Job Search Advice

By: Kelly Liyakasa


Finding a new career in today's fast-paced world isn't as easy as it looks. Though online job search engines are incredibly popular, sometimes it's hard to know where to look or what to look for! One underlying issue of concern for job seekers is the vast number of applicants sent in each minute, every day.

No one has to wait for the Sunday classifieds section anymore in order to find the newest jobs...and an applicant on the East Coast may face competition from around the globe. When beginning your job search, consider the following hints to make your experience successful.

&bull Sign up for a site such as Careerbuilder's job newsletter-you'll receive access to newly posted jobs daily.

&bull In a job search box, enter in as many keywords as you can. If you're looking for a marketing position, why not add 'advertising' and 'sales' to increase your search results?

&bull Check on the weekends: many job sites continuously post new openings-even on the weekends.

&bull If a job site allows you to post your resume, be sure to take advantage of it. This will increase your chances an employer will gloss by it.

&bull If you receive correspondence from a potential employer by email, follow it up with a thank you note.

There is no real science behind landing a new job. It may be a matter of timing or even luck, in some instances. Utilizing the best job search engines such as Monster and Careerbuilder allow you to better your chances of finding a great career.

6Star Reviews reports that Monster even gives you access to a career advice center and job-saturated marketplace. You have a great chance of finding your dream job on the Net, if you're willing to put in the work.
