Searching for work

 

Finding a job

Job vacancies can be advertised in a variety of ways - newspapers, signs in shop windows, job search websites, company websites, recruitment agencies and even through the grapevine.​
 

Top 5 Tips for using online job search websites​ 


 
​1. Set up an email account. Keep it professional, no silly names like ‘cheekychappy@hotmail.com’.
 
2. Use alternative search terms to broaden or target your search (e.g. “manager”, “sales manager”, “hotel manager”).
 
3. Keep your CV up-to-date. Remember to tailor your CV or application form​ for specific job opportunities.
 
4. Check for spelling mistakes.
 
5. Even if you are applying online you can still contact the prospective employer by phone or email for further information or to clarify specific points.
