    Fresh, light, cluttered

    Fairly standard layout, but an appealing, light design, very tastful use of unobtrusive yet effective decoration.

    It feels slightly cluttered because of the many different items present, especially at the home page. There, I'm not too wild about the repitition of the site logo in the central graphic. Also, the "Mono" advertisement competes with the site's own logo.

    I'd suggest to move the mono ad away from the header, at least not on the same level as the site logo; ads are one thing, but your best real estate should be for you!
    You could add a tagline to the main logo on the homepage to explain what this site is about at a glance; the central graphic with "Irish Job Search Engine" and the text underneath it sort of already do this, but moving it up to the header would make the message a lot stronger.
    Also, the site's purpose is repeated in the home page centre column a couple of times in different wordings; sort of an indication to me that you felt it needed some more explaining, too...

    About the implementation... I see a lot of tables, some of which I'm sure can be gotten rid off, although you did use lists for a number of... well, lists, so that's great!

    Also, I stumbled upon some mysterious XML-ish code, by the looks of it inserted by some HTML editor; if you can get rid of it, do: it's wasting bandwidth.
    I missed a doctype declaration at the top of the home page, and although you employ no less then ten (!) different style sheets - by the looks of it most of them having something to do with the editor again - there are still a great number of inline styles everywhere.

    I guess most of this is caused by the editor you've used; I strongly recommend finding some better product, because this one adds way to much unnecessary junk to your pages which amounts to nothing than wasting bandwidth.
    If you can indicate your level of expertise in HTML, CSS, etc. I'm sure people in these forums can recommend something useful.

    I take no responsibility for the above nonsense.

    Ah, there's the XML...

    I was sort of waiting for some browser to actually render those XML-style editor additions; could have know Mozilla/Firefox would...
