J is for Job Searching Online

Searching for a new job is a daunting process, whether you are unemployed or not. Online applications have made finding a job both easier and harder simultaneously. An online job search may land you a job you may not have gone for originally, but your application could be lost in a sea of many.

There is no simple or one way to land the job of your dreams. But there are many ways to land a good job through searching online. Below are a few tips to help you with this process.


Reaching out to friends and old colleagues may seem antiquated. But it actually still works! Many people feel more comfortable with someone they know, rather than a faceless resume. Also, you may find opportunities that aren’t open to the public yet.

Refine Your Resume

Update your resume to fit specific keywords for the job you are applying for. It is important to stay truthful to your work experience and skill set when doing this. But, many companies will simply search for certain qualifications and not even check the rest. Make sure your resume is compatible with what they are looking for!

Update Your Social Media

A good looking LinkedIn profile could land you some job opportunities you weren’t expecting. Some companies look on this and other social media sites to find suitable candidates to interview. Make sure your profile is up to date and looking professional. You can also use this tool to reach out to companies.

Follow Up

As many job searches are becoming less and less personal, it could give you a leg up to get personal. If you receive an inquiry call or interview, don’t hesitate to follow up. Many interviewers have a lot on their plate, including their current workload, and many new applicants to consider. Things could take a while, but showing initiative is never a bad thing.

Going on a job search online can be tricky. But it doesn’t have to be. Follow these tips and look for others on sites like Indeed.com in order to help you land the job of your dreams.
