Online Job Hunting

by Mickey Mixon

 

There was a time when a person who wanted to find work had to buy newspaper and look through the classified ads section.  The advent of the internet has changed that by creating opportunities for people to work either in a different state or in another country.

 

It has made the world a smaller place rendering it accessible for anyone with a computer to search for a job and apply to it.

 

There are many sites that offer such services, such as monster.com, career.net, etc. All the person has to do is open an account, fill up the necessary fields then submit your resume.

 

These sites usually ask for pertinent information such as the person’s name, age, address, contact number and social security number.

 

Additional information that will be requested is educational background. Employment history is also another thing that has to be mentioned which includes the job description and highlights that one has experienced during that person’s career.  A section in the account will also ask the preferred industry of work, if the person is willing to do field work or open to relocation and the expected salary should one be accepted for the job.

 

With all the information provided, these sites will then match your qualifications with the jobs available.  This service is free and matches can be seen when the person logs on the account or you can get a notice via email.

 

Some sites offer a service with a fee that will place the resume over other applicants giving that person more priority but even that is a not a guarantee that one will get the job.

 

Online job hunting is not just for professionals. It caters to anyone who wants to work either full time, part time or on a per project or contract/consultant basis.

 

Applying online is not only done through job sites. You can also check the websites of companies that usually have a section on careers to see what openings are available. You simply have to go through the process of giving certain information and uploading your resume.

 

There are many jobs available in the market. The internet has made it easier for companies to make people aware that there are vacancies available. It has also made it convenient for applicants to apply online instead of walking to an office and dropping of a resume. With everything that is just a mouse click away, all it takes is a little effort on one’s part to sit down in front of a computer and looking for a job.
