An Easier Way to Find Local Jobs


Visitors: 269

Is the jobs section of your local newspaper paper shrinking? Don't be duped into thinking the jobs are not out there! When did you last look online? Perhaps you have been on a national jobsite and been frustrated at the piles of jobs you had to wade through to find something close to you.

It seems a growing trend in the online job searching maketplace is the emergence of the local/regional job board. More and more national and local companies are realising the benefits of attracting candidates on the net and where better to do this than on a local job board dedicated to the local community? If you are struggling to find the ideal job, why not type “jobs in yourtownname" into Google and see what appears.

Most local job searching sites will allow you to search for vacancies based on a mixture of criteria, usually based on your preferred job categories and salary range. To save time, you can often set up jobs alerts. This feature enables you to enter your criteria one time and the website will then automatically send you details of matching new jobs every day by email. You can usually cancel these subscriptions by clicking a link on the email once you have found your perfect job. When searching job sites, bear in mind that recruitment agencies advertise a high percentage of the vacancies.

You may wish to look at the A-Z of recruiters - something you often find on job sites - which will help you to spot any local employers or top companies you may wish to apply to. You can usually click a link straight from the company profile page view that employer's jobs. Before registering on a local job site, make sure your CV is up to date and that you have thought carefully about what kind of vacancies you want to target. Once you have added your details you are likely to start receiving phone calls from recruiters and employers and it can be a waste of time and effort for everyone if you set your criteria too broadly. To ensure your CV is correctly formatted, it is worth getting some quality advice. You will usually find a “Career Centre" on local job sites which may contain CV writing advice and interview success tips. The CV advice tends to be pretty standard and is worth paying attention to.

After all, you never get a second chance to make that first impression! There might be a local jobsite right on your doorstep that you didn't even know about. Why not start searching now and see what awaits you. Good luck!
