Advice & tips to help you with your job search

Working with a Recruiter

Recruiters have access to roles with employers that sometimes never make it onto job boards. We call this the “hidden job market” and it’s one of the many benefits of working with a recruiter. A skilled recruiter can also provide job search advice, resume and interview tips, and more!

Networking might seem intimidating but reaching out to your connections for advice is an effective way to explore your career options, and often “who you know” will guide you towards your dream more than simply applying through job boards.

Resumes & Cover Letters

Your resume is the dynamite in your job search toolkit. Often supported by a well-crafted cover letter, the purpose of your resume is to sell you to a prospective employer and convince them to bring you to the next stage of the hiring process.

Social Media

Social media is a key part of job hunting and hiring. It allows job seekers to learn more about potential employers and vice versa. In some cases, social media sites also offer their own online job boards, such as LinkedIn Jobs and Facebook Jobs. As a candidate, you should be mindful about what you post on social media (what impression are you leaving for a potential employer?) but you should also think of social media as a powerful tool to help in your job search.
