Finding a new job can be a daunting task for many, especially as nowadays there seem to be more â€˜jobseekersâ€™ than there are jobs. You can be sure that for every job you find and apply for, dozens of other jobseekers have done the same. In order to find the job you want, and quickly, you need to stay one step ahead of the competition and stand out from the crowd.
Finding a job through your network is effective and enjoyable. The people you know are a great resource no matter what kind of job you are looking for, so donâ€™t hesitate to continue building your relationships. People will respond to your genuine interest in them, making them more likely to contact you if they become aware of a position.
Reports have shown that the increasing use of social media and internet resources is affecting the recruitment process, both from a job hunting perspective as well as a tool for employers to do background checks on potential candidates or even locate that perfect candidate for a replacement or to fill that newly created position.
