Get online: There are lots of online job boards such as Indeed or CV Library. These sites are super easy to navigate and is the go-to place for employers to advertise their vacancies. Gone are they days of newspaper and window ads. Jobs can be found by filtering locations, hours and job sectors.
Social Media: Just like everyone else we are all over social media! We post lots of our vacancies to our Facebook and Instagram pages. Make sure to go give us a follow for our latest updates and some cute office dog photos. LinkedIn profiles are also a great way to make connections within your specific industry. Creating a profile is free and is the equivalent to a professional Facebook page. Lots of fantastic roles are also advertised on the site.
Word of Mouth: Be more aware of what is happening around you. Networking is invaluable so don't be afraid to ask and to let people know you are looking.... it shows initiative and enthusiasm, and you just never know! It’s not always what you know, but who you know.
Happy Job Hunting!
