Job search sites can save you time during your work search because they search only for jobs.
These sites scan job-related websites, job boards and employer sites for jobs by the category and location you choose. It then links you directly to the employer’s or recruiter’s website.
Because general search sites (like Google or Bing) scan widely across the internet to find any item that includes your search term, search results often return information that isn’t relevant to your work search. Sorting through this information takes time.
Employers often advertise jobs to find the right employee quickly. The job ad may ask for different things. For example:
- The ad may ask you to call the company.
- The ad may ask you to email the company.
- The ad may ask if you are bondable.
- The ad may ask for a current criminal record check.
- The ad may ask for a cover letter and resume.
- The ad may ask you to come in or go to their website and fill out an application form.
Companies post job ads in lots of places. You should think carefully about where you will look for job ads, and it's is a good idea to make a work search plan.
