To: Amanda Barfoot From: Ben Hardware Date: 12th November 2008 Re: Recruit Me Agency Annual Report This is the Recruit Me Agency annual Report, including job percentages and employee notifications regarding jobs positions from 1997. Percentages Seeking Different Types Of Work Type Of Work 1997 1998 1999 2000 2001 To Date Retail 36% 34% 52% 55% 58% Clerical 27% 24% 28% 33% 34% Production 18% 15% 6% 7% 2% Entertainment 9% 15% 5% 2% 3% Bar Work 10% 12% 9% 3% 3% Averaging in 1997, Retail work opportunities have managed to increase and stabilize into the working environment by steadily increasing from the stationary format in 1997-1998 of 34-36%. Now at increasingly high percentages, Retail jobs have enjoyed their best progress from 2001 onwards as they fluctuated a 58% percentage of working jobs, steadily increasing from 1999.

Bar work however provides a low key, low wage environment, un-advert sable towards clients in today's modern environment. Concluding my report, I am now able to establish the significant markets which would provide a maximised profit into my business. These industries consist of Retail and Clerical jobs which have clearly shown a high increase in employee population, meaning, I am able to focus on specific audiences without wasting time or money on un-needed types of work. To maximise profit, I have to ensure I am focusing on the most profitable industries which would help to increase the business's overall profits. By realising the most popular demand of working jobs, I am able to focus advertisements entirely on Retail and Clerical audiences, this can then help to ensure I am bringing in or attracting a highly successful audience which will help to support my company's finances. ...read more.
