Urgently need work! Active Search Methods
Begin by defining the requirements that you make for future work. Often, in order to expand their employment opportunities, you have to consider not only those vacancies where you can use existing skills, but also new professions that require you to retrain. Be prepared for the fact that you will have to retrain directly in the course of performing professional duties.
Use the most accessible source of information - your social circle. Ask your relatives, friends and acquaintances to find out if they can help you with finding a job. 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 watch the newspapers of free ads and specialized publications, which contain announcements about current vacancies. Carefully refer to the information gleaned from the radio and television. Do not neglect street ads - no one knows where you will come across an interesting offer that suits you.
If you are confident with the computer, check the list of vacancies on the main Internet resources dedicated to employment. Many paper editions have electronic counterparts, where information on the labor market is updated much more often. When searching, pay attention to the date of the advertisement that you are interested in, since many messages may be outdated.
Place an advertisement on the job search in the mass media (in newspaper advertisements, on specialized Internet portals). Specify the nature of the work you wish to receive, other relevant conditions for you, as well as your contact information. The announcement should combine brevity and at the same time limit information.
Be registered in the employment service of the population of your region. This will allow you to get not only the status of unemployed, but also free access to a job bank, and in some cases even to receive free training on a new specialty for you that is in demand on the market.
Contact one or more recruitment agencies. Please note that their services are paid: some agencies charge you for placing you in the candidates' database, while others prefer to charge a percentage of your salary in case of successful employment. Clarify this point before signing the documents.
Remember that under a recumbent stone water does not flow. Your search will come to the end only if you analyze the current life situation, evaluate your possibilities, remove unnecessary restrictions and take specific active actions to find work.
