How do you look for jobs?

Posted by austenfan at 1/09/2011 11:14:00 AM
Do you look at several newspapers, hoping that there are job advertisements with requirements that match your qualifications there? Do you use job search engines online? Or do you go to job fairs and hand out copies of your resume there?

I'm not sure, but I think the second option is the most effective one to use in today's world. With today's technology, you need not go personally to every company there is out there to ask if they have vacant positions that might be a fit for you. Looking for jobs in the internet is definitely faster and easier. If you want to look for an engineering job, you can just type "jobs engineering" or if you want to look for jobs that involve retail, you can search for the term jobs retail. That way, you don't have to spend effort and money in personally visiting companies in the hopes that they might have some job openings.

I'm not completely advising people to stop personally going to the companies, though. Sometimes (or maybe even most of the time), walk in applications are still effective in getting you that job that you want. It's not like every company chooses to advertise their openings online, after all. :)
