How and where to find a job online

Sunday, July 15, 2012

Unemployment rates are growing so fast in many countries and there are major concerns in countries that I could not imagine could experience high unemployment rates like Europe, even by 2011, Economy Watch reported that high unemployment may dog the US for years.
The course of such rise in unemployment rates is rather as I have examined increased computerization of major companies and mechanization of the production sectors of the various economies. This has with high rates led to many people being laid off. Currently, most people are reverting to soliciting for jobs that are either done online or done at home convenience, or in some case have ceased to physically approach companies and have instead diverted efforts to looking for jobs in the internet for which I would want to facilitate today.


Finding jobs online is easy, but all the same tricky. One way of finding job opportunities online is through the many online Job Boards in the internet cyberspace where millions of jobs are posted daily and I think a few people manage to grasp them since it is when people are beginning some serious drive towards such opportunities.


Different Job Boards handle different categories of job opportunities that may include technology jobs, health, office, customer support, online management jobs, e.t.c. I will in this post help you locate easily some pf the most prominent job boards on the internet and I will have to giver references to resources from various sites from which I have gathered the information.


In addition to online job boards, social sites such ad LinkedIn, which is a Professionals socializing site can easily help you out finding jobs. Generally social sites are growing in job opportunities. LinkedIn is the most popular site for recruiters by far, as the data below reveals. 
According to a 2010 survey by JobVite.com, which provides recruiting tools for many large and small employers, the use of social media for recruiting has been expanding, and the trend is expected to continue:
  • 92% of employers planned to leverage the social networks for recruiting, with LinkedIn leading the pack and obviously the majority using more than one of the social networks:
    • 86% are using LinkedIn
    • 60% are using Facebook
    • 50% are using Twitter
  • 50% plan to increase spending on social networks for recruiting (and social networks are, at least currently, much cheaper than job boards).
  • 36% of employers will spend less on job boards.

  • You will also consider signing up for new job alerts to notice you of any jobs in the offing via email or news readers.

I have have heard many sites mentioning Craigslist as the pioneer of jobs Boards, but I ain't certain about that. All I am sure about is that it is among the top for job searches. Basically it s not only about job listings but allso about many other things from housing to personals. 


      Tips

  • There is a resume posting section that is crawled by many search engines so it would be of importance to have your resume bare the most relevant search keywords.
  • In all your online job searching expedition it is important to give a gateway to any interested employer to contact you,NOTE THAT.

Just as I said befoe this is a resourseful job finding domain.
      How to Find a job in LinkedIn.
  •  Posing your bio and searching the job listing would be your first step to know various openings that are available.
  • When describing your profile, resume and about, you should use various targeted keywords and search oriented terms. Employers search LinkedIn either directly of indirectly using search engines to find the most appropriate potential employees.
  • As you very well know LinkedIn is used to connect to workmates, Alumni, college mates and probably pas work associates. You may be able to use these links to give you give aways and gateways to open jobs. 
  • Joining various professional groups is another way of letting yourself known and your skills noted by continuously contributing to discussions and exposing your talent and ability in your area of specialization.
