I have been using UK music jobs for a while now but just recently found a way to make it work for me. I found that little button that sends a friend request to musicians listed there. I blogged about it on UK music jobs site.
“I recommend a change of mind set to all of you registered users of this site. Stop waiting to be discovered and start making your career happen for you. Whilst Music Jobs is not Facebook or Twitter, nor does it claim to be, you could still connect to anyone who is listed here and search for the most relevant people to you and in the area where you live. Once you do that I’m confident that you will find some real value in the site and the membership fee (which a lot of people complain about) would seem insignificant.”
