Remember to keep active online and make as many contacts as possible, particularly in the sectors that you are already in, or wishing to enter.
A great way to access unadvertised job vacancies is to use your personal network of friends, family, acquaintances and colleagues. Many businesses offer rewards to those members of staff that can recommend and introduce a new employee and it’s likely that at least one of your friends will know of a vacancy going somewhere. You may also be able to get ahead of the curve as employees usually know about opportunities before they are advertised online. Put out a message on Facebook, dig into your phone book and ask around to ensure people know that you’re looking for a new job.
Finally, it’s often a good idea to contact employers directly. Not only is advertising a vacant position usually a time-consuming process that most businesses would rather avoid, it’s also expensive. If you contact employers directly and you have a little luck with your timing, you may find that you hit on a vacancy before it’s advertised. This is often a great way to find a new job as recruiters are keen to find the right candidate without having to go through the entire advertising process.
