Remember the days of circling job ads in the paper? Seems like a thing of the past these days with companies and job seekers alike moving online and utilising social media to find ‘the perfect fit’.

In an ongoing series by iiNet Recruiters we give you all the inside tips like how to:

  • find your dream job,
  • present yourself online,
  • submit your best application,
  • excel in the job interview and more!

So let’s take a look at how you can find your dream job.

Search smart

Start with the source. Have a look at the websites of companies you’d love to work for and check out their jobs or career section. We post all our current vacancies on our Careers Website.

Go mobile

By downloading job searching apps you can search, shortlist and in some cases even apply for jobs anywhere, anytime.

In this digital age the hunt for jobs doesn’t need to happen at home on your PC. It could happen while shopping or even sitting in a park. Some of our favourite freebies to check out are Seek, LinkedIn (iOS and Android), MyCareer Jobs, and CareerOne.

Alert yourself

Setting up email alerts are a great idea to keep tabs on your industry, your dream employer and more. There are definitely perks to having access to endless amounts of data on the Internet, but it can become overwhelming to sift through all of that information efficiently.

Many job boards like Seek, LinkedIn and MyCareer will take the hard work out of job seeking and email you roles that fit your specified criteria.

Do your homework

Once you’ve found a job you’d like to apply for, it’s time to roll up your sleeves and do your homework.

Research companies of interest and take the time to know what they are about. Find out what they do, follow their social-media pages, and understand their industry and competitors. You need to be prepared to tell your potential employer why you’re excited to work for their company specifically.
