8. Q. Whenever I do a search or attempt to register I get a 'Page Not Found' error.
A. This is an unusual problem and should not happen regularly. It could be that you are using a non-compatible browser. The minimum requirements are Microsoft Internet Explorer IE4+ browsers or Netscape 4.08+ browsers. If your browser does not meet the minimum requirements please update.

An alternative is that the time lag from your request to response from the database 'times out' on your browser. Try logging on with a faster Internet connection, or accessing the site in non-peak Internet times.

Let us know if the problem continues and we will investigate in greater depth.
9. Q. After I click on the Job Title and view the advertisement details, I press 'Back' to continue the search. I then get a message saying 'Warning Page has Expired'. I then have to begin the search again from jobs 1 - 10. At this stage I may be at jobs 51 - 60 so I have the inconvenience of having to start again from the beginning.
A. All searches are conducted through a database. The 'Warning - Page has Expired' message appears because you have used the 'Back' button on your web browser. Do not use this button to return to the list. You will find that the job advertisement has a back button at the top and bottom of the page. Use one of these buttons to return to your list.
10. Q. What if I am having difficulties accessing this web site and require technical support?
