How do you get a job at a job centre?
It occurs to me that this will be the one growth industry in the UK over the next few years and I want to get in while the bonanza lasts. Perhaps I should turn "entrepreneur" and offer to open up private job centres (with no jobs available, naturally).

sensible employers do not try to find workers at the job centres because they are full of layabouts. the real workers will be found at employment agencies where they will be actively seeking work.

If I wasn't retired and looking for work I really don't think I'd bother.
