    in my sector which is financial things have been screwed since 2008 although you can say that about most sectors

    banks are lending less and customers are buying less...either i take a job with the comfort of a basic salary or keep going and try and earn more without it which could mean the next few months could be painful!

    changing sectors is difficult for me after 10 years so my other option is to start up a business something ive always wanted to do!

    Front end sales, targetting and sellin a particular banks finance for assets raging from software to machinery (more technology than anything)
    Also running a finance programme for vendor partners so getting suppliers of It to use a finance programme run by the bank.

    I would rather have been in Wealth management or selling investments to High Net Worth Individuals.
    Equity companies are also big bucks, James Caan owns one those markets are generally able to avoid the recession as well especially when your dealing with generations of wealth...

    I'm with Barclays and Lloyds and a centurion card holder all three hae told me this week their goals r to lend more as more people want to borrow and obviously banks need to lend!

    Each institution told me same
    " out drive was to recruit clients now it is too Lend as much as we can"
    The double dip economy doesn't figure in those already doing well even of net income less they can still grow and borrow and this as far as I and my colleagues are concerned !

    Banks r now driving to Lend more they need profits

    Depends on individual circumstances Scott, as an individual with a good credit history not too many borrowings and or home ownership and you should be ok borrowing for a car or a personal loan. Howvere as a business who may have hads some sort of downturn the odd blip in trading and some current borrowings and you will struggle, this is common of alot of smes.

    Statistically bank are lending billions less than than the government says they should be...end of the day banks are there to make money its not a public service like many think they are!

    ive had 5 interviews so far 2 jobs i didnt get and 2 interviews for the same job so fingers crossed on that one.
    Over 100 applicants for the jobs ive applied for!

    Job seekers are usless ive once been on job seekers in 20 yrs and they said i cant have any due to my ni contributions so i had to go down today with my p60s.

    Housing benefit is a joke aswell i have to give them all my bank stats, m mrs bank stats, utility bills her name of which she has none and it takes 6 weeks to process the claim.

    Ive know i was going to be out of work since the middle of last month and ive not recieved a penny so far!

    last two sessions been a bit mediore down on reps think ive cut carbs too mcuh too quick so upping them just reducing portion sizes a bit.

    Looks like ive got myself out of this hole and had a job offer through so thats a weight off my mind!

    Shoulders later will be going for getting 8 clean reps out of the 40kgs dbs im sitting around 13stone at the minute so come down a few pounds!
