Graduates told to be focused in online job search

Published: Wednesday, 14 July 2010   Category: Career Advice

Being organised and dedicated with their searching are suggested tips for individuals heading online to locate a potential graduate job.

Writing for the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Amy Lindgren has come up with 15 strategies that job hunters could follow when using the internet to increase their chances of finding employment.

Among her recommendations are to only dedicate a certain amount of time to searching on any given night and only focusing on one or two websites in a session.

Meanwhile, she advises people to keep a pen and paper close by to jot down any passwords for various websites, alongside staying focused and only applying for jobs that tie with any skills accrued.

Ms Lindgren wrote on the news provider: "Are you a marketing professional? Then why are you browsing office management openings?

"Communications jobs might make sense, but HR? Why browse jobs that you don't want and for which you can't compete?"

Neil Munroe, external affairs director at credit experts Equifax, recently warned those using online recruitment sites to be careful when stating their personal details as they could be obtained by hackers.ADNFCR-1068-ID-19889952-ADNFCR
