    I think quarter on quarter (q-o-q) growth and year on year (y-o-y) growth are normally good indications. And unemployment rate too!

    i think generally if you read the papers or hear the news, you would get a feel of how the economy is doing.

    Hard to tell without looking through your resume cookies. It also depends on the job you are looking for. Maybe you can have a discussion with a recruitment agency and get some feedback?

    i actually responded to some recruitment's agency ad as well and only 1 called me up for interview.

    my friend was looking for a sales job in the events and exhibitions industry and i was looking for marketing job in retail.

    maybe i was under qualified for a managerial post.

    Try popping into the recruitment agencies' offices and speak to the recruiters instead of applying and waiting for their calls
