Your Job Search
Job boards online
The internet has made a search for jobs quicker, easier and a lot wider. To speed up your search and make it as efficient as possible, it is important to be as targeted and specific as possible. Checking the deadline is important too and will avoid time-wasting. If you’re not sure that the vacancy still exists, email the employer or phone the company to check.

There are many job sites to choose from. Here are some that I recommend:

Be choosy about recruitment agencies. The ones I recommend are listed below. There are also lots of good job boards online and I recommend setting up text or email (or both!) alerts so that you get a message as soon as one is posted that suits you. If you don’t have access to the internet try your local library, it’s usually free.
