Question
Look for Work

“What’s the best way to find a job?”

Answer

There is no best way to look for a job. It’s a good idea to use a number of different approaches in order to increase your chances of finding a job. 

You might want to start by networking with your friends, neighbours and other personal contacts to find out if they know of any job opportunities.

Watch for online and print job postings in newspapers, trade magazines, job search websites or company websites.  

And don’t be afraid to try the direct approach—stop by the companies you want to work for with your resumé and ask to speak to the person in charge of hiring.
