The 3 Best Websites To Help You In Your Job Search....Probably

The Pay Index

This is a great website if you’re a young person currently in education. It’s not the easiest of sites to navigate at first but there’s a handy video guide to help you to get going. You’ll need to register on the site first.

The website will help you to find the answers to the following questions:

  • How might a university degree affect my future salary?
  • What value would a degree bring to my future job prospects and employability?
  • How would doing an apprenticeship affect my future salary and career prospects?
  • What is the gender pay gap and what could its impact be on my salary and career prospects?
  • Does where I live or go to university affect my future job prospects?
  • How much is the cost of living in my area or the area I want to live?

Career Pilot

Again, this is another site aimed at teenagers, but it’s actually useful for anyone who is considering a career change. Firstly you can search jobs by sector. This can help you to be aware of a range of potentially suitable jobs that you may not have considered. When you delve into specific jobs, you can find information on the different pathways to the job, the number of people who do the job by region and you can even look at current live vacancies in your selected region of the country. There may even be a video clip of someone who does the job talking about their role.

If you register on the site you can also upload a personal profile where you can add your skills and qualifications.


Glassdoor is a website where current and former employees anonymously review companies. Glassdoor also allows users to anonymously submit and view salaries as well as search and apply for jobs on its platform.

To get complete access you’ll need to contribute an anonymous inside look of your own - whether it's a company review, salary or interview review. Therefore it’s only suitable for those with work experience. But even if you’ve had a part time job at your local supermarket, you can add a review of your employer and then you’re good to go.

Finally, if you're keen to check out your suitablity for a particular job role, you can take an in depth psychometric assessment

What Our Clients Say...

Last night, we had the opportunity to have a good chat about things, and he was (I felt for the first time in a long time), upbeat about what he needs to think about and get done.

He showed me the test results which I think has given him a real confidence boost, as well as having consolidated a lot of things for him in his own mind.

And your post call summary has also had an effect, as he seems to be much more ‘in the zone’, giving him the impetus with a plan on how he gets things done.

Heartfelt thanks from me, his mum, as it has felt like quite a difficult time for all of us!

Mark is passionate about his work and very sensitive to the needs of his clients. I was lucky to work with Mark in the international surrounding where he shared knowledge and skills regarding career counselling with the group of youth workers coming from 8 European countries.

Through his work he challenged many limiting beliefs and helped me and others to realize our potentials in a better light and get ideas for helping others do the same.

I strongly recommend Mark for any challenging task since he proved to be flexible, process oriented but also having results in mind, and the most important of all, very positive and inspiring co-worker.
My daughter Lucie and I both gained a lot from your talk and found your approach to finding what the right path may be, very positive.

Thank you!
Before I contacted Mark, I didn't believe that I could pursue the career I really wanted but after a few sessions it began to feel that my dreams weren't so unrealistic after all.

By the end of the course, I had the confidence to make steps towards getting the job I always wanted.

Mark was our trainer in a 7 day International Training Course on topics of youth career guidance for youth workers from 8 countries. His work is amazing - aside from providing skills for our work, he helped us to think over our lives and things we want to do. This training course and his energy gave me a new wave of enthusiasm for both - working with youth and developing myself. I hope I will have the opportunity to work with him again.
I came to Mark to gain focus and direction as I was awash with ideas and not knowing which to follow. Mark guided me through exercises which systematically drew out my interests, skills and preferences. I am now in a position to drive forward on key ideas with clear goals on what I want to achieve and how I'll know when I have. Thanks Mark!

I had no clear idea of where I wanted my career to go, except that I didn’t want to carry on with what I was doing. Working with Mark has been instrumental in giving me the right questions, and gaining a good understanding of myself so that I could change direction. His sessions were well structured whilst giving sufficient freedom for different lines of enquiry. And it’s a long time since I enjoyed homework, but I really did relish the work he suggested between meetings. I would thoroughly recommend having Mark coach you through your career conundrums.

I worked with Mark during a time of huge personal transition. He gave me invaluable insight into myself, which has had a direct impact on the course of the last 6 months of my life. The coaching sessions I had with him prompted me to take action in the direction of the career and life I really want, rather than doing what I think I 'should' be doing to please other people or fit in. He also got me thinking very differently about the options available to me, which opened doors both in my mind and externally in the world. Mark has outstanding interpersonal skills, which really helped me be at ease and take risks to be completely honest in our sessions. I highly recommend him and his service.
