Great Places To Look For A Job
The below article was taken from Moneycrashers, written by Mark Riddix.
Full-time, permanent jobs may be disappearing but temporary jobs are on the rise. Job applicants looking for work should visit their local temp agency. Many temporary jobs often lead to full-time employment. Temporary jobs give a company the ability to audition a candidate for a few months and see if they are a good fit. The only negative to temp jobs is that they rarely offer benefits and the salary may be less than full-time employment.
Online Job Boards
Everyone knows about national online job sites like Careerbuilder, Monster, and Yahoo Hot Jobs. There are also some lesser known sites where you can search for jobs as well. Sites like Snagajob.com and Indeed.com offer jobs that often do not make it onto the big national job databases.
Also, don’t forget about your college or high schools. Sometimes they will have alumni job boards available to you where you may be going up against less competition.
You may have thought that social networks were just for having fun and catching up with old friends. Use social networks like LinkedIn and Facebook to network with other professionals in your career field. That’s why it’s so important not to have detrimental information about yourself on social networking sites. It may be time to take down that picture of yourself hung over at your best friend’s party! Landing a new job is often about who you know. It’s easier to get hired if you are recommended by a current employee. Sometimes you can be the most qualified candidate and the position will go to a friend of the boss.
In the current economic environment, finding a job is no easy task. It takes perseverance and finding the right match for your skills. Be sure to apply, apply, and apply more! The law of large numbers works in your favor. You can increase your chances of finding employment by sending out more resumes.
