Search Tools to Find a Job
Finding just any job can sometimes be a challenge, let alone finding the perfect job. That’s why job-hunters should use every tool at their disposal to find the perfect position. But what are the best tools for finding a job? Let’s open our job-hunter’s toolbox and see what tools you need for finding your dream position.
Bringing It All Together
There are job-search websites, and then there are sites that pull all of the listings from those sites and make them available in one place. Simply Hired is the latter variety. When you’re searching for a job, you want to make the most of your time. What makes more sense: Finding and visiting each of the myriad job sites out there, or getting all of their listings in one place? Work smarter, not harder.
Don’t neglect social networks. Your contacts on Facebook probably know you better than your other social connections, and they just might know of an opportunity tailor-made for you. Plus, you’ll already have a personal reference in the bag.
Because businesses have to pay job-placement websites for the candidates they refer, they may attempt to post openings on their own websites before sending them to placement agencies. If you have a list of businesses you’re interested in working for, check their websites for openings. There’s a chance that your ideal job will be right there, waiting for you to come along.
College Job Networks
Whether you’re still in school or have recently graduated, check to see if your alma mater has an employment network. Most of the positions posted there are likely to be entry-level, but you might find an opportunity to start climbing your career ladder.
