Ways to Find Careers

Learn popular ways to find careers using job banks and job boards

The most frequently used method for searching for a job is by searching through endless listings on Job Boards or Job Banks in where you search a few key phrases, and then if it’s in a location you wish to work in you fire off your generic resume. You can spend hours hunting and sorting through job postings just to find the perfect role you want. There are plenty of people just like you doing exactly the same thing and the competition on the internet’s largest Job Boards is often overwhelming.

Think of yourself as 1 in 100 applications each time you apply for a career. What will make you better than the rest? Why are you eligible for this role? These are questions you will want to ask yourself before firing off your resume. After all, this will not only save you time, but as well as the person on the other end whose job is to receive these resumes and go through them for the competent applicants.

Some of the largest and most popular Job Boards or Job Banks online are:

  1. The Government Job Bank
  2. Workopolis
  3. Monster

There are a large number of smaller job boards that narrow down your search by only specializing in specific industries. Such as Engineering Careers, Finance Careers, or Call Centre Careers etc. If you know your field, try searching the more customized job boards. Your industry might have an organization that represents your group at large and which may have its own job board. No matter which job board or job bank you choose to search, remember that you need to be qualified for the posting before you decide to apply.

Another evolving trend is a site that allows employers to create free postings. It is not uncommon for some employers to post job ads on Kijiji or Craig’s List, so you may want to check those out too.
