Find Job Opportunities

Locate Employment

There are several ways to find employment opportunities. A combination of approaches will often result in the most efficient job search.

Exclusive Job Listings are not accessible by the general public. Some employers prefer them because they get a more manageable and relevant response. 

Open-access Job Listings (newspapers & web sites) have thousands of active job postings but they are seen by more people so there is more competition. 

Resumé Posting allows you to post your resumé or skills/experience profile on a database which is searchable by employers. Some employers prefer this approach to find candidates rather than have hundreds respond to an ad. 

Networking is a lot more work than simply scanning posted jobs, but it is one of the most effective ways to get work... after all, three-quarters of jobs are never advertised and never posted. You need to locate potential employers and then use effective communication skills.
