Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:26 pm

    All I would like is a opening to appear for an over sixty year old, who has plenty of experience, and still has the get up and go factor.Like everybody else a carrer with security and prospects, for the future.

    For which I promise commitment.

  920. Joyce Fisher Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:27 pm

    Would love to see real caring and loyalty in the workplace, lets put people before profit and spread some warmth, especially to our elders, we can still learn so much from them, lets look after those that looked after us.

  921. Alex Osborn Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:27 pm

    My dream scenario for 2014 is quite simple really. I would love to able to go do something where I feel I am making a significant contribution to not only my life but to the community as well. I want to be able to say I’m giving back and creating a legacy for those that follow me.

  922. P Gee Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:28 pm

    Thanks to Totaljobs for giving us the chance of a wonderful generous practical prize to enhance our job prospects. Humbling to see that we all would wish for the job situations to be better, both for or working lives and our families. Regardless of the outcomes for us all in 2014 and for the happy lucky winner, may I wish you all a Merry Christmas and fulfilling employment in 2014.

  923. Ch Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:29 pm

    ….in other words:

    “I’m taking what they’re giving ’cause I’m working for a living” (Huey Lewis and the news)

    It would be nice if I could ACTUALLY make a living with what they’re giving.

    Unlike Huey Lewis, i don’t want a “new drug”, I just a new job:
    “One that won’t make me nervous,Wonderin’ what to do…One that won’t keep me up all night…Or make my face break out” .

    Enough of the unnecessary stress and bullyism in the workplace.

  924. kendall riehl Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:29 pm

    I would like for employers to give everyone equal opportunities instead of going by what your grades are or the gap between employment so the people who struggle in life me included can do something about it. Instead of sitting around moping about what it would be like now if I had a job.

  925. David Blatch Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:30 pm

    I only put my c.v. up about 4 weeks ago, Since then I have had two interviews and sent six application packs. My c.r.b.check came through today and i was offered a job depending on references along with a contract. So in fact i already have what I want for next year and just wanted to wish you all the best in 2014 for job searching knowing it can be done.

  926. Robbie Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:30 pm

    I would like a job, For now I will take any job, I have bills that need to be paid. More than this I would like a job that does not leave me feeling hollow, with rewards beyond monetary gain in that I can be proud of my days work and a part of me invested!

  927. john money Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:31 pm

    All i want for xmas is a job!!! simple please hurry Santa!!

  928. Karen Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:32 pm

    I like the idea that anything could happen in 2014. I started 2013 thinking everything was hopeless and now things are starting to get back on track. I’ve accepted lots of susupport and now it’s time to give something back, so please give me one last push and help me get into a teaching career.

  929. Alex Dean Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:32 pm

    Ahh… I’m such a fussy person to be honest, next year I’m seriously hoping to get job in tech/retail but it has to be something to do with my university course (BA Computer Game Design), anyway, I had my intervi with CEX 2 weeks ago and I’m hoping to hear from them soon, if I’ve got the job then it’ll be a very happy 2014 for me!

  930. Samantha Gaudion Friday, 13 Dec, 2013 at 5:33 pm

    2014 is going to be a whole new year of new starts! New relationship and I’m moving to London so new place to live, new lifestyle and most importantly new career! This prize package would kick off the New Year beautifully!
