Finding A Perfect Job: Where To Search

Finding A Perfect Job: Where To Search

Finding the perfect job takes time, patience and the right resources. The time it takes for you to find a job may vary depending on your industry, location and level of experience.

It might seem counterintuitive, but the more experienced you are, the longer it may take you to find a job, because employers may see you as overqualified. But there are some ways you can make the search more constructive.

Learn how to network

One of the most powerful things you can do when searching for jobs is actively networking. It can be awkward and, for people who aren’t naturally outgoing, requires a bit of courage, initiative and self-discipline.

  • Start with friends and people you know.
  • Find people who have similar jobs to the one you are seeking.
  • Force yourself out of your comfort zone.
  • Know that people genuinely enjoy your interest in them.

Searching Online Job Sites

Looking at online job boards is an efficient way to find opportunities.

  • Glassdoor: Glassdoor is known as a resource for researching a potential employer. 
  • LinkedIn: A “professional social network” where aside from job listings, you can potentially reach decision makers at the companies you wish to apply to.
  • SimplyHired: This site can flag job openings to you based on your location. 
  • Upwork: If you are looking for freelance gigs, there are a wealth of job opportunities on Upwork. 

You can find many other sites like Ladder and Indeed, based on your industry.

Join a professional network

Professional organizations can be a useful way to network with people in your industry and give you access to jobs that might not be widely found on the job boards we mentioned above. In addition, they can be a resource to learn which skills you should learn and how to do so.

Get an advocate and work with placement agencies

Agencies and recruiters can maximize your search potential by actively looking for work for you. Once they have familiarized themselves with your skills and experience, they can be an additional resource pounding the pavement to help you land your dream job.

Keep in mind agencies and recruiters will receive a fee from the employer for placing you, and companies only work with a preferred list of agencies and recruiters.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
