The Best Job Searching Methods
Everyone’s dream is to have a good job. There are various ways to find a job, although it may seem us easy to find a job, on the other hand there is great competition about accept top position even ordinary positions. Therefore, effective ways of job search would be wise to try. Internet seems to best method to find a job, but what it really or direct application seems immensely troublesome, is it correct? In my view internet, networking and direct application are the most effective job searching methods.
Internet is a tool that is extremely useful and functional when it used effective and correctly. Internet is a wide network what spans the world. It contains a lot of recruitment agencies, cooperation websites, association sites, newsletters and freelance job options and in the present day access to internet very easily. This also provides an opportunity to become an influential job search engine. According to the article “Job Search Methods” people who looks for a job, find job about 43% are using the internet. (2008,p.1) It was established a lot of websites in order to bring together job seekers with employers such as secretcv.com, monster.com. All over the world recruitment agencies are accepted by companies and employers. Nowadays, most of company advertise only this websites, and choose their workers by means of who appealed this websites with their CV. Especially large companies are not allow direct application for many positions.
Another effective job searching method is networking. Communication and relations constitute the basis of the network because many jobs are never advertised. Networking also contains not only business networking websites but also friendships, exhibitions, shows, seminars, training. Primarily, let’s consider business networking websites such as linekedin.com, bni.com. Their purpose is create a platform where professionals from all kinds of different industries can meet up, find jobs, colleagues, new assignments, cooperation partners, experts and generate business ideas. With more people getting online now, business networking sites are attracting a great deal of attention for their role in buttressing professional relationships and facilitating new connections. Secondly, some companies organize seminars thus they explain about their business and accept graduated or students who suitable in order to their business. In this way more and more people are employed. Based on the article “The Best Job Search Techniques” Networking is on the success of 50% regarded as the best job search method.” (2011, p.2) I believe that networking is a giant world in its own right.
The third effective job searching method is direct application. This method is a little hard besides the other methods due to it requires to communicate the decision maker. Curriculum vitae and a letter are sent to the decision maker. Probably this method will be fewer competitors thus it increases the chance of being accepted to work. If the application is done correctly for the appropriate position, success rate will soar. Decision makers usually consider the references and experience unless there is something different. My opinion is that this method is very effective because it is directed target-oriented.
As a result there are many job searching methods; some of them are more effective than the others. The important thing is at the right time to make the correct application. Fowler states: “There are a variety of methods available for finding job opportunities, all with their own strengths and weaknesses, so don’t be shy to experiment with a variety of techniques.” (2011,p.3) As far as I am concerned, internet really is a great blessing a lot of issues, also job searching so this is why I find useful to use the internet primarily.
