When you are looking for a really good job doesn’t it seem like job hunting requires effort, time and knowledge?
In regards to making your job hunting easier, if not stress free, then take a look at the following job search tips:
1. When you start, you should know what type of job that you want to apply to. If you attend a job fair, look at what companies are going to be there and determine if the position you are looking for would be offered by that type of company.
Take into consideration where you want to work, what your interest’s area and the types of shifts being offered by a company (as there may be scheduling conflicts if you have kids). So as you look at a job opening, make sure the position being offered is a good fit for you first, before applying.
2. Put together a career portfolio or a resume and gather any other documents you may need like educational transcripts, licenses, ect. Make several copies of your resume and all other documents that may be required.
3. Make a list of where to search for job openings. There are many place one can go to to find job listing and companies that are hiring. Below is a list of where to begin.
The internet, of course! It’s the first place where most job seekers begin. So..Why not start your job search here at JobCab.com Go to the homepage and click the link for our job search engine. It displays very relevant results showing latest openings and targeting by location.
Newspapers where the way to go back in the day, not so much now as job search engines can pull job opening data from so many sources and organize the results into one organized page.
However with newspapers, especially local ones in smaller cities or towns, could display job listings that may not be available online. Also, the job listing would be local to the community .
While you are job hunting online I would like to make you aware that job vacancies can be viewed locally or even nationally. This would give a job seeker more option to view more listings in choosing the job best for them.
4. In local communities, but not all may be Job / Career Centers for youth. Typically kids around 16 to 18 years of age can check for jobs with these types of organizations. Vacancies and open positions for work may be listed there.
Regular visits may be necessary as the listing might be updated frequently in order to see new listings.
5. Magazines and periodicals. This would be best suited for professionals who may read industry magazines and there is the potential for recruiters, head hunters and hiring companies to place a job posting there.
These days hiring is becoming more competitive and expensive for companies, so when someone just walks into their office (without being referred or paying for a job posting) should be very welcoming to you.
Again I recommend that you start your job search on this website, you will be amazing at how easy it to find what you are looking for.
