10 Reasons Why You Should Try Online Job Searching

The internet and the consequent advancement in technology have led to a significant change in the job market. If you are looking for another job, a better job or perhaps even your first job, then you definitely should search online. This will not only make your job search faster, but it will also widen your scope in terms of opportunities that match your skills and the different parts of the world that you can work in.

Online job search will expose you to recruiter services that may influence you to end up changing your career path for your own good. It is also very possible that you will be able to interact with other professionals in your field or even end up setting up your own business.

Here are top 10 reasons;

  1. Searching online, you are likely to find a better location or greater opportunities. There are many online sites that will direct you to jobs within your profession. Recruiters are very great at getting you employment opportunities.
  2. While on your online job search, you can choose to be part of a professional association. This is very advantageous as it allows you to network with other professionals and this is a great avenue through which you can land yourself a better job.
  3. It is very easy to locate employers and jobs online. There are many online job sites that advertise employment opportunities. If you manage to be in touch with a recruiter, then you can rest assured of being linked up with an employer.
  4. If you register yourself on employment sites you will be constantly updated on possible jobs via email. Many of these sites will send out your resume to many recruiters all around the world who will try to get you employed.
  5. If you search and apply for a job online, you are always sure that your application is delivered to the right place. You need not worry about your application getting lost in the courier or post.
  6. Online job searching enables you to store soft copies of your cover letter and resume for future use. This way, you are able to keep track of your applications and not applying twice for a particular job.
  7. It enables you to cut costs of courier, postage and faxes. All you need to do is find the correct recruiter services.
  8. It enables you to get information about the companies and employees that will be very useful to you during interviews. Recruiters know their companies well and they can help you find out the necessary information beforehand.
  9. It saves you time. Recruiters have direct connections with hiring managers of different companies. Instead of you visiting  3 companies in one week, that may not even hire you, just get a recruiter who will send your resume to 20 companies  in a day, that  are likely to hire you.
  10. Online job search will make have you have less intense interviews than usual. Companies work with recruiters and they disclose to them what kind of person they would like to hire. It is therefore the recruiter who does most of the filtering and by the time you are called for the interview, it is less intense.

    I keep hearing people say that online submissions are a waste of time, but both my sister and I got great jobs at (different) top companies through online applications. The difference may be that for both of us, our strategy was to completely customize every application, resume and cover letter after doing tons of research on the company. So, I wouldn't rule it out *if* the job is something that seems like a great fit *and* you're willing to really work to get the job.

    I work in HR for a mid-size nonprofit. We specifically ask candidates to apply online and prefer to work through our online hiring system. resumes that are mailed in are not necessarily ignored but it is seen as not following our directions which isn't a great first step. I'm not saying this is true at every company but I just feel that assuming a mailed in resume will automatically be received better isn't always the case.

    I became unemployed around the holidays and decided to apply online to numerous companies via LinkedIn and jobstreet. I found out that companies are looking for you online if your profile matches their preferences. You just have to be confident in yourself and let people know that you're good at what you do.
