Steps to finding your dream job

Once you have decided to enter the job market, looking for that perfect dream job can be a formidable task, with endless searching and applications. However, we are here to assist you with this daunting task!

Start by building your online brand on career portals by showcasing your expertise and passion online. Most recruiters use career portals as our primary search engine for future candidates. Use these portals as a resource for finding people working at companies that interest you and for positioning yourself to be found by recruiters and hiring managers with relevant openings.

Nevertheless, do not just limit yourself to online searching. If you rely only on submitting online applications, you could be looking for a job for an awfully long time. It might be that by the time you submit your application, the company is in the final interview stage or the position has been filled. Contact companies that interest you directly or get in touch with a recruitment agency! We are here to help you with this search and could possibly know just the right people to get your foot in the door.

Another important tool that can aid you in the task of finding your dream job is Networking. After creating your profile on networking sites, start using them. Connect with everyone you know, because you never know which contact may be able to help you with your job search or put you in touch with someone who can. If you know someone working at a company that interests you, don’t be afraid to ask for a referral. If you are a graduate, check out the networking opportunities available for alumni from your university.

Happy job hunting!
