3_Effective_Ways_to_Job_Search.jpgGone are the days of searching for a job solely through newspaper classifieds. There are many different ways to job search in today’s world. Liberty Staffing Services would like to provide you with some tips and tools when it comes to job hunting. Here are a few different ways that you can job search.

1. Use Social Media

You may believe that social media is only used for personal purposes, but social media can actually be a great tool to use when searching for a job. Many companies actively use social media to promote their business. Therefore, it would come as no surprise that companies use these platforms to advertise their internal job opportunities.

2. Network with Immediate Contacts

Prior to the internet and classifieds, candidates looked for jobs through their immediate connections. While word of mouth is a very basic and old-fashioned way to search for a job, networking like this can prove to be effective. It’s always a good idea to ask anyone you know if they are hiring. This keeps your options open and lets others around you know that you are actively seeking employment.

3. Search Company Websites

Do you have a company in mind that you would like to work for? If so, look up the company online and visit their website. Many companies post internal job advertisements on their website. This also saves the hassle of phoning a company and inquiring to see if they are hiring.

4. Attend Job Fairs

Job fairs are a great way to meet potential employers and find work. Search for any upcoming job fairs in your area online or in the newspaper. Job fairs are the perfect opportunity to get your name and resume out there.

5. Use a Staffing Agency

Tired of the hassle of job searching? Searching for a job on your own can be time consuming and frustrating. Use a staffing agency to find work. Staffing agencies will work on your behalf to find a job for you. They also have hidden networks and job opportunities, making your chances of landing the job easier.
