The essential tools you need to find a job in 21st Century.
Our world is fast developing and even those who live in countries called developed country can not deny the fact that they are experiencing more rapid development than they have ever seen in the past.
- Social network
The social network is the new age of communication and almost every human being who has access to the internet belong to one social network or the other, which is why it has become a key player in business and communication because money can be made anywhere there is population. Therefore, business owners both small and large scale are moving in to tap into the hidden wealth of the social network.
As a smart job hunter it is important that you lay your trap in the walkway of the large crowd by joining discussions in various groups and stay on the lookout for the pages of your prey because the companies have rebranded their mode of recruitment and you also have to do same and there is no better way than to follow every single update they release which is only possible through social network.
List of social networks for job hunting:
- Google plus
The above-listed networks are the leading social networks for job hunting. Although Facebook appears to be more popular but LinkedIn has more professional organisations listing their job openings than Facebook.
- Forums/ groups
Just like social network, belonging to forums and groups with like-minded people can be a very good way to find your desired job.
As a member of a group or forum, don’t just be an observer rather try to be as active as possible and contribute to other people’s issues and use your signature wisely by adding your area of specialisation because you never can tell when you get that call that will make the difference.
- Print medias (newspaper, magazine, etc)
Although the print media seems to be getting less attention these days but that doesn’t mean it’s no longer a tool for getting your desired job because some companies and government agencies still publish vacancies in newspapers and various print medias.
Outside the above options, you can subscribe to job publishing websites like jobberman, jobrapido, job niche blogs and your desired company/ organisation feeds and newsletters. Thanks for reading.
