Get ahead in your job search with a few helpful tips.
Many job seekers grow frustrated with their job search after completing countless applications online and never hearing back. However, the problem often isn’t the online job search itself, but the way in which job seekers are conducting their search. In their 2019 Job Seeker Nation Survey, Jobvite found that most applicants apply for jobs through an employer career site or an online job board. However, what led them to those websites? Thirty-five percent found job postings on social media, 37% learned about their jobs from professional networks, and 50% heard about jobs from friends.
The key is to network first and then apply. Job seekers need to maximize their online job search by following a few key steps.
