The Best Ways to Search for a Job

Here are a few tips to help you with your job search and help you and find that dream job!
  • Check your network - many people get jobs through friends and friends of friends. Who do YOU know?
  • Set up job alerts - trawling through websites can be exhausting. Get the websites to send you jobs when one you're interested in is advertised
  • Sign up to an agency - if you're looking for a job in the construction industry, what are you waiting for?? Pick up the phone and give us a call! For everyone else, sign up to a few agencies but make sure you can spot the good ones from the time-wasters. Here's what to pay attention to: 7 Things to Look for in a Recruitment Agency
  • Check out the websites of places you'd love to work. If they're not advertising any roles, why not send them a CV and covering letter anyway - you've got nothing to lose!
  • Keep a record - don't lose track of what you've applied for. You don't want to sound clueless when an employer calls and you've forgotten who they are!
