Always Move From Industry to a Specific Job search
While searching for employers and opportunities, looking for job listings at several levels, and thinking about moving from industry and resources to specific sites and positions.
- Start with www.indeed.com and www.simplyhired. The following websites allow job seekers to find jobs posted on thousands of company career sites and job boards.
- Make sure to check out the employer’s website, even if you find that they’ve listed jobs in other locations. Job Boards are expensive and companies tend to list more job requirements on their own website.
- Target the online industry journals and newspapers for your profession.
- Scan through the appropriate professional web sites and journals to find job listings marketed to specific jobs, industries, and locations.
- See if you know anyone at the company where you are applying to. If you do, try networking with that individual.
- Even if you don’t know anyone there, maybe you are connected to someone through www.linkedin.com . Another great networking website. If you have a connection on linkedin.com, ask the person to introduce you to the hiring manager.
- Once you have applied to a position, make sure to follow up in a week or two. We always recommend that all our candidates keep track of all the places they have applied to and follow up with the person in charge.

- The Company Website represents 1 in 5 of all external hires (approx 20%).
- Hires attributed to specific Job Boards (Monster.com, CareerBuilder and HotJobs) and generic Niche Boards represent only 12.3% of external hires.
