Harness The Power Of The Internet for Your Job Search
“World Wide Web” with its appearance greatly facilitated the process of job seeking. However, on the other hand, it has complicated it: in fact, there are a lot of different job search websites and “hanging” on them takes a lot of time. This means that the search operation should use the most effective tools. It is important not to miss anything, to be able to harness the power of the Internet to the fullest.
So, how to find a job using the “World Wide Web”?
Let’s list all the major channels of job search via the Internet.
1 Sites of work. There are both general and specialized (sites with vacancies within the industry, the career site for young professionals, etc.). On some job sites the contacts of employers are in a public domain. However, most sites on employment do not have this possibility: you can only respond to the job ad through submitting your resume on this site (but not in the “Word”, just filling in the template). Employers can also invite you for an interview themselves, finding your resume on the work site through a keyword search.
Some sites publish the “original” job vacancies, while others (the so-called “aggregators of vacancies”) collect ads from the employers and recruitment agencies with a variety of other employment sites, simplifying your task of finding work. You are able to find more on Jobtonic about CNA jobs or other jobs available.
It is not necessary to use all the job-sites that you have found: 2-3 leading job sites may be sufficient to find job in a big city.
2 Sites of publications that publish jobs. These publications can be either specialized (i.e., intended for job search) and mainstream (i.e., when the publication include news and articles on various subjects, and job employers and recruitment agencies just publish vacancies along with other announcements and advertisements, or the vacancies are collected in a separate section dedicated to the job search). These can be newspapers and magazines. Typically, they are paid and appear once a week. As a rule, in special editions there is the opportunity to publish your mini-resume. Unfortunately, not all the editions of the vacancies have sites to publish jobs there. But, fortunately, very much of the periodicals have them. A number of publications offers an opportunity not only to see the job, but to “flip through” the edition by e-services, i.e., to watch ads with vacancies “LIVE”.
It should also be borne in mind that not always the electronic version of the publication with vacancies can completely replace original paper. The fact is that not all the sites duplicate all the jobs in the “paper” newspaper (and vice versa).
3 Forums about work. You can also look for a job on specialized forums. Such forums can also be found in the list of websites. For a job search at this platforms, employers and recruitment agencies post their vacancies directly and job seekers offer their services there too. In addition to this, job can be published just on the forums on various subjects. For example, it may be a section on work on any forum bringing together specialists from a particular profession.
Forums are a good source because there can be published jobs not found in other sources. In addition, there is an opportunity to communicate directly with the HR-managers.
Here we offered you the main sources for your job search. So, choose the specialized sites, such as JobTonic.com, or non-specialized periodicals to start your searching for a suitable position in your city.
