Ways to Find Careers

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

The most generally used approach for finding a job is by searching through endless listings on Job Boards or Job Banks in where you browse a few key words, and then if it’s somewhere you desire to work in you shoot off your general resume. You can easily spend hours hunting and sorting through job lists just to find the perfect role you want. There are plenty of people like you doing exactly the same thing and the competitiveness on the internet’s largest Job Boards can be 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, it will not only save you time, but as well as the person on the other end whose job is to receive these resumes and sort through them for the qualified candidates.

Some of the leading and most well-known Job Boards or Job Banks online are:

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

There are various smaller job boards that reduce your search by only focusing on specific industries. Such as Engineering Careers, Finance Careers, or Call Centre Careers etc. If you know your field, try searching the more specialized job boards. Your profession might have an organization that represents your group at large and which may have its very 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 make a decision to apply.

One more evolving trend is a website that allows employers to create free postings. It is not unheard of for some employers to post job ads on Kijiji or Craig’s List, so you might want to check those out too.
