Job search
Welcome to this Futures workbook on finding work. It is split into several sections describing different techniques for finding work. You can dip in and out of the different sections; however it is not wise to rely on only one mechanism for finding work.

2 The word ‘freedom’

The word ‘freedom’ can have powerful emotive force, that is, the power to arouse strong emotions. Its connotations are almost exclusively positive.
