Ten Tips for a Successful Online Job Search

Use these tips to search for jobs more effectively and increase your odds of getting hired:

1. Choose Job Sites Carefully

Jobs are listed on thousands of different websites, so be selective about which ones you use. Try to use job site which has jobs specifically for location you would like. This will save you time and effort.

2. Refine Your Job Search

Search using keywords and add more terms to narrow your search.

3. Set up Email Job Alerts

Signup to receive email job alerts. This will help you apply for jobs as soon as they are posted.

4. Keep it Focused!

Only apply to jobs you are qualified for. Companies notice candidates with the skills and experience they're looking for. If you don't have these, your resume will be ignored anyway.

5. Watch Out for Scam Job Listings

Be careful if you see job listings promising quick and easy income - they're likely to be scams. Remember there is no shortcut to success.

6. Write a Customized Cover Letter

A well-written cover letter that is customized to the company or individual recipient shows you are serious. Try to show how your qualifications and experience related to the company's needs.

7. Post Your Resume

Posting your resume on good job boards help companies find you online. Bear in mind that anyone may be able to see it, including your current employer.

8. Clean Up Your Act

Check your resume and cover letters for typos and grammatical errors. Use consistent and clear formatting in your resume. Potential employers may look at any online profile of yours, so keep them up-to-date.

9. Do Your Research

Spend time on the company's website and learn as much as you can about the firm's products and services. Read up on company news and trends in the industry - use sites like Wikipedia. Find out who is interviewing if possible and Google their names to learn about them. A small in between chat about a common hobby can turn interview your way. If you know anyone who works at company you are applying to, try to speak with them first for advice.

10. Know Your Salary

Once company is ready to make you an offer, they're likely to discuss your salary needs. If you're armed with objective salary information, you'll be in a better position to negotiate.
