Look for Work

“What’s the best way to find a job?”


There is no best way to look for a job. It’s a good idea to use a number of different approaches 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. Your next job might be one that isn’t even advertised.
