MusicWeek4Jobs also provides careers advice, including guidance on the preparation of CVs and best practice for interviews.

Martin Bojtos, Music Week's recruitment manager, highlighted the advantages of the new service for job advertisers. "For both our established recruiters and new companies, uploading and buying recruitment slots is even easier," he said. "Companies can buy credits and then upload their own adverts and they are online within minutes. Recruiters also have options to further highlight their jobs in a number of ways on the section."
