Rock Your Job Hunt, Part I: Online

There are three main methods you can use to pursue job leads:

1. Search for online listings
2. Engage recruiters
3. Tap into your network

To maximize the number of well-fitted opportunities you can pursue, you need to utilize them all. Today, let’s focus on the first:

SEARCH FOR ONLINE LISTINGS

  • Identify which job boards make the most sense, given your goals. Start by running a simple Google search for your target job titles.

    For instance, the results for a “Marketing Manager jobs” search will lead to a number of relevant job boards including Indeed andTheLadders. Also search by your industry or specialty such as “pharmaceutical job boards”to identify niche boards.

  • Find online publications and membership associations related to your line of work. Join or subscribe to them them so you can access their employment sections where you may find some great opportunities.
  • Utilize social media sites like Twitter to find jobs. Simply search for a company you’re interested in by name, or search by “Jobs” or“Career” to see what pops up.

Before you apply to any job, first check in with your network. You might know someone who can help refer you to the hiring manager. If you do know someone, apply to the job online and have your contact drop off a hard copy of your resume and cover letter to whomever they know.
