So you’ve finished uni and you want to start job-hunting. First things first, you create a top CV. But where do you look for jobs?
With many job sites out there, you might be confused as to which ones to use. Here are our top 8 for you.
Indeed is a leading job site with millions of job listings from thousands of websites including job boards, company career sites, newspapers and other online sourcess. Users can upload a CV and search using location, when the job was posted and by what company. You can also research salaries, job trends and receive email alerts of different types of jobs, which also specify if you can “easily apply for the job”. This meants that you only have to apply on Indeed and the job ad won’t take you to a third party website to complete an application form.
LinkedIn is a useful social media site that connects the world’s professionals. It’s the world’s largest professional network and is fantastic for networking. You can search for jobs, identify contacts at employers who are advertising vacancies and follow companies, so it’s also very good for job-hunting. Employers can even contact you if your profile’s strong enough.
