The first step towards finding employment will be to find job posting vacancies. Before doing this you need to consider how far you are willing to go to find work. If you are only looking to work in the local area then start looking for local postings. If, however, you are willing to relocate further afield, you will have a much wider spectrum to search through.
There are numerous different resources that you can take advantage of when looking for work. One would be to sign up with recruitment specialists. Consider industries that you want to work in and then spend time searching for recruitment agencies who provide staff for those industries. They will be in a very good position to find suitable work placements for you.
Find out where your local unemployment office is. Make an appointment and go and interview with them. They will work out what your skills and strengths are and what sort of work would be suitable for you depending upon these, as well as your level of education and working experience.
A third option would be to check out listings in some of the country’s top employers. This would be particularly helpful if you are willing to relocate. Depending upon where you live, local job postings for some of the top employers may not be available. However, spend time searching around and particular focus on areas that you are interested in and that would be relevant to your skills, expenses, and education.
Consider some of the fastest growing industries in the country. One way of doing this would be by looking at the Forbes 500. They will cite some of the industries that are growing quickly and recruiting heavily. Any particular industry or company that is going through a heavy recruitment drive may be a good option.
Check job postings both in the newspapers. You can also do this on the Internet. Again, if you are looking to relocate then you can check newspapers within other cities, states, and national newspapers as well.
Call upon any local contacts that you have. If you have any contacts in any particular industry then you might want to get in touch with them. Perhaps they could help you get a foot in the door, or at the very least provide you with some invaluable advice. Talk to local family, friends, colleagues, and other associates as part of your search for job vacancies.
