'Wide searches needed' for grad jobseekers

Published: Monday, 22 December 2008   Category: Career Advice

Graduate job applicants must ensure they look at all possible job sites to improve their chances of success, it has been claimed.

According to David Hurst, managing director of Onrec.com, candidates can make the most of their online job search during such competitive times by looking at a wider range of sites.

He added: "The trick will be searching the internet for the best place to find a job which might mean putting your CV on general sites where people might find you, and also looking on a wider range of job boards including niche job boards which may be specific to your skill sets.

Mr Hurst suggested that it was necessary to seek every possible advantage when looking for jobs – such as finding job advertisements online which other candidates may not have access to – due to the large numbers of people looking for work at present.

According to the Monster Employment Index, demand for workers surged in the healthcare sector for the second month in a row, while increases were also seen in telecommunications and education – news which may interest grad jobs hunters.
