Places to Conduct a Job Search

Posted: Updated:

So where to begin your job search? I assure you, many companies are itching to hire new graduates and here's how to find them.

Online job sites

You can find millions of job listings through online job sites such as job boards, company career sites, newspapers, associations, etc. Job search engines like SimplyHired.com allow you to search all of those online job sites in one place.

Just enter keywords describing your dream job into the search box, the location you'd like to work into the Location field, and hit the Search button. The results page will display all jobs on the Web that match your query.

Social Networking Sites

Social networks allow you to tap into your contacts and can be an effective way to job search. Most employers promote referral hiring, so if someone you know (your future Noble Prize winning friend, say) can refer you to an open position at his or her company, your chances of getting your resume into the hands of the hiring manager increases dramatically.

Plus, by contacting people you know directly, you may find out about job openings before they're publicly advertised.

SimplyHired.com has some cool features that let you take advantage of your social networks in your job search.

Who Do I Know® feature– If you find a great job on SimplyHired.com , you can use this feature to see if you know anyone who currently works at that company, and enlist their help to get you an interview.

Integration with Facebook

Often, your Facebook friends are the people who you have the closest connection with and would be the most willing to help in your job search. Our integration with Facebook can help you identify where your friends work so that you can ask them to recommend you for jobs at their companies.

College Career Center

As a graduate, you can use your alma mater's career center as a source of jobs and career advice. Many college career centers are privy to job listings from the companies of some alumni and others have on-campus interviewing programs for employers, so you can line up a job without leaving campus.

Use these places to your advantage in your job search for the best possibility of success!
