Use the internet

Job-boards allow you to search hundreds of roles by industry, location, salary and/or job type. You can also register with these sites to receive daily emails listing jobs that match your specified criteria.

Read a newspaper

Yes, it’s a more traditional way to find a job but national and local newspapers are still a good source of advertised vacancies. They are also an excellent resource for finding out news and information about companies you’d like to work for, as well as industry news.

Read trade publications

Magazines, e-newsletters and professional journals not only advertise current jobs, they also provide a rich source of news and discussion of issues affecting your profession and the wider industry.

Use your network

You can enlist the help of family members, friends and colleagues to keep a lookout for opportunities that match your skills and interests, as well as introducing you to people that can help with your job search. Personal referrals when you apply for jobs don’t go amiss either.
