Is it still worth registering with a recruitment agency and waiting for them to find us a job or use online job boards and customize our job search to our own needs?May 13, 2013 at 2:53 pm #35925
I’d go for job boards. That way, the search is in your hands and you can find exactly (or close to) what you want. Plus, you’re not relying on someone else and can monitor the whole process (in regards to approaching and liaising with the potential employer over your application/interview process).
It’s a little time consuming, and sometims mind-numbing sitting in front of a computer doing search after search, but at least you can search for what you want. Register with the bigger job boards (like Monster, Fish4Jobs, CV-Library – but there are loads of others). They’re free and have a combination of hundreds of thousands of jobs listed on them. You’re bound to find something!
Plus, I think on all them you can upload your CV for free and have it found by employers (who will run key word searches, just like you do for a job). It’s pretty neat, plus it’s free and leaves you open to the possibility of being head hunted!
Hope that helps 🙂May 13, 2013 at 3:22 pm #35926
I think it depends on the circumstances, if you are unemployed then I would suggest definatly registering with agencies as you will be able to show the Job Centre you have done so. Also, keep looking online regardless of your current employment statusMay 19, 2013 at 11:50 am #35927
I would use every possible means to get a job. Therefore I would contact relevant agencies to the industry that I was looking to get in to. I would also search online for the type of job that I wanted. There may be trade journal or newspapers that jobs are advertised in for the industry you want to work in, so look at those as well. Lastly I would also check at the local job centre and see what they had available.
It is worth remembering that different jobs are advertised in different places and so if you do not look in a lot of wayts for jobs, then you may never find one.July 12, 2013 at 11:52 am #35928
I would suggest making use of leading search engines like Google and looking for online job boards and agencies for a particular field or specialization. These job boards will provide a list of available job openings in various companies in a chosen industry.
