5 effective job search channels
Using the correct channels is imperative to finding your ideal job. Although the job search process can often be long winded, there are so many means of expediting the process, helping you make better use of your time
- Job Boards
Companies and recruitment agencies often use varying terminology regarding job titles despite roles and responsibilities remaining almost exact. For this reason, it’s important to create a list of keywords and phrases of skills related to the type of job you are looking to apply for. This will provide you with maximum exposure to all advertised job roles in your field and will give you the potential to discover new roles that you may normally not have necessarily searched for
- Social Media
As of 2022, at least 84% of organisations use social media for recruitment, with the remaining 6% exploring the idea of it. LinkedIn is one of the most unique social platforms out there for recruiting with its sole purpose being centred around professional networking. Create a strong and informative LinkedIn profile and stay active by connecting with others and interacting with their content. Recruitment agencies may often find you through having a good quality profile
- Reach out directly to the company
So, you’ve found a role that you think you’d be a perfect fit for, so of course you’re going to apply. But don’t just leave it there. If you’re really interested in a particular role or company, reach out to them, and tell them why you’d make the perfect candidate. This is one way to really stand out from the competition.
In a post pandemic world, we have seen a huge shift towards online activity and networking is no different. Joining online groups and forums as well as online events and webinars is a great way to chat with like-minded professionals, share knowledge and build a contact based.
- Partner with a recruitment agency
Joining forces with a specialist recruiter is the easiest way to begin your job search. Research recruitment agencies that are local or that recruit nationwide, submit your CV to their website and give them a call to discuss your requirements and skillset with a specialist who will know the ins and outs of your industry.
