Urgently need a job! Active Search Methods
Start by defining the requirements for future work. Often, in order to expand your employment opportunities, you have to consider not only those vacancies where you can use existing skills, but also new professions for you that require retraining. Be prepared for the fact that you have to relearn directly in the course of performing professional duties.
Engage the most accessible source of information - your social circle. Survey your relatives, friends and acquaintances to find out if they can not help you with employment. Very often, personal recommendations and connections can have a greater effect than any beautifully designed resume or list of past achievements, directed to the management of companies in which no one knows you personally.
Regularly browse free classifieds newspapers and specialized publications that post ads about current vacancies. Carefully consider the information gathered from radio and television. Do not neglect the street ads - no one knows where you come across an interesting offer that suits you.
If you confidently handle a computer, check the list of vacancies on the main Internet resources dedicated to employment. Many paper publications have electronic counterparts, where labor market information is updated much more frequently. When searching, pay attention to the date of the announcement that interested you, since many messages may be outdated.
Place in the media (in newspapers ads, on specialized Internet portals) announcement of a job search. Specify the nature of the work you want to receive, other conditions relevant to you, as well as your contact details. The announcement must combine brevity and at the same time the utmost information.
Get registered in the employment service of your region. This will allow you to get not only the status of unemployed, but also free access to the job bank, and in some cases even get free training in a new specialty for you, but in demand in the market.
Contact one or more recruitment agencies. Consider that their services are paid: some agencies charge for placing you in the candidate database, others prefer to charge a percentage of your salary in case of successful employment. Check this point before signing the documents.
Remember that under a rolling stone water does not flow. Your search will succeed only if you analyze the current life situation, assess your capabilities, remove unnecessary restrictions and take specific active steps to find a job.
