The internet is very useful. Use it right and you shall gain the benefit.
How to make use of the internet to land a job? This is a very popular question. How many of you have a Facebook account? What about Twitter?
You can find a job with many methods. Social networking is just one of them.
Let us have a look at what you can gain from the internet.
You sign up, update your personal information, upload an image and add some friends. What else? If you add the right person, you might find that occasionally there is a job ad coming up on your “Home” page. Someone might just tag you so that you can view the job ad on your “Wall”. Sometimes, if you put up a status such as “I am looking for a job”, someone might just recommend you to a job ad they have come across. What a unique way to find a job.
Twitter is similar to Facebook except you “follow” people. For example, follow me on @writingc and you will be able to keep up with the latest updates from my site. So if you are following a job site on Twitter, you will get the latest updates on the most recent job ads added to the site.
3. Linked In
Linked In is a career-oriented social networking site. There is a section that allows you to find a job. You can find your clients on Linked In, network with them and request for recommendations.
Use the search engine to find a job. This is a common trick and yet not everyone knows how to do it.
Just type in something like “job vacancies” and you get more than a million of results.
Google is also good for researching. If you want to work with ABC Sdn Bhd, be sure to research the background of ABC Sdn Bhd and find out as much as possible about the company. It would be helpful during your interview.
5. Free emails – Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail
When you are using free emails to apply for a job, be sure to sign up for a proper email address. A proper email address indicates professionalism.
